From a very young age, he was musically and poetically inclined. Bharathi resided in Pondicherry for sometime to escape the wrath of the British imperialists. Inhe released his first book of poems, Songs of Freedom, which was not only a literary achievement but also a strong call for freedom from foreign rule.
Bharati lost his mother at the age of five and was brought up by his father who wanted him to learn English, excel in arithmetic, and become an engineer.
Bharati died on September 12,about two months after he was attacked by an elephant at the Triplicane temple in Madras. The following year,Bharati met Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
Naoroji dissolved the Congress, has made amends for the deficiencies of his opening speech. The noted poets gathered at the court were amazed at his recitation.
The British tried to suppress Bharati's output by stopping remittances and letters to the papers.
They included Bharathi, Aurobindo and V. Krishnaswami Aiyar. Sundaram Subramaniya Bharathiyar was a poet, freedom fighter and social reformer from Tamil Nadu.
Today, more than 80 years later, Subaramanya Bharathy stands as an undying symbol of Indian freedom and a vibrant Tamil nationalism.
At the same time he also edited the English newspaper 'Bala Bharatham'.
