The full transcript of the letter (Translated from Tamil to English):

"You used to tell me the place where ever you go. Now, where have you gone without telling me? Where did you go leaving us all in the lurch? You had said 33 years back, what should be written in your memorial- Here lies the person who worked untiringly throughout his life. Have you now decided that you did enough for Tamil society."
