2007 Tamil New Year

2007 Tamil New Year Celebrations 

Saturday, April 14, 2007, 6:30-9:30 PM, Tallahassee, FL 32310.

Sarvajit Tamil (Tamizh) New Year (Chithirai 1, 2007) was celebrated on Saturday, April 14, 2007 evening in Tallahassee. About 40 Tamil families from in and around Tallahassee gathered on that evening and celebrated the new year with cultural programs and exchange of food.

Our group presented a small Tamil drama about Ramayanam. About fourteen kids participated in the program including Rama. We had practiced for about four weeks at home. Bhanu translated an English version back to Tamil. I modified to add more roles, directed and narrated it. It was a great success.

The cultural programs are organized by Thayumana & Gnanabhanu Somasundaram. This has been the fifth year of cultural programs being conducted to celebrate the new year. For more information please contact us at:
