தமிழ்த் தேசியம்

"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

Tamils - a Trans State Nation : United Kingdom

Tamil Performing Arts Society
- Tamil Drama Festival - 2001-

"...The 'avant garde' Tamil theatre movement which saw birth in Jaffna, but found expression in Colombo in the mid 70s has now come of age, interestingly enough in the Tamil expatriate world of the West. Although there were a few other talented pioneer producers too on the Colombo stage, the credit for sustaining the modern stage tradition, and carrying it from the East to west and from country to country goes to K.Balendra and the Tamil Performing Arts Society. The Society is rich  in talent: an imaginative director/producer in Balendra and a versatile and gifted actress in Anandarani backed by a team of players like Krishnaarajah and Dharshini Gaaneshapillai..." (S.Sivanayagam, Hotspring, 1998)
