SINGAPORE: A project that digitises 50 years of Tamil literature in Singapore aims to pass on Tamil cultural and literary traditions to the younger generation, through technology.
The project is led by the Tamil Digital Heritage Group, which is also working with several partners.
The partners are the National Library Board, National Heritage Board, National Art Council, National Book Development Council of Singapore as well as Tamil authors and community organisations.
The digitised collection will be presented to the nation in 2015 to mark the 50th anniversary of Singapore's independence.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office S Iswaran said: "The main aspect of this project is that it brings Tamil literature that's been conceived and developed in Singapore; it's digitising it and therefore bringing it to a new platform, to the broader community in Singapore and around the world." - CNA/nd
