Pongal is one of the main festival of Hindu, Pongal has cosmic importance: it denote the start of Uttarayana, the Sun’s development northward for a six month period. In Hinduism, Uttarayana is recognized auspicious, rather than Dakshinaayana, or the southern development of the sun. Immensely vital occasions are planned throughout this period.

Mahakavi Bharathiyar

Mahakavi Barathiyar Poster

Chinnaswami Subramania Bharathi was an Indian writer, poet, journalist, Indian independence activist and social reformer from Tamil Nadu, India. Popularly known as Mahakavi Bharathiyar, he is a pioneer of modern Tamil poetry.

One of my favourite poetry on discrimination based on Colour

Vellai nirathoru poonai – engal Veettil valarudu kandeer

Pillaigal petradu poonai – avai Perukku oru niramagum

Saambal niram oru kutti – karun Chaandu niram oru kutti

Paambu niram oru kutti – vellai Paalin niram our kutti

Enda niram irundalum – avai Yaavum ore taram andro

Inda niram siridendrum – idu Etram endru sollalamo?

The basic philosophy of the above given bharathi’s poet is very simple, it conveys the message that we are diversed by many factors like language, religion, beliefs and so on, above all we must not forget that we all are human, that is the only thing which unites the whole universe, where there is no humanity there is no good culture. No one is superior and no one is inferior.

Pure genius! Wish he were alive today.
