Sri MGR Year 100, 2nd April, Sunday
Not only MGR fans, most of the world knows that MGR is the first person who always comes forward to provide a helping hand whenever the situation arises. We know many instances to quote. Most of his help are gone unnoticed. One such incident came to our notice couple of weeks back.

Recently Daily Thanthi paper published one article, that a school building was demolished in Uthukottai and the old students of the school shed tears. Article further states that the people visited MGR in 1954 for donation to construct new classrooms. MGR assured that he will conduct drama in Uthukottai and the collection can be used to construct new classrooms.
"What people hoped is a small donation but instead MGR has given more than what they expected".
As promised MGR came to Uthukottai in 1955 and staged two dramas and generously gifted his collection. By 1956, 6 new classrooms were constructed and they named it after MGR.
Now the building which is more than 60 years old and in dilapidated condition, the concerned authority demolished it and the old students remembered their memories with tinge of sadness to the Newspaper.
