Statue for Chellamma Bharathi at Kadayam

Bharathi is one of the driving forces of Sevalaya. His statues and memorials are erected in places connected to his life, such as Ettayapuram, Varanasi, Chennai and Puducherry. But there is no trace of his life at Kadayam, the birthplace of his wife, where he spent 2 years of his life and penned many immortal poems. With the Tamilnadu state Government approval, Sevalaya has embarked on creating a memorial for Bharathi and his wife Chellamma, at Kadayam
