Our attempt is to provide the facilities available in the cities in villages so that the migration stops."According to him, to start with they would adopt one village and carry out development activities there."It is not enough to provide laptops to students, but they also need to be taught to use it," he added.Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, the actor said: "Tamizh Thail Vazthu" or song in praise of Mother Tamil should be sung only at proper places.Queried about Kanchipuram Sankara Mutt's Junior Pontiff Sankara Vijayendra Sarasvati not standing up when the "Tamizh Thai Vazthu" was sung at a function here, Haasan said the seer's duty might be to mediate and his (actor's) duty was to stand up.--IANSvj/nir/mr
