The death of Powerstar Pawan Kalyan’s fan Viinodh Royaal has took the world by surprise. The untimely death of Viinodh has distressed not only his family but also the entire fan community. At this juncture, heated debates over extremist hero-worship and fan culture is rife all over.
But Viinodh is an exception! He is a 22yr old educated and socially responsible Pawan fan and Janasena member who is working towards creating awareness about organ donation. Even four days back, Viinodh participated in an organ donation program organized in Kolar (Karnataka). Vinod was supposed to leave to the US for further studies in a couple of months but unfortunately he is no more. This is his last FB post –Viinodh has even pledged to donate his eyes after his death. Well if a star hero like Pawan instantly came down to visit his family it doesn’t only speak of his responsibility but indeed volumes about Viinodh too. Anyways we wish the culprits are brought to justice at the earliest and may Viinodh’s soul rest in peace.
Like a major proportion of the fan world, no fan must encourage extremist hero-worship. Before anyone’s fan, we are humans and we need to be heroes for our families. #RestInPeaceViinodh
