To be or not to be (God)

(This is said by Ravindran one of the story writers of MGR.)
In 1970 MGR was about to act in the Film named "Yesunathar" (JESUS CHRIST) a grand opening for the Movie was held then. MGR gave various poses as JESUS. A month or so, the film was dropped because MGR refused to act. The reasons what do you think will be? That MGR got a low deal or his call sheet problem?


When his story writer Ravindran asked MGR why did he turned down the offer, MGR said when he went to some villages he saw his still he posed as Jesus were used for worshiping. That he doesn't like and that is the reason for turning down the offer.

When I read this 10 years back, I was not aware of the fact, daily I have to go pass over a Cycle store there were 3 photos hanging one was his father, and another was Annadurai and one was Jesus with a garland, as I usually go past the shop one day I went near and saw the photo garlanded was not JESUS it was MGR as Jesus. MGR thinking was right. As I mentioned in my previous Blog MGR used to symbol of cross and kept JESUS Idol in his private room.

Most of us use to wear watch, where? in the Left Hand, ok, MGR wears the watch in the Right Hand and that too over the sleeve, his watch had a big Steel strap (he used for self defense, that watch is now placed in his Memorial house). He is a Watch lover, has a collection of varieties.

A peculiar habit of wearing watch in the Right Hand is followed by most of MGR fans even today, including me!

A general Survey

Alphabet and Tamil


Illiterates of South India definitely know 3 letters in English Language. They are able to identify the 3 letters from other letters and can understand what it is and who it is. The letters are g, m and r. Say MGR.

Few years back I went to a movie and my favourite movie, "உலகம் சுற்றும் வாலிபன்" in English "World Trotting Youth", it was produced and directed by MGR. The title rolls on over Flower background and when the screen illuminated with Tamil words "இயக்குநர் எம்.ஜி.ஆர்" there was pin drop silence. Frames changes to English "Direction MGR" there were roaring whistle and applause.

M, G and R letters added like Adenine-Thyamine, Cytosine-Guanine in the DNA of the Tamils. It is inseparable and entwined.

Statue of MGR

MGR Statue in Parliament

Nine Foot Bronze Statue of M.G.Ramachandran, the Former Chief Minister Tamil Nadu was unveiled in Parliament Complex on 7th December 2006. The Bronze statue was sculpted by Mani Nagappa and was donated by AIADMK. The statue was unveiled by Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee, in the auspicious presence of the Vice President of India Bhairon Singh Shekhawat. The function was presided by National Leaders and various party members. Including BJP Leader L.K.Advani, Union Ministers Mr.Pranab Mukherjee, Mr.P.Chidambaram, Mr.Priyaranjan Dasmunsi and Mr.Jairam Ramesh, MDMK Leader Mr.Vaiko and all the AIADMK MPs and MLAs were present in the function.

A booklet was released on the occasion described Bharat Ratna MGR as a man of the masses who strived for their welfare. He was a remarkable politician, nationalist to the core and visionary Chief Minister. He strived ceaselessly for the betterment and welfare of the people, particularly the poor. A renowned actor, MGR propagated, through his films, high ideals, which he hoped would take root among the people. His Chief Ministership was recongnised for its contribution to the growth of higher education, systematic rural development, the mid day meal scheme and reservation for weaker sections. (Source The Hindu dt.8.12.2006)

Ms.Jayalalithaa, (General Secretary of AIADMK) said this is a historic occasion, which transcends all political considerations; everyone from Tamil Nadu should have participated. MGR was an illustrious son of India. He did not belong just to the AIADMK or Tamil Nadu but the entire country. Hence the Government of India honoured him with the Bharat Ratna.

As a fan of MGR I thank "Amma" for her painstaking work in unveiling the Statue of her Mentor in Parliament.

Noon Meal Scheme

The literacy ratio when MGR came to Power increased dramatically, it is due to his various free schemes he announced out of that his Powerful weapon to eradicate he came out with Noon Meal Scheme, though it was already implemented in Late 1950s the scheme was dropped due to lack of economcial support.

MGR know that children will get atleast one time meal so that their parents would send them to school. It worked as desired. Even now the Noon Meal Scheme continues.

A detail insight is given by Mr.Krish, the link is
