Vairamuthu – the Greatest and highly influential Poet has been caught into sexual harassment, exploitation and sexploitation!

October 10, 2018

Vairamuthu – the Greatest and highly influential Poet has been caught into sexual harassment, exploitation and sexploitation!

Vairamuthu - Chinmayi tweets

In high-tech industries how sexploitation breeds: Indian, for that matter, any film industry has been a place of exploitation and sexploitation place only. In earlier times, the actresses and other women associated with films might not have expressed their sufferings openly. Or such sexual harassment narratives might have been confined to the film field and gossiping. With the rise of media and social media etc., people get awareness and stated expressing their views opinion and perspective anonymously or openly using social media. Government of India has passed strict legislation to prosecute the sexploiters at working places. In government offices, definitely, women have started coming out, as full support is extended to them. However, in sophisticated industries, including IT sector, most of the sexploitations, harassments and even crimes are suppressed, oppressed and buried with high-tech compromises. Of course, cine-field has been more sophisticated by other means, yet, some of them have come out to pinpoint the sexual animals hiding behind virtuous masks.

Vairamuthu - Samantha Chinmayi and another

“Me Too” exposing sexual animals prowling in cinema industry: While the MeToo movement goes on in India, three anonymous women have accused Vairamuthu, a popular lyricist in Tamil Cinema, of sexual harassment, while another woman accused veteran actor Radha Ravi[1]. Vairamuthu, with political clout reigns supreme and controls all his critics. Though, recently, caught in “Andal controversy” he could manipulate and escape from legal action initiated. Now, started accusations against him by cine-field women. Two female singers spoke of their instances where they were invited to Vairamuthu’s house-cum-office. Both were 18 years old when they were harassed by him[2]. While one of the women said that he hugged and kissed her, the other shared that he closed the room and touched her[3]. Journalist Sandhya Menon tweeted the victims accounts on their behalf[4].

Vairamuthu - Chinmayi tweets.2

After NanaPatekar and all, now Vairamuthu: After allegations of sexual harassment by Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta on Nana Patekar kicked off the #MeToo movement in India, the campaign has hit Tamil cinema, too, with lyricist Vairamuthu being accused of alleged sexual abuse by a woman, who requested anonymity[5]. This has prompted several others to come forward with their stories on the award-winning lyricist. Singer Chinmayi Sripada, who has been sharing various other #MeToo stories on her social networking page, has reacted and shared the stories on Vairamuthu, too[6]. An anonymous woman has accused the lyricist of sexual harassment at workplace when she was just 18 years of age. Chinmayi shared the story on social media and added, “The industry knows; the men know. #TimesUp The time is bloody up.” The industry knows; the men know. #TimesUp The time is bloody up. https://t.co/UuZpaNQBhm

Vairamuthu - Sandhya Menon tweets

Chinmayi’s Sripada’s open tweets pointing Vairamuthu: After the first allegation surfaced against Vairamuthu, many others started sharing their story as well. A female singer has alleged that she was asked to join Vairamuthu and a producer at a hotel to spend the night with them, in turn, promising her an opportunity to sing in the producer’s movie.  She accused Tamil poet lyricist Vairamuthu of harassing her when they were both in Switzerland for an album launch or a book launch (she’s not sure) in 2005 or 2006. What she recorded, “Sharing her story on social media, the National Award-winning singer said[7]: “Year 2005/2006 maybe… Veezhamattom, an album for Sri Lankan Tamizhs that I had sung in, as had Manikka Vinayagam sir… We went to Switzerland… We sang… We performed… Everyone left. Only my mother and I were asked to stay back. The organizer (I don’t remember his name) asked me to visit Vairamuthu sir in a hotel in Lucerne. I asked why. He told me to cooperate. I refused. We demanded to be sent back to India. He said ‘You won’t have a career!’ My mother and I both put our foot down… demanded an earlier flight to India and came back.”

18-years girl harassed by Vairamuthu: Another girl has shared her story, too, and according to her, Vairamuthu called her to his office to appreciate her work and tried to touch her inappropriately.

Vairamuthu - Siddharth support Chinmayi

Siddharth supports for the cause: Actor Siddharth, who has been proactively tweeting about the #MeToo movement catching up in the Indian film industry, alsobacked Chinmayi Sripaada and tweeted[8]: “Multiple women are speaking out against #Vairamuthu. Without judging anyone, they must be heard. When somebody of Chinmayi’s stature who has so much to lose, stands by the accusers, that’s huge!”

