“Jaffna is not an ordinary soil…we never consider this soil in an ordinary manner…This is a holy soil ..this is a Literature soil…This is a thinking soil..This is an intellectual soil. We always revere this soil which always contained reputed Literary men and Religious dignitaries.
We have a long and traditional umbilical cord relationship. That umbilical cord relationship is the Tamil Language we speak. Thus, we could raise our heads and be proud in saying that we are Tamils.
Jaffna Tamils can pronounce Tamil better than the people in our country, whose mother tongue is Tamil. “, said the Indian Deputy Consul, R. Nadarajan while speaking in a debate held in Sangiliyan Thoppu under the aegis of Indian Consulate and the NP Educational and Cultural Ministry.
