Tamil meet to highlight greatness of Dravidian culture

CHENNAI: The World Classical Tamil conference is being organised to highlight the greatness of art, culture, literature and civilisation of Dravidians, Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi said on Wednesday.

Eminent Tamil scholars and linguists will participate in the deliberations, he said in a statement.

Contrasting the theme song of the conference with that of the Eighth World Tamil Conference held in Thanjavur in 1995, he said that the song for the Classical Tamil Conference encapsulated the contributions of Tamil culture and literature down the ages whereas the focus of the World Tamil Conference’s song was on the then Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

The reason as to why he had reminded party members about the 1995 meet was to emphasise “trust not poison, otherwise find yourselves in sorrow.”
