Suriya's Kaappaan movie scene happens in real life - locust attack in India | Videos Go Viral
2020 is indeed turning out to be a nightmare for India. As we all know, the Corona cases are on a constant rise and the economy has also been badly affected with lakhs and lakhs of people losing their jobs. Amidst all these crisis, here is one more serious issue that is expected to badly affect India in the coming months - LOCUST ATTACK. Well, what is a locust attack and how does it going to affect us? Locusts are a certain type of species from the family of Grasshoppers that have a swarming characteristic feature. These locusts form a group and attack all the crops and vegetation lands that in turn becomes a huge threat to agriculture. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) describe locust insects as the oldest migratory pests in the world. The desert locust, which is considered to be the deadliest type and has the ability to migrate from country to country, has entered India recently and the effects are slowly showing up.
The locusts entered the city of Jaipur yesterday (May 25) and it has come as a big shocker for the entire country. Experts opine that it is going to be the worst locust attack in the past 26 years and we aren’t sure how badly it is going to affect the agricultural economy of the country. As of now, the locusts have entered the states of Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh. Delhi has already been alerted and if things go out of control, the locust swarms might enter the Southern part of India, as well. The photos and videos of locust insects forming groups and attacking the crops have already been doing rounds on social media and it definitely seems to be a serious problem.
These videos have also made people remember the Tamil film, Kaappaan, that starred Suriya in the lead role. Wonder how Kaappaan is connected to this locust attack? Director K.V.Anand had created an awareness among the people about the locust attacks, citing it as a biowar in the agricultural sector. The film also had scenes involving these insects attacking the crops and creating a huge damage to the farmers and people of the country. Suriya played the role of a farmer in the film. Maybe, after this real life incident, people might recollect the scene and understand the connect. The social media is already abuzz about this and people are raving the writers of Kaappaan (K.V.Anand - Pattukkottai Prabakar) for bringing these serious issues to the light.
Movies have always been a reflection of the society and looking at a positive angle, it has helped in creating an awareness among the people about lesser known or unknown incidents. On that note, Kaappaan has helped people know about this locust attack, which is the current hot topic throughout the nation. If the crops and agricultural lands get affected because of this locust attack, it is going to affect the agricultural economy and in worst case, it would inturn affect the livelihood of people, as well. You can watch the locust attack videos and the Kaappaan reference videos below:
