Sri MGR Year 93, 10th October, Sunday
If MGRism is Religion then MGR is God. MGR Devotee Kantha Srinivasan was the first MGR Devotee to place MGR Image inside a Temple and made MGR a God.
First Temple for MGR to be erected by MGR Devotees was by Vijayakumar who constructed seven feet high shrine with Hindu temple style with a Idol of MGR showing Two Leaves, and two girls holding ADMK flag on both sides of the temple. The article was published in India Today (Tamil Edition on 6.4.1990).
And another MGR Devotee Nedumaran of Salem also Idolized MGR, the full post was published in our Blog on 14th December 2008.
MGR Devotees L.Kalaivanan and his wife K.Santhi have purchased a Land in Thirunindravur Village (near Avadi) and have raised a compound wall and erected the Magnificent Temple Gate and embedded with the reverend name of the Temple with Tamil word “Arulmigu MGR Aalayam”
They have invited all MGR Devotees and Fans for the Bhoomi Pooja on 28.10.2010 from 6.30 am to 7.30 am. MGR spirit will bless them.
So far 4 places of worship have been found out in this World for our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR. To my knowledge any World Leader or any Actor or any Philanthropist or any Celebrities or any Luminaries from any field have not been worshiped in two or three shrines, only our Beloved Leader MGR have this achievement. We as MGR Devotees and MGR Fans are proud to say this to the World.
