I adore MGR from my child hood and met him once in Colombo at my Uncle's house (Radio Ceylon Mylvaganam) when he visited with Actress Saroja Devi for dinner. MGR and me are both born in Kandy and all my classmates know very well about my interest in MGR.
After he became the Chief Minister, I had the opportunity to visit him as the Secretary of Ealam Tamil Association of Alberta, Canada, related to Ealam Tamil issue. During 1984, both Indira Gandhi and MGR was closely involved in Sri Lanka issues and both requested us to come up with an constitution similar to Canadian Federal system. The whole world knows, how much MGR was involved with Sri Lankan Tamil issue. If he would have been alive, he would have solved long ago.
He is a wonderful human being beyond imagination and the genuine care he had for the down trodden people was unmatchable. More and more I read about him, my respect continue to increase.
I hope you all continue with these blogs and web sites to teach the younger generation about respect, good habits, great will power to success, and the humbleness even after the great success.
