A Moral from Vettaikkaran Movie

A Moral from Vettaikkaran Movie

Yesterday I was viewing a few quick trailers of Vettaikaran Movie and one interesting scene that demonstrates and conveys a very important and an inevitable moral to the mankind that I wanted to share with everyone.

Whilst Vijay ('Police Ravi') is in college attending the class his classmate Uma would come late. For a very casual comment of Uma on the lecturer's callous attitude of shutting down the windows and turning the lecture hall as a sultry oven the lecturer spit angry words on her and she got very depressed. Our hero ('Vijay') reopened the windows and then appealed to the carpenters working downstairs to see if they can reschedule the work a couple of hours later. His friendly appeal worked and they dispersed. He then replies to the lecturer that though the workers are not educated as them they can understand the gentle language of love. But the lecturer took the very harsh tone of scolding his classmate as if she is turning to college only to vile away her time flirting and dating. At least henceforth the lecturer should refrain from making such comments. The lecturer realised her folly and apologized to Uma as well.

Some of the morals from this scene are:

  • Never mock others because of their profession. No profession is mean as long as it is honest and ethical.
  • Dont cultivate the habit of judging people right at the first sight.
  • Dont immediately spit harsh words on others wounding their hearts. Even the wound created by the fire can be healed but the wound created by words are permanent says Thiruvalluvar.
Just thought I would share the eSnips recording of this section for the benefit of mankind. Hear it here.
