First Tamil E-Zine from Colombo

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 March 2000, 04:27 GMT]
The inauguration ceremony for the first internet-based Tamil magazine "Sooriyan.com," to be published weekly under the editorship of Poopalapillai Seevakan, took place at Sugathadasa Sports Hotel, Colombo, yesterday afternoon.

Deputy Minister of Post and Telecommunications, Mr. M.L.A.M. Hisbulla was the Chief Guest at the ceremony.

Several Tamil Members of Parliament, Authors, Intellectuals and media personnel participated in the event.

Sources close to the magazine organizers said that the internet magazine, published every Wednesday, will bring the Tamil culture to the outside world with its coverage of art, politics, and essays, and will have a children's section that will include epics like Mahabharata.

Popular Tamil dramas such as 'Thaniyaatha Thaaham,' and widely acclaimed poetry from authors such as 'SOlaikilli' will also figure prominantly within the pages of the magazine, sources added.
