NEW DELHI: The “Kashi Tamil Sangamam” will be organised from November 16 to December 19 in Varanasi during which academic exchanges including seminars and discussions will be held among experts and scholars on various facets of the two ancient manifestations of Indian culture, the government announced on Thursday.
Union ministers Dharmendra Pradhan and L Murugan, said that the Bharatiya Bhasha Samiti has come up with a proposal to rediscover, reaffirm and celebrate the age-old links between the Tamil culture and Kashi that has existed since centuries.
The broader objective of the event is to bring the two knowledge and cultural traditions closer, create an understanding of our shared heritage and deepen the people-to-people bond between the regions.
“India is a symbol of civilisational connectivity. The Kashi-Tamil Sangamam shall be an ideal platform to understand the unity in India’s civilisational assets through two historic centres of knowledge and culture. The Sangamam to be organised under the overall framework and spirit of ‘Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat’ will create a bridge between ancient India and contemporary generation.
“Kashi Sangamam will rediscover the link between these two ancient centres of knowledge, culture and heritage,” said Pradhan.
To ensure that the benefit of these discussions reaches the actual practitioners of these knowledge streams, it is proposed that in addition to experts, common practitioners from various groups from different parts of Tamil Nadu, can be brought for an eight-day visit to Varanasi and its neighbouring areas.