Chinmayee complained against Vauramuthu 09-10-2018

 

Samantha and Varalaxmi too support: Samantha, who has increasingly been speaking out against gender discrimination, took to Twitter and wrote[9], “I am so happy that more and more women are finding the strength to say #MeToo. Your bravery is commendable. I am sorry though that some people, even other women themselves will shame and burden you with the question of proof and doubt. Just know that you are saving many little girls with your voice. I support the #MeTooIndia movement.” She further appreciated singer Chinmayi for her courage to call out Vairamuthu. Actor Varalaxmi Sarathkumar also tweeted in support of the #MeToo movement[10], saying that it was “alarming” to hear these stories. She said that she’d stood up for #MeToo last year and that she wanted more women to come forward and speak up.

Vairamuthu - need not advise to society

Vairamuthu, intellectuality, virtuosity: Vairamuthu, with the political support  reigning supreme in film industry, though, he has less talent than Kannadasan. He has been parading as “Great Poet” and got state and national awards with political recommendations.  The “Andal controversy” exposed his intellectuality of perversity and duplicity. Now comes the sexual harassment accusation. It pierces his virtuosity veil.

  • Virtuosity is used particularly to describe musicians, but also often for writers, actors, dancers, and athletes. A virtuoso is a highly skilled performer, and a virtuoso performance is one that astonishes the audience by its feats.
  • Psychologically there were no doubt good reasons for my attempt; and it was worth while, if only to see of what excesses I was capable in that sort of virtuosity
  • The Law Enforcement Technology Advancement Centre (LETAC) has developed SID version 6.7: a Sadistic, Intelligent, and Dangerous virtual reality entity which is synthesized from the personalities of more than 150 serial killers.
  • Virtuosity is a 1995 American science fiction action film directed by Brett Leonard, and starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. Howard W. Koch, Jr. served as an executive producer for the film.

In any case, he gets exposed. Better, he stops his advice, discourses etc., given to society and enjoy his life within his private rooms and parlours. The society does not need such spoilers.

V. Shanmuganathan: Was he a victim, scapegoat sacrificed for wrong calculations ? (3)

ami-shah-opposed-by-tur-i-meghalaya

Anti-BJP groups not properly identified, negotiated and satisfied: TUR leader Angela Rngad said while adding, “We want to show that the BJP’s anti people policies will not be tolerated.” Stating that the protest is also to show all that the BJP’s hate campaigns will not be accepted in the state, she alleged that the party, through the Ghar Wapsi and policies of grabbing of farmers’ lands, the make in India campaign are all efforts to enslave every citizens of country. Referring to the ban on beef and atrocities against the minority, Rngad accused the BJP of being a party that actually attacks the rights of people like attacking the lifestyle, food culture and habits and way of dressing. KNU general secretary S Diengdoh said that this indifferent attitude of the BJP against the minorities including Christians is totally undemocratic while adding that it is against the Constitution of India. HNPF president R Rani questioned why these issues have cropped up only after the BJP was voted to power. Here only, that the BJP had not properly understood the groups was revealed, to cite an example based on the media reports. He said, “We suspect that this is being instigated and we demand that the BJP central leadership respects all religious communities.” It is a futile exercise to have any negotiation with these separatist groups, as they have been carrying out their activities since independence supported by the US, Chinese and Pakistani forces with all facilities, where the BJP is not a match for them.

Shanmuganathan’s experiments with Christianity, Christians and Christmas (2015-16): His sudden praising of Christianity, Christians, their services were quite amusing, as he hid not have any experience in “inter religious dialogue”. Some of the Tamilnadu ideologists had gone there enjoying time, but, obviously misled them with their half-baked ideas and imagined details. Whenever, he visited Tamilnadu and Chennai, a coterie never allowed other friends known to him to approach him. This was openly revealed during the facilitation programme organized and Chennai. Because of his dual role here and there, he was rather confused with the inputs stuffed by the fellow-ideologists. The Church was so delighted to record that[1], “The Christmas celebration this year has got more meaningful since the head of the state the governor of Meghalaya Mr  V. Shanmuganathan himself attended  in the Christmas service  at Laitumkhrah Presbyterian Church, Shillong on 25th December, 2016”.  Of course, he had been so considerate with the Christians since 2015.  He hosted Christmas at Rajbhawan with all fanfare. He gave discourse from biblical narratives, just like a pastor / priest from the pulpit. One website[2] characteristically as “Meghalaya Governor, V. Shanmuganathan while sharing inspirational stories said that churches have shown compassion and dedication towards the service of mankind”. The Presbyterian Church was so happy, as he participated the services with Bible in his hands[3]. Whether, he was experimenting with the different denominations, or dialoging in theology or otherwise, only God knows, as some of the websites started disappearing[4].

