Remembering Cho on 47th anniversary of his magazine 'Thuglak'
The 47th anniversary celebration of Tamil Nadu's popular magazine "Thuglak" founded by late "Cho" Ramaswamy was organised on 15 January coinciding with the local festival of "Pongal". This was the first such observance after Cho's death on December 7, 2016, at an age of 82. He was the founder and editor of Thughlak.
The event was attended by thousands of his followers, admirers, friends, politicians as well as adversaries. It was addressed by PM Narendra Modi via video-conference.

Cho (5 October 1934 - 7 December 2016), whose real name was Srinivasa Iyer, had been a man of many shades. He was a Tamil actor, comedian, journalist, editor, political satirist, playwright and dialogue writer, film director and lawyer - all rolled into one.

He had passed away two days after the demise of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalithaa, who was his close friend.

While remembering Cho, I would like to leave you five of his quotes as follows.

-Leaders cannot be created by television channels.

-Independence made me important.

-In practical politics and administration the Mahatama's (Gandhi's) ideals be treated as a text, a philosophy, not as a law.

-If Left has a future Left, India has no future Left.

- Why throw a raw egg at me when you can make me an omelette?
