Nurturing a love for Tamil literature


THE Malaysia Tamil Vasagar Peravai (Tamil Readers Council) marked the formation of its latest branch in Perlis with the launch of a book of short stories by local Tamil language authors, reported Makkal Osai.

Peravai chairman TM Manoharan said the association intended to stimulate the local literary scene by identifying new talents and encouraging young readers.

To achieve this, the council wanted to form a chapter in every state to revive the state- and national-level councils.

> Makkal Osai also reported that farmers in India, who protested against three agricultural laws, have vowed to go ahead with a massive rally despite them being scrapped.The laws were introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government last year.

Protests began in August last year and grew through the pandemic despite attempts to quell demonstrations.
