Pic Talk: Karuna's 14 Year Old Partner On Pause

Kalaignar left an impregnable image on South politics and earned millions of admirers before leaving. While his family is mourning the leader's death, his partner for almost 14 years is choking the onlookers with sorrow. Karunanidhi's powered wheelchair is looking all lost with his death.

Karunanidhi became wheelchair dependent in 2004, when a spinal surgery failed and made him struggle even to stand up. Godman Sathya Sai baba advised him about the powered wheelchair and the special van with hydraulic mechanism to lift the chair in and out of the vehicle, which was then imported. Before that, Karunanidhi had to be physically lifted out of his car and to be placed on regular wheelchair.
