Flag Hoisting Ceremony

Sri MGR Year 100, 15th August, Tuesday

Today is the 70th Independence day of our country. And we wish to convey our wishes to all our blog readers and MGR fans around the world. 


Couple of months back I traveled to Kerala and met my father's friend who had settled after his retirement from government service. I had already posted some pictures given by him in our MGR blog. For this special occasion I had planned to publish all the photos of our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR hoisting the tri colour in Fort St.George from 1977 to 1987. 

While I was scanning the newspaper cuttings in one computer centre the person who did the work asked me in Malayalam "E- alau marichu poi ethoraiyo kollam ayi, pinney endina ithu" (this person has died so long ago what you are going to do with this) I replied in English "for you he is a dead person but for us (Tamils) he is still living in our hearts". 


Philosophical song from Ananda Jothi

MGR's first Term in Office from 1977 to 1980:







Kottaiyele Namathu Kodi Paranthida Vendum (our flag must fly in the fort) - song from Maduraiyai Meeta Sundarapandian

MGR's Second term in Office 1980 to 1984:





After his illness and recuperation, MGR returned to India and took office from 1985 to 1987.

MGR's third term in Office from 1985 to 1987:

In 1985, instead of the Chief Minister, the Finance Minister V.R.Nedunchezhiyan hoisted the flag, and in 1986 MGR hoisted the flag for the last time. And in the year 1987 our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR left for medical check up in August 8th 1987 to New York, US.

Netru Indru Nalai

Sri MGR Year 100, 7th August, Monday

Amalraj Pictures hit movie of 1974 Netru Indru Nalai is re-released this week in Mahalakshmi theatre. I took couple of pictures outside the hall. I like to share one which is posted below.


Apart from our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR's double action roles the movie has many political dialogues and mesmerizing songs. In one song "Thambi Naan" MGR's political party's first electoral victory was recorded. Posted below is the MGR's philosophical song hinting on DMK's political atrocities of 70s.


"மக்கள் நலம் மக்கள் நலம் என்றே சொல்லுவார்
தம் மக்கள் நலம் ஒன்றேதான் மனதில் கொள்ளுவார்


வீடுகெல்லாம் வெளிச்சம் போட கொடுத்த பணத்திலே
தாங்கள் வெளிச்சம் போட்டு வாழ்ந்து விட்டார் நகர சபையிலே

ஏழைக்கெல்லாம் வீடு என்று திட்டம் தீட்டினார்
தாங்கள் வாழ்வதற்கு ஊர் பணத்தில் வீடு கட்டினார்"
