The Tamil Nadu Government has released 14 announcements towards the Death Centenary of freedom fighter and poet Subramania Bharathi. Chief Minister M. K. Stalin has said that his memorial day will be called Mahakavi Day.

Murugan praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for setting up a chair on Subramania Bharathi in Benaras Hindu University and said that it was a matter of pride for Tamil Nadu. The day was comemmorated throughout the districts.

The great poet Subramania Bharathi was born at Ettaiyapuram in Tuticorin district on December 11, 1882 and passed away on 11th September 1921 at Chennai. The 39-year old  Bharathi’s passionate writings ignited a thirst among the youth to join the freedom movement. It goes without saying that Bharathiyar stood for equality of women and also slammed discrimination  on basis of caste.

He sang about Nature, motherland and freedom movement which jittered the British. In memory of this great poet, the State Government will release and distribute a book consisting of his essays and poems to 37 lakh students. The Government also proposes to set up an international Tamil movement Paarengum Bharathi. The State Government has also pledged to maintain the house of Bharathiyar at Kasi in Uttar Pradesh.
