A peep into DMK and its history

This is a very comprehensive review of the state of DMK and its history. Particularly because this author has managed to focus on the behind-the-scenes power of Rajatthi Ammal.

A long read. But worth it. Very impressive article.

Don't you think my mail to you about 2G was much more concise and incisive?

Btw, Rogini left out the "Sindhu Samaveli" type thing going on between Mu Ka and Azhagiri's family...

My god...I knew quite a bit abt the family, their politics and the recent inroads they have made in TN (in the last 5 yrs or so).

But this is by far, arguably the best article I've ever read about TN's politico machine.

So informative, weaving with juicy scoops all over the place, this "Rogini" chick should write a screenplay but then have to go back to the "family" to produce that movie :).

Great find Hawkaii....I could relate n connect the dots on the Nadar connection from our recent conv :) !! Thx for sharing...

Good find. Any truth to the rape claim? Rumours abound that it was a newsreader.

Well people say it was Fathima the newsreader on DD. Hearsays (how good is that??) that Stalin was chasing her, movie style with people watching at night. Apparently she immediately had a hush hush marriage with a Hindu dude and hence the big pottu these days.
