Chidambaram's property was not created by selling pakoras and tea before entering politics. For information, his father Palaniappa Chettiar was a Lt. Colonel, grandfather businessman. This family had cloth mills and tea gardens even before independence.
Annamalai Chettiar, Chidambaram's maternal grandfather, was a banker who held the title of KING. He founded the United India Insurance Company and Annamalai University. Nana's brother Ramaswamy Chettiar is the founder of Indian Bank and Indian Overseas Bank.
These banks were their family property before nationalization. His two brothers are leading industrialists. Chidambaram's wife Nalini Chidambaram is the daughter of PS Kalyasam who was a Supreme Court judge. Her mother-in-law Saundra is a writer and a famous Tamil poetess.
Chindambaram and his son Karti are lawyers by profession. Chidambaram has an MBA from Harvard, while Karthi is a BBA student from Austin, Texas, and LLM from Cambridge. Karthi's wife Srinidhi is a famous artist of Bharatanatyam.
The family's property worth 54 crores abroad, or a house in Zorbagh or ten or twenty thousand crores of assets is not amazing , was there for ages. So dear Nationalists, focus on five rupees Parle Ji. Which has laid of 10,000 workers.
It would be helpful that in time of recession and unemployment, focus on revival of economy. Rather than shouting Vande Mataram...

"Pinarayi Vijayan, when asked about the Ram Temple shilanyas and Priyanka Gandhi’s stand, had this to say, "“I am not surprised by Priyanka Gandhi’s stand in this matter. The Congress party’s stand during Rajiv Gandhi and then Narasimha Rao’s regime are all part of history.
If Congress had a definite stand on secularism, the country would not have been facing such a situation today,”.

I am glad he is not surprised. Politicians should not be surprised at tactics and conveniences of other political leaders.
We, as voters on the other hand, have a right to b surprised, dismayed, angry or disappointed.

But then he says something I find funny-His reference to History and that if Congress had a definite stand on secularism, the country would not have been facing such a situation today.

For the last few days I have been bursting RSS fake propaganda on Twitter and FB both. Now I am more and more convinced why people deserve RSS in power.

Who are these people spreading RSS fake narrative? 1/13
They are AAP supporters, AIMIM supporters, some "liberals" and a group of Muslims. (Read clearly, A GROUP of Muslims).

I can imagine what this must be doing to the Muslims who support Congress, those Muslims must be going through too much pain right now. So here it is. 2/13
AAP spreading RSS narrative against Congress is understandable, because they are RSS. Why a bunch of "liberals" doing that? +AIMIM supporters n a group of Muslims? Why?

First of all, you don't care about evidence. That itself is help to RSS. Your ignorance is bliss for RSS. 3/13

This is height of moral bankruptcy when a country bites the hand that feeds them and worships the oppressor, demands the opposition to be perfect and protects a inept govt which has failed in every front. This is much more than politics. 1/3
We are not here because we made a bad political choice but we are here because we crossed every limit in moral bankruptcy. The bad political choice is the outcome of that. It's not eyes that are blind, but the hearts. 2/3
We must try to change hearts and that's the ultimate solution. Or else it will become our vicious circle and the oppressor will keep coming back stronger and stronger. 3/3

“How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause. Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us, thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?1/6
The real damage is done by those millions who want to 'survive'. The ones who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. 2/6
Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. 3/6

My neighbour broke into my house last night n smashed my 56" television set. He now refuses to leave n claims he owns this part of the house.

My eyes turned RED hot with rage! I retaliated by removing him from our building WhatsApp group n also blocked him on FB n Twitter. (1/5)
My pet dog Arban 🐕‍🦺 was very impressed by the sheer SUDDENNESS & UNEXPECTED nature of my move. He wagged his tail in approval & called it a befitting reply! 💪


No, he called the cops instead. (2/5)
But I told the cops in a very clear & firm voice that, "No one has intruded my house nor has any one captured my living room."

Puzzled by my statement, they asked,"what's the fuss all about then? Why have I banned my neighbour from the WhatsApp group? Who smashed my 56" TV?(3/5)
