Sri MGR Year 94, 17th October, Monday
Today is the 39th Year of formation of ADMK. A political party founded by the people and for the people of Tamil Nadu. October 17th 1972 the day when an Tamil Movie Actor MGR who formed a party "Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam" and turned to be the Greatest, and the ever most Powerful personality in Tamilnadu, October 17th 1972 transformation of MGR from Puratchi Nadigar to Puratchi Thalaivar.
Our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR was the pioneer to form a Political Party and ruled a State for more than 10 years and without any break, a feat unparallel to this day. Many actors followed this idea but was not as successful as our MGR.
This is the special post for the 39th year of ADMK. The party flag with black, white and red used in general but actually it is black and red with a white colour central bust cut of MGR’s mentor Peraringnar Annadurai showing a masonic symbol. The ADMK flag is the only flag in the political world having a Leader on it.
MGR was the first person to use the party flag as logo for his production house Emgeeyar Pictures Private Limited. Until 1972 a Man and a Woman carrying DMK Flag was the logo, in the movie Ulagam Sutrum Valiban released in 1973 the flag was changed to ADMK Flag. When the Man and Woman idols turns the flag was folded in such a way that only the black and red colour was visible then the camera rotates and air gushes to unfurl the flag further to reveal Anna, people applauded now also his fans and devotees continue to do so.
When MGR was ousted from DMK on 10th October 1972 his fans rushed to meet him, all MGR Fans clubs lowered the DMK flag and raised black with a golden lotus as their new flag, the news reached MGR and also he came to know that his fans are very much agitated and some thing has to done. MGR did not started a new party immediately on the report he received, he did not believe what others said even lakhs of his supporters thronged Sathya Studio from 10th October. One of MGR’s friend Mr.Alagarsamy who is now running a project MGR Bio diesel has told me that lakhs and lakhs of people with their vehicle was waiting outside Ramavaram Gardens he also said nowadays we have mobile phones with camera if I had that one on those days I might have captured and showed it to the younger generation what happens when a Mass Leader like MGR was in trouble.
One week MGR toured whole of Tamil Nadu found out the pulse of not only his fans but also the public, what they are feeling. Then on 17th October 1972 the golden words are written in the history ADMK was started a grand meeting was held in Marina K.A.Krishnasamy on his speech mentioned that Puratchi Nadigar title will not be used instead our MGR will be known as Puratchi Thalaivar then lakhs of MGR Fans repeated the title Puratchi Thalaivar. The title Revolutionary Leader MGR made wonders in Tamil Nadu, people believed that MGR will give them a good and honest rule. And MGR fulfilled their wishes and he gave them what they needed and now they revered him as God.
