This collection of essays covers a broad range of topics concerning Tamil culture all over the world. Tamils, originating in South India and Sri Lanka, constitute a large part of the diasporic South Asians in Canada, as well as the United States, Australia, and Europe. This book is therefore of special relevance to the concerns of multiculturalism and globalization.
Including essays by Layne Little, Archana Venkatesan, Susan Schomburg, Anand Pandian, E Annamalai, V Geetha, Ravi Vaitheespara, Chelva Kanaganayakam, Joseph A Chandrakanthan, and R Cheran.
