India has lost a great leader. We miss this great personality. Nothing can fill this gap. May his good soul rest in peace.
No life without Sun
Today, there are no dearth of good engineering colleges. Even those from average colleges get some job or the other. Hundreds pack off to cities like Ahmedabad and Mumbai for work. The only reason there are so many IT companies now in Chennai, can be attributed to Dr Kalaignar's vision of bringing in the Tidel Park, the largest IT park in the whole of Asia.
Those who do not understand anything about T Nadu politics blame Dr Kalaignar. Thousands say that he hated the Brahmins. This was far from truth. He was a big friend to anyone and everyone. Even though I belong to this so called community, I will always praise him for all that he did.
Dr Kalaignar and his son were the Chief Architects of the lovely bridges that have made traffic of Chennai still better than metros like Bangalore. The traffic is so huge and the money flows in all directions. The service sector is so strong. Chennai is home to over 75 engineering colleges and the world-class Anna University campus as well.
There are so many good things done by Dr Kalaignar. Whatever modern Chennai is today, is all due to Dr Kalaignar's vision. It was he who made all the superb roads and developed both the ECR and OMR stretches.
These are the centers of all development today. Tamil Nadu has lost one of the most brilliant administrators, a fine human being and an excellent orator and a brilliant writer.
Yes, it is true that he was somewhat corrupt, but that pales into insignificance when compared to the one hundred thousand crore loot of the AiADMK. Dr Kalaignar at least made significant difference to Tamil Nadu in so many ways.
Hats off to him!!
The void is not very easy to get filled.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
