Beyond Vanakkam

An Odia official remarked the other day that during his stint in Madurai, he started speaking Tamil after six months. That set me to think how significant the role of Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville has been in furthering Tamil speaking among outsiders. This has also given rise to diverse cultural exchanges and prepared the field for wider receptivity of the civilizational legacy allied to this ancient language. [TNM]
