'Shall I address you as Appa at least now': MK Stalin pens emotional letter
DMK working president MK Stalin tweeted a handwritten tribute for his late father and DMK President M Karunanidhi.

I used to address you as ‘thalaivare’ (leader) most of the time in my life than calling you as ‘appa’. At least now, shall I address you once as ‘appa’?"
