Its unfair to conclude without telling Quote from a freedom fighter .I like MahaKavi SubramaNiya Bharathiyar . Not only his words spoked about freedom but his breathe spoked the freedom.One of his poem i woul like to share.

விடுதலை! விடுதலை! விடுதலை!
பறைய ருக்கும் இங்கு தீயர்
புலைய ருக்கும் விடுதலை
பரவ ரோடு குறவருக்கும்
மறவ ருக்கும் விடுதலை!
திறமை கொண்டதீமை யற்ற
தொழில் புரங்ந்து யாவரும்
தேர்ந்த கல்வி ஞானம் எய்தி
வாழ்வம் இந்த நாட்டிலே.

இப்பாடலுடன் நம் விடுதலை அடைத்தோம் என்பதை மார் நிமிர்த்தி பெருமிதத்துடன் சொல்கிறேன்.இனிய சுதந்திரதின நல்வாழ்த்துகள் நண்பர்களே !

நம்நாடு நம் கலாச்சாரம் !

நம்நாடு நம் கலாச்சாரம் !
