Forgotten Hero – Subramanya BharathiAfter posting some threads "Forgotten Hero" based on our freedom fighter those who were not as popular in entire India. I came to know some fact from the responses I got that many of us do not know them. The reason I could find that people predominantly know only those names that are closer to their state. Thus we may not know some of the Heroes name from south, likewise south people too may not know some of the name from north. It is obvious that each state school syllabus will give more important to their state's history. So, if one does not know other states freedom fighter name, we should not misunderstand that.
Today, I have come up with some familiar freedom fighter name from South India like
C. Rajagopalachari, Sarojini Naidu, S.Radhakrishnan, C.Subramaniam, K.Kamaraj. We may know these names which were famous throughout our Indian independence Movement. But, there were other freedom fighters too who did not become famous or known to entire India. In other words, many people do not know him.
However, I have a name Subramanya Bharathi, he was equivalent to Ravindranath Tagore for South India. He too inspired people with his songs and poetry which set things on fire. He was popularly known as "Mahakavi Bharathi". He was born in Ettyapuram in 1882 and had his early education in Tirunelveli and Varanasi. He was also an active member of Indian National Congress and participated in many revolutionary activities. He fought for equality, fought against the cast system and work for the better India and its future.
I would request to other members from south to put some words for him which I could not mentioned. Let us know more about him. Also Please correct me if I went anywhere wrong.
We as a people of India will always bow down to such people who have given their life to create a free India, a free country to breath.
