The honorable Vice-Chancellor of Tamil University, Prof. Dr. V. Thiruvalluvan, was the chief guest. Birth is not in our hands. It does not matter if we live in the village, are born into a small family, or are not beautiful. Millions of people worshipped Lord Krishna and Jesus. Lord Krishna was born in prison. The Lord Jesus was born on an animal farm, he said.
Women’s education is very important for our society’s development. Women should study well. Apart from that, they should also be aware of recent developments in other fields. Our current university curriculum will not help us. Apart from this, we also learn more information in other departments, also he denoted.
The special invitee, Mr. M.M. Jayaseelan, Senior Lecturer, Department of Tamil, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, pointed out the role of Tamilians in our society’s development. There are many differences between the present-day syllabus and the previous 50-year-old syllabus. Previously, our ancestors, Tamilians, studied Tamil subjects. They focused only on grammar and literature. Today, Tamil has been developed in the areas of computer Tamil, technology Tamil, science Tamil, translation Tamil, etc., he indicated.
Humanity is the renaming of culture. The era of women’s slavery was over. Today, our women have successfully achieved success in many areas. Kavignar R. Thanikodi, lyricist, Tamil Cinema Industry, elucidated.
Today’s society is developed in many fields due to the enhancement of women’s education, Dr. J. Raja, Associate Professor in Tamil at Periyar Arts College, Cuddalore, illustrated.
