This generation of viewers may not be aware
of the towering personality of Kamaraj and his
selfless contribution to the welfare of Tamilnadu.
His astuteness made him the confidante of great
national leaders like Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru
who consulted him for several issues. He also
skillfully guided the political set up after
the death of Nehru. Hence, he was popularly
called the Kingmaker. His rule as CM of Tamilnadu
could be truly called the golden era as the
state galloped ahead in all spheres. For all
his political power, he remained extremely austere
and his simplicity and commitment to Gandhian
values was legendary.
