Year 2005/2006 maybe.
Veezhamattom. An album for Srilankan Tamizhs that I had sung in, as had Manikka Vinayagam sir.
I dont remember if it was a book or an album release or both now; the performances and launch happened in Switzerland in (Bern / Zurich maybe)
We sang. We went to Switzerland. We performed. Everyone left. Only my mother and I were asked to stay back. The organizer(I dont remember his name) asked me to visit Vairamuthu sir in a hotel in Lucerne.
I asked why. He told me to cooperate. I refused. We demanded to be sent back to India. He said ‘You wont have a career!’ My mother and I both put our foot down, career vendam mannum vendam. Demanded an earlier flight to India and came back.
3, maybe 4 years ago, he had a book release function & asked me to sing Tamizh Thaai vaazhthu. I said I would be unable to. He in turn responded ‘I ll tell (a politician) you spoke ill of him on stage, yelled at me and kept the phone down I bawled. My parents in law consoled me
Then had the courage to call his manager back & told him ‘I ll go and tell the same politician you re lying because I have NEVER given a political speech and HE will trust ME. This for refusing to sing. And you ask why victims dont name him?! To hell with those of you who do.
The staff at Vairamuthu sir’s office KNOW. His closest confidants know. They are also his enablers. Vairamuthu sir, you KNOW what you did. With due respect your #TimesUp I dont care if I ever sing or dub in this industry ever. This is my story. And this is the truth.
I am glad I spoke up NOW. Not 5 years early. Not 10 years later but NOW. Some of us die with the stories. Many of us women still will. All of you have heard 0.2% of the stories. Look around. Ask around. You ll know. Dont. Ask. Why. Now. Why. Not. Earlier.
Why we invited @Vairamuthu to my wedding?
Because I DIDNT TELL RAHUL OR MY INLAWS then. I told them later and they didn’t love me one bit less
I HAD to invite him because I invited every industry veteran, his other family members; not inviting him would mean having to explain why

அறியப்பட்டவர்கள் மீது அவதூறு பரப்பும் அநாகரிகம் நாடெங்கும் இப்போது நாகரிகமாகி வருகிறது. அண்மைக்காலமாக நான் தொடர்ச்சியாக அவமானப்படுத்தப்பட்டு வருகிறேன்; அவற்றுள் இதுவும் ஒன்று. உண்மைக்குப் புறம்பான எதையும் நான் பொருட்படுத்துவதில்லை; உண்மையைக் காலம் சொல்லும்.
Chinmayi Sripaada response on Vairamuthu Tweet:
To EVERYONE who will debate about me on channels – whether you slut shame me or call me names
Vairamuthu is a sexual predator. I will take this to my grave.
And to Tamil channels who wouldnt even carry a ticker OR report, wanting a byte *after* Delhi news channels.