Inaugurated and praised Mother Teresa (September 2016): Meghalaya hosted a 4-day film festival titled ‘Mother Teresa International Film Festival (MTIFF)’ based on the life and teachings of noble laureate – Mother Teresa from September 6 to 9, 2016 in Shillong[5]. Addressing the inaugural function, the Governor stated that Mother Teresa represents the message of love, peace, enduring strength, hope and service to the world at large[6]. Underlining that understanding the pain of others is no easy a task, the Governor stated that Mother Teresa understood the pain of acute poverty. “She served the destitute, lepers, abandoned children, old people, the poorest of the poor and the downtrodden. Because she understood their pain, she was a solace, a helping hand and a source of comfort to them” he further stated. Showing his admiration for Mother Teresa for identifying herself with her love for the Almighty, he said that in a world where people identify themselves by the power they hold, or the money they possess, what truly marks Mother Teresa’s greatness is her identification of herself with her love of God. Applauding the great works and selfless services of Mother Theresa’s followers he further stated that their work must extend to all places. In August, when there was a photo of Teresa was there in the Spiritual Fair pur up by ASI, a huge cry was made and it was removed. However, they might not be knowing abut this!

Opposition to ADSPA, Left mobilization and BJP governor in isolation: In a recent Order of the High Court of Meghalaya[7] dated 2.11.2015 passed in Writ Petition (C) No. 127 of 2015, the High Court of Meghalaya has made a suo motu suggestion to the Central Government for the imposition of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958, in the Garo Hills area of Meghalaya[8]. “It is shocking and deeply disturbing that a draconian law like the AFSPA is being sought to be imposed through a judicial order. There have been protests against this order in the Garo Hills area and in Shillong. What follows is a statement which carries objections to this order endorsed by more than 60 concerned citizens, from various parts of India – some whom are well respected and accomplished individuals in their fields, like law, academia, journalism, films, bureaucracy and activism[9]. As usual in letter supporting the radicals signed by the eminent, elite and secularists appeared in the media. Thus, when Shanmuganathan came, it was not known as to whether he was understanding the problems and issues involved there in and around Meghalaya.

vshanmuganathan-inuaugurating-teresa-film-festival

Tribal youth festivals etc., have been a trap for him?: Of late, he was moving with different tribal groups and participating in their festivals. He participated the Wangala festival. Wangala is the festival of the Achiks (Garos), the post harvest festival where the harvest reaped is celebrated with thanks giving to the Gods ‘Misi Saljong’ and ‘Mima Kiri Rokkime’, the Gods of the fields and the paddy[10]. For the Achiks (Garos) the agrarian activities is not only physical labour but a spiritual journey as well which culminates in joy at the Wangala Festival.  Thus, with joy in their hearts and sprint in their feet, they perform the Wangala Dance which is actually a synchronized movement of symbolic nature which co – ordinates with the drum beats. The Wangala dance is therefore a story of the Garos in rhythm. The word ‘wanna’ refers to dance and merry making and ‘gala’ refers to offering in thanksgiving. Thus, the word ‘Wangala’ means the dance of ‘Thanksgiving’[11]. Thus, he went on attending many tribal festivals[12]. He compared Wangala with Pongal. In any case, he could have restricted his program-attending agenda carefully. At every level, the intriguing point is who was the PA or advisor to him, when he was discharging his official duties. Definitely, that person must have been known to him or RSS person. Then, he must have gone into all details in the context of Meghalaya and NE complexities.

