Recently, a controversy has erupted in the political circles about the colour of the robe of Thiruvalluvar.

This gave me an opportunity to go back to my archives of photographers from the Thiruvalluvar temple, Mylapore.

As the temple was under renovation the idols were wrapped up in plastic sheets. As the weather-beaten blue sheets were crumbling the idols emerged hesitantly.

The next controversy could be about his beard or tuft.
