Tamil New Year

Tamil New Year

‘Puthandu’ or better known as Tamil New Year is the celebration of the first day of the Tamil New Year in mid-April by Tamils in Malaysia. In Malaysia, this day means a new year following the Hindu calendar. Unlike Deepavalli, Tamil New Year is celebrated modestly by most of the Malaysian Tamils. In conjunction with Tamil New Year, Intercultural Club of SEGi College Subang Jaya held a celebration to promote the Tamil culture to the other Malaysians and most importantly the international students. The event was kicked off with the performances by the students at about 10.30 in the morning at the Ground Floor. Our principle Dr. Lisa and lecturers were there to witness history in making as this was the first time, celebration like this held in SEGi College Subang Jaya. Later in the evening, 45 students from different ethnicity went to Batu Caves to understand more about this auspicious Tamil celebration. This event was also joined by four lecturers from SEGi College Subang Jaya. Students from Kazakhstan, Maldives, Libya, Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia joined this event. Indeed, this celebration was an educational celebration for the non-Malaysian students as well as the Malaysian students. Join us today in SEGi College Subang Jaya to experience the culture and the diversity of the world.
