SREE SREE THAKUR’S MESSAGE
“The degeneration of humanity began at that moment when the unseen God was made infinite and, ignoring the seers, the worship of their sayings began. Oh mankind! If you desire to invoke your good, forget sectarian conflict. Be regardful to all the past prophets. Be attached to your living master or God and take only those who love Him as your own. Because all the past prophets are consummated in the divine man of the present.” Anukulchandra did not accept anyone as his disciple if he or she wanted to change his or her faith. Anukulchandra advocated that people of all faiths could come together and strengthen communal harmony.”

June Eighteenth is the hundred and ninth anniversary a great man
A great simple, noble unassuming leader from Tamilnadu
Late P Kakkan, Tamil Nadu’s formidable leader and Indian
Freedom fighters. Kakkan’s rich legacy and history is sadly left
Languishing from the hearts of the people.Most unfortunate.
Look at his condition.“Then Tamilnadu Chief Minister MGR
Saw a woman among the morning crowd, got out of his car,
Went up to her and inquired about her husband. Invited her
To eat and said that a car would take her home. She was former
Congress minister Kakkan’s wife. Kakkan could not pay meager rent
Faced eviction from his government accommodation. Asking for a day’s
Time, his wife approached MGR who settled all rental dues from his
Personal funds. The next day, a government order announced free
housing to Kakkan, and granted a monthly stipend of RUPEES FIVE HUNDRED!
This continued to his family even after his death. Tamil poet Kannadasan said,
“Any party man would have to praise MGR for helping a martyr like Kakkan.’”
That was the condition of a former Stae Minister and that shows simplicity.
