Michael MacMillan

Sri MGR Year 99, 10th August, Wednesday

The title of the post might confuse you. What is the connection of Michael with our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR? Michael MacMillan also known as Mike is a fictional character the protagonist of space opera trilogy "Twisted Spaces". The book is authored by K.N.Abel and edited by Rosi Milligan. 





In the story Michael MacMillan is one of the Special Ops and his team Twisted Spaces designs a Spaceship with light drive system within five years, their long term plan is to travel interstellar and make a colony in Mars. His vision of interstellar travel is based on the works of Burkhard Heims quantum field theory. 

The story is a heavy weight science fiction novel, now you might feel what is this supposed to do with our MGR? The characterization of Michael MacMillan closely resembles Manimaran character from Ayirathil Oruvan movie and some real traits of MGR.

Michael's vision is to unify the different races of the world and use his gravity based light drive system, his desire is that human kind should conquer space. The author has created Michael MacMillan character with world leadership qualities. The character shrewdness are perfect example of how MGR in real life used to tackle the dire situations thrown by his adversaries.

I like to point out one small dialogue of Michael, "survival of the many always supersedes survival of the one" did it ring a bell? the dialogue that MGR speaks in Ayirathil Oruvan when the pirate ship is being aimed by canons by Ramadoss and he gives an option to MGR to return to the island or else he will destroy the ship. Now comes that dialogue with a montage of a candle burning in foreground. 

In Twisted Spaces book one the ship has people from different countries one will become a traitor and Michael uses his leadership skill by pardoning him (which I do not have to mention that MGR in his life has not only pardoned but also helped them in benevolent ways) 

Puratchi Thalaivar after assuming office as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu included  abled and experienced persons in his administration. Michael also exhibits the same kind of attitude in giving commanding positions to experienced and abled astronauts in his ship.

While reading the book I felt that I am reading an English novel of MGR as the hero.  You also will get the same feeling, try this novel.

King Of Boxing

Sri MGR Year 99, 5th June, Sunday

Former heavyweight Boxing champion Muhammad Ali passed away on June 3rd, we srimgr.com team prays for his soul to rest in peace. 
 


Born as Cassius Clay on 17.1.1942 (both our beloved Leader and Muhammad Ali share same birthday date) in Louisville became an Olympic gold medalist then he entered professional boxing and became champion by beating Sonny Liston. He retired from active boxing in 1981. 


Muhammad Ali paid a visit to India in January 1980, and he stayed in Chennai and did an exhibition bout in old Nehru stadium arranged by Tamil Nadu Amateur Boxing Association and a private sponsor Apeejay group. He did a fight with former heavy weight champion Jimmy Ellis. The function was presided by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu MGR, who we knew is a sport enthusiast.

After the fight MGR tried to enter the ring, but his dhoti hindered his entry, without any hint what he is going to do, MGR jumped into the ring (who was 63 years old then) much amazement of Ali. MGR gave a shield to Muhammad Ali and took hold of Ali and Ellis hand at the same time for press.

'King Ali' walked on petals on his arrival at Meenambakkam, recall veterans

The 1980 historical event organised by the then Tamil Nadu Amateur Boxing Association and a private sponsor. Ali took on former heavy weight champion Jimmy Ellis in an exhibition bout. H.Mohana Krishnan, secretary of the association, took centrestage in organising the bout and his son M.Gunasekaran was melancholic, recalling the memorable day.

You are the boxing association's secretary right, come let us have a fight, were the first words uttered by Ali to my father, reminisced Gunasekaran.

After exchanging pleasantries the boxer, whose original name was Cassius Clay, was motored to the hotel in an open bus. I was 16 then. I remember running behind the bus and people had lined up on both sides of the roads to catch a glimpse of the King of Boxing, Gunasekaran added.

The decked up Nehru Stadium the venue, was struggling to hold the crowd that was pouring in from noon. My father and Ali had a shadow fight and then he was briefed about our then Chief Minister M.G.Ramachandran, an avid sports lover. Clippings and photos from MGR movies where he acted as a boxer, impressed Ali, who spent a considerable time in soaking in the local culture, Gunasekaran recalled...
