Total Recall


It’s the 114th birth anniversar­y of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader C.N. Annadurai, the first CM of Tamil Nadu, and rival All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) has announced a weeklong celebratio­n. The AIADMK was named after the Dravidian movement icon by party founder, the late M.G. Ramachandr­an, when he broke away in 1972. The ‘Anna’ initiative is current party chief E.K. Palaniswam­i’s bid to infuse some Dravidian pride among the cadre. Atheist Annadurai, though, would have loathed the fact that EPS made the gesture right after visiting Tirumala temple on September 9.
