Thamizh 36. This weekly programme at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is educative. On Sangam literature.

What is your plan this Tuesday?

If you are a lover of Thamizh ilakkiyangal, you are sure to have a feast for your senses at this event called Thamizh 36 – Sanga illakiya Mozhakam being held at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, every Tuesday.

Started in the month of January, this series of Thamizh literary talks is in its 19th week (on June 13 2023). 

Jointly organised by Sri Krishna Sweets, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan and Uravu Surangam, the event draws a good number of literary lovers every week.

Murali Mahadevan, MD of Sri Krishna Sweets came up with this idea of taking the Sangam ilakkiyangal to the next generation.

The event has been curated in such a way that one speaker will speak on a selected subject from the Sanga ilakkiyangal, and a Tamil scholar and a Tamil publisher is to be honoured – every week.   

Youngsters who have studied Thamizh academically, at UG and PG levels, are also given the stage through these series.

The curator of this event, who wished to remain anonymous, says the audience gets to gain in-depth knowledge of all the topics based on the Sanga ilakkiyam.

This open-to-all, free programme – Thamizh 36 – is held every Tuesday at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mylapore.
