MGR: The Man and the MythIt was a period of turbulence, epoch-making in some ways, and calamitous in others. Ranging from the murky goings-on among the satraps of the last 2 decades in the Tamil Nadu political sweepstakes, to the power-packed drama of the taming of the Tamil Tigers—, Mr Mohandas turns the light on the highpoints of MGR's political years.The IPS officer rose from Superin-tendent of Police in the dusty dis-trict of Ramanathapuram in the dee south of Tamil Nadu to the dizzy heights of power in the Ad-ministration that gave him the rare opportunity to shape, in many dif-ferent ways, the destiny of the State of Tamil Nadu.Known variously, and often er-roneously, as MGR's 'eyes and ears', a 'trouble shooter' and 'bogeyman', Mr Mohandas brings to bear upon the book his insightful under-standing of all that churned in the cauldron of Tamil Nadu politics in the MGR years.Whether it was the naxalite menace in some pockets of the State, or the monstrous problem of the Tamil Tigers, the swiftness of operation and the agility with which the Administration responded reflected creditably all through the years on the MGR Government.This candid account of the troubled times is a compelling, though sordid, tale of the sycophan-cy of MGR's men, the insane im-molations, and the political machinations.Above all is the towering persona of MGR, his native understanding of it all, and his sphinx-like attitude to the tide of events that overwhelmed him - from the glorious to the catastrophic.Mr Mohandas blends his ringside view of the heady days of MGR's ascendance to power and the tumul-tuous years that followed, with an understanding of the portents and prospects that transcend the realm of the bureaucrat.What emerges is a touching portrait of a larger-than-life MGR seen at close quarters; as a man at once formidable and endearing
