Lini Puthussery The 28-year old nurse had died after caring for the first known casualty of the Nipah outbreak that has so far claimed 16 lives in the north Kerala districts of Kozhikode and Malappuram.

Giving her a deserving salute, The Economist has featured Kerala nurse Lini Puthussery, who lost her life to the Nipah infection, in their obituary section.

The 28-year old nurse had died after caring for the first known casualty of the Nipah outbreak that has so far claimed 16 lives in the north Kerala districts of Kozhikode and Malappuram.

The obit said that the young woman, who was a contract employee at the hospital had done just what she should and her death epitomised the sense of selfless service.

Lini's moving note to her husband Sajeesh, from her death bed, and her life found its way to the world's top publication's obit page that has featured the likes of Sreedevi and Stephen Hawkings.

Not just her service and sacrifice, the obit also shared with the world the modest dreams the young nurse nurtured and the blissful details of her simple life at Perambra, her hometown.

The account also lauded the passion and spirit exhibited by Lini and the many ways the public-spirited nurse stood apart with her sincerity and commitment.

And not to miss, the obit also carries the lingering dreams she left behind, of a better job, a life with her expat husband and a bright future for her two little boys.

The mother of two was the fourth victim of the infection that continues to keep the state on its toes due to its mystery character.
