    I’ve not been inside of the home, as it was closed at the time i clicked. But it clearly states visitor hours at the entrance, hence i presume its open for Public to step inside.

    Indeed Bharathi was a great poet, freedom fighter, social activist and above all a person with lateral thinking. Naturally, what he got back from the society was the tag of a ‘madcap’while he was alive. Now after his death, he is remembered for his songs.

    praddy – Yes it is open to public and there is a library inside.

    Grew up in T.P Koil Street, brings up good memories…

    Chennaichilddoc – He is indeed a great poet, but his views on women liberty and caste are what impress me the most…
