The most definitive biography of one of the most popular Indian politician, Karunanidhi. Writer-turned-politician Muthuvel Karunanidhi is amongst the most important political figures India has ever seen. He was the chief minister of Tamil Nadu for five terms and leader of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) for over five decades. Still remembered for his controversial but fruitful career as a regional leader, his contribution to Tamil history and culture has been invaluable. Meticulously researched and deeply engrossing, Karunanidhi: A Life delves into the life and times of this unforgettable man and his contribution to Indian politics.

Very detailed and engaging read about Kalaignar in an accessible and layman friendly manner. Would recommend this to those interested in Dravidian politics, Self Respect movement and the Development of TN State.
