PICTURE POST CARD RELEASED AT-World Classical Tamil Conference, 2010

World Classical Tamil Conference, 2010 held at Coimbatore from 23rd June 2010 to 27th June 2010.  India Post, Coimbatore has released a Pictorial Post Card and five Pictorial Cancellations on the occasion.

Significance of Pictorial Post card

The image of Thiruvallavar’s statue in Kanyakumari, being lashed by waves caused by the tsunami and encircled by seven icons from the Indus Valley Civilisation, forms part of the logo of the World Classical Tamil Conference.  The logo emphasises the ideal of humankind, that it should always be free of narrow walls of race, creed, and caste. The message is found in a palm leaf manuscript at the bottom of the statue.  This concept (“pirapokkum ella uyirkkum” = All living humans are one in circumstances of birth) has been declared to be the motto of the meet.  The Indus Valley Civilisation icons, found in the logo, symbolize the Dravidian Civilisation, which is regarded as the most ancient civilization of the world.  The number of icons stresses the importance of ‘seven’ in the lives of Tamils.

Significance of  Pictorial Cancellations.
