'Compassion and Love trademark of Kozhikode': The Hindu

CD of film on project to help lesser privileged released

Minister for Social Justice and Panchayats M.K. Muneer released the CD of ‘Karuna Cheyvan’, a short film on the message of the Kozhikode District Administration’s project ‘Compassionate Kozhikode’, intended to link those who like to help with those who need help.

In his address, Dr. Muneer said that the short film was an inspiration to those who wish to see a compassionate society around them. “Compassion and love have always been the trademark of Kozhikode. The autorikshaw driver Noushad, who recently sacrificed his life to save two people in a manhole, is a perfect example of the spirit of Kozhikode,” he said and added that the State government had plans to expand the Compassionate Kozhikode project as ‘Compassionate Kerala’ project.

‘Capital of love’

Vice Chancellor of Thunchath Ezhuthachan Malayalam University K. Jayakumar delivered the keynote address. “The biggest achievement of the Compassionate Kozhikode project is that the district administration has succeeded in convincing the public that it would support them at all times. The project has in it everything that makes this district vibrant and humane. Kozhikode is the capital of love and has the power to bring out all the goodness in people. Living for others is ultimate spirituality,” he said.

Mayor V.K.C. Mammed Koya presided over the function. District Collector N. Prashanth and Sub Collector K. Gopalakrishnan were present.

Written and directed by Mr. Prashanth, the film carries the message that small actions can cause smiles on the faces of the lesser privileged and that such actions will benefit the benefactors more.

Krishnan Sethukumar is the producer and Rajeev Vijay, the cinematographer. Music is by Sudeep Palanad.
