Jayalalithaa had named three nurses who were incharge of taking care of her “King Kong”



She made an effort to eat whenever the nurses were around


Jayalalithaa wanted to get better and thus used to eat and follow whatever the doctors used to say rigorously


Her cook used to prepare food for her during her stay at the hospital, which included – potato curry, rice, upma, pongal


Jayalalithaa used to share skincare tips with the nurses


She used to ask all the nurses to take care of themselves despite their busy schedule


Sometimes, she used to ‘order’ nurses to correct/change their hairstyles


Jayalalithaa did not like Apollo hospital’s coffee. She once told the staff to come home with her so that she could let them have the best tea from Kodainadu


She used to watch the news on TV and smile

She had promised the staff that she would take them to the TN assembly after getting better


Doctors also recollected how positive and spirited she was, even during those tough days at the hospital.
