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

Full Text of Press Release:

Welcome to Mathuram TV. The purpose of this site is to give you all the information we have on this new Tamil television service to Europe.

We are a group of Tamils, and very proud to be so. We firmly believe in our Language and Culture. We have an unmistakable faith in our Tamil Community spread around the globe, its resilience and its understanding of the need to preserve our cultural identity. We also long for the freedom and emancipation of our people back home in our beloved homeland and their right to live peacefully and enjoy at least some of the joys of life that we take for granted.

On this background, we launch two distinct television channels to the fellow Tamils in Europe. Mathuram TV will be an entertainment channel with a mix of the popular culture and appeal to our younger generation. The second channel will be launched soon and the details will be made available on Mathuram TV. This will provide you with all the infotainment you miss at present.

We have made it a priority to carry comprehensive coverage of news and events both in Tamil and English. Initially our efforts would be to get this right. News from our homelands affecting our families back home will be a priority. We are trying our very best to secure news reporters from these areas. However, we are all aware of the risks and dangers the Press and TV Reporters face in Sri Lanka. They don't have a chance! We will obtain as much news as possible from international agencies and local reporters.

The channel will also carry educational programs and special programs geared to improving the lives of the Expatriate Tamil community. We will focus on informing you about the social and administrative structures in your adopted countries; healthcare and what to expect with modern medicine; legal systems and how to ask questions to ensure your rights are respected and you meet your obligations. We want to engage, inform and and entertain you. We will also broadcast cultural and religious events of the Tamil community in your respective countries, especially where our children perform so that we encourage them and engage them so that the Tamil way of life is preserved into the future.

We are confident that we will have an exciting Tamil television service very soon and we appeal to all self respecting European Tamils to support us so that we show the world our integrity, unity and self confidence.

Our VOIP telephone system was overwhelmed with the thousands and thousands of phone calls received and shutdown. We apologise for this unfortunate problem, however, we are also overjoyed with the interest and support that you have expressed. We are making alternative arrangements for the phone system and the new phone numbers are given below -
