National Seminar on “Subramania Bharathi” …. Concept note….. last date for sending paper is 20th November, 2017

Theme Note on
Subramania Bharathi: The National Poet, Prose-writer, Social Revolutionary and Feminist
There are few nations which can boast of a culture which is ancient, rich and timeless. What sustains India is its culture. Without being rigid, it is flexible, adapting itself to the changes of various kinds that are taking place in society. At the same time, it retains its core, which passes through the manifold changes. It is necessary to point out that, while the core remains the same changes take place only in the periphery. The Tamil culture is one of the ancient cultures of the world. It antiquity, depth and comprehensives cannot be measure by time. Scholars are of the view that the beginning of the culture of the Tamils may be assigned to the 5th BC. It has three important periods: the Sangham Period, the Bhakti period and the Contemporary period. Tamil language has three important components: Iyail (literature), Isai (music) and Natakam (dance). Sage Valmiki declares: “The Mother and the Motherland are superior to the heaven”. The Tamil poet Subramania Bharathi, echoed it in his inimitable way. The Indian poets have equated their mother tongue with the mother and the motherland and Bharathi is not an exception to this.
The poet has always been a witness reflector of man’s political, social and economic history. The poet is truly a drasta, the seer. Mahakavi Subramania Bharathi is a poet, prose writer, nationalist, reformer and a feminist. He was born on 11th December 1882 in Tirunelveli. He was honoured by the title “Bharathi” when he was young. He joined the Tamil Daily, Swadesamithran as sub-editor in the year 1904. He was inspired by thinkers like Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Gandhi. He has translated many of their writings in Tamil. He became the editor of the Nationalist paper, India in 1906. Like Sri Aurobindo, he became a self-exile in Pondicherry till 1919. Bharathi made effective use of India and other journals and dailies to publish number of essays, which reflected the social and political life of the people, thus contributing to the field of knowledge as well as the Tamil language and literature. His writings encompass a vast domain, viz. philosophy, arts, society, and women. His love for journalism is evident in his prose writings. Though he is basically committed to poetry, his prose-style and elegant expressions in his essays inspire the younger generation. Thus he is not only a revolutionary poet, but also a revolutionary prose writer.
His poems reflect patriotism and love for Mother India. His encounter with sister Nivedita made him to realize the significance of women and their freedom. He considered women as Sakti. He saw India an image of Parasakti and personified the state of freedom as a Mother-Goddess. He sings:
Alas, born in a hapless land
That remembers not the glories lost
Knowing the power of your grace, Mother,
How best may I propitiate thee?
His Kannan Pattu (Krishna’s Songs), Panchali Sabadham (the vow of Panchali) and Kuil Pattu (the Song of the Kukoo) are classics and remembered by all as they show the poet’s ability to make poem as a symbol of love and attachment. He could see Lord Krishna as mother, father, friend, servant and friend. Similarly his Pachali Sabadham reflect his political protest against the British. The Kuyil Pattu shows his free verse skill.
Bharathi’s poems were recited everywhere during the freedom struggle and it gave inspiration for the people to participate in the freedom movement. No doubt, he was a patriotic poet, a devotional lyricist and a social activist. Many of his thoughts were revolutionary. He never aspired for money. He says: “My work is poetry, service to the Motherland, and eternal vigilance”. He was not worried about the troubles that surrounded him:
No fear, no withdrawal;
No shame, no body’s trembling;
No sin, no hiding.
He worshipped Kali which is reflected in many of his poems. The Kali form is dear to him at all times, and he sees the divine as the visible creation.
You manifest as all, O Kali,
Everywhere you
The bad and the good
Aren’t they the divine’s play?
The five elements, O Kali,
And the senses, all yourself;
O Kali, you are knowledge
Beyond the mind.
Subramania Bharati passed away in 1921. But his poems were recited and sung almost everywhere with the coming of Gandhi to Indian politics. His poetry was torrential river. There was none who came after him who subsumed so many facets of life. He was unequivocal in his denunciation of casteism and suppression of women.
The following sub-themes will be discussed:
Nationalism of Subrmania Bharathi
Subrmania Bharathi as a Journalist
The impact of Goddess Kali on Subrmania Bharathi
His stay at Varanasi: How did it shaped the Poet?
