Kuwait Thamizh Sangam (KTS) ...

 

The great Tamil Poet and freedom fighter Mahakavi Bharathiyar wrote “Tamil, the language sweeter than honey shall be taken to all corners of the world (Thaemadhura Thamizhosai Ulagamelam Paravum Vagai Seidhal Vendum)”. Tamil diaspora crossed the oceans looking for new lands to flourish over entire world. For those Tamils landed in Kuwait, Kuwait Thamizh Sangam (Association for Kuwait Tamil) was started on 2nd October 2005 by the eminent well wishers of the society.

 

Tamil is an ancient language and it is the oldest language still spoken in India. It is the first language which is recognized as “Classical language” in India. …. The Tamil saying “Kal Thonri Man Thonraa Kaalathe Mun Thonriya Mootha Kudi (Tamil tribes lived in Earth since the time before stones were revealed by molten snow, when even sands were not formed)” highlights the richness of our language, culture and civilization. It is the principal and utmost duty of KTS to impart this awareness and pride to the Tamil society and their new generation in Kuwait.

 

KTS crossed several milestones and now functioning successfully with more than two hundred members. It is officially registered (Reg.No: KUW/ISI/321/16/2005) with Embassy of India in Kuwait.
