Thanks. Subramania Bharati was a great poet of Independence movement and used Tamil to convey to commonmfolk the great ideas, ideals and values of this land of ours which he loved intensely. He succeeded in motivating people for freedom more than any other poet. His poems were simple, clear, direct and convincing. The great idea of total surrender is the theme of this particular song and he reflects Srimad Bhagavad Gita lucidly. Songs like Jaatikal Illayadi Papa etc. are unparallelled in the history of Tamil literature. Kannamma songs are something to be cherished and sung often to get into the spirit of it, a way of life the poet himself led.
