Merry Go Round

Sri MGR Year 97, 30th September, Tuesday

Merry Go Round or Carousel is a amusement ride often witnessed in temple functions and exhibitions in India. The merry-go-round we see in our temple functions were very small in size and can only accommodate children. 

The merry-go-round have cars or rockets designed as seat for the children. In cases of cars we can see the name of famous heroes and heroines of the time. 

Long ago when I was a kid maybe in the year 1980 or 1981 I think, I enjoyed the merry-go-round, the mount is shaped as a car, in my car the name of the Hero and Heroine written was “Kamal - Sridevi”. And other three cars had “Sivaji - Vanishri”, “Rajni - Sripriya” and the last one was “MGR - Latha”.

Recently happened to see one merry-go-round, all the names in the car have changed but not our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR. The other pairs given are Vijay, Ajith and Dhanush. Below is the image I had captured showing the pair for the car is “MGR and Manjula”.


A carousel showing the name of the Hero MGR. His name lives in many formats. Another fact the short form of merry-go-round is MGR.
