Vairamuthu’s noble gesture

Veteran lyricist Vairamuthu distributed the revenue earned through his latest book Moonraam Ulaga Por to the families of the Cauvery delta farmers who had committed suicide.

At a function held in Chennai on Friday, the lyricist gave Rs one lakh each to 11 families. The event was attended by veterans such as Tamilaruvi Manian, Neela Padmanabhan, Avvai Natarajan and others.

‘I am distributing the profit that I earned through the novel among the families of the Cauvery delta farmers who had committed suicide on learning their crop going waste.

Im informing that Rs 11 lakh will be given to eleven languishing families at Rs one lakh each,’ Vairamuthu said, in a release earlier.
