It doesn't matter if he is not involved in politics, the command Rajnikanth holds over people is unparalleled. BJP's Prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi seems to realise that. According to sources, Modi will be holding a personal meeting with Rajnikanth at the latter's residence in Poes Garden. Mr Modi is in the city to attend a public meeting and will be meeting the actor later in the day. The reasons for the visit have not yet been specified. Looks like no one leaves Chennai without meeting Rajni.

Film doyen Balu Mahendra, a winner of five National Film awards, passed away at the Vijaya Hospital in the early hours of Thursday morning. The 74-year-old had been admitted in a critical condition earlier in the day, and died post a heart attack.

With an illustrious career spanning four decades of filmmaking in the roles of a director, screenwriter, editor and cinematographer, he had only recently made his debut in front of the camera in the film ‘Thalaimuraigal’. He had called it a time to embrace change, in an interview in December last year.

Mahendra gave Hindi cinema the fantastic Kamal Haasan- Sridevi starrer 'Sadma', which won two National film awards, as well as numerous stunning Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada films over the years. He was counted among the pioneering names for his camera technique and story telling prowess in the Indian film industry. His death has left behind some daunting shoes to fill.

High Court plays fairy godmother to convict

The Madras High court decided to play fairy-godmother to 42-year-old murder convict Somasundaram by granting him permission to wed his 27-year-old advocate fiancee A Aruna. Somasundaram aka. Somu, a one-time underworld don, accused of at least 15 murders, is serving a life sentence. He was granted a 10-day parole for this happy occasion as a reward for his exemplary behaviour in prison.

The once notorious gangster had been convicted in the murder of former MLA M K Balan in December 2001. He met Aruna, an understudy to advocate Puzhalendhi who represented Somu. The two fell in love and finally tied the knot on Sunday, in a ceremony surrounded by gun-toting policemen and several infamous gangsters all decked up in traditional finery at a temple in MKB Nagar. We understand that love is blind, but in this case, we hope it’s also careful.

Students stone buses, traffic at Nandanam Circle, Chennai

Nandanam college students seem to be in the news for all the wrong reasons. Some students from the college were taken in by the police for pelting stones at the police and disrupting oncoming traffic.

The trouble began when a group of students decided to celebrate 'bus day', and wanted to stop the bus. The police stepped in and restrained them from doing so. But, as soon as the students made it within the campus, some of them started pelting stones at the police. This turned the Nandanam circle into a very risky place for commuters. Traffic had to be diverted to prevent serious injuries. The authorities also arrested some of them.

Magic bullet causes alarm at Chennai Airport

This should take some charm off the use of amulets. A student from Andaman, who had come into the city for an examination, spent hours at the Airport police station today trying to explain his amulet. Hardeep S, was travelling back to the islands by the morning flight, after attending an examination. Unfortunately for him, he was wearing a bullet casing around his neck. This set off alarm bells at the airport. Although the cartridge was a used one, and was called a lucky charm by its wearer, the authorities took no chance and detained Hardeep at the airport. They also sent out a message to his family to come and confirm the story. Till that happens, Hardeep will have to, literally, bite the bullet and hope his luck turns.

112 kids lost and found at Marina beach on Kaanum Pongal day

A day at the Marina, usually, is a day of relaxation. Sadly, not so for cops in the city. The Chennai police struggled to contain the crowds and maintain order on Thursday as crowds swelled to the beach to celebrate Kaanum Pongal. The day saw more than 4000 people come together at the beachside. This massive influx resulted in several children being separated from their families and losing their way in the crowd. Thankfully, officials had already provided name tags for families entering the beach, making it easier to return the kids to their parents. By the end of the day, the police had found and reunited 112 kids with their families. By doing so, the cops might have prevented several Manmohan Desai stories from taking shape in the city.
