Dear editor:

I need some space in your esteemed periodical to clarify certain facts:

I saw in the latest Thinnai my article on my return to Thinnai as a contributor that contained my Bangalore expeditions.

The title I gave to Bhasin ‘s website was Karnataka Kalling only. I gave that title to draw the attention of browsers. S M Krishna noticed it and appreciated, I found ‘Kalling ‘ corected as ‘Calling ‘ thinking it was a spelling mistake. No, it was NOT. KK was the correct title and we made a logo also for KK.

Likewise, the title I had given to the Almatti row was ‘CM Krishna ‘s Tryst with River Krishna. ‘ CM indicates Chief Minkster. I saw that was also missing. S M (his initials) Krishna liked the title most because of the adjectives given for both Krishnas. NOT only him, who ever read it. With out that CM adjective for Krishna, the title has lost its charm!

Some reader has again raised the issue of authenticity for my documentation. In that case, I may NOT be able to write the past because it is NOT possible to record anything that relates to people who are no more. However, proofs prop up even without my asking in some cases – that is ‘Irai Arul! ‘

For instance, as for Hey Ram issue, it was authenticated by Kalyanam himself revealing it again and it has appeared in TOI and Asian Age recently. I forwarded the news item to Go. Rajaram. kalyanam revealed to me the Hey Ram falsehood about thirty years ago in a very casual chat, wihtout any intention or motive.

Prof.A. K Perumal has recorded in Feb Kalachuvadu my stay at Su.Ra. ‘s and I did NOT even know that though I have been receiving KC . My copy of Kalchuvadu was taken away by Ila. Ganesan (All India Vice President, BJP) in one of his visits to my residence and that I had no occasion to read the Feb. issue completely except for one or two.

There was no intention on my side to record my past and therefore I am NOT NOT obliged to prove my encounters in the past. If anyone has any doubt, it is for her/him to go in search of it. They can cross check with people living in case of people who are no more. As for me, I cannot run around to get proofs! It is for the readers either to take my accounts or throw them BUT, without calling me names as bluffer, liar, etc.!

As for my interaction with Anna and many other DMK leaders, K A krishnasamy, brother of K A Mathialagan who was with MGR and a former minister might be willing to tell many facts about me, as

he has high regards for me. He might give many new info that I don ‘t record because it would amount ot self promotion or beating my drum.

Chinna kuttoosi may also oblige.

As for my nearness to Sri kamaraj, there are people like Kumari Anadnan, Pa. chidamparam, Sudarsanam (WHIP of the Congress in the outgoing Tamil Nadu Assembly), K V Thanga Balu, MP and many more second rung Congressmen. I hope my interaction with Hindutva leaders right from Vajpayeeji to front runners in RSS, VHP and Hindu Munnani would NOT be doubted! All of them will also tell that I had never asked any favour for my personal gains exept for some genuine transfers for some deserving cases despite many industrialists and businessmen approached me for some kind of recommendations indicating that I would get hefty percentage as a tribute to my liaison! I thank God for giving me a strong will that could prevent me from yielding to such temptations. YES, I had used my access to people in high offices for a genuine common cause many a time! I had also used my influence to get finacial assistance, admissions in educatonal institutions for many deserving fisherfolks and Dalits but unfortunately not even for a single Brahmin boy or girl!

There was also a mentioning that one of my friends had reproduced my article on Goidse in his blog. Execpt for one or two like Ve. saa. and S Vaidheeswaran, almost all readers were totally strangers to me initially, who had even started addressing me later as uncle, dad and god father as well as Guru and I thank Thinnai for enabling me to gain hundreds of children in a very short span of time especially at my ripe age and now I have many shelters to pass my old age comfortably as I become totally immobile! At this rate, there will be a big fight among my children as to who would take care of me when I become a burden! There are already many Dalit girls fighting with each other, telling ‘appaa enkoodattaan irukkanum(daddy should be with me only)! ‘

Sincerely,

Malarmannan
