Sir,

As today on 14.02.2021, you are on the visit of Tamil Nadu and Kerala State and greeting the gathering with Vannakam, I have a humble request.

As a person hailing basically from North India (Haryana) and settled in the Southern state of Karnataka since last 13 years, I feel extremely happy and delighted the kind of support, help and affection I receive here from my brothers and sisters from the southern states of Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Now most of my close friends and family friends are from these southern states. The strong feeling of oneness as being the citizens of India is observed in the behavior of all the persons with whom I interact daily at both professional and personal level. Here, I never feel that I am 2000 KMs away from my Hometown.

Delhi, the capital of whole India, is geographically located at a quite far distance from the southern states of India. But physical distance is not a hindrance to the residents of southern states from having keen interest in the events, happenings and news of Delhi, whether political or Non-political in nature. I personally feel that when residents of the southern states visit Delhi, it will be delightful for them if they find statues of the legendary poets from their own state in national capital.

I request you to think about the idea of installing statues of Kannada poet Sarvjana from Karnataka, Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar from, Malayalam poet Poonathanam from Kerala, Telugu poet Yogi Vemana from Andhra Pradesh at the various locations in Delhi. The key sayings or famous verses of these great poets like Vachanas in case of Sarvajna should be inscribed in English and Hindi on the plaque of their statues. I have mentioned name of only few poets for example here, there many other great poets and philosophers from the southern states whose teachings are not only relevant to whole India but universal in nature.

This gesture will not only strengthen national integration and feeling of oneness among all the citizens of India and encourage interstate cultural exchange, it will also give the opportunity to the residents of Delhi and north India especially to the younger generation, to learn from the great teachings of poets and philosophers form the southern states. Where our younger generation knows about the numerous western philosophers and thinkers, we should also provide them opportunity to them to learn from the writings and ideas of legendary Indian poets from various states.

The locations for the statues of poets can be Airport complex, Railway stations, Metro stations and other prominent public places.

Whenever a youngster with smart phone in hand will see the statue of Sarvajna with his Vachanas inscribed on the plaque of the statue, it will definitely evoke curiosity to google more about Sarvajna, his sayings, teachings and philosophy. This phenomenon will make the younger generation more aware about the rich and great heritage of India.
