Photos & videos from Tamil Blog camp

The Tamil blog camp made the gathering a more interesting one with the presence of intellects of the tamil language. The participants got a visual treat of the world's second longest beach the Marina, before entering into the venue.

A
warm welcome to the bloggers..

The events ... Vicky giving the intro of the event. The message is that the workshop is everybody's event and each one of the participants is an organiser. Participants made sure that they got their seat before the start of the event.

Although similar camps connected with the blogging and the like will usually witness young chaps and techies, this is a unusual one with an equal number of senior academicians making their presence to the event.
The food token with catchy words, was made sure by the organisers the it was received by each and every participant arriving at the reception.
The programme witnessed the exchange of highly useful information between the people. While the discussion on "how far the Government has implemented? " kicked off, the hall witnessed innovative sparks from persons such as Americai Narayanan (above) and the practicalities involved in implementing such policies.
