Today is birthday of a man who made me a human and taught me to think as a human. He broke all the myths that I had held about the caste and religion and revealed its ugliness and stupidity. The rigorous service rendered by him to the society uplifted many people like me and was a ladder for everyone to crusade against social evils. His name itself was allergic to religion, chauvinism, oppression and other such stupidities. He was a Rebel and a Revolutionary and his principles will live here as long as human traces can be found in this world. I bestow my salute to him for making me and many others to live a life as a Human. Thanks to that Great Grand Father, the White Bearded Rascal. He was called and will continue to be called as Periyar. He gave a new dimension for Atheism. This is a small tribute for him by sharing his Name and Activity in this broad minded arena.
