Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

About Tamils

Tamil is one of the classical languages like Latin, Sanskrit, Hebrew, Chinese and Arabic and the oldest spoken Indian language. The Tamil community is one of the oldest in the world and they are spread out all over the world.

Tamil Nadu (or the land of the Tamils) is one of the southern states of India, having always enjoyed a pride of place in India, be it before independence or after. The Tamils have looked beyond the state for opportunities and have travelled to distant places to improve their lifestyle, some settling down in their new homes.

Before Indian independence, they went mostly as workers, but after 1947, they have been travelling for higher education, white collar jobs and resettlement. In nearby Sri Lanka there are Tamils who have migrated from India as well as Sri Lankan Tamils.

Thus we find a large population of Tamils in Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Fiji, South Africa, Mauritius, and even France. The past 20 years have also seen a large influx of Sri Lankan Tamils into Western Europe and North America, because of ethnic problems there. The Tamils have been so predominant in countries like Sri Lanka, Singapore & Malaysia that Tamil has been recognized as one of the official languages in these countries.

Though the Tamil population in several countries earlier consisted mostly of a working class, several Tamils have now established themselves as professionals and entrepreneurs, but the numbers of these are still low. The main aim of this conference is to bring the Tamils of the world together, so that they can provide support and guidance to one another and utilize the potential that is waiting to be tapped.
