As a learned scholar, Thani Nayagam Adigal served as a roving cultural ambassador for the Tamil language and devoted his life to propagate the greatness of Tamil to the whole world. He launched the historic International Association of Tamil Research to popularize the richness of the Tamil language and it’s culture. He attempted to create a worldwide community of Tamil scholars and pioneered the establishment of the International Institute of Tamil Studies. He founded the World Tamil Conference and was the Publisher of Tamil Culture (A Quarterly Journal) from 1952 to 1966. The contribution of his wisdom and experience for the Tamil Language is of immense value.
Documenting and archiving the work of Thani Nayagam Adigal is of paramount importance to the perseverance of the Tamil language.
