Sri MGR Year 97, 30th April, Wednesday
A few months ago MGR fan from France, Mr.Ferdinand shared some of his sketches to me. Due to bandwidth problem I was not able to upload any of his sketches in our blog.
Mr.Ferdinand at the age of 4 came to India for the first time in 1974 with his parents and his little brother on his holiday trip. On his return to France he watched our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR movies Urimai Kural and Sirithu Vazha Vendum.
His second travel to India was in 1979, when our beloved Leader was the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. In that age he started to draw MGR images, he says that was his turning point in his life. He came to understand many things about our Thalaivar. He became a Thalaivar fan by his uncle who is also an ardent MGR fan.
His favourite MGR songs are the philosophical song “Annamittakai Nammai” from the movie Annamittakai and “Yennai Theriyuma” from Kudieruntha Kovil.
He says he has 600 plus such drawings and sketches of Thalaivar what we see is the tip of the ice berg. Due to image upload factor I had posted only some images.
I request Mr.Ferdinand to put an exhibition of his work in France or in India.
