Under the sun

Monday, October 17, 2005


The concert was going on and the singers where singing, the musicians were playing and the audience was listening. A sudden commotion and a sudden roar from a section of the audience in the galleries towards my left. I stood up and what i saw next left me in an inexplicable state. I saw my guru and Aandavan for the first time in my life. If he is 50+ years old, you won't believe it when you see him. The enclosure where i was sitting was full of the Lords-pavilion types. VIPs and VVIPs, you know. You had to bribe them to clap generously (there were exceptions).
They reacted with shock and disbelief when a man stood up, arms raised, and hollered like his life depended on it "Alwarpettai Aandava!" as soon as Kamal Haasan entered. [That man was me]
From the 5 snaps i took of thalaivar, the one posted above was the least blurred [for obvious reasons :) ]
Too bad i was a few rows behind him. Anyway, there's always Novemner 7th.
When he got on stage, i'd whistled like crazy and shouted "Paattu Paadu Paramakudi PopeAndava!". Unfortunately, it didn't happenen and in fact it was IR who sang an impromptu one about thalaivar "Kudikare! Paramakudikare! KudikkAre!".

Moral of the story:
When Paramakudi Parandhaman meets Pannayapurathu Pavalar, sparks fly!


  • Thousands stars for earth
    But one sun for earth
    That sun is Kamal Haasan

  • Raja Kya vecha Adu wrong'a ponathu illa.

    Illayaraja is illamai in his music. Kamal is illamai in all.

    Inimai ido ido, illamai ido ido.

  • I love Kamal for two reasons

    1. He is true Kalaingan
    2. His purity in Thamizh.

    My god; he never uses a single English word while speaking in Thamizh. Even if he says one word in English, he immediately explain its meaning also.

    In his movie, Thennaali, he openly critisized Thamizhians in Tamil Nadu for speaking Thanglish just for style.

  • soonpaans,
    while i have sufficiently seen different aspects of fandom in sport, cinema, politics, literature, etc. your reaction on meeting your idol epitomises the heart and soul of passion. Superabbu!
