    He could have found out the truth through reliable sources but dying should have been his last option. Here one cannot state he gave his life for Amma as no authentic evidence is out as of now. It's only the spur of his emotions that compelled him to take such a hasty decision. Neither has he gained anything nor Amma. It's only that his soul will never ever be able to RIP and his unfortunate family will have to bear the brunt. I pity his eternity.

      Does this happen in Western countries? Many similar incidents had happened in India before. If the leaders are so great to the extent to immolate oneself and dying of heart attack due to stress, why Tamil Nadu and other states of India are still undeveloped and corruption is order of the day? Even in Singapore, when the late Lee Kuan Yew, the person who was the architect of Singapore's develpment ( a nation with no natural resources/comoare the exchange rate of the Indian Rupee and Singapore Dollar), the Singaporeans did not over react. There is zero corruption in Singapore. Millions of people living in squatters and government giving freebies from the of alcohol are clear examples of the incompetency of the leaders of Tamil Nadu or Indian leaders in the s. Yet, people forsake their families and children for the sake of their leaders. What a shame!

          Mr. Rayman don't generalise one man's foolishness to the w development status of Tamil Nadu. The state of Taml Nadu is far more developed than even the state of Gujarat which has been dominantly marketed by our great PM. Tamil Nadu is the major contributor of India's automobile production and other industrial products. Please turn the page of records/facts before commenting on any state.
