Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
Monday night at around 11.30 pm, the politics in India took a back seat and everyone in unison bid final goodbye to one of the most influential female politician of the country, Jayalalithaa a.k.a Amma.
That sad moment when Jayalalithaa's demise was officially announced, the entire Tamil Nadu stood still. And now that she is gone, people cannot come to terms with the reality.
Her funeral took place Tuesday evening at Marina beach. The interesting bit was that she wasn't cremated. Surprisingly, she was buried to everyone's surprise.
Now everyone in the country wants to know the reason behind her burial. We'll tell you the exact reason behind this.
Keep reading ahead to know the reason.
The first reason given by a government secretary is that Amma was above every religion. He says, “Even most of all the Dravidian leaders, including Periyar, Anna Durai and MGR, were all buried and we do not have a precedent of consigning their body to flames even after death. So, we bury them with sandalwood and rose water.”
MGR, who is also considered to be Amma's god father in politics, is also buried at Marina beach. Dravidian followers believe that the sound of MGR’s watch ticking can still be heard on Marina Beach (Near his memorial).
This will serve as the best place for Amma to rest.
Another reason for not cremating her body is the lack of any blood relative. The daughter of Amma's late brother, Deepa Jayakumar, is the only blood relative of Amma. Shashikala's family will never let her complete Amma's final rituals. But again, this is just a possibility.
