The news of the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa suffering a cardiac arrest and being admitted to ICU has literally masked all other important political developments and media continuously covering this to the exclusion of all other news only shows how she has occupied larger than life stature in the political canvas of India which is a unique phenomenon. Apart from controversies surrounding her what has marked her as a political leader who has her ears to the ground to identify herself fully with the suffering of the poor and down trodden and did a remarkable service to alleviate their suffering. This has no political parallel anywhere and that is the reason as to why she has won the unquestioning loyalty and hearts of millions of her subject who are now tearfully praying for her recovery. Also her political stature rests on the fact that she is well educated and articulate and finely developed political acumen that has helped to play her political card deftly for she derived her strength in keeping the interest of Tamil people supreme.
