In the stillness of poetry

Music Director Ilaiyaraaja presents the ‘Vishnupuram Award 2012’ to poet Devadevan at a function organised by the Vishnupuram Ilakkiya Vattam.

Devadevan’s words have touched the lives of many people. Lakshmana Raja Kannan is one of them. Lakshmanan spent six years in the IT industry. But his dream was to make it big in cinema. An assistant film director now, he says that Devadevan’s poem Amaidhi Enbadhu helped him overcome the fear he felt during the final stage of his life-changing decision. The poem, praised as a milestone in Tamil literature by writer Jeyamohan, gave Lakshmanan the ability to see life in its true sense. He says, “It helped me take life lightly.”

The Vishnupuram Ilakkiya Vattam, formed by fans of writer Jeyamohan in 2009, honoured Devadevan with the ‘Vishnupuram Award 2012’. The award was presented by music director Ilaiyaraaja. Writers Nanjil Nadan, Kalpetta Narayanan and Jeyamohan, director Suga and critics Raja Gopalan and Mohana Rangan spoke in praise of the poet and his works.
