Remembering Vayalar

Today is the 38th death anniversary of Vayalar who fanned the flames of liberation and social justice through his poetry. In dark times when injustice rode rough shod over the oppressed masses, his genius ignited a revolt against feudal hegemony. Derided as ‘Kodambakkam poet’ and ‘poet aster’ by detractors, his revenge was lyrics that blazed forth the quenchless thirst for freedom cherished by the poor. He knew that more than committed literature people would identify with passionate poetry promising them a new blue sky of equality. The new generation cannot but be awestruck by the revolutionary fervor of his lines. Along with composer Devarajan he created magic in Malayalam movies.
