While it’s improper to judge a man when he is down, the same rule can’t be applied for Karunanidhi and his party men. A yellow shawl, a quick visit by Sai baba to bless him and his family were all shushed as irrelevant; now with his smart ass attitude Karunanidhi will again deem his wife’s visit to Thirukadaiyur as irrelevant. All his life he portrayed himself as a savior of Dravidians and synchronized the word Dravidians with someone who is an atheist, now his wife spends her time at temples to bless her husband with long life and prosperity. May be Karunanidhi will come up with a smart ass comment that it was his second wife and that, technically (since she is illegal) it doesn’t count…. I would like to quote something from Douglas MacArthur which describes this scoundrel better,
“Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair”
Being an atheist is not something I am against, in some cases it might show how strong of a human being you are. After all God is not someone who is going sit by and help you and your family in your every day life. In my view visiting a Temple might not help you to solve your crisis but it might help you soothe your pain, it is like taking a fever suppressant, it might not cure the fever but make your life little bit more comfortable. So in essence, if you argue that the world should not take fever suppressant, well I see your point; then prove to the world by following the path.
