MY FAVOURITE "BHARATHIYAR KAVITHAIGAL"
Bharathi,the pride of tamil nadu, he was 'the mother Therasa' to TN-although born in a upper most caste, served for poor( the untouchables and indians as well) and died desolate. He was the great poet of all encomium, a chaste person (unfortunately not a character of most of the poets), GOD loving (rather god fearing, because god is every thing for him-'He' is his child, friend, lover - what not else). He is audacious, lion-hearted published his thoughts valiently. To my knowledge he is the only person next to Ghandi, who candidly unveiled his life. HE (only!) DESERVES the phrase - 'THE PRIDE OF TAMIL NADU'. :-)
