Sri MGR Year 102nd, 20th September, Friday
I have already visited MGR's bodyguard Mr.K.P.Ramakrishnan house some 4 years back and I have given a detailed post about the visit, covering many aspects and unknown facts about our beloved Puratchi Thalaivar MGR.

This time on 7th September I made a visit and met K.P.Ramakrishnan now in his early 90s looks active and eager to share the anecdotes from MGR life. In this post, I am not going to delve into what K.P.Ramakrishnan had told me but I want to share my cherished moment, of receiving a signed copy of his new book "Endrum Vazhum MGR" from his own hands, a significant moment in my life.
