CUDDALORE: From history of the Justice Party to the conquest of Rajendra Chola, from Speeches that Changed the World to Leadership Wisdom by Robin Sharma, DMK working president MK Stalin’s home library, and many others across the State, got a lot richer on Wednesday after thousands of DMK members showered him with books to celebrate his birthday.

Since Stalin requested them to gift him books, instead of the expensive but purposeless shawls, DMK men across the State have been flocking to bookstores for the past couple of days. After reaching Chennai on Tuesday evening, Neyveli MLA Saba Rajendran went straight to Higginbotham’s bookstore, where he met his party colleague, S Austin, the Kanniyakumari MLA. Hailing from Cuddalore, where Vallalar Ramalinga Adigal established the Sathyagnana Sabai at Vadalur, Rajendran had already bought all the volumes of Vallalar’s work

Thiruvarutpa. “And from the store, I bought Leadership Wisdom by Robin Sharma,” he said.

Rajya Sabha member ‘Tiruchy’ N Siva, known to be a book lover in the old DMK strain, went back to history to choose the volumes of Neethi Katchi Varalaru (History of Justice Party), the predecessor of the Dravidian major. “This book would be helpful in gaining a deep understanding about the history of Justice Party,” he said.

Ariyalur district secretary S Sivasankar, chose to gift the book Gangaikonda Rajendran.
