Kashi Tamil Sangamam (KTS) was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 19 in Varanasi. “It is the responsibility of 130 million Indians to preserve and enrich the Tamil heritage. If we ignore Tamil, we do a great disservice to the nation, and if we keep it restricted to Tamil, we will do a great disservice,” PM Modi said at the inauguration.
Kashi Tamil Sangamam is organized in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh with the aim of celebrating the coherent civilization between Kashi and Tamil Nadu. 12 select teams from the southern state, 250 each, are traveling in special trains to Varanasi for an immersive Kashi experience that includes a Ganga bath, Ganga cruise and Ganga aarti and to showcase Tamil Nadu’s historical and eternal proximity to Kashi. The groups include students, teachers, professionals, business people and lovers of literature, heritage and culture. Sangamam will start on 16th November and end on 16th December.
