A sea of humanity bid the five-time CM a tearful farewell. The 94-year-old leader had breathed his last on Tuesday at a Chennai hospital after fighting for life for 11 days.

His mortal remains were interred in a sandalwood casket and lowered into the earth at Marina Beach. As per Karunanidhi's wish, the wordings -- "The person who had worked without rest is resting here" -- was sculpted on the casket.
