130th Birth Anniversary Celebrations of Bharathiyar



                                    

 Mahakavi Subramanya Bharathiyar's (a dynamic poet and social reformer) Jayanthi was celebrated today at Kamakoti Hall, Krishna Gana Sabha, T Nagar, Chennai. Speaking on the occasion Sri RBVS Manian, Vice President of VHP said, "Bharathiyar-a great patriot, journalist, poet lived a simple life.  God and Our Motherland are our eyes-this is the maxim of Bharathiyar.  He always insisted that our Country is a Hindu country.  His poems stands out facets of his love for our Motherland and used more words like Hindusthanam, Bharatham (sethamilaadha hindusthanam vendum entru kooradi papa). He had a great vision that even before attaining Independence he sung a song mentioning that we have attained freedom. (aaduvome pallu paduvome, aananda suthandiram adainthuvittom entru..)  Well versed in other languages like English, Hindi, Telugu and French he shaped a great freedom fighter Neelakanda Brahmachari."  Comparing Bharathiyar with Swami Vivekananda, he said "Both have many similarities.  The Birth and death occured exactly after 19 years.  Both lived only for 39 years.  If both these mahans were not born in our country, we cannot imagine how our country would have been now. After meeting Sister Nivedita his iconoclasm stood to recognise the privileges of women"......
