Green Miles
As a child, I would sit atop the patio of aunty Madhavi’s
house, nestled amidst miles of green paddy fields, and
watch her son-in-law Sreedharan Nair, with a full palate
of oil colours, making the canvas on the easel come alive
with each stroke. I would not imagine then that all over
the world thousands of soldiers were trying to kill each
other to win the World War 2 Cup. Most days when there
was no school, I used to be a fixture in the said patio. If I
had persisted with my self education, I would perhaps
have overtaken Raja Ravi Varma! Things petered out and mostly panned out - pushing me into an unchartered
lawyer’s life, filled with love for all creations and malice
towards none!
The kind old Truman, with love for the suffering humanity, declared his innings closed after his two batsmen, the
atom bombs, had in a trice sent thousands of the good, the
bad and the uglies to their infernal abode. Earlier, our own
Subash Chandra Bose was chosen as India’s representative by proxy and remains an eternal enigma to those who
specialise in making the imagination run riotto make him
a super human, savoured by readers of action thrillers of
the Wild West.
Some of them are petitioning God to lift the veil of
secrecy to reveal the indestructible hero who, according
to their reading of India’s modern history, won freedom for
Bharat from the White hyenas. These incurable insomniacs have, along with a brand new flag, been given the
constitutional right to believe that the breath of truth
blows through every speck of the atom of our Constitution. I believe in letting go of the past and not muddy the
present with unnecessary dissections. We are pure not
merely because Gandhi, Nehru, Bose and many more
unnamed freedom fighters inhaled and exhaled the spiritual air of this wonderful land, but that this land Bharat
has been holy from time immemorial and that is one up
on the others, a unique diktat.
You live by your credowhich,if diagnosed in good time,
acts as a natural draw to those with a spark of holiness.
It is therefore not surprising that our country was overflowing with amazing individuals such as SC Bose who put
the country before self and radiated the kind of patriotism
and spirit that made this land a truly liveable placein
harmony with all creations, irrespective of the colour of
the skin or assumed sins. It is very much like the island
of peace I experienced as a boy of tenwatching the
emerald green fields of paddy, nursing a cup of steaming
tea on my aunt’s patio long, long ago.

Ceiling on Post Office Savings account should be
Sir, The Post Office Savings Bank rule prescribes a ceiling of Rs. 1 lakh
for single accounts and Rs. 2 lakhs for joint holder accounts. The ceiling
was alright when the value of rupee was high but over the years the value
of rupee has considerably declined and the ceiling should be removed
or enhanced considerably. – K. Vaidyanathan, 15/1, North Usman

Avoid revealing PAN number unless mandatory
Sir, Sometime back, the Income Tax Department had come out with
an advisory to the public that they should avoid revealing Permanent
Account Number (PAN) while booking train tickets. Many passengers
provide their PAN for Tatkal bookings leading to the number and name
of the holder coming into public domain. The notification stated that
citing one’s PAN while booking railway tickets could be a grave security
hazard as the Indian Railways displays the PAN, name, sex, age of the
passengers on the reservations charts. Fraudsters and traders use these
details for benami transactions. The above advisory came very true the
other day, when our Association’s secretary had been to the Chennai
Central Station to see off one of his relatives. He noticed a youngster
peering at the reservation charts pasted on the train and noting details
on a paper. Realizing that something was amiss, he confronted the
youth. The youth said that he was appointed by an agent to note down
the name of the passenger with details of sex/age and the PAN which
are indicated in the reservation chart. He further said that he is paid Rs.
20 per listing. The details are sold to traders for benami transactions. In
view of the above, the public are requested not to reveal the PAN for
transactions other than wherever it has been made mandatory by the
Income Tax Department. The Railways lists many other options for
proof of identity like Aadhaar card, voters’ photo identity card, passport,
driving license to name a few. While the Railways must launch a drive
to bring to book those behind this, it must avoid giving details of PAN
in the reservation chart in the larger interest of the traveling public.—

CMWSSB yet to issue new tax cards
Sir, Chennai Metro Water Supply & Sewerage Board (CMWSSB) has
not yet issued the new water and sewerage tax cards to consumers for
payment of the tax and levy in this regard. The card was last issued in 2010
and was valid for payments up to March 31 of this year. The authorities
in charge should have got the new cards printed much in advance and
kept them ready for distribution in the first week of April. Advance
payment of the taxes due must be rewarded with an incentive of 5% to
maximize collection and achieve their targeted collection easily and
quickly instead of frantic last minute action of announcements requesting
the tax payers to pay the dues before the 31st of March. I hope the
authorities take prompt action to issue the new cards.—K.

