I haven't seen the SLP filed by the TN govt. But now that I have gone through the order by Justice GR Swaminathan, I am sharing some thoughts here about the order itself - well, because it's a free country. #thanjavur #ariyalur #student #suicide.

No one doubts that conversion takes place in TN. It is not illegal. In fact it is a fundamental right to propagate one's religion as per Constitution. It is only forced conversion which is illegal. (2/n)
Justice GRS seems to ignore these when he quotes the Bible, movies and even refers to a magazine article to say conversion takes place. Yes, we know. But what if, as you did, petitioners refer to movies to bolster their arguments since they contain 'kernels of truth'? (3/n)

#Thanjavur Death case -

There has been a third video that is being circulated. How is that happening ? There is not allegation of religious conversion, girl did not talk about religious conversion : Petitioner counsel
This is creating suspicions on the investigation and investigating agency. We have lost faith in the investigation. Thru have done injustice to the little girl : Petitioner counsel

In her own voice, 2 yrs back she had stated that there was an attempt to convert. All these allegations have tk be investigated. What was the reason for suicide : Petitioner Counsel

On the banks of Vennar River, in the districts of Thanjavur, lies a small village called Kallaperumbur, home to two temples of antiquity - Brihannayaki Sametha Kailasanathar (A Shiva Temple) and the Varadaraja Perumal (A Vishnu Temple). (1/6)
With the inscriptions found in the dilapidated gopuram of the Shiva Temple (Image 2), we can trace back this temple to the period of Kulottunga Chola of the 12th /13th century. (2/6)
The Temple is a vast complex with sanctums for the Parivara Daivatas including Nruthi, Vinayagar, Subhramnaya and a separate sanctum outside the main complex for the Goddess. A small niche on the outer walls of the Maha Mandapa has a sculpture of Natraja and Parvati. (3/6)

1. Started the winter trip yesterday with Darshan of Devi Muthumariyamman, Lord Ayyanar, Nondi Veeran Swamy at Sitthanallur, followed by Thyagaraja Swamy at Thiruvarur. Today had Darshan of Lord Rajagopala Swamy at Mannargudi.
2. This is perhaps the best time of the year to visit Tamil Nadu. Strongly recommend it. It's green, pleasant and salubrious. #TamizhNaad
3. I see so many Ayyappa Bhaktas in the heart of Tamil Nadu. The right kind of Black to counter the Black of Dravida Kazhagam.
