In a video which has now gone viral, Thambi Tamilarasan, reporter, poses the question, “Do you cook?” The smiling Kanimozhi answers him with another question. “Why is that you don’t ask male politicians this question?” she asks.

The anchor then goes on to defend himself by saying that she is a political leader and a political leader. MP Kanimozhi then asks why he never asked the same question to her father late M Karunanidhi who was the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Thambi can be seen smiling meekly and asks her if she ever cooked her father’s favourite dish fish curry for him.  “Dad loved only the fish curry made by mum. But I have, in the past, cooked for him and he liked it. But then all fathers like their daughters’ cooking,”  she answers.

One Twitter user said, “Read Periyar , Read Ambedkar. Your whole thought process will change for good. All the chains that were holding you will be gone. Kanimozhi is the best example as she kills the interviewer with a subtle smile for his patriarchal question.”
