KAMARAJAR REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE AWARD OF ‘DOCTOR’:
When Kamarajar was ruling Tamilnadu, as the Chief Minister, he brought wonderful changes in the educational front. In no other state, such changes were not brought. The chief minister Kamarajar was instrumental for all these things. All the states were observing this and tried to implement it in their states. One of the universities in Gujarat decided to honor him by awarding a ‘Doctor’ Degree to him. The authorities approached him and informed about this to him.
But Kamarajar did not accept their offer, telling that he did not do any deed worth to receive the award. He further told them to find out the fittest persons for the awards and give to them, because there are many Scholars, Scientists and Writers and Genius persons. Thus, he always wanted to render performances and never liked to expose it to others.