Mambalam resident sings with
Kamal Haasan
By Our Staff
It was a dream
come true for new
singer Rukmini Ashok
Kumar (resident of
West Mambalam)
when she sang a song
with Kamal Haasan
in his latest film
‘Uttama Villain’.
Recalling how she got the
chance to sing for the film for
which Ghibran has provided
the musical score, she said, “It
all began when I met Ghibran
at an audio function and told
him that I am a singer and
wanted to sing for him. He told
me to send him my demo CD.
After some days I got a call
from his office to come to the
recording theater in Valasaravakkam. He asked me whether I know Carnatic music. I
said ‘yes’ and told that I am
also learning Hindustani music. He told me to sing the lines
of the song for the film and
everything was over in no time.
He said that the director of the
movie must give his approval
and I was waiting for the green
signal from his office. Every
now and then I used to call his
office. Before the release of the
audio on March 1, I came to

hurt in mishap
A 2-wheeler rider was injured
in his right leg in an accident
involving a car at 12.30 p.m on
April 18 at the junction of Gopalan Street and Postal Colony
2nd Street, West Mam-balam.
The rider was unable to
move and was lying in the spot
for more than half hour waiting
for an ambulance. Medical
assistants in the ambulance
gave him first aid before taking
him to a private hospital.
Policemen attached to R3
Ashok Nagar police dispersed
the huge crowd which had
gathered at the spot and
restored normal flow of traffic.
Residents of the area said
that accidents occurred
frequently in the absence of
speedbreakers in the busy
residential area.
know that it was for the film
‘Uttama Villain’ and I was so
excited. I thanked the music
director for giving me the biggest chance of my career”.
She also added, “Singing for
a music director like Ghibran
and rendering the lines written
and sung by the legend Kamal
Haasan, who is a master in all
departments of film making, is
something more than an Oscar award for a new singer like
me. One can see in the music
album of ‘Uttama Villain’ that
Kamal sir has written nearly
all the songs and sung them
with more than one singer but
the song ‘Iraniyan Naadagam’
has been sung only by both of
us. Ghibran told me that Kamal
sir’s favo-urite number in the
album is ‘Iraniyan Naadagam’which is accompanied by
Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra. I do not know how to thank
both Kamal sir and
music director Ghibran for giving me this
opportunity”. Just
days before the audio
release of ‘Uttama Villain’, Rukmini heard
that the song had also
been approved by
Kamal Haasan.
She met Kamal
Haasan and got his blessings.
He wrote a note in which he
said, “Isaiyum Vazhkaiyum
Sirakka Vazh-thukkal” (let
music and your life prosper
always) and posed for a photograph with her. “I will always
treasure the note”, she said.
This is her first film song in
Tamil. She has sung for music
director Deva for a Sai Baba
album, S. S. Kumaran for his
Malayalam movie “Kerala.
Com” and a Tulu number. She
has lent her voice for music
directors V. Thashi, Faisal,
Prem, Manikanth Kadhri and
L. V. Ganesan.
She learnt Carnatic music
from Hemalatha Narasimhan
and Padma Chandilyan, and is
currently getting training in
Hindustani music from Pandit
Ballesh and his sons Krishna
and Prakash. She can be contacted in phone 2434 3319.

Two suspects
escape after
attacking cops on
way to police
By Our Staff Reporters
Four robbers attacked policemen in a bid to escape when
they were being taken to the
MGR Nagar police station in
an auto rickshaw in Ashok
Nagar on April 20. Two of them
escaped while the other two
were caught immediately.
The MGR Nagar police personnel had nabbed the four men
during a vehicle check after
they gave contradictory statements. Preliminary inquiries
revealed that they used to rob
women on deserted streets. The
suspects tried to escape when
they were being taken back to
MGR Nagar police station after being produced before the
Assistant Commissioner of
Police (Ashok Nagar).
The auto rickshaw was passing through a deserted stretch
when two of the suspects suddenly attacked sub-inspector
Arulanandam and two police
constables accompanying
them. They pushed them out
of the vehicle and fled.
The police were successful in
catching two of them while the
other two escaped.
