The aged Napolean, MK Karunanidhi is waging his last campaign against the axis of evil- the foreigner/brahmin Jayalalitha (has cunningly managed to hoodwink the Dravida masses), the ex-communicated son Alagiri (has vowed to create mischief in Madurai), and the Hindu-Hindi party (has attracted a few Vibhisanas- the infamous Ravana brother who collaborated with Ram to bring about the downfall of the Lankan kingdom).
The Met Office is predicting a final day thunder strike, a direct hit from Bhagwan Rajnikanth riding high on His mighty chariot. The coup-de-grace finagled on behalf of the Hindu Great Man (HGM) seems to be unduly cruel. The common man will now be voting with the assurance that victory (Delhi) is for the man who has God on his side.

Modi, who is scheduled to address a public rally in Chennai on Sunday,
is expected to meet the actor earlier in the evening on arrival from
Hubli either in the airport lounge or at Rajnikanth’s residence at Poes
The encounter could impact the fortunes of the BJP-led
NDA alliance in Tamil Nadu. Though a senior BJP functionary described
the meeting as a “courtesy call”, the photo-op may seem an endorsement
to legions of Rajnikanth fans–the intersection between cinema and
politics in the state goes a long way back.
Before the 2004
election, Rajnikanth had issued a statement in support of AIADMK and
BJP, which was probably the only occasion when the normally reticent and
politically non-committal actor spoke up.
