Karunanithi, a leader of South Indian Culture

  1. Story of M Karunanidhi, leader of Dravidian Movement Muthuvel Karunanidhi Muthuvel Karunanidhi (born as Daksinamoorthy on 3 June 1924) is an Indian politician and the 3rd Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. He is the President of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, a political party based in Tamil Nadu. He became Chief Minister for the first time in 1969. On 13 May 2006, he became the Chief Minister for the fifth time. He is also known for his writing works in the Tamil film industry. During the Thooku Medai play, M. R. Radha gave him the title of Kalaignar. Born in Thirukkuvalai village in Nagapattinam district, he was born as a son of Muthuvelu and Anju. His original name is Dakshinamurthy and he has Telugu ancestry. Karunanidhi was more interested in drama, poetry, and literature during his school season. Karunanidhi, who was inspired by the speaker Azhagirisamy, considered the pillar of the Justice Party, completely engaged in social movements at his 14th age. With the help of some of his students in the field of youth, the "youth revitalized the organization". The organization helped young people develop their inspiration and writing. After some time, the state was formed as a state- level "All Students Club." This was the first student division of the Dravidian movement. Karunanidhi also engaged the student community in social work with other members. DMK The party's official newspaper, Murasoli, started developing a newspaper for its members. The first major opposition
  2. to Karunanidhi's support for Tamil politics involved in the Kallukudi demonstration (1953). The original name of this industrial city is Kallagudi. Dalmiya, which set up a cement plant is from North India and changed the original name Kallakkudi to Dalmiyapuram. DMK opposed the name change as it was seen as North Indian oppression of Tamil Nadu. Karunanidhi and his comrades posted papers on the name "Dalmiyaapuram" in the railway station name board and block the passage of the trains. Two people died in the demonstration by the police action and Karunanidhi was arrested. Karunanidhi began his career as a screenwriter in the Tamil film industry. Through his wit and oratorical skills he rapidly rose as a popular politician. He was famous for writing historical and social (reformist) stories which propagated the socialist and rationalist ideals of the Dravidian movement to which he belonged. He first began using Tamil cinema to propagate his political ideas through the movie Parasakthi. Parasakthi was a turning point in Tamil cinema, as it espoused the ideologies of the Dravidian movement and also introduced two prominent actors of Tamil filmdom, Sivaji Ganesan and S. S. Rajendran. The movie was initially banned but was eventually released in 1952. It was a huge box office hit, but its release was marred with controversies. The movie was opposed by orthodox Hindus since it contained elements that criticized Brahmanism. Two other movies written by Karunanidhi that contained such messages were Panam and Thangarathnam. These movies contained themes such as widow remarriage, abolition of untouchability, self-respect marriages, abolition of zamindari and abolition of religious hypocrisy. As his movies and plays with
  3. strong social messages became popular, they suffered from increased censorship; two of his plays in the 1950s were banned. Karunanidhi rose to fame as a scriptwriter for the Modern Theatres Studio in Salem about 350 kilometers from Madras or present day Chennai. T R Sundaram, the owner of Modern Theatres Studio at Yercaud foot hills, was instrumental in honouring the talents of Karunanidhi, Jayalalithaa and M G Ramachandran.

He has written Kuraloviam for Thirukural, Tholkaappiya Poonga, Poombukar, as well as many poems, essays and books. Apart from literature, Karunanidhi has also contributed to the Tamil language through art and architecture. Like the Kuraloviyam, in which Kalaignar wrote about Thirukkural, through the construction of Valluvar Kottam he gave an architectural presence to Thiruvalluvar, in Chennai. At Kanyakumari, Karunanidhi constructed a 133-foot-high statue of Thiruvalluvar in honour of the scholar. The books written by Karunanidhi's include Sanga Thamizh, Thirukkural Urai, Ponnar Sankar, Romapuri Pandian, Thenpandi Singam, Vellikizhamai, Nenjukku Needhi, Iniyavai Irubathu and Kuraloviam.

  6. Chennai: July 27 2018. Ailing DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi was shifted to a Chennai hospital past midnight, hours after his son MK Stalin issued a statement that there is an improvement in his health and urged party workers not to believe rumours being spread by miscreants. His family said the 94-year-old veteran politician's condition suddenly declined later in the evening due to blood pressure issues. His entire family including sons MK Stalin and MK Alagiri, daughter M Kanimozhi and top DMK leaders rushed back to the house and decided to move him to the hospital. Former union minister A Raja later told reporters that Mr. Karunanidhi is "out of danger". A health bulletin by the hospital at 2.30 am said the former Tamil Nadu chief minister was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at 1.30 am after "following drop in blood pressure". "His blood pressure has stabilised with medical management and he continues to be monitored and treated by a panel of expert doctors," the hospital's executive director Dr. Aravindan Selvaraj said. In a statement earlier in the evening, Mr. Stalin had spoken about an improvement in his father's health and appealed to party workers not to come over to visit him. But his appeals could not convince scores of his supporters, who had gathered near the DMK leader's Gopalapuram house, to budge.
  7. Hundreds of Mr. Karunanidhi's supporters later reached Kauvery Hospital about 2 km away as word spread about his condition had spread and have been camping outside amid heavy deployment of police personnel. Mr. Karunanidhi, who is addressed as 'Kalaignar' (artiste) by his supporters, followers and some politicians, entered his 50th year as party chief yesterday. The DMK patriarch had returned home recently after a short stay at Kauvery hospital where he underwent a procedure to change his tracheostomy tube to help him breathe better. Doctors had said he is being provided hospital-level care at home. Mr. Karunanidhi, who has served as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister five times, has been recovering from a long illness for more than a year and is rarely seen in public. He has been tube-fed for some time. But he recently contracted a urinary tract infection, leading to a decline in his condition. On Friday, the family had said there were signs of improvement with the fever and infection subsiding. Since yesterday, a stream of politicians has been visiting the DMK chief to enquire about his health. On Thursday, President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi spoke to his son MK Stalin and daughter Kanimozhi, both DMK leaders, to ask about his health, and offered all help. Later in the evening, BJP leaders and superstar Rajinikanth also called on the family.
