celebrating the birth anniversary of Mahakavi Subramanya Barathiyar

11th Dec marks the  birth anniversary of  Desiya Kavi Subramanya Bharathi, considered the icon of Tamil pride. A great poet, prolific writer, positive thinker, man with progressive ideals, great visionary, genius ~ man who thought much ahead of his times, the National poet lived only for 39 years. 

Vanavil Panpattu Maiyam  is organizing the poet’s  Birthday as Four day celebrations to culminate on 11th Dec 2013-  at the very place where he resided in Thiruvallikkeni, Thulasinga Perumal Kovil Street, just opposite Lord Azhagiya Singar sannathi.

This morning the programme was off to a grand start with ‘Murrothal’ – a joint singing of Bharathi’s poem – first by group headed by Sri Satishkumar, then by Ila Ganesan of BJP, Mrs Logeswari, Dr Swarnamalya Ganesh, Dr Va Ve Subramaniam,  Mrs Shobhana Ravi and Sri Veeramani Raju.

SYMA group (and Yours Truly) accompanied Prof Va Ve Su in singing verses of Bharathi’s kannamma songs.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar.
