Bishwa Nath Singh:

Let us remember that great son of India who was very fondly and affectionately known as the Gandhi of the South who had honor to be awarded with India’s highest civilian honor, the Bharat Ratna, posthumously in 1976 and pay our respectful homage and floral tribute to him! He was none else than K.Kamaraj. One can have a glimpse of his life-history that is appended separately.

Bishwa Nath Singh :
Can we recollect that Kumarasami Kamaraj also known as K. Kamaraj was an Indian politician popularly known to be the kingmaker in Indian politics, and more known for his honesty, integrity and simplicity? He was deeply involved in the India...n independence movement and was a close ally of Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. He was instrumental in bringing to power two Prime Ministers, Lal Bahadur Shastri in 1964 and Indira Gandhi in 1966. He was affectionately known as the Gandhi of the South. He had given a simple advice to all ministers to face the problem. Don't evade it and find a solution, however small. People will be satisfied if something is done to them and they are properly attended and taken care of by all the Ministers. Followed by him a number of Central and State ministers like Lal Bahadur Shastri, Jagjivan Ram, Satyendra Narayan Sinha, Morarji Desai and S.K. Patil followed suit and resigned from their posts. In 1964, Kamaraj was elected 'Congress President' and he successfully navigated the party and the nation through the stormy years following Nehru's death. Kamaraj’s political maturity came in full view when Nehru died in 1964. How he settled the succession issue for the Prime Ministers hip was amply proved by his choice of Lal Bahadur Shastri and Indira Gandhi in succession. He was born on July 15, 1903 and died on October 2,1975 at the age of over seventy three years who had earned his name and fame but for his patriotism, simplicity and honesty. He was awarded India’s highest civilian honor, the Bharat Ratna, posthumously in 1976. The domestic terminal of the Chennai airport is named Kamaraj Terminal in his honor. He was hailed as one of the greatest of leaders of all the free world by the then US vice-president Hubert Humphrey Let us join to pay our floral tribute to him who will be remembered and cherished for long for his good deeds!
