The Tamil Cultural Research Centre, Palakkad, organised the seminar. K.A. Rajaram, who supervised the seminar, said that Vanavil K.

Shanmughadas from Jaffna University, Sri Lanka, Rathina Vengadesan from Singapore, former MP, L.Ganesan, writer Sivashankari, Va. Ve. Su., A. Vasudevan, K. Sabath Kumar, Kavimamani Illandhai Ramasamy from Chicago, Isaikavi Ramanan, and S. Krishnaswamy were among those who spoke.
