Sri MGR Year 96, 24th December, Tuesday
Today is the 26th death anniversary of our beloved Leader, Puratchi Thalaivar, Ponmanachemmal MGR, 26 years before when the tragic news that our King of Kings, God of the Poor has finally breathed his last was announced in radio and TV, widespread panic gripped his fans and devotees. They were left in the lurch the days that followed somehow brought back them to reality that still their God is alive with them in the form of movies, images and speech. To this day many of his followers make up their mind that MGR is not dead.
Today thousands of people came to pay their tributes in the final resting place of our Thalaivar. People from neighbouring states and as well from Singapore, Malaysia and United States also visited the memorial of MGR.
Silent procession took place at 3.30 pm on behalf of Ponmanachemmal Sri MGR Welfare Association presided by MGCB Pradeep. They performed their pooja and also took oath, video provided above.
