PM Modi pays tributes to Tamil poet Subramania Bharathi on his birth anniversary

Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tributes to poet-reformer Subramania Bharathi on his 137th birth anniversary on Wednesday, describing him as a symbol of patriotism. In a tweet, the prime minister said "Mahakavi Bharathiar" was a "symbol of patriotism, social reform, poetic genius and indomitable sprit of freedom and fearlessness".

He said Bharathi's  thoughts and works continued to motivate us all. Bharathi was a Tamil writer, poet, journalist and an independence activist. Popularly known as "Mahakavi Bharathi", he was a pioneer of modern Tamil poetry and is considered as one of the greatest Tamil literary figures ever.

He was born in 1882 in Ettaiyapuram.
