Tamil Chair at Harvard

Post by MaxEntropy_Man on Fri Sep 08, 2017 9:52 am

To the Thamizhars and others interested in Thamizh on SUCH, there is an initiative to install a new chaired professorship at Harvard focused on Thamizh studies. We are looking to come up with an endowment of $6M and it has been a steady but slow climb. Please donate and make this happen:

Great. Just curious to know whether any chairs for Hindi/Sanskrit or any other Indian Language in any major US university?

Questions to those Tamil Nadu Tamils who day they are Indians and India is their country.

How much money did Indian gov contribute to the Harvard Tamil Chair Fund?

Indian gov has wholly funded many  Hindi chairs around the world.

To my knowledge there is no Hindi chair funded by private contributions.

Tamil Chair at Univ of Calif, Berkeley was established from private contributions.

Good effort.

Harvard has Sanskrit chair and now Tamil chair.

More chairs needed. Oriya, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Bengali, Punjabi, Konkani and more

Hey Kayar,
Put your money where your mouth is. Let us know how much money you are donating........
I hope the Tamizh chair will expose the hollow claims of DKheads on Aryan/Dravidian BS and do some real scholarly work........
