Tamil screenwriter-director Arunraja Kamaraj and his wife tested positive for coronavirus. Arunraja who is recovering from coronavirus, on Monday made a heartfelt note grieving the death of his wife Sindhuja. He also appealed to public to follow the norms and remain cautious against the virus.
The appeal made by Kamaraj was after the news of his wife demise. She passed away due to Covid-19 related complications last week. Arunraja and Sindhuja had tested positive for Covid-19 and were hospitalised a couple of weeks ago. While Arunraja responded well to the treatment, Sindhuja succumbed to the infection. The devastating part was to his wife succumbing to death, he said “I saw my own eyes the life of my wife being crushed and thrown out.” Kamaraj noted that only then he realized the gravity of the situation that we are in today. He said despite the prayers and the best efforts of everybody around them, coronavirus still managed to claim the life of his wife. The director said that one should not just strive to protect the lives of only his or her friends and family, but work towards safeguarding everyone’s life. He called for unity, cutting across all barriers to overcome this unprecedented challenge.
Arunraja Kamaraj further urged people not to take coronavirus lightly any longer. He added to his note writing “If we still can’t unite in our spirit, understand that no man is an island, the virus will win again.” He also suggested that even God can’t help us if we don’t rise through our differences and fight this virus together. Arunraja ended his note thanking the healthcare staff and frontline workers.
