of Tamil Poet Subramania Bharati installed in Mumbai
A bronze statue of noted Tamil poet and freedom fighter late Subramania Bharathi, was installed in Mumbai by well known scientist Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, on Saturday. December 16 at the Bharathi Medical Research Foundation building, Chunabatti. The statue which is 30 inches in height and claimed to be the first of its kind in the city, was installed on a marble pedestal. It was made in Mumbai by the well known sculptor Satish Wagh at Maim. This function was a part of the two day Bharathi festival conducted by the Bharathi Kala Manram. Dr. Chidambaram, former Chairman - Atomic Energy Commission and Bharathi Kavalar Dr. K. Ramamoorty from Chennai were the Guests of Honour.
Bharathi employed the medium of poetry to awaken the dormant Society and directed the people's minds towards liberty and social progress. In his poems which were naturally inhis mother-tongue Tamil he eulogised all the languages of Mother India and invoked the unity of all her children so that she could he free from alien bondage. He was fierce in his plea for equal rights for all, irrespective of class or sex and creed for universal education and exhorted the youth to come out in open and shoulder greater responsibilities in building better society to live in.
Bharathi Kala Manram, a literary and cultural organisation in the City was set up two decades ago to spread the teachings of Subramania Bharathi. Mr. V.Ranganathan, a founder member of the Manram, said, the institution has carved for itself a prominent place in the service of the citizens of this great Metropolis in the fields of art, culture and literary activities, It organises regular annual Bharathi festivals and also invites noted writers, scholars and patriots to speak on various literary and cultural subjects and conducts essay writing and elocution competitions on topics related to Bharathi's ideals and teachings, he said.
