A Song to the Mahakavi

Bharathi was not just for Tamil alone; he was, in my opinion, the modern language artist who easily had more profound impact in his mother tongue; a very small ode to him on his b’day!

Some songs capture attention,
Some songs cultivate noble thoughts,
Some songs lift the lid of dearth,
Some songs bring tears to the eyes,
Some songs give joy infinite,
Some songs are meant to be sung forever…

Like songs so are people,
Some will be champions of their time,
Leaders remain a motivation for others,
Legends will be remembered forever,
Praises of heroes sung – long after they are gone,
But only a destined few are born to be a ‘Mahakavi’!
