A Day In Mahe

Sri MGR Year 99, 20th September, Tuesday

After formation of ADMK party by our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR, the party for the first time in 1973 contested in Dindukal election, ADMK receivied substantial amount of votes and won the contest.

In the year 1974, the Election Commission announced that Puducherry Parliament and Assembly elections are to be held simultaneously. ADMK and  alliance Communist Party of India contested. The Union Territory of Pondicherry has four districts, two are in Tamil Nadu, one district in Andhra Pradesh called Yanam and another district Mahe in Kerala.

On campaign MGR was welcomed by the mass. On looking at people surge MGR predicted that ADMK will form the Governmnet in Puducherry. On the next part of the campaign MGR went to Mahe which is in Kerala, there the crowd requested MGR to speak in Malayalam. Without any hesitation MGR replied in Tamil that, “I know only one language, I grew, I gained popularity and now I am standing before you all is due to Tamil Nadu only. How is it possible for me to speak without knowing the lanuage? If you are interested please listen to my Tamil speech, if you are unwilling for my Tamil speech you can leave.”

K.P.Ramakrishnan, MGR’s body guard who was with him during the campaign has written the Mahe incident along with Pondicherry election in Kalki magazine in 2009. His son Govindaraj has sent the article to share in our MGR blog. Below is the full incident of Puducherry election.

Captain Blood

Sri MGR Year 99, 9th September, Friday

Couple of days back I again watched Errol Flynn starrer Captain Blood. During the Golden Jubilee post about Ayirathil Oruvan last year I planned to publish the post about the differences between the two movies Captain Blood and our Puratchi Thalaivar Ayirathil Oruvan. As some of them in the internet has wrongly published that MGR copied every antics of Errol Flynn from Captain Blood. And moreover MGR’s sword fight is not that good when compared to Errol Flynn.


After the watching Captain Blood I was in rage and wanted to publish the post on that day as the movie looked like a water downed version of Ayirathil Oruvan. But I took some time to cool. And now after watching it for second time I choose not to write because the English movie is based on the story of Rafael Sabatini. For cinema they take some liberty to cut short and change the scenario to suit the mind of director or producer for that I had purchased the novel and going through. Coming week I will publish the post and will point out similarities and variation between these two movies.

Below is the trailer:

Michael MacMillan

Sri MGR Year 99, 10th August, Wednesday

The title of the post might confuse you. What is the connection of Michael with our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR? Michael MacMillan also known as Mike is a fictional character the protagonist of space opera trilogy "Twisted Spaces". The book is authored by K.N.Abel and edited by Rosi Milligan. 

In the story Michael MacMillan is one of the Special Ops and his team Twisted Spaces designs a Spaceship with light drive system within five years, their long term plan is to travel interstellar and make a colony in Mars. His vision of interstellar travel is based on the works of Burkhard Heims quantum field theory. 

The story is a heavy weight science fiction novel, now you might feel what is this supposed to do with our MGR? The characterization of Michael MacMillan closely resembles Manimaran character from Ayirathil Oruvan movie and some real traits of MGR.

Michael's vision is to unify the different races of the world and use his gravity based light drive system, his desire is that human kind should conquer space. The author has created Michael MacMillan character with world leadership qualities. The character shrewdness are perfect example of how MGR in real life used to tackle the dire situations thrown by his adversaries.

I like to point out one small dialogue of Michael, "survival of the many always supersedes survival of the one" did it ring a bell? the dialogue that MGR speaks in Ayirathil Oruvan when the pirate ship is being aimed by canons by Ramadoss and he gives an option to MGR to return to the island or else he will destroy the ship. Now comes that dialogue with a montage of a candle burning in foreground. 

In Twisted Spaces book one the ship has people from different countries one will become a traitor and Michael uses his leadership skill by pardoning him (which I do not have to mention that MGR in his life has not only pardoned but also helped them in benevolent ways) 

Puratchi Thalaivar after assuming office as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu included  abled and experienced persons in his administration. Michael also exhibits the same kind of attitude in giving commanding positions to experienced and abled astronauts in his ship.

While reading the book I felt that I am reading an English novel of MGR as the hero.  You also will get the same feeling, try this novel.
