I am sure many of you have seen this photo before. I have seen this and also if I am right, there is a video clip of this also part of “Sage of Kanchi” documentary movie. Until this morning, I was under the impression that this scene was remade with an actor. Only today I came to know that there is no actor here and what we see is none other than our ummachi thatha walking on this bridge with barefoot! Thanks to Sri Kumar of Vignesh studio who told me this. I was shocked when I heard that. It is a very very risky thing to do as the wind is pretty strong and with no shoes etc, one does not get any grip and it appears that Periyava must be in his 70s or even 80s when He walked! I dont know how long Periyava walked. When I googled for Pamban bridge railway line, I got many pictures and they are very long tracks….
Only Periyava can do all these!
