A baker from Puducherry, Thangam Tennarasu, has made a 6.6 feet tall statue of poet Bharathiyar using dark chocolate. The statue has Bharathiyar holding a book that reads "Naan Veezhven Endru Ninaithaayo?"--- Did you think I will slouch in failure?". The baker makes chocolate statues of eminent personalities every Christmas season.
However, Bharathiyar's famous moustache is not prominent at the first glance since it is a chocolate statue. Tennarasu said that their cafe creates statues of eminent personalities ahead of Christmas and New Year every year.
