Tamilnadu Face To Face with Stone Pelting Terrorism

Actor Rajinikanth, addressing the Press at Thuthukudi on May 30 demanded that the photoes of everyone who attacked the police personnel during the May 22 Anti-sterlite demonstration in Thuthukudi (in southern Tamilnadu) be published in newspapers and shown on TV, so that such elements are exposed. He expressed concern over the growth of anti social elements in the state and demanded that they should be put down with an iron hand. Sadly, his was the lone voice in Tamilnadu's public life. Every political celebrity (of DMK, Congress, etc) stops with condemning the police firing that resulted in 13 deaths and fails to even mention the gruesome attack on policemen on duty that day. Eerily, the mode of attack was stone-pelting. Tamilnadu had witnessed broken windshields of buses caused by stone throwing during demonstrations. But on May 22, the nation was shocked to see scores of policemen being pelted with stones by anti social elements on the streets of Thuthukudi. The policemen had to run for their lives. Keen observers point out that the violent stone pelters belong to Tamil separatist, Maoist, Jihadi outfits who had infiltrated easily into the 20,000 strong crowd gathered by the Church. Their thorough preparedness and cruelty matched those of the stone-pelters of Kashmir, hired by foreign funded Jihadi handlers. Such elements raising their heads in Thuthukudi bodes ill for national security because it is a coastal border town of Bharat.

This Village Near Sivakasi Ignites The Imagination

Nallamnaayakanpatti stands out. For one reason: This tiny village, off Sivakasi, famous for fire crackers, has ignited the imagination of social workers. Perennially suffering from water shortage for the past 20 years as the nature of land itself is dry, people of this village found a way out diligently. Instead of depending on Government aid, all the 600 families in the village sat together and decided to buy and install a water machine through crowdfunding. The individual family could get water by swiping a smart card. Once this smart card is swiped and scanned, water gets released to the card holder as per requirement just like cash out of the ATM. No maximum number of pots per family was fixed. Later it was felt that this led to shortage of water and they rationed the quantity of water per smart card / family, which brought about self-sufficiency. This rationing also enabled them to supply the excess stored water to the Primary Health Centre, school and library in the village. The highlight is that the villagers never thought of hitting the road with empty pots by way of protest against water scarcity. Instead, they put their heads together and found a permanent solution to the problem. For this they raised their own fund instead of depending on a Government grant. To top it all, the water that they get is FREE OF COST.

Is Tamilnadu in for a subtle anti Hindu invasion?

Of course these are isolated incidents: 1. A centuries old Ganesa temple near Tirunelveli is targeted for sacrilege by imposing a Christian cemetery close to it. 2. Christians object to religious procession of devotees carrying idol of Thanjavur big temple to pass through their street. 3. A group of nuns barge into the Ranganatha temple in Srirangam claiming that they were there to see temple architecture. 4. A footwear is thrown inside the sanctum of Ranganatha temple by a person whom police rush to describe as mentally deranged. One is led to ask: Tamilnadu seems to be in for a subtle invasion on Hindu belief and temples?
