DMK for introduction of Scientic Tamil

Written by: Staff

Chennai, Mar 26 (UNI) Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam President M Karunanidhi today said the need of the hour is to introduce 'Scientific Tamil' for the language to grow.

Inaugurating a one-day conference on the Scientific Tamil organised by the Indian branch of the US-based International Tamil Centre (ITC) here, Mr Karunanidhi also stressed the need to spread the use of Scientific Tamil.

He recalled that even in ancient Tamil classic 'Tholkappiam' there was mention about various usage of Tamil.

Charging the ruling AIADMK Government with 'swindling' funds given by the Union Government for providing relief to the victims of 2004 Tsunami, the DMK chief said the relief measures had not reached to the needy so far but reached only at the hands of ruling AIADMK men.

ITC India branch President and popular Carnatic maestro Sudha Raghunathan, in her address said the object of the conference was to propagate the specialities of the Tamil language and Tamil culture to coordinate the Tamils, living in various parts of the World.

ITC India Branch Secretary Manimegalai Kannan, in her address said the ITC had started its maiden branch in the country, and would open similar branches all over the world, especially in countries, where Tamils reside in large numbers.

She said the aim of the ITC was to establish Endowments on Tamil language growth, set up educational research centres, translate popular Tamil literatures in other languages, fight for the rights of the Tamils, and unite them all over the world under one umbrella, based on the Tamil culture.

ITC President Vincent Panchatsaram said the ITC was planning to establish its headquarters at New York in a 1000-acre site with an investment of several crore of rupees.

Dr Vincent said the project would be implemented in three-phases.
