Kanakadasa was also a victim of the caste system. However, his unwavering devotion soon convinced even the most orthodox that in the eyes of God, everyone was equal. Kanakadasa's songs are still sung all over Karnataka, even though it has been hundreds of years since he died. In this Amar Chitra Katha, it is God who plays the role of reformer, elevating those who truly worship him.
He believed that Rama was always by his side, and his songs were filled with undying devotion to his lord. The simplicity and beauty of his songs have come to us in the form of Kritis. He is remembered for his contribution to Carnatic music, and musicians and music lovers meet every year to pay homage to him.
Amar Chitra Katha tells the story of this great saint.
