R Parthiban throws strong questions at the government after the damages caused by Cyclone Michaung

R Parthiban is a distinct and versatile filmmaker in Tamil cinema. He has been providing support and help to the people affected by the floods of Cyclone Michaung in Chennai and other districts for the past few days. The actor-director strongly condemned the government in a social media post this morning.

Parthiban's question to the government is going viral now. Here's a rough translation of R Parthiban's new statement:

"Good morning friends,
Yesterday, I got very emotional over the pitiful condition of the people. I am not blaming anyone in narrow-scale politics like town and district. I see from a bird's eye view. Why this plight? Not only in Chennai but also in Mumbai (the state where rich crocodiles cross the road) which has recently become an unimaginable bomb pit. As an individual, as Tamil Nadu, as the superpower(?) country, India is a self-sufficient (non-water draining) country! Why should we spend billions of dollars to send Chandrayaan to the Moon and Chengalvarayan to Mars to find out whether there is water? Can't we take a plastic boat close to Lake View apartments in Velachery to check on the flood water?

High-speed bullet train and cutting-edge technological progress. May buffalo urinate in India's future pride! Basic needs, employment opportunities, road facilities, clean air, resilient power against natural disasters and a state in which poor people can live with dignity without begging for anything. All the tax money provided should be used for these before making a rocket! How we breathed a sigh of relief when 41 lives trapped in a mine were rescued. But in the ignominy of not being able to rescue so many crores of lives from India's mine, what are the purposes of Independence Day, tricolour candies and republican bike adventure celebration expenses? When you can't afford to buy ration rice, Why a fashion show? Sleep is lost in a thousand questions like this.

The food packets provided by me, KPY Bala and Aranthangi Nisha might be one of the news but it does not bring food to the table. Recently I was telling Keerthana… In 50 years from my time, India will still see amazing developments like flying cars (now floating cars). More than that… the poverty line and the few skeletons below it must change on the map of India. (I'm not blaming the politicians but the Economic politics. To fix this, Visionary altruists are needed) This is a personal opinion so may be wrong. If so don't mind. Let's do what we can today to reduce risk!" (sic)
