IF only that borewell was shut— Vikram Prabhu (@iamVikramPrabhu) October 29, 2019
IF only there was a faster response
IF only there was better technology
So many IF’s for just this one incident that took an innocent child.

சிறுவன் சுஜித்தின் உலகில் நாம் அனைவருமே குற்றவாளிகள். 'இனி இப்படியொரு சம்பவம் நிகழக்கூடாது' என்பதற்கான அடையாளமாக சுஜித்தின் மரணத்தை மனதில் ஏந்தி, அரசு தன் நடவடிக்கைகளைத் தீவிரப்படுத்த வேண்டும். நீ எங்கள் மனதில் வாழ்வாய் சுஜித், போய் வா. என் அஞ்சலிகள்.— Udhay (@Udhaystalin) October 29, 2019
