It is TIME to GIVE BACK to Divya Bharathi
- Admin - www.thoothoor.com
Added @ 30-06-2021@18.38.03(IST)
  
The impact that the documentary 'Orutharum Varela' and the songs in it had created is huge and every single credit for this goes to the strong lady, Divya Bharathi. Came from a poor family in a faraway village near Madurai and had documented our sufferings during the Ockhi disaster itself is a tall testimony for her genuineness and values. Currently, Divya Bharathi is appealing to everyone for help through crowdfunding (target: 12 lacs) to keep her ambitions going and move ahead in the journey. Let us help, whatever small or big the amount is. Crowdfunding link is given below...

Thoothoor region fishermen to return the Satellite phones to the Govt in protest of tariff hike
- Admin - www.thoothoor.com
Added @ 11-06-2021@11.10.54(IST)
  
Since 2019, our deep-sea fishermen have been using Satellite phones which was a scheme by Tamilnadu State Disaster Management Authority. Though the operation cost for these phones was high, deep-sea boats used them as these Satellite phones were more helpful for communication at the time of natural calamity and other emergencies. Now the government has increased the annual tariff from Rs. 14,172 to Rs. 42,492 all of a sudden, and on top of it there is a call cost of Rs 18/- per minute. This becomes a huge burden to the fishermen at the time of many other sufferings due to cyclones and the pandemic. Hence, Thoothoor region fishermen have decided to return the Satellite phones to the Government in protest of this huge tariff hike unless the tariff hike is withdrawn in due time.

TN Govt released guidelines to correct the wrong electricity bills
- Admin - www.thoothoor.com
Added @ 28-05-2021@14.27.14(IST)
  
Tamilnadu electricity board has sent electricity bills to all consumers this week in our region. Many people complained that a huge bill amount has been marked in most of these bills. In Thoothoor, most of the bill amount came were 2 times, 3 times, 5 times higher than the actual. In one case, a bill amount of Rs 11,000 sent for a house that is mostly locked for two months. People are shocked to see this and are struggling to resolve this. Though the government has given guidelines to refer the consumption units either from the previous month's bill (March-2021) or previous year's bill (May-2020) to calculate the amount, the issued bills have totally different consumption units mentioned and huge bill amount.

The situation is the same all over Tamilnadu. Hence, the TN government has issued a new guideline to EB to accept the self-evaluation of meter reading. For this, people are asked to send the meter reading to the AE of their region, and after this, a new corrected bill will be issued. The email-id of Namboly AE is given below. We have confirmed and verified that THIS OPTION WORKED TOO!. So, if somebody is facing this problem, please do send the current meter reading along with the supporting photo to the below-mentioned Namboly AE's email-id and get your bill corrected.

Heavy wind and rain across Coastal Kanyakumari leaves severe damages
- Admin - www.thoothoor.com
Added @ 15-05-2021@13.40.20(IST)
  
Due to the effect of the low-pressure area along the Arabian sea, coastal Kanyakumari including Thoothoor region is experiencing heavy wind and rain for 3 days. The wind and raining were very hard yesterday Friday, in which around 7 houses along the beach in Thoothoor got severely damaged. The electricity supply was disconnected as many electric poles were fell down due to the heavy wind in addition to cell phone connectivity problem. Today, electricity is restored partially. But the raining and cloudy weather continues. Meanwhile, the Central Water Commission has also issued an 'orange bulletin' for Kerala and Tamil Nadu, saying severe flood is expected due to the cyclonic storm.

As already announced by India Meteorological Department (IMD), this low-pressure is getting closer to become a cyclonic storm which will be named Cyclone Tauktae. Information about the cyclone has been passed to almost all deep-sea venturing boats and they are all moving to safe points away from the cyclone path. As of 15-05-2021 today morning, 12 Thoothoor boats are still not in contact, the remaining boats are all in contact and they are moving to safe points.

2021's first Cyclone, 'Cyclone Tauktae' is coming as a danger if it intensifies
- Admin - www.thoothoor.com
Added @ 12-05-2021@22.31.47(IST)
  
India Meteorological Department (IMD) has said that a low-pressure area was very likely to form over the southeast Arabian Sea on 14th May. According to IMD, this will move towards the Lakshadweep area and intensify gradually to become a Cyclone unless it weakens before it.

