Subramanya Bharathi – The Patriotic Poet

Picture

Today is the Birthday of  Chinnaswami Subramanya Bharathi  , Tamil writer, poet, journalist, Indian independence activist and social reformer from Tamil Nadu . He is considered to be one of the greatest Tamil poets of the modern era.Most of his works were on religious, political and social themes. Songs penned by Bharathi have been widely used in Tamil films and Carnatic Music concert platforms.

Here comes an Poem penned by the Poet regarding the caste .
“ஜாதி மதங்களைப் பாரோம் –
உயர் ஜன்மம்இத் தேசத்தில் எய்தின ராயின்
வேதிய ராயினும் ஒன்றே –
அன்றி வேறு குலத்தின ராயினும் ஒன்றே”
Means , “We shall not look at caste or religion. All human beings in this land — whether they be those who preach the vedas or who belong to other castes — are one”.


  Born in Ettayapuram at 1882, Subramanya Bharathi studied in Tirunelveli and worked as a journalist with many newspapers.Bharathi was also an active member of the Indian National Congress. In 1908, an arrest warrant was issued against Bharathi by the government of British India for his revolutionary activities forcing him to flee to Pondicherry where he lived until 1918.

He was struck by an elephant at Parthasarathy temple, Triplicane, Chennai, whom he used to feed regularly. A few months later his health deteriorated and he died on September 11, 1921. Team WI Prays for the patriotic Poet on his birthday.
