CM Edappadi K Palaniswami prompts PM Narendra Modi to include specialists from Tamil Nadu in panel studying Indian culture

Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi has requested him to intervene and guarantee that professionals from Tamil Nadu are included in the committee that is meant to study the origin and evolution of Indian culture

The Chief Minister’s letter revealed surprise on how the Ministry of Culture, which is accountable for this initiative, ignored specialists from the Southern state.

It was pointed out that the committee had no representative from any of the southern states, specifically from Tamil Nadu, which has a glorious past and is house to the Dravidian civilization and is a living and thriving culture in the south of India.

“The recent archaeological excavations in Keezhadi and other parts of Tamil Nadu revealed that the world-reputed Sangam era can now be gone back to as early as 6th century BCE. It places Tamil culture and language as one of the oldest surviving heritages worldwide,” the letter specified.

Referring to the Prime Minister’s Mamallapuram summit of September 2019, where he had visited the monoliths and saw Tamil heritage, it was worried that any chronicle of the Indian history and culture would be incomplete without providing its rightful place to Tamil culture and language.

Looking For Prime Minister Modi’s intervention, Palaniswami had asked for that the Ministry of Culture be directed to reconstitute the expert committee by inducting noteworthy scholars from Tamil Nadu.

This particular 16-member committee revealed by Prahlad Patel, Minister for Culture, has drawn much flaks from academicians and political leaders alike. It has been mentioned that there are no ladies on the panel and that it did not include experts from southern states and the northeastern states.
