Trust Objective

Tamil is one of the longest-surviving classical languages in the world. The variety and quality of classical Tamil literature has led to it being described as “one of the great classical traditions and literature of the world”. Thiruvalluvar, commonly known as Valluvar, was a celebrated Tamil poet and philosopher. SOAS’s South Asia Institute in London commemorated the great Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar, whose well-loved statue has been part of SOAS for 21 years.
