In his proclamation, Governor Roy Cooper has stated that Tamil is widely spoken in India, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and many communities throughout USA and world and that this language is central to Tamil identity and it is recognized as one of the world’s longest-surviving written and spoken languages.

 

In recognizing that Tamil people celebrate, during January, Thai Pongal which is a four-day harvest festival that coincides with the first day of the month of Thai in Tamil calendar, Governor Cooper has proclaimed that the State of North Carolina joins in celebrating Thai Pongal and in recognizing Tamil community for their ongoing contribution to the State.

 

Governor Roy Cooper has commended North Carolina’s Tamil community for its dedication to preserving Tamil culture and heritage and to preserving Tamil language for generations to come through language schools designed to educate young people.
