“In his struggling early days as a movie lyricist, poet Paddukoddai Kalyanasundaram faced tough times. He approached a movie company repeatedly, soliciting opportunity to write lyrics. That movie company’s mogul ignored the poet repeatedly, with a scowl, ‘Come tomorrow; Come tomorrow’. The poet was angered, and he looked around and located an empty cigarette packet. Kalyanasundaram ripped it open, and wrote an impromptu derisive curse verse (aram song).
