We hit the south road after breakfast on Saturday. And as we bypassed Mayiladuthurai, ww noticed that the banners and posters of the local Natyanjali competed with those that celebrated the birth day of former chief minister J. Jayalalithaa.
Jayalalithaa herself was beaming warmly. That single visual of her holding a broad smile at what must be a snide dig of light humor by a speaker at her meeting must have triggered that smile.
She looks beautiful. She was stunning when she stepped into politics.
Our dancers also looked resplendent in the banners, some erected on the central road median.
The logos of local sponsors underlined these promos. And all this must certainly popularize the Natyanjali festivals and perhaps draw more people, even if they stop and stare and then take their kids to be blessed by the temple elephant.
