Media, made a significant contribution ,in publishing the news about Karanunidhi’s family ensemble.
They carried a group photo of estranged Marans looking cheerful, with brothers,Alagiri- Madurai chieftain appering joyful , Stalin – the sitting Minister heaving a sigh of relief with father Karunanidhi beaming,and with mother Dhayalu smiling.It was virtually a perfect disposition of rejoice.
A beautiful photography, giving expression to all positive sentiments as proposed by the top family of Tamilnadu.
But the picture , lacked the most required gesture, that of remorse.
Three innocent lives of promising youngsters, was plucked by the demonstrators devilish behaviour at Dinakaran Office in Madurai, last June.
The parental grief, the anguish of the family, the truama of the brutal beating the three young men encountered, while laying down their lives, will never be reported by the media.
The intensity will not be transcribed, will not be recorded, will not be brought to light , as they belong to ordinary folks, who supported their parents and who earned their livelihood by slogging in such demeaning offices.
Remember ,as splendour brings in harmony, grief too heralds unity.
The story of “The Three Bears” . crossed my mind as,. I noticed.the picture of these celebrities.Father bear, Mother Bear and the Baby bear, had a life of their own , away from the multitude, in a make believe world of fantasy.
This unusual reference, is brought in , as a humorous interlude to heighten the emotional impact by means of contrast.
Buddham saranam kachami , unwantedly keeps on ringing in my ears, nagging my mind, setting it to a discordant upbeat.
