That is a valid point. One only has to see how people fall head over heels with so-called biographical movies of famous people in India. Case in point being Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.This is one issue which i also have with the book. But maybe that is how the books get sold in India.
We have a penchant for a bit of a drama here and there (atleast there were no 3X zooms thrown in..)
Thanks for sharing a slice of anecdotes from your life. A self made man is always the best possible hero we can come across in life
Also, thanks for the appreciation but I edited that part out. The intention was to talk about Mudaliar's standing among Tamils from the lower stratas of life and I think I digressed a bit. All good now.
