The Why Question?
Tamil Diaspora Alliance (T.D.A) believes that as long as the Tamil people persist with a fragmented view of self, limited by existing modes of operation and varying ideologies, there will not be any significant progress made for the Tamil Nation. Therefore, our aim is to put forth and apply the innovative concept of “re-creation of self”, as the mode of future action. We will come together under a common ideology, create a united front, and act cooperatively to strengthen the collective sense of the Tamil people. We must create the necessary framework and structures to form the foundation of the Tamil Nation, put in place mechanisms to catalyze nation-building, and subsequently act to empower, protect and develop it. In addition, we must take the necessary steps to prevent future displacement of individuals from their native villages and promote resettlement initiatives to help families reestablish themselves in their ancestral lands. T.D.A. is a platform that aims to unite the Tamil people, beyond organizational or geographical divides, in order to protect and enhance the unique identity and origins of the Tamil Diaspora.
Unite the Tamil people of the diaspora, irrespective of organizational or geographical divides, in order to engage in meaningful activity to educate, promote, and enhance the identity of the Tamil Diaspora and promote Tamil language, culture, and heritage. Collaborate with the Tamil people of the homeland and constructively engage on the international stage, in order to protect and voice the will of the Tamil Nation.
The unity of today will breed the innovation of tomorrow. Birds that fly together, break winds, and reach distant destinations.
