Subramania Bharathi

A feature on the life and compositions of a visionary far ahead of his times.

Subramania Bharathi was a man of many parts and also a visionary in the true sense of the word. Most of his literary and musical output was a result of his commitment to India's independence and to social upliftment and change. Bharathi's poems are mostly songs to be sung, and he himself tuned them to appeal to common folk. His patriotic songs and the verses and songs that he wrote visualizing Krishna in various roles, have over the years become very popular. Almost all of them have been retuned to suit different settings and purposes. This programme features a few of these ever-popular songs and compositions of Subramania Bharati in connection with his death anniversary on September 11.
