Whilst i enjoy the winters in Delhi, roaming through the streets, engulfed by history, i share with you something from Chennai’s history…. A man almost forgotten…

Kamarajar, the Chief Minister, the man who spread the value of
Education [inspite of being uneducated]. He introduced millions of people
to books, and also brought in the mid day meal system to motivate
children to go to school. He was also awarded the Bharat Ratna [India’s
highest civilian honour] posthumously in 1976…

Even today, we remember him, for all that he did for the people! The
Kamaraj Domestic Terminal in madras Airport is named after him, and so
are several other buildings and roads…

This statue stands tall in the Marina Beach, amongst several others, each of whom have left their mark behind!!
