Pain for separated son, Kanimozhi writes poem behind bar

Kanimozhi with son Aditya
New Delhi/Chennai, Nov 11: The mother of 9-year-old, Kanimozhi could not bear the agony of being separated from her son, Aditya. The Rajya Sabha MP and DMK leader started writing poems describing the anguish at Tihar jail for over seven months.

43-year-old Kanimozhi was arrested over her alleged role in 2G spectrum scam and has been trying to secure bail. Karunanidhi's daughter was despised when critics claimed that she was playing "mother card" to get bail.

However, DMK sources informed that they will publish a book based on Kanimozhi's poems which she has been writing during her stay in Delhi jail. "The prison poems will be published once she comes out of jail," said DMK source.

The source added, "The poems cover a broad range of emotions, but they mainly deal with her pain at being separated from her son. She has also shared her reflections on life in prison."

Even jail officials described how Kanimozhi spends her time in jail talking about her son and crying for him. "She has told us this is the only time she has written poetry in adversity. She said she missed her son and cried a lot initially," cited an official.
