PERIYAR SOCRATES IS NO MORE!

GREAT LOSS TO THE DRAVIDIAN JOURNALISTIC FRATERNITY!

With a very heavy heart we record the sad demise, of one of the pillars of Periyar  Movement, in a tragic road accident, on 12th May 2014 in Chennai. His untimely death has dealt a severe set back to the Dravidian journalism. 44 is not an age to be associated with death of a very brisk, enthusiastic and genuine journalist in the true path of Periyar.

His ever smiling face and a gentlemanly   demeanour  have earned for him a very huge following and a host of journalistic family both from the movement  and outside it. A big crowd came in procession to pay last tribute to his body kept at the Periyar Thidal, Chennai  which is an ample evidence to his popularity and greatness of this  ardent follower of Periyar.

The loss is all the more damaging and  irreparable to the Periyar Movement as   Periyar Socrates has been associating with  the  Movement  for many  years in promoting the principles of Rationalism and Self Respect of Periyar through the journalistic  mission, very effectively. His dynamic performance will be forever missed by all of us .

Words cannot comfort his dear ones but time alone can heal the wound. We express our   heartfelt  condolences to the bereaved  family members and the cadres of the Movement.

K.Veeramani
President, Dravidar Kazhagam
