An Emotional Moment

Sri MGR Year 102, 24th May, Friday


The fame of the Late M.G.Ramachandran goes beyond Tamil Nadu. His charisma as an actor led to a phenomenal political success. 

Recently his statue was opened in Malaysia and the person called upon to do it was K.P.Ramakrishnan, MGR's trusted lieutenant of 40 years. The statue was installed by MGR welfare House in Taiping. It is an association, which has been doing social service for the past many years. Unveiling the statue, KPR, who as the personal bodyguard was MGR's shadow, observed that he considered it an honour to be given opportunity. He recalled several anecdotes, which endeared the late MGR to thousands of followers.

The function was attended by celebrities in Malaysia and from the South India. An exhibition of photographs captured the attention of visitors. Artistes entertained the audience by dancing to some of the popular songs from MGR's films.

The article and some images from the function shared by K.P.Ramakrishnan's son R.Govindaraj are given below.

Dr. Hande's Role

Sri MGR Year 102, 14th May, Tuesday



A tear jerker book on three-month critical period of MGR life in 1984. This book is a treasure trove of information pertaining to the treatment given to MGR in India and abroad.

Book Title "The Critical Years Of An Immortal Legend"


I was little astonished that how MGR's doctor did not took any steps from September 15th to October 4th on health issues that have arised during the function in Thanjavur, Dr. Hande has clearly stated that in the blood test the creatinine level is higher in Puratchi Thalaivar MGR blood on September 15th. In medical terms the urine should have high level of creatinine and blood should have low level, if blood test shows high level of creatinine it means the kidney is not functioning properly, it was a clear message that MGR's doctor should have checked his kidneys, unfortunately nothing was done. 

This book can be developed into a wed series so much info packed nicely. The author who was also the Health Minister in MGR's cabinet his role on timely intervention of assembling not only doctors but also engineers who gave crucial advice of how to make air travel of MGR safely are neatly given.
MGR fans will shed tears in couple of chapters for sure. In two chapters my eyes welled up and I was not able to continue my read. 

The help MGR has given to many took shape in helping him back when the situation was worse. Timely diagnostic help of Dr. Kanu from Japan his episode of single passenger flight through Singapore airlines, which I already know during my IATA studies are worth to mention.

In all Dr. Hande has beautifully recorded the extraordinary come back of the legendary MGR from his illness. A collector's edition, a must book for MGR fans.

Loyalty And Royalty

Sri MGR Year 102, 1st May Wednesday


How many of us will extend our earnings to charity? Most of us will share a part from our earning but not all. But when extreme loyalty to Sri MGR the God of the poor can make us to give our entire earning to noble cause.

K.P.Ramakrishnan one of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR's bodyguard have written two interesting books on our Makkal Thilagam MGR tilted "MGR Oru Sagapatham" and "Manitha Punithar MGR" published through Vikatan Publications. 



As when the time came up for renewal in royalty, K.P.Ramakrishnan has asked the publisher to give his royalty amount to Vishrathi Home for the aged. 

K.P.Ramakrishnan with our beloved Leader:









As mentioned earlier his extreme devotion and loyalty to MGR, blessed him to give up his royalty on books to the charity. God bless him and his family.
