Sivakarthikeyan has once again proved that he is the man of the masses. He has let go of his star personality to help a deserving person. Sivakarthikeyan has come forward to take care of the educational expense of Nel Jayaraman’s son. The actor will also fund the amount needed to transfer the body of Jayaraman from Chennai to his native. This is indeed a nobel gesture by the star but before that let’s take a look at who Jayaraman is. He is popularly known as Nel Jayaraman and has planted more than 160 traditional Paddy Seeds. He was suffering from Cancer and passed away in Apollo. A tragic end to a noble soul.
Jayaraman was honoured recently at the success meet of Karthi’s Kadai Kutty Singam which talked about the importance of farming and farmers. Besides Sivakarthikeyan, many other film celebrities including Karthi are planning to help Jayaraman’s family as they feel that the contribution of the farmer to Tamil society is impeccable, Nel Jayaraman is a visionary in the world of farming and has been a major contributor in the revival of organic farming. He was one of the pioneers of Save Our Rice campaign which has led to the revival of organic farming in the state.
Even when he was in bed his only thought was to provide awareness regarding farming. His undying spirit and courage are one the reasons why he had such a massive support among the general public. He had the spirit of a warrior who never gave up. It is only fitting that a real-life hero is being saluted by reel heroes. Only when we encourage such heroes there will be more people taking up farming and work for the betterment of the country. Without farming, there is no development and progress for our country.
