Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu receives Ilakkiya Chinthani award
The award will be presented on April 12,2013. The author plans to donate the profits that the book has made, to the poor families of the Cauvery Delta region.

Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu received 'Ilkaiya Chinthanai' award for his novel 'Moondram Ulaga Por'. For all that, he is humble, modest, philanthropic and benevolent. His love for Tamils is a saga of its own.

The heart wrenching novel is the story of a poor farmer's son seeing his father committing suicide, and ends with him killing his son for the soil. The untold misery of the farmers. Vaiamuthu had covered only a small portion of fiction in it.

The author says, "I have planned to donate all the profits that the book has made, to the poor families of the Cauvery Delta region".

"The farmers committed suicide due to their crops and allied investments going waste. I shall give each family 1 lakh rupees, thus dividing the 11 lakhs profit among 11 needy families" he added.
