A 1000 page book on the life of Veluppillai Prabhakaran,leader of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) is to be released in January 2012
The book “Prabhakaran: Thamizhar Ezhuchiyin Vadivam” (Prabhakaran; Personification of Tamil resurgence) is written by Pazhaniyappan Nedumaran.
Nedumaran a well-known TamilNadu politician & leader of the “Thamizhar Thesiya Iyakkam” (Tamil National Movement) is supportive of the LTTE
Nedumaran allowed LTTE to stay&train in his farm in Madurai in the late 70’s &early 80’s during the early days of the Tamil militancy
Nedumaran closely interacted with the LTTE leader during the time when the LTTE leader stayed in Tamil Nadu & established close rapport
Nedumaran also visited Sri Lanka 4 times both openly & clandestinely & interacted with Prabhakaran & other senior LTTE leaders in the North & East
Nedumaran has written books on the LTTE & Prabhakaran but this one will be his “Magnum opus” recollecting his 30 years relationship with both
A sgnificant feature of the book will be the inclusion of of hitherto unpublished correspondence between Nedumaran & Prabhakaran in the past
Nedumaran will also reveal several facts &intersting anecdotes about Prabhakaran & other LTTE leaders unavailable in the public domain so far
The book will also include a vast array of photographs in colour & black & white that have not been publicly available in the past
The 1000 page book is priced 800 Indian rupees or 20 US dollars & will be released in a book launch scheduled for “Thaipongal day” in 2012
As Nedumaran is one who says Prabhakaran is alive there is wide speculation whether the new book will acknowledge the LTTE chief’s death.
