Subramania Bharathi- Died in Benaras 11 Sept 1921 He was badly affected by the imprisonments and by 1920, when a General Amnesty Order finally removed restrictions on his movements, Bharati was already struggling. He was struck by an elephant at Parthasarathy temple, Triplicane, Chennai, whom he used to feed regularly.[2] Although he survived the incident, a few months later his health deteriorated and he died on September 11, 1921 early morning around 1 am.[2]Though Bharati was a people's poet and a great nationalist, outstanding freedom fighter and social visionary, it is a recorded sad fact that there were only 14 people to attend his funeral.
