KMS014. U.V. SWAMINATHA IYER

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

KANCHI MAHA SWAMI

About the famous Tamil Thatha,
Called Maha Mahobadhyaya,
Sri. U.V. Swaminatha Iyer
It must be mentioned here.

He was the son of his father,
Sri. Venkata Subbha Iyer,
And lived in his young age
At Uthamathanapuram Village.

He was a sincere devotee,
Of Kanchi Maha swami,
With whom he moved closely,
And respected him highly.

He became a Tamil Scholar,
Trained under great Teacher,
Sri. Meenakshi Sundaram Pillai,
Who worked as a Tamil Teacher.

In the Government run,
College, the famous one,
At Kumbakonam Town,
He was appointed then.

There, with the help of one,
Salem Ramaswamy Mudaliar,
He found out old palm leaves,
Containing etched out stories.

Like Jeevaka Chinthamani,
Pathupattu, Silappadigaram,
Manimegalai, Purananuru,
Ettuththogai, about 100 puranams.

From the decaying palm leaves,
He published all the stories,
In the form of Tamil books.
Thus he saved those literature.

For the services to Tamil literature
More can be said about Sri. Iyer,
But how Maha Swami consider
About him, let us see here.

Maha Swami, in praise of Sri. Iyer
Gave the title “Dakshinathya
Kalanidhi,” meaning “South India’s
Literary Treasure,” as an Honor.
