Can I call you ‘appa’ at least once now: Stalin’s emotional letter for Karunanidhi


Chennai, Aug 8: Can I address you as Appa once at least now? This was part of an emotional letter written by M K Stalin, following the death of his father, Karunanidhi, who passed away on Tuesday.

M K Stalin

Here is the full transcript of the letter, translated from Tamil to English:

"You used to tell me the place where ever you go. Now, where have you gone without telling me? Where did you go leaving us all in the lurch? You had said 33 years back, what should be written in your memorial- Here lies the person who worked untiringly throughout his life. Have you now decided that you did enough for Tamil society."

" Are you hiding somewhere, to see if anyone can beat your achievements? On June 3, the day of your birthday, I begged for at least half the ability you had. Now will you give the heart you got long ago from Arignar Anna, to me? Because, with that significant donation, we will fulfill your unfulfilled dreams and ideals."

"On behalf of crores of 'Udanpirappukkal' (Karunanidhi used to address DMK cadre as Udanpirappu (blood brothers), I appeal to you: "Just utter the phrase 'Udanpirappe' once and that will make us work for a century! I used to address you as 'thalaivare' (leader) most of the time in my life than calling you as 'appa'. At least now, shall I address you once as 'appa'?"
