V.P. Sadagopan - Chennai, India
D.K. Pattammal added flavour to my town Kanchipuram. And, she is from my own village Damal, eight miles west to Kanchipuram on the Bangalore Road. The one thing which always rings in us is her `AADUVOME PALLUP PAADUVOME'. In her voice, I feel, Bharatiyar expressed his confidence of attaining Independence. A great soul. Truly, DKP, MS and MLV were our time's Trinity.
