    Kalaignar pens script on Hindu saint Ramanujar

    Kalaignar Karunanidhi, one of the architects of the Dravidian movement, is scripting a TV serial on Hindu saint Ramanujar. The serial, which is being produced by Kutty Padmini, will tell the life story of the Vaishnavite acharya and his contribution to Hindu religion.

    Padmini reveals she was surprised when Karunanidhi himself asked her if she could make a show on Ramanujar's life. She had told him it was her dream project but might clash with his ideals. "But he reassured us by saying that even rationalist-poet Bharathidasan has spoken highly of the saint. He also told us that he had written the foreword to a book on Ramanujar a few years ago," she reveals.

    it is understandable that MK can and will pen on ramanujar. it may be good to remember that R was a revolutionary, and that he has gone on to a hill and shouted the gayatri (?) which till then was a 'secret' of the smarthas (!).

    that he also converted NB to the B fold is another truth.

    so, in the context, of even today, R is a revolutionary. that today's vaishnavas (poonal or otherwise) would do no such thing, is simply another matter for discussion. this is what i think.

    Remember He played "Aariya Koothu" in his Parasakthi which was his launching pad to success! He knows this more than anybody - Nai Vitha kaasu Kolaikkathu! - Kaaseythan Kadvulada! and is not for love for revolutionary Kollgai!

    Dear sri, .
    You should have stopped with your 2nd sentence...'is another truth'. Your last sentence is unwarranted. If that is simply an another matter, you are free to start a thread on it. Dont drag vaishnavas(poonool or otherwise) in this matter.

    Perhaps mk has written the foreword for the verse book on ramanuja by vali. And influenced by it.
    Or kadaisi kalathile sankara sankara or narayana narayana.

    I think that is what prompted him to pen about Ramanuja.ஆனாலும் நாம் நல்லதையே நினைப்போம்

    His attempt should not turn out to be like "Pillaiar Pidika poi Korangu polana kathai" He has his way of doing that!

    Financial windfall for the documentary is assured as sun tv will pay a huge sum for world rights, and kalaignar tv will air it.

    Srirangam constituency is in JJ's pocket; MK perhaps hopes for sriperumpudur.

    Dear all, Times have changed Vaishnavism is so liberal like Maha Vishnu ? goddess Lakshmi always Forgive each & every one Devotee or otherwise. M.K. is a typical person. All his Ideas & preachings worked along with E.V. R.Who put Cheruppu Garland in Erode to Lord Rama, paved way for catching POWER. After that nothing of their so-called Suya Mariyadai worked @ more intellectual youngster's generation started ru;ing T.N & M.K "s own family have fought to themselves & he has experienced untold misery, when his son Alagiri visited him on some Morning & challenged his Father that Stalin will surely Die soon ?
    What else one need to vouch for his Mental Agony ?
    It was high time , He has changed now Meaning BETTER Than Never
    He is a proven Brahmin Hater even to day He is a Superstecious Guy None of his children are atheists , on contrary visit Temples get things done by Brahmins, & what not ? Let us resist from Glorifying him , because he is bound to show his colors any time. It will have no taker All would LAUGH at him including his own/ old living Colleagues.
