December 11 1882 was the birth year of Subrahamania Bharathi and today is 118th birthday today. I was just googling to find how about Bharathiar birthday celebrations but unfortunately could not find good number. Has this Mahakavi expected this to happen whilst he composed the lyrics of ‘Nallathor Veenai Seythu …’ poem. Listen to it here.
On his birthday we would recall his ambitions for a sweeter greener India and swear to work towards it. Here is a small melodius poem penned by him in the sweet voice of Bombay Jayasree.
