When her body was taken from her Poes Garden residence early this morning to Rajaji Hall, it was draped in her trademark green saree, though with a red border.
It was green all the way. When she was sworn in as chief minister for a record sixth time after emerging triumphant in the May 16 assembly polls, she was wearing a green saree.
Also, when she took oath as chief minister for the fifth time on May 23 last year after being acquitted in the disproportionate-assets case by the Karnataka high court, she donned a saree of the same colour.
According to some AIADMK workers, green was Jayalalithaa's lucky and favourite colour.
The AIADMK supremo had chosen to retain the same green colour and embroidered design as her attire while making her first public appearance in nearly eight months when she returned to power after being forced to quit over corruption charges.
Out of 100000 sarees, just one was used for the final journey. Fate of any human being is like that only.
At that time, Jayalalithaa's close aide Sasikala was in the front row dressed in all green.
Some women party workers were also seen in green sarees then.
