Tallahassee Tamil (Tamizh) Families'
Celebration of Tamil (Tamizh) New Year
Saturday, April 14, 2007
Tallahassee, FL 32310, USA
About forty (40) Tallahassee Tamil families got together on Saturday, April 14, 2007 evening (the same day of the New Year itself) and celebrated the Sarvajit Tamil New year. There was an hour and half long cultural program followed by sumptuous meal.
Our group did a small Tamil drama about Ramayanam. Bhanu found a drama in English and we back translated to Tamil added segments in the front and the back to accommodate the many kids who wanted to participate in the drama (we had a dozen kids). Even though the kids had only few weeks to practice, the came through very well. I read out the script using a PA system and the kids enacted the play. In all the play was a great success.