Was he a victim, scapegoat sacrificed for wrong calculations?: He has been a genuine worker without any selfishness. As already mentioned with his hard-work he has come up. Now, the media comes out with stories that “Shanmuganathan belongs to Saiva Pillamar community (a forward community)” and thus had / have difference with Brahmin-friends and so on[13]. This is mischievous, as RSSwalas never talked in terms of caste, in any context. Thus, the “Shanmuganathan-Ganesan” variance as raised by “The Wire”can be ignored in the context[14]. Then come the remarks of RSS media incharge – Sadagopan. “But the state unit of the RSS has a different take on this issue”, as noted by the Wire, picking from “The Hindu”, at least judging by their initial reaction to Shanmuganathan’s resignation[15]. “It is an unfortunate incident… A person occupying a high position should be doubly careful to avoid such allegations, as he represents an organisation such as the RSS and the BJP,” said N. Sadagopan, the sangh’s state media coordinator, in an interview to The Hindu[16]. His response has been in fact, unfortunate, intriguing, shocking and irresponsible too, as how he could have come out with such words. Instead of analyzing the issue, one should not try to show off himself indulging in such remarks. As explained above, the different complexities, intricacies and complications involved, Shanmuganathan has done excellent work, in spite of his health. He had an open heart surgery and in soite of such condition, he was performing his duties relentlessly. He has lamented many times that though he had many friends in Chennai, none visited him when he was admitted in the hospital for open-heart surgery. In fact, he pained that nonde came to sign the forms for the conduct of the operation. Of course, it went on well. In fact, he Unfortunately, as pointed out elsewhere, the Tamil and Tamilnadu friends have not analyzed the NE complex issues, Meghalya tribal politics, Congress-anti-national nexus acting against him and informed him. Perhaps, they have not been trained to understand, though, they have been making trips to NE under different banners like ABVP, Vidhya Bharati and so on. Therefore, the Sangh Parivar should assess, reassess and re-examine the involved complicated issues and political gameplans and respond accordingly. They should be trained in the NE affairs with national and international agendas, as they have many ramifications. As for as Shanmuganathan is concerned, his good deeds would liberate from his temporary problem. May God shower his blessings!

V. Shanmuganathan: What went wrong with him and Sangh Parivar? (1)

anti-vs-campaign-blatantly-evident

Who is Shanmuganathan in Tamil Nadu politics and how did he rise to occupy a gubernatorial post?: The 67-year-old politician, a bachelor, hails from an agricultural family of modest means in Nagore, Nagapattinam district[1]. After graduating with an MA in political science, he became a full time RSS pracharak in 1969.  He rose steadily in the organisation and was the state RSS secretary from 1985 to 1995[2]. It was during his tenure as state secretary that the RSS headquarters in Chennai was razed to the ground on August 8, 1993 in a terrorist bombing that left scores of people killed and injured[3]. Old timers say he vowed on that day to build a new office within a year and came good on his promise. “It was difficult in those days as the BJP was in the opposition in Delhi and fundraising – especially for states like Tamil Nadu – was not at all in the radar of those who were in charge of budgetary allocations” says a senior BJP leader. In 1999, when the BJP-led NDA government headed by Atal Bihari Vajpayee was in power in Delhi, Shanmuganathan was drafted to the BJP and sent to the capital as additional secretary of the party’s parliamentary office[4]. During his time in the national capital, he struck up a close relationship with Narendra Modi, an RSS export to the BJP who became chief minister of Gujarat in 2001[5]. According to BJP leaders, Modi appreciated the fact that Shanmuganathan used to write positively about the state of affairs in Gujarat, especially after the 2002 riots, openly praise Modi’s ‘achievements’. In May 2015, Modi appointed him governor of Meghalaya.

on-26-january-cswo-and-thma-u-rangli-tur-held-a-demonstration-outside-the-shillong-raj-bhavan-photo-courtesy-angela-rangad-thma-u-rangliEnjoying life Rajbhawan staff blaming the Governor joining hands with the protesters: Shanmuganathan’s name first came in to the limelight when former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam died in Shillong on July 27, 2015 while addressing students at a university. Shanmuganathan claimed he was with him as governor of the state but later it emerged Shanmuganathan was nowhere on the scene when Kalam collapsed and was taken to hospital. “In reality, he was sleeping in his bedroom and [it was] only after the call from the Prime Minister [that he ran] to Bethany Hospital, Shillong, although, he was advised to visit Kalam” earlier, the Economic Times quoted one of his staff members as saying[6].  Actually, the Rajbhawan staff reportedly alleged that he was in the habit of telling lies, in the context of the present controversy[7]. All these prove that the staff, protesters and complainants were expecting an opportunity to hit him below the belt. Here, the media (Economic Times to The Wire) purposely carried the non-issue matter clubbing with the current issue, sensationalizing. “The Quint” had gone to the extreme of dubbing, “RSS Pracharak to Alleged ‘Playboy’: The Fall of Meghalaya Governor” it its caption[8]. Thus, the media attack-campaign can also be noted, that too, at a cheap level.

