It doesn’t take much time to get viral these days. The recent book release by renowned writer Vairamuthu titled Moondram Ulaga Por, which talks about ecological issues and climate change the earth faces in modern times was launched on July 13th at Kamarajar Arangam, Chennai.
It was a mega event attended by the who of who in Kollywood. As expected thousands of people from across Tamil Nadu had gathered at the venue but some of them have leaked the poems online shamelessly. It is hard to find out who it was. The book is a bestseller, and portions of it appeared first in a Tamil weekly. Furious over the leaked copies going viral over the net, Vairamuthu is taking legal help to punish the wrongdoers. He is backed by the cyber police to track down the shameless criminals behind the indecent act. Apparently certain sites are also giving off the entire book for a download. “All those behind the piracy of the book on internet will be dealt severely”, asserts the veteran lyricist.
