Durga Pooja Celebrations _ (2)
« on: September 30, 2008, 06:49:31 PM »
Subrahmanya Bharati is a great Tamil poet, who lived in self-
exile in Pondicherry, which was under French control, to escape
the British arrest.  He is a great nationalist poet, who considered
India as Bharata Mata.  He is also a devi worshipper, who sang
melodious songs on Durga, Lakshmi and Sarasvati. His songs
are quite famous even today and is sung by ladies during Durga
Pooja in Tamil Nadu.  Bharati met Bhagavan in the Hills once
and spent some time with Him and prayed for country's freedom!
Bharati died a premature death at the age of 39, in Madras,
after British lifted charges against him.

Arunachala Siva.
