Blame it on my friend, whom I saw yesterday after a gap of 5 years. He was saying that there are hardly any English translations of Bharathi's work. Of course, that's not true. There are a lot of translations (scroll down and search for Bharati), only that they are not freely available on the net. He tempted me with the idea of starting a blog for translation of Bharathi's works. This new blog, A Spark of Fire, started off thus. Criticism and suggestions welcome.
