The Tamil diaspora has a chequered history, travelling in numbers, not only as labour to other colonies during the British rule — but a millennia ago — to Southeast Asia — as successful traders. As India opens up, the Indian diaspora is a soft-power that the nation can utilise, in building people-to-people contact, that can go a long way in bilateral ties and national interests.


V. Suryanarayan, is the founder-director of the Centre for South and South-Asian Studies, University of Madras.

The timing of the event is from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
