12 Angry Men

Can anyone believe this? An entire movie, which is shot inside  a single room would become one of the classics, and yet become a top grosser?  Can a 1957  movie  still be relevant?  Is that possible? The answer is yes, and the celluloid classic is 12 Angry Men from the director Sidney Lumet, produced by Henry Fonda, who also starred in the lead character.  In one word this movie just stripped off the American Judiciary.  The movie begins with the Judge's order to deliberate a case of a young man who was acquiesced of stabbing his own father to death.   The Judge asks the members of Jury to give an unanimous verdict, and the poor boy's face fades out as the Juries assembles themselves inside their room.  Except only one of the juries all the members decide that the lad is guilty. Only one man differs and he argues with the fellow members and eventually lead to the acquittal of the lad.  What makes this film so special and very relevant even today is the way it handles the charac

A House of Hope

Vallalaar Maanvar Illam is an humane endeavor by the disciples of Ramalinga Vallalaar, a sage who cared for the people’s hunger. Vallalar is known for his preaching against killing animals for food. He had formed a temple in Vadalur, and light up a lamp and named it Arut Perum Jothi.  His school of thought and practice of worshiping the light is called Sathya Sanmarkka Sabai. He has written a most wonderful Tamil Poetry “Thiruarutpa”. His disciples started to spread his ideals and moved around the nation, two of them reached a little pamphlet Mathur and started spreading Vallalaar’s message.

Later the election commission announced that  there is no such act on their behalf to stop the book and cancel the function. They gave their announcement only after the publishing house had told their friends that their function was cancelled. Even after such a