activists-holding-protests-in-shillong-demanding-resignation-of-v-shanmuganthan-photo-andrew-lyndem-facebookThe background of V. Shanmauganathan and his Governorship: Facing sexual harassment charges, Meghalaya Governor V. Shanmuganathan,  former Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ‘pracharak’, who was also in-charge of Arunachal Pradesh, on Thursday night (26-01-2017) resigned after a section of Raj Bhavan employees demanded his removal for “seriously compromising” the dignity of the gubernatorial office. Definitely, this news was suppressed by the groups of all ideologists for obvious reasons, as he has not been of that nature to be involved in controversies. Hailing from Thanjavur, he has been a post-graduate and an M.Phil in Political Science, and received the Madras University’s prestigious Gold Medal from its well-known Vice Chancellor T P Meenakshi Sundarnar.  Started working for RSS, he has been a good friend of lakhs and could remember them by name. He has been soft-spoken and friendly with all. He shifted to Delhi working for the Sangh-parivar organizations and then inducted into BJP “Think-tank”. Because of his hard work, political acumen and strategic ideas, he played a crucial role for BJP and elevated to Governorship in 2015. As BJP was planning to negotiate with the anti-national, seperatist and other groups of North-East, it wanted to maken them to mainstream with the factors of culture, tradition, heritage and civilization. The European, American and Chinese experts, researchers and propagandists have been brainwashed them as “non-Indians”, they had separate identity different from India and so on through literature, propagandist materials and physical ideological harassments. He had to face them under very hostile, demure and confronting conditions with suspicion working in all speeches, actions and interactions.

gov-in-out-meghalaya-controversyCongress versus BJP in Meghalaya: To some extent, the anti-RSS, anti-BJP and such categories also knew why he was posted there. Dr Mukul Sangma of Congress has been CM since April 2010 and the Congress was not happy with his appointment as Governor. Actually, there was proposal that Purno Agitok Sangma might be appointed as Governor, but, he was not done and unfortunately he died on March 4, 2016. Mukul Sangma in May 2014 itself accused NPP candidate and former chief minister P A Sangma of being “an agent of BJP” and contesting Lok Sabha elections to “propagate the message of RSS” adding that[9], “He (P A Sangma) is contesting the elections on an NPP ticket to propagate the message of RSS. Perhaps, a wolf in sheep’s clothing.” As Sangma was with Congress and moved towards BJP when he contested against Pranab Mukherjee, the daggers were drawn already. His strong worded outburst proved that he knew the BJP gameplan targeted against him[10]. In May 2016, Conrad Sangma, son of PA Sangma won the by-elections at the Tura Lok Sabha Constituency defeating Dikkanchi D Shira, wife of Mukul Sangma, the CM[11].  The BJP supported and campaigned for Conrad widening his influence[12]. This infuriated the husband CM, as father was dead, but his son to become a political competitor. It may be noted that in May 2016 only, the plan to target Shanmuganathan was hatched through the recruitment involving women.

full-text-pof-the-100-signed-complaint-letter-addressed-to-pm-headlineMolestation charges against V. Shanmughanathan: As Keshari Nath Tripathi was shifted to West Bengal as Governor, he became Governor in May 2015. Chief Minister Mukul Sangma said earlier in the day said that he was waiting for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Home Ministry to take a call. Obviously, he did not want to add more heat to the boiling controversy. Nearly 100 Raj Bhavan staff here petitioned President Pranab Mukherjee, the Prime Minister and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh seeking their intervention to remove the Governor and restore the “dignity of Raj Bhavan”. Thus, the media has already decided. They alleged that[13] Mr. Shanmuganathan had “seriously compromised the dignity of the Raj Bhavan and made it a ‘young ladies club’. “It has become a place where young ladies come and go at will on direct orders of the Governor… Many of them have direct access to his bedroom.” Thus, media pointing to the “bed room”, though, the woman accused him of only alleged “molestation”. Mr. Shanmuganathan, who took over as the Governor of Meghalaya in May 2015, on Thursday attended a Republic Day celebration in Arunachal Pradesh, whose additional charge he holds since November 2015 last following the removal of Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa.

violence-against-women-bogey-vs-by-turCSWO, TUR and RAIOT – the radical, separatist and anti-national forces acting against him:  He was moving with various organizations and groups in his official capacity as Governor of two important NE states, but, he was definitely not briefed properly about their backgrounds. He was encouraging all to come to him and discuss with him all sorts of issues. The Thma u Rangli Juki also known as TUR has been spearheading some sort of “self-determination” struggle through various issues like wages, human rights, imposition of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958, beef and so on. Women activists had begun a signature campaign here seeking Shanmuganathan’s removal[14]. The campaign, spearheaded by women-led Civil Society Women Organisation (CSWO) and Thma u Rangli Kuki (TUR), was launched following reports of inappropriate behaviour by the Governor Shamuganathan[15]. A woman job aspirant had also accused the Governor of making advances when she was appeared for an interview at the Raj Bhavan[16]. Thus, the dialoguers have turned against him with daggers. It is a crude joke that the Sangh-parivar did not know anything about this or the newly elected MP also did not care for him.
