In her letter, Watts wrote, "Dear Vivek, words really fail to express how touched I am to see the work you have done for the rehabilitation of the Tsunami-hit families in Thevanapattinam, Tamil Nadu. It takes a lot of courage and immense devotion to be able to take up such a responsibility on one's shoulders...As a celebrity it is important for us to realize that we can act as catalysts for change but unfortunately few take any real measures. Your effort to bridge this gap deserves appreciation from all quarters. I salute you on behalf of the entire team of 'The Impossible' for adopting Thevanapattinam and providing relief work to the Tsunami victims."
As our readers might know, Vivek had adopted a village in Tamil Nadu named Thevanapattinam in 2004 and had been involved in providing welfare for the people in that area.
