The six-time National Award winner has congratulated Bob Dylan on his Nobel Prize win.
In a statement , Vairamuthu said, “The musical and literary worlds together shower flowers on Bob Dylan on this special occasion of confirmation of this year’s Nobel Prize for Literature. Not just as a creator of literature but also as a poet, he has achieved this. The Nobel jury has risen above the Ptolemy and endorsed that poetry is also literature. We could term this as a premier without precedence.”
“Dylan started his career with his folk songs in the night clubs to this noble achievement. This peps up the creators of literature across the globe. It is evident that literature doesn’t live in books alone but also rises as a fine art form. Along with the voices of the world, Dylan’s words resonate everywhere for World peace, in the war against war and for human rights.”
