Will the son rise?

It seems the speculation on Stalin succeeding MK will soon become reality. MK made noises to the same effect in his speech at the DMK youth conference.

But will son 'rise' and rule the way his father did? Stalin already faces his brother's ire. And so he must not forget that in politics, perceptions play a role that must never be underestimated. Stalin's actions hence on will dictate the way he is perceived, especially since the whole of Tamil Nadu will follow his every move. And should he want to be perceived the way his father was, it would call for the very same tact and unpredictability that his father brandished.
