    Please donate for Tamil Chair at Harvard University

    Harvard University is the top university in the world. To create a Tamil Chair at Harvard University, $6 million has to be donated to the Harvard University. Currently, $1.95 million has been donated, the remaining has to be donated in 500 days.

    Why is it important?

    People from all over the world can research on Tamil and publish reports.
    Reports published by Harvard university is recognized by the world, International Yoga day was proposed by the Harvard university.
    Tamil is the only classical language that does not have a chair at Harvard University. Also it is the only language to meet all rules set by the Harvard University.

    The amount is small if everyone donates, harvardtamilchair (org).

    I think donation from the Individuals would be very meager and wont suffice. The political parties in Tamil Nadu and the government itself can be approached to fund the Harvard University initiative.

    I think, with the said amount of $6 million, we can start our own university in India (Tamilnadu) that would be better than the Harvard university. We can invite Tamil scholars from around the world and carryout research on Tamil. We need not pay such a big sum for a simple chair in Harvard university.

    @K Mohan, Karunanidhi had asked the ruling government to help them. Jayalalithaa had said that her government will help but she didn't mention how much the TN government will give and she died suddenly. Many actors has also asked the people to help.

    India's 5th richest person Shiv Nadar is a Tamil, Malaysia's 2nd richest person Ananda Krishnan is also a Tamil. Sundar Pichai's salary per annum is us$150 million but his net worth is a lot more. Hope they will help.

    @Sun, our own university won't have the same status as the Harvard. Reports published by the Harvard University is valued and accepted by the UN and the world countries. Research by our own university will be ignored.

    There are around 80 million Tamils worldwide and we need only $6 million. If each person gives RS 10 then the amount is sufficient. We can also start our own university and also take action to create Tamil chairs at other leading universities.
