External links 8 Early life and education Vairamuthu was born to Ramaswamythevar and Angammal of Mettur in a middle-class family. When he was four, the village gave way to Vaigai Dam and the family moved to Vadugapatti village , community in Theni near Periyakulam. I was brought up in a lower middle class Tamil family with the usual poverty, hopes and frustrations peculiar to a Tamil youth.
One thing I would like to mention about my younger days. I had a conviction that I was born to serve the Tamil language and it would come within my spell. The ambience of the village is said to have inspired him to write poems. According to him, Tamil and Rationalist movements of the sixties stimulated his poetic zeal.
While in his second year of BA and barely nineteen years of age, Vairamuthu published his maiden anthology Vaigarai Megangal. Thus, he achieved the distinction of a student poet whose work was taken into curriculum while he was still a student.
Then I was twenty. It was a viruththam type of poem titled iLa nenjin Ekkam the yearning of a young heart , published in , Poems are molded by times. A poet of Sangam period had no scientific material to present. He had the opportunity to write on nature.
Kamban centered his poems on Bhakthi or devotion to God. It was the basis for that period. The struggle for independence provided the material for Bharathi. His works were molded by that period. Poets after Sangam literature, Kamban, Bharathi and Bharathidasan and after the ascendancy of the movement to hold the Tamil flag aloft, you cannot ignore the impact of contemporary education and knowledge, and science in his works.
This is the age of science. Hence the poets of the period have necessarily to sound the voice of science. A movie lyric does that now and then. A poem is a creation inspired by the feeling that is poetry. The one that affects me, the one that prompts me to write, the one emotion that I have experienced; that alone is poetry.
A movie song is different. Emotions that are experienced by a character, which are not real, gets into me and writes with that which is real within me and comes out as a lyric. Most of the times, it may not be my real feelings.
I write the lyric for a drunkard to sing. In the song, he is under compulsion to justify drinking. That is the nature of that character. That view may not be acceptable to me. It is the demand of the character in the movie. Likewise, I present emotions not acceptable in a song. Some of his works are translated into Telugu , Kannada and Malayalam.
The trend continues as hundreds of his film lyrics and translated into Hindi. Kalaivannan is the hero; Tamilroja is the heroine. A lot of scientific facts about the sea, water, and the universe are sown in this modern poetry pudhukk kavidhai.
Kallikattu Idhihasam Kallikkattu Edhihasam the epic of Kallikkadu, in literal translation is one of his novels.
It tells the agonising tale of a marginal farmer of a riverbed region of the Theni belt in southern Tamil Nadu. Kallikattu Ithikasam" — a confluence of various emotions like sadness, sufferings and depression—crammed his mind for more than four decades.
But with a silver lining. Karuvachi Kaaviyam This depicts powerfully the facets of rural life in a remote corner of our State, was serialised in a popular regional weekly, Ananda Vikatan and won accolades. Owing to its huge popularity, the series was released as a novel Sirpiye Unnai Sedhukukiraen A powerful book says about the good mannerism of life and personality development, self-control, aim of life, and each and every part that makes a complete man.
Iduvarai Naan This is an autobiography written at the age of The Hindu. At the invitation of the Russian Government , Vairamuthu has visited Russia to participate in an Indian cultural event in His works have the underlying themes of humanism transcending barriers of space and race.
He opened Tamil schools in Bangkok , Canada and Hong Kong promoting Tamil children living there to develop an interest in learning the language. In , his own album was released in a village in Tiruppur district. This album fully mentioned human activity and death far. Awards and recognition Vairamuthu holds the record of winning maximum number of National Film Award for Best Lyrics six times.
Early life[ edit ] Vairamuthu was born on July 13, to Ramasamy and his wife Angammal, who were agriculturalists based in the village of Mettoor , in the district of Theni , Tamil Nadu.
