FEBRUARY 1 MONDAY BROADCAST ON GNANAMAYAM CHANNEL

TODAY’S HIGHLIGHT WAS A TALK ON THE GREAT TAMIL SCHOLAR KI. VA. JAGANNATHAN BY HIS DAUGHTER MRS UMA BALASUBRAHMANYAM OF CHENNAI.

LONDON SWAMINATHAN, PRODUCER,  INTRODUCED HER. SHE IS A GREAT TEACHER SPREADING TIRUPPUGAZ THROUGH HER STUDENTS.

IN HER TALK, SHE COVERED VARIOUS ASPECTS OF HIS FATHER’S LIFE FROM HIS EALRLY CHILDHOOD.

IMPORTANT POINTS TOUCHED BY HER ARE AS FOLLOWS…..

1.KI.VA.JA.WAS SIRITUALLY BENT IN HIS CHILDHOOD. HE WENT TO SENTHAMANGALAM SWAMIKAL AND ASKED FOR SANYAS. SWAMIJI KNOWING HIS FAMILY COMMITMENTS, ASED HIM TOGET HIS PARENT’S PERMISSION TO BECOME A SANYASI.

2.KI.VA.JA.WHO WAS A STUDENT OF GREAT SCHOLAR U.VE.SWAMINATHA IYER USED TO SERVE HIM IN VARIOUS WAYS IN THE STYLE OF GURU-SISHYA.

3.KI.VA.JA WHO WROTE OVER 200 BOOKS CONSIDRED HIS GURU U.VE.SA AND LORD MURUGA AS HIS TWO EYES. ALWAYS THANKED THEM IN ALL HIS LECTURES.

4. THE GREAT TAMIL SCHOLAR DID 24 LAKH GAYATRI MANTRA RECITATION.

5. HIS DEDICATION TO TAMIL WAS VERY DEEP AND HE DID KANDAR ALANKARA TALKS EVERYDAY FOR THREE YEARS.

6.HIS SPEECHES WERE FULL OF HUMOROUS REAMRAKS AND PUN ON WORDS. ONCE HE SAW AN ANT IN THE MILK CUP AND COMMENTED  ‘SRINI’ ‘VASAN’ (VISHNU) IS LYING IN THE OCEAN OF MILK.

SRINI IS A PUN FOR TAMIL WORD SEENI/SUGAR, VASAN IS A PUN WITH TWO MEANINGS ONE WHO RESIDES AND ONE WHO EATS SUGAR AND LIVES (VASI= LIVE).

SRINIVASAN/ANT WAS IN THE MILK CUP.

ON ANOTHER OCCASION THE SPEAKER WHO INTRODUCED HIM SAID HERE IS AN ‘UNCROWNED’ KING OF TAMIL. IMMEDIATELY HE SHOWED HIS TUFT AND SHOWED HE WAS A CROWNED KING.

‘MUDI’ IN TAMIL MEANS ‘CROWN’ AND ‘HAIR’.

HE WAS A SPEAKER, WRITER AND EDITOR OF (KALAIMAGAL) MAGAZINE.

7. HE LED A VERY SIMPLE LIFE AND WHEN HE WAS  ABOUT TO LEAVE FOR PARIS TO ATTEND THE WORLD TAMIL CONFERECNCE, HE COULDN’T EVEN KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GLOVES AND SOCKS, WHICH HE NEVER WORE OR SEEN UNTIL THAT DAY.

MRS BALA SUBRAHMANYAM GAVE LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT KI.VA.JA.’S TALKS  AND POEMS COVERING DIVINE SUBJECTS AND TAMIL LITEARTURE.

8. HE STARTED WRITING POEMS FROM THE AGE OF 12. HE WAS A BORN POET.
