Alone in the public - K B Rajaguru

It is a story – an imaginary painting of the news that we read all the way till this day. On hearing or reading a piece of information we will visualize them. Our visualization has its own limitations and may have thousands of variations from the fact. My work is of no exception, it is an outcome of logical thought supplied with available information and the attitude of the personalities involved. My utmost consideration in bringing such sensitive derivatives of Modern History is the words of Thiruvalluvar – ‘Knowledge alone can define the truth and we can’t go behind as it was said by personalities’.

‘I am the citizen of the Earth’ said the Greek philosopher Socrates, two thousand years back. ‘To us all the towns are same, all humans are our kin’ similar words were delivered by Kaniyan Poongundran of same age. The reason for such a feel and proclamation remains unknown. But their quotes imply all are equal and the borders are meaningless. In the way the birds do, they fly across the oceans and mountains for their life betterment, boundaries have nothing to do with them. But we the humans are interested in finding difference with other fellow human. This difference leads to boundaries. Giving up can be the only solution to bring a peaceful borderless Earth. Giving up is a product of magnanimity of the giver and gratefulness of the receiver. But the word ‘giving up’ has different synonyms in the history of mankind, such as betrayed, defeated, lost, captivated, imposed, oppressed, dominated, ordered, controlled, dependent, cornered and etc… Here I dealt with few consequences of ‘ given ups ‘ those occur in recent past.

'Animals never fear of their own kind, but humans do.'

Glimpse of foreword written by Mr. Seeman

(Chief Co ordinator - Naam Thamilar Katchi and a Movie Director)

"I happened to write this during my imprisonment at Vellore Central Jail under National Securities Act. My brother Rajaguru’s attempt in defence of Tamil Nationalism during this hard time is praise worthy."

"The writer had sowed many details on NAGA liberation and the EELAM liberation in the back drops of well coped story. I wish him to write more novels of this kind. For the uprising of the Tamil Nationalism the contributions of the learned youths like Rajaguru is admirable. I am confident that his attempt will fetch good results. And I wish my brother Rajaguru in this regard."

Glimpse of foreword written by Mr. Perarivalan

(Prisoner in Rajiv assasination case and a writer)

“That’s why when the people of our race were buried under the soil; these people were capable of preparing themselves for the next show without even having the minimum humanity. Writer tries to rebuild the so cut emotional nerves and attempted to give life to the same.

It is hard to realize that at the end of the story it is not only Kumaran left alone in the street, it is the remaining people of this race.”

- Perarivaalan,

Perarivaalan, a struggling victim of state and judicial denial, was arrested and sentenced to death by the supreme court of India in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. At the age of nineteen he was accused and imprisoned, it is been eighteen years he is staying behind the bars. Even after the main players of this assassination were all declared dead well before the case was took for judicial hearing.
