Shriram Ilakkiya Kazhagam, a part of Shriram Group recently organised Thirukkural Elocution and Drawing contest for school and college students, at the Suburban Higher Secondary School, Coimbatore. Around 184 (one hundred and eighty-four) students participated in this competition.
While addressing the students during the event, Chief guest R. Kumar, Kovai Puthur – Tamil Nadu Special Police Force Deputy Superintendent of Police said, “Do not spread unverified messages through WhatsApp”
“As stated by Thiruvalluvar in the Kural – ‘Epporul yaar yaar vaai ketpinum apporul meipporul kaanbadhu arivu’, no matter what anyone says, it is knowledge to find the truth. Do not forward anything over WhatsApp without verifying its authenticity” he added.
He motivated them saying, “Though the job of a Police is a difficult one, it is public service work. I like doing this job. I have more khaki uniforms than colour shirts. It shows my involvement. Every day we start our work by reciting a Thirukkural.”
