The activities of the Tamil Association functions under the banner Tamil Mandram. The main aim of Tamil Mandram is to bring out the innate talents in students that can flow unobtrusive when expressed in the mother tongue.
The activities are multifarious. Our students marvel in Tamil Oratorical contests and debates, thereby exposing and developing their language skill and personality. Well known personalities are invited to judge their performance. Experts from outside are brought into deliver talks and give food for our thoughts and also to nourish self-confidence in young minds.
Poetry writing competitions are a regular feature. A good number of students come forward to take part in it and also bag prizes both inside and outside the college. Workshops are conducted with the aim of imparting training to bring out dramatic talents.
A novel feature of the Tamil Mandram is to encourage students to interview writers. The interviewer gathers first hand knowledge about the intricate techniques of creative writing, to fashion his own writing. Workshops are also conducted to develop creative writing in different genres, like novel, short story, prose, poetry and their branches.
To inculcate reading habits in students, they are assigned to write book reviews. Once a month Ilakia Solai - Santhipom and Sinthipome is convened in which an overall interpretation of a book and its author is made available to everyone by a student. Generally, eight books are reviewed in a meeting.
