Tamil actor, director, editor, political critic, intellect, lawyer and above all a devotee of Mahaswami passed away few hours back in Chennai.
Sri Cho is unique in every way – highly talented in every field he walked into. His versatility and his depth of knowledge in every field is impeccable. His outlook towards national politics and his ability to mentor and advice top leaders truly in the best interest of the country should not be forgotten.
His knowledge in Ramanyanam, Mahabharatham, Bagawatham, Bagawad Gita is amazing. I have seen his books on these topics in Giri traders. He has been a strong supporter of Sri Kanchi Matam for a very long time. He was one of those few folks who were bold enough to criticize TN goat’s action against the Matam during our crisis. Till his last breath, he was proud to call himself brahmin and worked hard to support Hinduism in every manner – particularly helped people who were brain-washed by politically-motivated atheist in TN. I remember one video where he was blasting Karunanidhi for often using the word Sankara Matam in sarcastic manner. Cho went on detailing how long/complex the process is for selecting a peetadhipathi of a Sankara Matam! I vaguely remember it part of Q&A session in his anniversary function for Tughlak magazine few years back.
Here is a small clip from his “Engey Brahmanan” series where he talks about Mahaswami. Even in that interview he very candidly says that he is not qualified to be called as close to Periyava.
Sri Cho – we will miss you dearly. TN had lost one of its finest intellects. We pray Mahaperiyava to bless the departed soul.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Shankara!
