Hardly within a day I posted an article praising Rajinikanth for his “super” performance in making a veiled expression of the state of affairs surrounding those in power, here comes a complete reversal of his stance. He met Mr Karunannidhi for ‘thanking’ him for attending his daughter’s betrothal the previous day.
This excuse is another big ‘kaathula poo’ – but can be rated only below the one gifted by Mr Karunanidhi.
What makes me wonder is what has happened ‘so obviously’ within a few days.
Our guesses are easy to make – but coming as it does from a Rajini whom we think has no great material attachments, this causes some worry. If Rajini himself can be intimidated, what lies in store for the people of this State? Only sub standard rice, free colour TVs and a few hundred rupee notess every 5 years?
Somehow I still have faith in the integrity and Dharmic Thought of this man (Rajini) and wish to think that he had gone to make things better for Ajith, and not for making things better for himself.
If not now, he has to rise to the occasion when the time comes.
There is only one person in the whole of
That is Rahul Gandhi.
It depends on successful he is in overruling his mother.
If he succeeds or not is a different thing.
But it rests with Rajinikanth to speak out his mind openly like he did on an earlier occasion. That is the way he can pay his gratitude to the millions of his fans whom he never fails to acknowledge for making him what he is now.
As a Rajini fan, I also have the right to ask him what he is going to do for the state.
Whatever he does or speaks – has an impact on Mr Karunanidhi as we can see him react in the current incident too.
The ‘surrender – like’ visit by Rajinikanth has all trappings of a forced surrender.
This shows that Mr Karunaidhi is vulnerable – he reacts to every move of Rajini.
Rajini must know this as his strength and use it for the sake of the people when time comes. A time will come and we wait for that time to see a sustained Super performance by this man

Rajini, Ajith call on CM, harp on `politicising' stars
Tamil superstar Rajinikanth who called on chief minister M. Karunanidhi on Thursday asserted that actors and actresses have not been compelled to participate in political agitations but they had taken part in such programmes on their own accord.
"The actors and actresses participated in fast or agitations on their own and none was forced to take part in political agitations or functions," he said, adding that the chief minister had faced several agitations in his political life and there was no need for him to compel anyone. This was the super- star's reaction to an issue raised by his colleague Ajith. During a function organised by the Tamil film industry to felicitate Mr Karunanidhi for allotting land for artistes to establish township, Ajit had lamented that actors were forced to participate in agitations of little relevance to film industry.
"It is his personal view and I appreciate him for expressing it," Rajini further said. He described his meeting with Mr Karunanidhi as a `courtesy call' and told reporters that he met the chief minister to thank him for attending his daughter Soundarya's betrothal on Wednesday. The actor's meeting with the chief minister gained significance following a controversy that was triggered over his meeting with Opposition leader J. Jayalalithaa, whom he invited for his daughter's engagement.
Close on the heels of Rajini's meeting Mr Karunanidhi, Ajith who raised the controversy called on the CM on Thursday evening.
He also termed it a courtesy call.
