Bharathi-Award

As part of celebrating Subramaniya Bharathi’s 131st birth anniversary, Vidiyal Charitable Trust presented Bharathi Awards to the achievers of various fields recently. Vidiyal Charitable Trust is an organisation working to spread cultural and social values.

The achievers who were bestowed with the award, are Dr Silamboli S Sellappan, historian S Muthiah, writer Prapanchan, children’s litterateur Sella Ganapathy, writer Dr Tirupur Krishnan, villupaattu fame Subbu Arumugam, vocalist Nisha Rajagopalan, swimmer Jeyaveena and also for social service organisation Seva Sadan’s Prema C Kumar.

Speaking at the function, Tirupur Krishnan, Editor, Amudha Surabhi magazine, said, “We can divide Bharathi’s literatures as two types — literatures made by Bharathi and literatures on Bharathi. Today, literature written about Bharathi, is more than the literature written by Bharathi himself. He is considered as the Mahakavi as his writings are relevant even in today’s scenario. We should be thankful for great scholars and litterateurs like Vallikkannan and Narana Durai Kannan for taking efforts to nationalise Bharathi’s songs”. He went on to talk about the various facets of Bharathi’s writings and said that it was a gift.

Former Supreme Court judge S Natarajan, former Madras High Court judge S Jegadeesan and R Perumalsamy, Vice-Chancellor, Noorul Islam University, were also present on the occasion.
