J.Jayalalithaa’s Life Journey

Jayalalithaa, who suffered a massive cardiac arrest on Sunday evening at Apollo Hospitals in Chennai where she had been undergoing treatment since September 22, passed away at the age of 68. Jayalalithaa, tinsel town heroine who practised politics on her own terms to remain one of the main poles of Tamil Nadu politics for three decades, was a feisty leader with a lot of grit and determination staging remarkable comebacks despite setbacks on account of corruption cases. A teen starlet, who acted with the who’s who of Tamil cinema in the sixties and seventies, Jayalalitha went on to become a five-time chief minister of Tamil Nadu, effortlessly inheriting the mantle of her mentor and superstar MGR.
