We drove to Chennai for a meeting on Monday and to spend a day with family. On Sunday 4th December it was announced that Jayalalitha had suffered a cardiac arrest. So our meeting was cancelled as the worst was expected.
Stocked up on essentials and as expected her demise was announced close to midnight on the 5th. Tuesday her funeral was held at 4.30pm and there was no untoward incident.The end of an era.
Thanks to demonetisation we could pay all the tolls with our debit card, at all the toll booths from Coimbatore to Chennai.
