டாக்டர் செ.அ.வீரபாண்டியன்  (.டாக்டர்.வீ ) ஒரு காலத்தில் திராவிடர் கழகத்தில் தீவிற பற்றாளராக இருந்து பிரச்சார பீரங்கியாகி இருந்தவர். தற்போது கர்நாடக /பண்டைய தமிழிசையில் ஆராய்ச்சி செய்து தனியாக சிந்தனை செய்து ப்ளாக் வைத்திருப்பவர்.  அவருடன் சில சம்பாஷணைகள்

Dear sir,
Late E.V.Ramaswamy Naicker , whatever may be his merits, made politics of scapegoating fashionable by making brahmins scapegoats and whipping boys for any social issue. His obsessive brahmin hatred was so much that he preferred British colonialism to Independent India , which he thought would only be a paradise for brahmins. Such an unbalanced personality is wholly unworthy of being called Periyar. I am surprised that an otherwise sensible person like you continue the EVR துதி by calling him Periyar .


I don't see why anyone should be referred to by titles given by adulatory followers. Anything other than plain names is an attempt to give wholly exaggerated and many times undeserving image to the person in question. Giving tiles to persons, and insisting that persons be referred to by titles given by followers are also an attempt to suppress crtical look at that person's ideas and actions. This is a block to பகுத்தறிவு and Tamils easily fall victim to this tendency. As far honesty, simple life and sacrifices, there were many people in public life as well as private life. As far as EVR is concerned, I am prepared to forget him as a man belonging to another era .

Regards

  1. I agree with you that"why anyone should be referred to by titles given by adulatory followers. Anything other than plain names is an attempt to give wholly exaggerated and many times undeserving image to the person in question. ". In our transition phase of undoing the damages, it shall not weaken our communication. For example, instead of 'kalaingar Karunanidhi', if I write 'Mu.Karunanidhi, in my view, it will weaken the communication in identifying the referred person.

  2. It depends what do you mean by communication; if you are addressing political party in TN, then give all the title for the party leader to 'sell" your ideas to them. On the other hand, if you want to think , coolly and rationally about anyone, drop all the titles. People like Newton or Einstein or Raman were real achievers who really increased the scientific knowledge; still we refer to them only as Newton or Raman (Raman Effect) . The same balance is needed in thinking about human beings or society also. Due to the lack of which Tamilnadu and Tamil is in the position it is today. Adulation has become a substitute for rationality. By dropping all titles of a person, you will be communicating to the wider world அடைமொழி பப்பு உங்க‌ளிடம் வேகாது . Only with a hard headed population , a leader can be held accountable continuously and he/she cannot hold unhealthy psychological hold over people.

    As for me, I neglect all the titles of politicians, or thinkers or anybody

    Regards
