This is the day to remember one of most talented and optimistic poet of india.That is Bharathi,even the name gives a spirit,it signifies the power,bravery and pride. He was not awarded with that name by birth but deserved it by the poems he delivered most of which inspired the nation. The reason why we call him as an optimist is that unlike most of indian poets “he used the respect other languages and showed his interest to learn them”.you might question me about his bravery ,i do have answer for that.
Now a days it might be easy for us to speak about woman empowerment and caste system but it’s not that much easy for someone to speak about these during the beginning of 20th century.
He was seen as a “terrorist” by those people.yes,he is a terrorist who fought for welfare of nation.
Let me stop this boring intro about a man who overthrew boredom from people with his poems. Here we can see about few of the most amazing poems written by him.
PURE WORSHIP காக்கை சிறகினிலே நந்தலாலா - நின்றன் கரிய நிறம் தோன்றுதையே நந்தலாலா பார்க்கும் மரங்களெல்லாம் நந்தலாலா - நின்றன் பச்சை நிறம் தோன்றுதையே நந்தலாலா கேட்கும் ஒளியில் எல்லாம் நந்தலாலா - நின்றன் கீதம் இசைக்குதடா நந்தலாலா தீக்குள் விரலை வைத்தால் நந்தலாலா - நின்னை தீண்டும் இன்பம் தோன்றுதடா நந்தலாலா --பாரதியார்
Most people might find it difficult to read this,some because they don’t know tamil and others who don’t know how to read the tamil of bharathi.let us explain.
No one in this world can show devotion towards god like he did. It’s something beyond words to explain,this poem is the example for this.
The poem is as follows,when i see the dark colour in the feathers of a crow all i see is you god,when i see the heavenly green colour of trees all i see is you.In this lines he wants to make sure that god has no colour,no form he is everywhere. In the third line he says whenever i hear the music let it be of any form,any genre,let it be from an award winning singer or a beggar,let it be a lion’s roar or a morning melody by nightingale,all i hear is simply your name. In this he says that god almighty doesn’t have a name,it’s us who name him. Those final lines are the best of all,In this he portrays that even when i burn my hands in the glorious fire what i feel is you oh my lord. The inner meaning of this is you should praise the god when he tests you the most,he gives the chance for you to face those.
About bharathi’s life by BHARATHI
தேடிச் சோறுநிதந் தின்று - பல சின்னஞ் சிறுகதைகள் பேசி - மனம் வாடித் துன்பமிக உழன்று - பிறர் வாடப் பலசெயல்கள் செய்து - நரை கூடிக் கிழப்பருவ மெய்தி - கொடுங் கூற்றுக் கிரையெனப்பின் மாயும் - பல வேடிக்கை மனிதரைப் போலே - நான் வீழ்வே னென்று நினைத் தாயோ? --பாரதியார்
In this he argues with the god almighty about his life the poem conveys as follows. Do you think me as someone who will merely live to eat daily,someone who will speak all the useless stuff,someone will suffer due to agony and pain,someone who makes others to suffer a lot,or that someone who turns grey and die. I’m not gonna live or die so. He made it true,he lived like a warrior and died at very young age. The same fire in his heart consumed him finally. Not only the earthly form but also his endless knowledge was burnt.
