NEW DELHI: Kanimozhi Karunanidhi, who was quizzed on Friday by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the 2G-spectrum allocation scam, differentiates herself from other young dynasty children found in abundance in Parliament through her literary and cultural endeavours.
The 43-year-old daughter of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam party chief M Karunanidhi has published four poetry books in Tamil , following in her father?s footsteps .
Before becoming a towering figure in Dravidian politics , Karunanidhi was a wellknown lyricist, scriptwriter and poet. Kanimozhi is also the brainchild behind the sprawling Chennai cultural festival Chennai Sangamam. But the genteel, soft-spoken politician is also a battle-worn survivor of the turbulence of Dravidian politics and even more tumultuous palace intrigue in Tamil Nadu?s first family.
