Prominent persons say that MGR always succeeded in whatever venture he went to. When he entered as an Actor he was successful in the Box Office. When he produced, the Films were successful – sumptuous sets and costumes are well remembered. When he Directed movies he was far superior to others, the theme of the film, the portrayal, the camera angle, the editing, the fights etc., when he entered Politics he was the Champion, undefeated!
In one instance MGR’s Mentor “Anna Durai” quoted that whatever field my brother (MGR) enters he will succeed, because MGR has mammoth Will Power and his endeavour to triumph.
One who knows the enemy and knows himself will not be endangered in a hundred engagements.
One who does not know the enemy but knows himself will sometimes be victorious, sometimes meet with defeat.
One who know neither the enemy nor himself will invariably be defeated in every engagement.
Putting in a Nut shell what is the secret of MGR’s success, he knows himself and he knows his enemies.
The song in his movie “Vettaikaran” (Hunter)
“உன்னை அறிந்தால் நீ உன்னை அறிந்தால்
தலை வணங்காமல் நீ வாழலாம்”
Know Yourself Know yourself,
So that you will strive in the World,
You can be high or low in position,
But you don’t have to bow out in Life.
(Pardon for my Translation)
Your comments are valuable for me.
