While saying that the enemies who wanted to destroy the Tamil Nation destroyed our books first , the Northern Governor, Dr. Suren Ragavan also said that it is his duty to protect our Language.
He said so in an event to grant appointment to graduates teachers and other related officers held at Vembadi Girls College, Jaffna , yesterday.
Every nation in the world has its own identity. For the Tamils their language is the only identity. We will be able to make our life under the great umbrella that is our Language.
As per researches, Tamil is one of the 5 oldest languages in the world. They say that the Tamil we speak in Jaffna is in it pure form and belongs to the soul of Mother Tamil. It is why the enemies first destroyed our books before destroying Tamil people.
You will be offered children of people at the brink of a fallen country. The society of tomorrow will ask you questions. You will have to lay the foundation for protecting our Nation and Culture and transform it into the best Nation, he said.
