I beg to disagree.  As unacceptable to a group of people the comparison to Dr. Ambedkar might have been, for Ilaiyaraaja that comparison may be how he sees it.  Why is it expected that Ilaiyaraaja or anyone else should have the same opinions as people who are complaining.  If you dont like his opinion, you have the right to not read the book or the article or not listen to his music.  But you cannot deny Ilaiyaraaja's right to express his opinion.  Its OK for people to express that you didnt agree with his position. but for the group to malign Ilaiyaraaja the way they trended something on Twitter against Ilaiyaraaja or the language and content of how some of the detractors have spoken against him is shameful.  Rather than a rational discussion, they want to intimidate people t submission. If you had actually read the foreward, it is very well written and he provides his basis of comparison that is all rationally laid out unlike the emotional outburst of his detractors.  There are so many comparisons or statements that Ilaiyaraaja's detractors have made that many of us dont agree with but we just ignore them and move on. I dont want to make this a political debate as to whose opinion is legitimate but I wanted to express my sadness of such intolerance and vitriol exhibited in TN with regard to this matter.

talking of "intimidating to submission" there are lot of hints being thrown around which suggests IR himself was armtwisted to make this comparison becausse of some tax issues, who knows..hope thats not the case. IR has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately(starting from the unnecessary Prasad studios issue, royalty issues etc..))..hope he is in the news soon for a private album effort or for scoring some good music for Vetrimaaran's next film..

Baseless rumors that were one of may ranging from tax issue to being promised a pay off of an MP role, role of President or Bharat Ratna.  Rationally none of these rumors make sense - for BJP to do all that for Ilaiyaraaja now does not make sense.  Its not as if he is that popular now that his endorsement would significantly improve BJP's cause in TN.  From Ilaiyaraaja's perspective, he has shown forever, he is someone who will not toe anyone's line despite the costs to him and his career.  He could have towed to Balachandar, Bharatiraja, Maniratnam, Rajinikanth or Vairamuthu etc. to shore up movies from those who abandoned him.  He has never done that and is not in his DNA if you had followed him from his entry.  I cannot understand why it is so inconceivable for people to recognize that IR can genuinely be impressed with India's PM.   And it maybe not as rare a phenomenon even in TN where the media might try to paint a picture to the opposite.

being impressed is one thing, comparing him to an icon like Ambedkar is another.

if a book was written on Deva, and lets say Rahman was writing the foreword and he says he is very impressed withb Deva and compares him and puts him on the same level as IR, would you agree to it? :-) will you just dismiss it as his opinion? No, you would pounce on him.

Any official news if Ilaiyaraaja will have concerts in the USA this year. Saw a message on YouTube of an upcoming concert at Everett, WA (July 2, 2022) called 'Rock With Raaja'.