Subrmania Bharathi’s encounter with Gandhi

Concept Note on
Invitation to Holistic Health
Integrative System of Health Care
Recognition of hygiene and health, both individual and social, is a hallmark of civilized society as they are essential for stability, all-round and holistic development, and self-realization. Though health is primarily an internal value and hygiene is external but symbiosis of the two is necessary for physical, mental and spiritual enhancement. It is a truism to say that only in a healthy body resides a healthy mind and when there is psycho-physical health there is spiritual solace. Not only body but mind also gets diseased and so too feelings and emotions. In fact, sickness of feelings and emotions makes mind sick and the sickness of mind makes body sick. The realm of sickness is vast.
Health is not negation of disease. It is more than absence of disease. It is a positive state of wellness, of being self-situated (sva+stha). Taking medicine, treating disease, and restoring health– this is not the right understanding of health. Again, there will be disease and loss of health. Again medicine will be taken and then health will be restored. In this way health becomes a handmaid of medicine. This is not the proper way of looking at the situation.
Health is a positive state of physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being. It is realization of balanced body, mental strength, positive thinking, pure consciousness and pure soul. It is our natural capacity (svabhava). By this we are always at ease. It implies that if our material intake is good and pure, then body remains balanced, mind remains in order and soul is also self-situated. Body, mind and soul have to be at ease or in equilibrium (svastha). This “healthiness” is conducive to bring about understanding of our unfailing-interconnectedness with our fellow beings, our environment, and our planet earth and thus help create harmony in the society and in the cosmos as a whole.
By implication it also means that health is our disease-deterrent capacity (Immunity). The sounder is the health, the stronger is the human. Negative thinking and negative feeling both diminish disease-deterrent capacity (Immunity). Unbridled-ness of senses and ego (anatahkarana) weakens the power of preventing disease (Immunity). Medicine is to be administered to one who invites ailment. The treatment of negative attitude and of unbridled-ness of senses implies invitation to health. Conversely, positive attitude and control of senses mean invitation to health. It is much easy to invite disease. But it is very difficult to invite health. Health is more a prevention than a cure of disease. By thinking and reflecting over it one can reach to the core of the heart.
The second complementary component of this paper is “Integrative medicine”. The system of integrative medicine is based on the view that optimum health of individual and society can be obtained only when all aspects of individual and social dimensions are taken into account in a symbiotic manner. This means that ‘healthfulness’ is an outcome of a dynamic interaction among our genetic (or, physiological), mental (or, psychological), spiritual, and social, and environmental factors. The practice of integrative medicine is characterized by diagnosis of core clinical imbalances that underlie the manifestation of disease. These imbalances arise due to insufficiency or excess in diet and nutrients, exposure to various toxic influences, viruses and infections, lack of exercises of body and mind, physical and emotional trauma, mistaken beliefs, wrong thinking etc. These “exposures and inputs’ are then processed through a special technique of investigation of genetic and metabolical predispositions, attitudes and beliefs. In other words, with this system we learn how to correct or cure the imbalances with easily doable dietary and lifestyle changes. In doing so we get empowered to understand health and become caretaker of our own health which is conducive to self-realization.
The seminar will also take into account the deficiencies of the current health system the inadequacies of which have been recognized by the World Health Organization in terms of its ever-increasing cost, inability to deal with many epidemic and chronic diseases and its misuse by the controlling vested interests at various levels.
There is a need to understand the conception of health and health care afresh. More attention is to be paid to prevention than to cure. In the sphere of cure also contemporary medicine is not the surest mode of correct diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Therefore, the scope of health care has to be expanded to comprehend all round health. For health promotion and disease prevention integrated and holistic approach is to be emphasized and popularized. The aim of holistic medicine is to look into all the factors and determinants of health so as to improve the health status of not only individual but the entire society using holistic approach. Ultimately, of course, only the individual human is responsible for this as he or she has to make the necessary adjustment to hygienic requirements, nutritious diet and conducive lifestyle. A doctor can only be a guide. The practice of holistic medicine does not rule out resorting to any one system of medicine or combination of different compatible systems. All it requires is judicious decision and proper care.
