Vivek Oberoi arranges last rites of tsunami victims Cuddalore, Jan 10. (UNI):Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi was visibly moved, as year-and-a-half old Akash, sitting on his mother's lap, today performed the last rites of his elder brother Madivanan killed in the December 26 tsunami. The family belongs to the ravaged Devanampattinam fishermen's hamlet here. Today 45 families performed the last rites for tsunami victims in 37 villages in this district amid the chanting of mantras. The ceremony was arranged by Vivek Oberoi under the auspices of the Yashodhara Oberoi Foundation and India Heritage Research Foundation. This was supervised by Swami Siddhananda Saraswati. Vivek Oberoi's father and actor Suresh Oberoi was also present on the occasion. The ashes of those cremated were recovered and mixed in the sea waters by the family members.

As part of rehabilitation of the ravaged coastal villages, Vivek Oberoi, with the help of the villagers, also planted saplings for improving mangrove forest cover in the area between the sea coast and the villages to shield against similar havoc in the future. "The mangroves will also stand as memory to those who perished in the recent tsunami tragedy," Vivek Oberoi told reporters.
