"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."

- Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

Relief & Rehabilitation Projects for Tamil Eelam

Tamil Youth Melbourne - Discussion Group - initiated by a gathering of like-minded individuals, who on seeing the lack of development in NorthEast Sri Lanka, were driven to do what they can to help.

Pallavi - Music Organisation  "Pallavi literally means 'sprout', a vegetation image associated in Indian symbol systems with rasa (sap, juice flavour, essential inspiring vitality) and it carries a sense of a beginning. It suggests the idea of a seed and a shoot, or a bud, the beginning of efflorescence and the stem resource for an expansion. Until Subbarama Dikshitar's time (he published Sangita Sampradaya Pradarshini in 1904), it was usually called pallava.

T S Parthasarathy has called this a mere ‘guess’, but perhaps this playful derivation could be understood more as a helpful invention, a mnemonic or pedagogical device, rather than literal linguistic etymology or erroneous speculation.

Sydney Murugan Temple

Sydney Thurka Amman Temple

Melbourne Siva Vishnu Temple - The temple is a culmination of years of planning by the Hindu Society of Victoria, formed in 1982. The temple site at Carrum Downs comes close to the scriptural injunctions for auspiciousness: closeness to sea and river confluences. It is situated not far from the picturesque beaches of Port Phillip Bay, and the pretty lakes around the Patterson river. The worship is centred around Shiva and Vishnu the presiding deities of two dominant streams in the Hindu ritualistic tradition. The temple attempts to bring the two streams together and provide a synthesis.