According to fishermen activists, our deep-sea fishermen are mostly camping in this sea area and are busy in fish catchings before the start of the ban period. Hence proper efforts are needed to alert and instruct them to move towards safe locations depending on the way of the Cyclone. The government and Coast guard are making efforts to communicate the message to deep-sea boats.

- Admin - www.thoothoor.com
Added @ 07-05-2021@12.01.19(IST)
  
Mr. Joseph Ouseph from Eraviputhenthurai has been promoted to AC - Assistant Commandant in the Border Security Force. AC rank in Central Armed Police Forces is equivalent to ACP or DSP in Police rank and equivalent to Lieutenant in Army rank.

Assistant Commandants in Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) are directly appointed through the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), which Mr. Joseph Ouseph achieved through his hard work in BSF. When Joseph Ouseph joined BSF in early 2000 as a footballer, he helped BSF winning few prestigious soccer leagues and thus gained good attention at that young age itself. His journey in BSF from a football player to Assistant Commandant is a motivation for youths from our locality. Let us congratulate him on this accomplishment.

- Kumar Kaspar
Added @ 28-04-2021@10.22.00(IST)
Last Updated @ 28-04-2021@20.58.08(IST)
  
The day 28th April begins with one good news for every one of us that all the 11 Vallavilai fishermen are safe. According to the information received, the ship hit the Mercedes boat in which the steering room (Wheel-House) and a minor top part of the boat alone was damaged. All 11 fishermen jumped into the sea and later boarded the floating boat. They could not send messages to other boats as the wireless devices were lost. Luckily one of the country boats attached to the boat was not damaged which had a GPS and using that GPS they moved towards the Indian shore. As soon as they reached Lakshadeep mobile network on their way, they informed about their safety to their relatives. Now all 11 fishermen are returning to Indian shore on their Mercedes boat also with one country boat.

It was also notable that the search operation by the government and the fellow fishermen were excellent this time. But since the victims moved away from the location on their boat, they could not be found by the rescue team. Let us Thank God!

A Vallavilai boat found sunk off Karnataka sea and all 11 fishermen missing; Hit by ship suspected

A boat from Vallavilai named 'Mercedes' went fishing from Thengapattinam harbor on 9th April along with 11 fishermen from Vallavilai. They were in wireless contact with other boats until 23rd April. On 24th noon, another boat in the same sea area found broken parts of the Mercedes boat and suspected something wrong. Immediately they informed other boats and started the search operation. In the further search operation, more and more broken pieces of this boat and broken pieces of one of the country boats that was attached to this Mercedes boat were found but none of the missing fishermen were traced. People suspect this could be another ship hit accident. Tho whole of Thoothoor region particularly the Vallavilai village is being more tensed due to this tragedy. The one hope left is that one more country boat that was attached to this boat is also missing along with these fishermen. So people are hoping that the missing fishermen may have boarded this missing country boat with an expectation that some rescuers will reach them.

[UPDATE: 26th APRIL @ 7 PM] Helicopter, coastguard ship, 11 boats, and 20+ country boats are involved in the search operation since 24th April. According to sources, there are no improvements in the search operation until 26th April noon. People are losing hope as time passes by.

Multiple incidents of attack against fishermen
- Admin - www.thoothoor.com
Added @ 24-01-2021@21.29.17(IST)
  
In different violent incidents, fishermen from Thoothoor were attacked by Kerala fishermen at Cochin and fishermen from Eraviputhenthurai were attacked by northeast labours at Arabian Sea. In the first incident, around 20 Kerala fishermen severely attacked fishermen in a Thoothoor boat after a normal argument. As most of the crew members of this boat were northeast labours, they did not attempt to help these fishermen. In the second incident, a boat from Eraviputhenthurai was sailing in Arabian Sea with 2 Eraviputhenthurai fishermen and the remaining all from the northeast. Within days of sailing, the northeast labours demanded the boat to come back to Cochin. When the two fishermen denied citing the incurred expense for the trip and the ongoing good catching, they threatened to kill them. Since they were just two in numbers, they had no option but to surrender in front of the majority of northeast labours when the northeast labours forcefully drove the boat to Cochin.

These incidents are happening, while the Tamilnadu fishermen are already angry over the recent incident in which 4 Ramanathapuram fishermen were killed by Srilnakan army.

People are angry over these developments and the fishermen activists are discussing the further course of action to stop such incidents from repeating in the future.
