Tamil Heritage and Thai Pongal

Tamil is one of the longest-surviving classical languages in the world and spoken by about 75 million people throughout the world. Tamil is more than a language. It is associated with the various forms of arts, rich literature articulating the righteousness, love and valour, way of living aligned with the nature and pan global mindset. Though the concepts of Tamil Heritage originated nearly 2000 years ago, they are still relevant to the present modern society. In 300 BCE, Tamil poet Kaniyan Poongunranar wrote ‘யாதும் ஊரே யாவரும் கேளிர் – To us all towns are one, all men our kin’ and emphasised the multiculturalism. Australia is a home for thousands of Tamils from Sri Lanka, India, Singapore, Malaysia , Mauritius, South Africa and other countries. The vibrant Australian Tamil Community actively contributes to the betterment of the states in various ways.
