Stalin pens moving poem, asks can he address Karuna as father
Grieving the loss of his father, Stalin said he used to inform him wherever he goes. "why did you leave without informing this time."
"Just once shall I address you as Appa (father)?" asked DMK Working President M K Stalin in a moving poem in memory of his late father and party chief M Karunanidhi, as he noted that he used to call him as 'leader' more often.
"I have addressed you as Thalaivare Thalaivare (Leader) more than Appa Appa (Father). Therefore, just once, shall I address you as Appa, leader," Stalin said in the emotional poem written hours after the death of the DMK stalwart.
"Dear leader, who is intertwined with our thoughts and aspirations, where did you go leaving us behind," Stalin, the political heir apparent of Karunanidhi, said.
Seeking the "energy" of Karunanidhi, Stalin vowed to fulfill all his unfulfilled dreams.
Karunanidhi used to open his public speeches with the trademark line, evoking rapturous applause and cheering by the audience.
