Kalaignar Karunanidhi – The unfading voice of an immortal soul
“On the day when death will knock at thy door what wilt thou offer to him?
Oh, I will set before my guest the full vessel of my life—I will never let him go with empty hands”
An excerpt from the poem of Rabindranath Tagore comes very much in life with our immortal Kalaignar Karunanidhi. For generations, he has been someone who was the first one you would have known even before analyzing what is politics. His voice would have been the most memorable one to everyone even before they could come out of their infancy and start speaking Tamil. His insatiable passion from the age of 14 to escalate the prominence of Tamil on the global panorama will be an unforgettably memory for every Tamil for the forthcoming generations and ages.
No words! With tears and pain, there is a smile too when we look back into the relentless journey of Kalaignar Karunanidhi and his inevitable dedicate to Tamil arts, culture, literate and architecture.
