About Us

The three great pillars of Art- " Iyal (writing)", "Isai (music)" and "Nadagam (drama)" -have always been intertwined with the lives of Tamil Community, since time immemorial. Since the glorious days of “Sanga Kalam”, many great Tamil Scholars have contributed to the richness of Tamil Literature with their incomparable and immortal literary works.

This great tradition continues till date. Wherever they are, Tamilians are passionate about their Art and Culture and keep the Tamil flag flying high through their various cultural activities.

We, herein Muscat, propagate the Tamil Culture through the “Muscat Tamil Sangam”, which was revived, after a brief break, in 1996. Starting with a small group of people in 1996, our Sangam has grown tremendously over the years and today, boasts of a membership of over 350 Families, which is growing by the day.

Our Sangam takes pride in the fact that ours was the first organisation in Muscat to impart teaching of Tamil Language to the children of our members, who, otherwise, would not have had an opportunity to learn their mother tongue. We consider this is as one of our sangam’s greatest services towards our beloved “Tamil Thai”.

Traditionally, Muscat Tamil Sangam has been organizing and participating in various cultural programmes, to give an opportunity for the enormous but dormant and untapped talents that we have in our community, to bloom and blossom.

We are proud that today we have many known singers, actors, dancers, sports persons, story writers, speakers, programme organizers etc in our community, whose talents have come to the limelight through our sangam’s various activities.

Over the years, our Sangam have organized Dance Ballets, Dramas, Sports events, drawing competitions, cooking competitions, summer camps etc which have won great acclaim.

Our sangams’s yearly Pongal Sports Event has always been very popular and a great success, with attendance from the member community growing year after year.

 



 

Our sangam has participated in the many Musical and Drama competitions that the Indian Social Club organizes every year and won many prizes. Our Sangam has been retaining the rolling trophy for maximum number of prizes in the yearly music contest organized by the Indian Social Club.

One of the proudest moments for our sangam every year is the Annual Academic Excellence Award function, where we honour and felicitate the outstanding students from the local Indian Schools for their academic achievements in the Xth Std Board Exams.

This is a unique activity, of which we are very proud.
