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.

Angels of Love - Eniyan

Eniyan Ramamurthy 

Once an employee of an MNC, had a severe health setback, nearly met his death and luckily bounced back. During his recovery period he formed a determination, a decision to go the the children as a story teller and puppeteer. Now he lead a more meaningful life.

As a social activist he involves him in all the rescue operations, right from the accursed floods of  Kerala and Kaja. During this Covid-19 Eniyan is unleashing the potential of connections and carrying out relief works all around Tamil Nadu.

His team has successfully installed community kitchens in several villages and food is prepared and served to the entire village. A step makes me hold my breath for a second.

In Chennai along with the Foodforce team he had supplied food, on 22 April  alone he had provided breakfast for 30 people, and served variety rice lunch for 1150 people, which includes inpatients of 2 hospitals. On the same day this team had provided idlies and biscuit packs as dinner.

Through his friends from various parts of the state he carries out this unmatched service. Aishwarya, his friend in Vellure, had provided food for five families.  Yogi Senthil and Anwarbasha Anwar from Thiruppur delivered funds, Rs.2000 for a family consisting of women.

Thavamuthalvan Devan and George Antoy from Kothagiri even penetrated the dense woods of Kothagiri to provide food for the forest tribes.

Coordinating the Covid relief work  all through the state is really a great thing, and Eniyan does that with ease.

Kudos Eniyan
