MGR’s New Avatar

Sri MGR Year 101, 17th January, Wednesday

Today is the 101st birthday of  God of the Poor, Puratchi Thalaivar, Philanthropist and our beloved MGR. As usual all the TV Channels and some of the theatres are showing MGR movies. Let me come to the topic of this post, MGR’s new Avatar:


Most MGR fans know that in 1999 the Hindu gave an article of Pentafour a software company planned to develop a Computer generated MGR and Raj Kapoor lead movie. They went into an extent of MGR’s dental characteristics. But the project was shelved and there is no news about the movie.


Ten years later a promising animated clip of MGR was published in a website, a trailer of new MGR animated movie “Puratchi Thalaivan”.

The website carried the caption “MGR’s first 3D animated Film” The video clip started with the title given to other actors such as Super Star, Supreme Star, Mega Star, Ultimate Star, Little Super Star, Winning Star, Victory Star – The Star of all Stars our MGR. The clipping continued, a red screen on it Tamil words வாழ்ந்தவர் கோடி மறைந்தவர் கோடி மக்கள் மனதில் நிற்பவர் யார்? the screen opens up and MGR emerges, does some Nadodi Mannan style, followed by ship is sailing and MGR shooting an arrow. That ended the clip sadly the animated movie too.

Even Poet Kannadasan who was in the opposite group had praised MGR’s determination and his tireless  hard work in Dindukal election. The result we all know that ADMK secured more than 55% of votes.

Below is the unforgettable event as narrated by S.S.Ramakrishnan in Facebook.

1973 திண்டுக்கல் இடைதேர்தல் நேரம். பிரசார செய்தி, படம் எடுக்க, மாலையில் மதுரையிலிருந்து MGR அவர்களுடன் பத்திரிகையாளர்களாகிய, நாங்கள் அவருடன் கிளம்பினால் திரும்புவதற்கு அநேகமாக, விடிந்து விடும்.

ஒரு கிராமத்தில், நாங்கள் செல்லும்போது, அதிகாலை 3 மணி. அந்த நேரத்திலும் மக்கள் எம்.ஜி.ஆர்.அவர்களை எதிர்பார்த்து, மாலை 5 மணியிலிருந்து நடு நிசி வரை ,அமர்ந்திருந்தார்கள். இதை கேள்விப்பட்ட எம்.ஜி.ஆர். அவர்களை ஏமாற்ற விரும்பாமல், அந்த நேரத்திலும் கொஞ்சமும் சோர்வை காண்பிக்காமல் பேசிவிட்டு கிளம்பினார். கூட சென்ற நமக்கோ நிக்க முடியாத அளவு சோர்வு. இருந்தாலும், நானும், தூக்க கலக்கதினிடையே, படம் எடுத்து , என் கடமையை செய்தேன்.
இதெல்லாம், எம்.ஜி.ஆர். அவர்களுடன், கூடவே பயணம் செய்த, என்னால் மறக்க முடியாத நிழ்ச்சிகள்.

MGR’s Flagship Schemes

Sri MGR Year 100, 3rd January Wednesday

Former Chief Minister M.G. Ramachandran epitomized the qualities of an ideal ruler and future generations will be inspired by his personality as he strode the political stage of Tamil Nadu like a colossus, observed Governor Banwarilal Purohit here on Tuesday.


Article is from “The Hindu” daily and the picture was forwarded by MGR Devotee Vinod from Bangalore

Speaking at the unveiling of a bronze bust of MGR at the Tamil University, Mr. Purohit remarked that MGR was one person whose actions spoke for his thoughts and intentions. It was because of his noble actions that he had found a permanent place in the hearts of the poor and the downtrodden, he said.

Stating that MGR had initiated and implemented several novel programmes during his tenure as Chief Minister, the Governor pointed out that the nutritious meal scheme was one such that showed the way for the whole of India. The nutritious meal scheme reduced school dropout rate significantly besides helping overcome caste discriminations. It also helped those in the lowest strata of the society to get employment in the noon meal centres as cooks, ayahs and assistants.

MGR’s generosity was best highlighted in the contributions he made first in establishing the Tamil University here, setting apart 1,000 acres for the campus and sanctioning generous amount of funds for the construction of buildings especially the library.

The late Chief Minister was genuinely interested in the welfare and uplift of farmers, women and the downtrodden, the Governor recalled. His schemes for the welfare of the farmers ensured maximum growth for Tamil Nadu in the farm sector, he added.


Mr.Purohit also released a book containing 56 articles written by the Tamil University faculty members on MGR’s love towards Tamil and his contributions to the development of the language and the society. The bust and the book have been readied by the varsity as part of MGR’s birth centenary celebrations.
