The Tamil Literary Garden is unique in being the only one in the world dedicated to the promotion of Tamil internationally. Though Tamil is an ancient language, one of the oldest in the world with significance to global literature, scant little has been done to date to actively promote or celebrate the language and contemporary authors who have contributed to its growth. Hence the focus of this organization is on supporting translation of Tamil literature, scholarship to students, revival of ancient Tamil Theatre, sponsoring
lecture series, commissioning publications, book launches, and workshops. In its annual, globally awaited awards ceremony Tamil Literary Garden recognizes significant achievements in Tamil in a number of genres and fields including Lifetime Achievement in Tamil. Donations to the organization are crucial to keep Tamil alive and to bring the best of what we have to offer to the world. It is a charitable organization and your donations are tax-deductible.
