“Rajagopalachari was an accomplished writer who made lasting contributions to Indian English literature and was also credited with the composition of the song Kurai Onrum Illai set to Carnatic music,” he mentioned. He pioneered temperance and temple entry movements in India and advocated Dalit upliftment, he added.
