Bharathidhasan Birth Day - April 29, 2017
Kanakasabai Subburathinam, popularly called Bharathidasan was a 20th-century Tamil poet and rationalist whose literary works handled mostly socio-political issues. His writings served as a catalyst for the growth of the Dravidian movement in Tamil Nadu. In addition to poetry, his views found expression in other forms such as plays, film scripts, short stories and essays. He was mentored by a teacher called Bharathi Mudaliar,after whom he called himself "Bharathidasan"(there is a wrong myth that his name came from Subramaniya bharathiyar). The Government of Puducherry union territory has adopted the song of invocation to Goddess Tamil written by Bharathidasan as the state song of Puducherry.
