Kanakadasa’s literary works hailed

Bhakti movement saint-poet Kanakadasa was a unique personality having a combination of philosophy, economics, sociology and music, Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily said on Sep 21.

Inaugurating a two-day national seminar ''Saint-poet Kanakadas''s Literary Contribution towards Bhakti Movement in India'', Mr Moily said the 16th century poet was a person who combined "the intellect and the heart" to send across his message.

"Today, Kanakadasa has been launched to the world. Even before Karl Marx came out with a class struggle (theory), I think a seed of the caste struggle was injected by Kanakadasa through his works," Mr Moily said.
