Rajnikant is a chair professor of symbology at IIRS. He has specialized in early Dravidian, Sangam Architecture and Literature. He is currently working on the influence of Tamil Sangam era in Christianity. He is attributed to unearthing Tamil Symbols named ‘Baasha’[swirl your finger and denote one, means The power of one is equivalent to 100 times] and ‘Baba’[fold the middle and the index finger and keep the forefingers raised, a sign of spiritual enlightment in TamilNadu].
Vetra-Vel Murugan is a 68 year old NIO scientist, but comes from a very religious family. He is the Poojari of the 7th Century Mahabalipuram Shore Temple. Velmurugan is found Murdered at the Temple Sanctum Sanctorium. On his chest is branded the Symbol ‘IMILATI’. After googling and Yahoo Deep searching in the internet , Director of NIO, Dr. Maruthamalai Kohlan contacts Rajnikant, who is an expert in study of ‘IMILATI’.
What Rajni sees is an authentic symbol, IMILATI. He reads it with shock...I-MILAT-I.....MILAT....anagram for TAMIL. He Knows that ‘IMILATI’ is an intellectual group that has been dormant for years. The IMILATI stand for a one tamil world. The origin of IMILATI dates back to First Century B.C in a place called Poompuhar in Tamilnadu, on the banks of cauvery. Thiru-Valluvar, the sage poet who wrote the sacred verses [Thiru-Kural]. Thiru meaning ‘Sacred’, and Kural meaning ‘Voice’. The 3rde Century B.C to the 3rd century A.C was the golden ‘era’ of Tamil-called ‘Sangam’ Era. The Era saw the emergence of a Tamil order in every field of literature, arts, mathematics, geography, and philosophy. The ‘IMILATI’ was a select group of intellectuals who hold the ‘secrets’ to ‘the origins of human language’. They embedded themselves in the corridors of power [ministers, advisors, and Brahmins in the court of Pandya and Chola Kings] and still continue to have considerable influence in Tamil Politics [Dravidian Parties]. It is mandatory for school children in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu to study Thirukkural right from their inception into the curriculum. Their influence has spread far and wide and have considerable support in Sri-Lanka. It is believed that the ‘ELLAM’ movement in Jaffna province is supported and funded by IMILATI- the Tamil Tigers.
Many stalwarts like Avaiyar, Kamban, Valluvar, Periyar, and current Dravidian exponents like Cho, Vaiko are said to be members of the IMILATI [A type of Free Mason Organisation]. It is rumoured that the current members of the IMILATI hold their meetings at Guna caves in kodaikanal, which is closed for public from 2003. IMILATI are not known to be terrorists, but they are passionate about their cause for Tamil world. They believed that all languages owe allegiance to Tamil and hence Tamil is the World Language-The Mother of all Languages. The IMILATI have tried to convey this message through works of art, Literature, and architecture. Come to believe of it, Americans were once Tamilians. The IMILATI have impregnated ‘Silicon Valley’ and ‘Bay’ Area. Many world-class software engineers are members of IMILATI. It is believed that Microsoft Windows is an IMILATI product. Tamil was the first Indian language incorporated into MS products. It is believed that the funds from IMILATI software engineers in US are used to fund their cause. The rise of ELAM state in neighboring srilanka is through IMILATI influence.
Rajni finds that the IMILATI has resurfaced through this murderous act. But what shocks Rajni is the revelation of Director of NIO, Dr. Maruthamalai Kohlan. Dr. Kohlan says that the murdered Poojari of the Temple was also a scientist at NIO. He was working on mineral nuclear physics, a technology that could generate nuclear power equivalent to 1000 Hiroshima Bombs from One atom of Titanium. Titanium deposits are in abundance along the eastern Indian coast, especially mahabalipuram. Experiments have shown that natural titanium becomes very radioactive after it is bombarded with deuterons, emitting mainly positrons and hard gamma rays.
Rajni discovers that the IMILATI have appropriated this Titanium technology. His reasoning is that Titanium is a Tamil Mineral with chemical Symbol Ti, both appearing in Tamil.[Titanium was named Thittam by IMILATI..the last two letters TI stand for Titanium]. Titanium , in latin means Titan, the son of Gia [Mother Earth]...IMILATI believe that TamilNadu is blessed with her son-Ti. Thittam in Tamil also means- ‘Plot’. Rajni alarmingly puts the strings together. Thittam-The plot to IMILATI realizing their ultimate power of earth..bestowed on her son..the titanium laden beaches along the east coast of Tamil Nadu..... using the secret weapon.
