Street play marathon titled “Thalaiyaati Bhommaigal” by the team named “Theatre for Rights” from Chennai performed to highlight the issue of GM and state of the farmer today.Colleges visited:

The core of the play has been “GM crops are in Tamil Nadu, and GM can be harmful to your health and farmers livelihood. It is in Coimbatore today and it could be in your plate tomorrow. The reason behind this is the MNC Monsanto and its subsidiary – the state owned “Tamil Nadu Agricultural University”.
