Their battleground – journalism. Their weapon of choice – the pen. These turbaned, moustachioed native warriors even resembled each other in their sartorial look and intense gaze!

"Naanum Thamizhum" is a ten-part video series featuring ten experts who have excelled in their careers outside of the Tamil language. In each episode, these experts share how Tamil has played a significant role in their personal and professional lives. The goal of this series is to inspire young individuals to develop an appreciation for Tamil and to demonstrate the diverse applications of the language.
To keep Tamil a living language in Singapore, it is necessary for the younger generation of Tamils to understand and appreciate the significance of Tamil culture and tradition. This project aims to provide basic information about Tamil culture and tradition.
Digital Resource on Tamil Culture and Tradition
In commemoration of SG50, a collection of 350 Tamil literary works of Singapore from 1965 to 2015 was digitised and offered as the Indian community’s gift to the nation. The public can now appreciate 50 years of Singapore Tamil literature on NLB’s BooksSG portal, anytime and anywhere.

The logo is made up of eight arrows and three primary colours. The big and small arrows depict the "eight directions," which in Tamil connotes all directions, from which Tamil culture has been influenced in big and small ways. Tamil culture is a distillation of such multidirectional influences. Likewise, Tamil culture has influenced others in many directions. The arrows are arranged with gaps in between to indicate the open and dynamic nature of Tamil culture, instead of being fossilised in a closed, exclusive environment. Just as the three primary colours of Red, Green and Blue, when combined, create a multitude of other colours, so are the numerous cultural manifestations based on a few fundamental values of the culture.
