Aim - 'Translated books have profoundly shaped our cultural perspective over the past half century' - Jon Parrish Peede, Awaiting News at the Dock.
Literature is a mirror of the social and cultural relationships within a people, a society and a culture. When works of literature are translated from a foreign language, the recipients in the new language are enabled to achieve insight into the social and cultural conditions of that people or nation. And because dialogue between cultures requires channels, literature is also a highly important tool in that dialogue. If one wishes to get to know a culture, two options are available: either one learns the language, or one reads the literature in translation. Of course, language teaching is subject to limitations, simply because there are so many languages that it's impossible to learn them all; so translation will continue to be the most important channel of communication between cultures.

M.A., Tamil second year -Third semester
Aim - Introduction of computer use and web application to students.
We introduce the Tamil internet paper for PG Tamil students. Students in institutions of higher learning should take advantage of information available on the Internet in their coursework. The Internet is also utilized for social and other non-academic functions. Hence, it is desirable, for students to strike a balance in the time spent online for academic and non-academic purposes. The number of Internet users is growing explosively worldwide, with 44.8% Internet users coming from Asia alone. In Tamil nadu , Internet users have increased very rapidly too.
Advances in computer technology have enabled the Internet to serve as a platform not merely to seek information, but also to exchange ideas and knowledge with other users, and obtain expert opinions via email, teleconferencing, chatting and other avenues. Nevertheless, the advent of social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and others that include chatting and online games have changed the perception on Internet use from one that is associated with learning to that of a socializing facility. Such website applications have resulted in the Internet being used for both academic and non-academic activities. Several studies have been conducted to identify the use of Internet among youth and students in institutions of higher education.
Benefits - Students with a degree in Tamil Internet knowledge are highly prized by employers and typically pursue a wide variety of careers around the world.
