Hon Lady Godiva

Coventry, situated in the Midlands, is one of the ancient cities in England. World famous playwright William Shakespeare was born in Stratford, which is approximately thirty miles Southwest of Coventry. It is an industrial city and home for several inventions and productions. The very popular Jaguar car company is based here. Frank Whittle, who invented the Jet Engine, was born here too.

This city is world famous for our Lady Godiva's life story, which happened back in the thirteenth century and bringing meaning to the history and great heritage of the City, we still celebrate it every year in the streets of Coventry. The Godiva sprit, a timeless message of caring, unity and empowerment, stimulation and a smile for those in need of friendship - symbolises the humanity of mankind.


It was a magical world that I stepped into. One that was filled with musicality, serenity and divinity. As I threaded down the path of my Arangetram, little did I realise that at the end of it, the world of dance would have become part of me.
Since I could remember, I had always imagined myself performing my Arangetram whenever I attended one. Finally, with God�s grace I had the privilege to do so with Apsara teacher. She is one who personifies love and dedication to dance. When I try to make a list of things that I learnt from her, that list becomes endless. All I can tell you is that today I not only look at dance, but music, art, and culture with new eyes. It was she who opened that door into this magical world.-> -> -> M O R E

பொங்கல் திருநாள்

பொங்கல் திருநாள் மதம் சார்ந்த விழா அல்ல. நாற்று வைத்து, களை எடுத்து, பாடுபட்டு விளையவைத்து, அறுவடை செய்த நெல்லை அரிசியாக்கி, புதுப் பானை கொண்டு வாசலில் வைத்துப் பொங்கி, அதனை எல்லாமுமாக விளங்கும் இயற்கை அன்னைக்குப் படையலிட்டு > > > MORE

Tribute to Honourable Dr Anton Balasingam.

Tamils are saddened by the passing away of Dr. Anton Balasingam the "Voice of the Nation". It is a great loss to the Tamils living in this world. We have lost a great soul who sacrificed his life in the struggle of the Tamils for justice, dignity and peace. Dr. Balasingam was the theoretician, the political advisor and the chief negotiator of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, the National Liberation Movement of the Tamils and the de facto government of the North East of the Island of Sri Lanka. He was the most prominent international voice articulating the oppression of the Tamils and their response of asserting their right to determine their own political future. > > > MORE

Power of Non-Violence - An episode in reverse Psychology

I was 16 years old and living with my parents at the institute my grandfather had founded 18miles outside of Durban, South Africa, in the middle of the sugar plantations. We were deep in the country and had no neighbors, so my two sisters and I would always look forward to going to town to visit friends or go to the movies.... > > > MORE
