Tamil poets and writers gathered periodically to publish their work at what was called Sangam, according to legends. This happened ages ago around 200 BC. The period was called Sangam Period and the literature of this time is still referred to as the Sangam literature. Sangapalagai was the name given to the platform where Tamilians shared their highly creative ventures and recieved acclamation from literature lovers. Sangapalagai was also an accreditation platform. All new creations were evaluated by a team of critiques before they could find a place on Sangapalagai. Sangam means a group of people who are united with a common interest. Palagai means a platform. Sangapalagai is coming to life once again in this digital world. We aim to connect Tamilians all over the world virtually through the new Sangapalagai. A double purpose can be served by Sangapalagai. 1. Provide an avenue of expression for Tamil writers and publishers. 2. Fulfill a basic need of Tamilians all over the world. The basic need that unites the Tamilians all over the world is the need to be connected to their root while remaining in touch with the latest developments.
