Heartiest congratulations on the occasion of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. In history, during this month, we remember Subramania Bharati on his death anniversary on 12th September.

A born poet and a patriot, Subramania Bharati was greatly moved by the Indian struggle for independence. A Tamil pundit, he was also accomplished in Sanskrit and Hindi. Editor of Tamil India and English Bala Bharati, Subramania was greatly influenced by Sri Aurobindo and VVS Iyer, and later by Mahatma Gandhi. To symbolize the spirit of national unity he adopted the turban as popularly worn by the Sikhs of Northern India. He was arrested for his nationalistic activities. He inspired people with his poems such as PanchaliSapatam which was an allegory of Bharat Mata.

Subramania Bharati is known as Mahakavi Bharthi. He composed innumerable nationalistic poems and wrote articles, uniting the Indians and raising the thirst for freedom. He died in 1921.
