What is behind the name Stalin?
Post-independence of India, many regions of the nation still had a Marxist inclination of thoughts and they believed Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin as the heroes of the era. As M. Krunanidhi himself has confessed in some of his interviews that he had a soft corner for the Marxist ideology, even before the Periyar movement in Tamil Nadu.
Karunanidhi while addressing a meeting kept paying condolences to the soviet leader Joseph Stalin, who had died just four days after his third son was born, decided to keep his son’s name after Stalin, as tribute to the soviet era leader.
