Sri MGR Year 98, 6th June, Saturday
Some incidents that showed MGR’s patriotism is well known to general public such as his donation of Rs.75,000 during Indo China war in 1962 and Indo Pakistan war in 1965.
Our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR’s patriotism has bloomed when he was 12 years old and another incident of MGR donating 2 Annas (that is the only amount he had in his pocket) to Mahatma Gandhi who has asked the people to donate generously towards earthquake relief fund.
This Karaikudi incident was already narrated by MGR’s bodyguard K.P.Ramakrishnan during his speech in one of MGR’s birthday function, which I had already uploaded in our MGR blog.
Below is an article written by Govindaraj from the assistance of his father and MGR’s personal body guard K.P.Ramakrishnan in Agnimalargal issue dated April 2014.
