Every year, December is the time when music is celebrated in Chennai. Thousands of artists perform in hundreds of sabhas. We at Tamil Heritage Trust, believe that there is more to celebrate in our heritage besides music, and want to make use of the mood and the gathering that collects from far and near. We want these rasikas to spend a few hours on other aspects of our heritage, literature, paintings, sculpture, temples etc.
