When I shook hands with God...

I was in ecstasy when Kamalhaasan looked into my Camera. Who wouldn't be ?

Well, I wasn't any photographer shooting him, but just a fan waiting to take a photo along with him. Kamalhaasan Narpani Mandram had organized a Narpani Vizha at Sanskrit College, Mylapore, Yesterday. And I was there as prompt as any Kamal fan would have been. And how did the man enter into the gate ? Wow ! The black outfit with a clean shaven face. He looked absolutely gorgeous.

He came in, planted a tree and then walked straight to the stage and started the photo-session. The large, spacious Sanskrit College looked Cramped all of a sudden. All narpani iyakkams from all districts had turned up to take photographs, standing alongside the shoulders of Padmashree Kamalhaasan. They donated whatever they had collected that were to reach the poor and needy. Something that any other Rasigar Mandram should take note of.

That Car - Toyota Prado 4111 - on the previous post belonged to thalaivar.

I left, soon as my turn to shake hands with God was over. But I was told that Kamal stayed back until the last man on the Queue took photos with him. Thats a nice gesture towards the fellows who wouldn't mind standing in the Queue to watch him in theatres.

This photo becomes the image of the week. Actually, to me - personally, it is an image for a lifetime.
