Last evening there was a function to mark the 81st Birthday of Dr.Sivaji Ganesan. In this , as is the practice annually a Special day Cover was released to honour the great Music director K.V.Mahadevan. The Sivaji Award was also presented to
Sri . Muthappa - Make up artiste , who worked in the film "Parasakthi".
and Sri S.P.Balasubramanyam.
Curiously, my brother Bharat ( P.S.Raman) , who is currently the Advocate general of the state was the chief guest and as is the practice since 2000 , when we started this, I was the Compere.
This was covered by a few dailies and I am attaching the Photograph as it appeared.The Sivaji Award given each year on his Birthday also consists of a cheque for Rs 50,000. Several people have been given this award. So too have many famous film personalities been honoured with a special cover - either on 1st October or on 21st July to mark the anniversary of the passing away of the great thespian.I will be blogging later with images and the list of people so honoured later.
