    What a devotion to Tamil language and Tamil people.

    Dear Roop, you are keeping us glued to MGR thoughts continuously. Thanks to you and all your collegues.

  11. Great interview with a cristal clear recording that could be heard after 35 years. Thalaivar was talking so clearly without any slips; why not? Of course, he talks truth from his heart; so he didn’t require notes and special Tamizh modulations (like the liar MuKa). I am eagerly waiting to hear the second part.

    • I came to know that BBC is the copyright owner. I am waiting for their approval to publish the second part.

      • Ok at least you can put it as private in YouTube and invite people who are desperate to listen to it. Also given that Part 1 is already in YouTube and this thing is more than 25 years old, it should be ok to publish Part 2. Also if they object you might have to take it down.

      • Sir, please send one email to
