காலத்தை வென்றவன் - The Reborn King

Sri MGR Year 104, 17th January, Sunday

A fantastic documentary by Kumkumam Sundarrajan on the most turbulent period for MGR and MGR fans, October 1984 to Feb 1985. The documentary is nicely edited with clips of Apollo Hospital, prayers rendered by people from all walks of life, interviews given by Doctors who have treated MGR, and explanations given by Dr.Hande. 

Below is the Documentary from Youtuber Tamizh.xyz, titled Kalathai Vendravan (காலத்தை வென்றவன்)


Intro and Epilogue are given by Makkal Neethi Mayyam Leader Kamal Hassan. 

While watching the video my eyes glistened a couple of times. How many times you shed tears?

Phillumeny

 Sri MGR Year 103rd, 26th November, Thursday

Phillumeny is the hobby of collecting matchboxes, matchbooks, match covers, and labels. In India we mostly use matchbox. In 1980s movies we can see matchbooks one such appears in Superman III the character Gus Gormon (Richard Pryor) after been rejected for paycheques that were given to unemployed people, to lit a cigarette he borrows a matchbook from a stranger (image given below)


Coming back to Phillumeny a person who collects such items is called Phillumenist. From Facebook Indian Phillumenists page, I got one matchbox cover showing,
