Founder of the Political party the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and endearingly called Anna (elder brother), C N Annadurai became a household name in the post-Independence Tamil Nadu. Brilliant parliamentarian, captivating orator and equally endowed with a facile pen, Anna's charisma was such even his adversaries loved him.

This regional leader blossomed into a national figure. He eventually gave up his demand for a separate Dravida Nadu in the wake of the Chinese aggression. In the 1967 General Elections his party unseated the well-entrenched ruling Congress Party and Anna became the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
