Quotes about Bharathi !

  • கவிதை எழுதுபவன் கவியன்று. கவிதையே வாழ்க்கையாக உடையோன், வாழ்க்கையே கவிதையாகச் செய்தோன், அவனே கவி

    இனிதாவது எங்கும் காணோம்po
    • Among all the languages we know, we do not see anywhere, any as sweet as Tamil.
  • ஜாதி மதங்களைப் பாரோம் -

    • We shall not look at caste or religion, All human beings in this land — whether they be those who preach the vedas or who belong to other castes — are one.
  • Fools! Do you argue, that things ancient ought, on that account, to be true and noble! Fallacies and Falsehoods there were from time immemorial, and dare you argue that because these are ancient these should prevail?
    In ancient times, do you think that there was not the ignorant, and the shallow minded? And why after all should you embrace so fondly a carcass of dead thoughts. Live in the present and shape the future, do not be casting lingering looks to the distant past for the past has passed away, never again to return.
  • The Devil is a Five-headed
    Snake, says the father.
    The son says, Nay, it's a Six-headed one.
And then their hearts burn
with hate for each others —
and they live apart for many years
  • Unbearable becomes the pain in my breast —
    When I think of my people, broken down,
    broken by disease in mind and limb.
On the edge of life they always linger;
For countless are the diseases
Of Ignorance and Hunger.
And on treacherous paths to Slavery
like children blind, they would walk behind
strangers from over the sea.
O, divine Land, blessed by the gods!
O, ancient Mother of Culture and Art!
Thy children today are spineless hordes.

  • எல்லாரும் இந்நாட்டின் மன்னர்கள்

    • Destroy the world if even a single person doesn't have food.
  • காதல் காதல் காதல் இல்லையேல் சாதல் சாதல் சாதல்
    • Love, love, love otherwise die, die, die.
  • ஆயிரம் உண்டிங்கு சாதி,
    எனில் அன்னியர் வந்து புகலென்ன நீதி!
    • We may have thousand of sects; that, however, does not justify a foreign invasion.
    • Variant translation: We may have a thousand problems here; but, that, however does not justify your invasion of our country.
    • Said during the British rule in India
  • Driving away fear, breaking the bonds of servitude,
    Rooting out ignoble thoughts raised the nation,
    That it may reach lofty heights in the world,
    The immortal poet who conquered Time!
All are one caste” proclaimed he,
Defiling discriminations driving away,
Arrived the immortal poet — the cascade of words,
And a flame burst of fiery heroism!
