Foreword from the editors


To All our nice & wise Readers of Dravida Pozhil, Vanakkam & Wishes for the upcoming Social Justice Day.

Periyar’s Birthday (Sep 17) was declared as Social Justice Day last year by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and we all took the Pledge of Social Justice. As that 1st year anniversary is fast approaching, we are eager to share with you, yet another news on a Social Justice Grand Event.

This September, on the days of 24 & 25, International Humanism Conference on Social Justice is being conducted in Toronto, Canada by Periyar International USA (PI). Along with PI, 3 other Global Organizations – Center for Inquiry Canada (CFIC), Humanist Canada (HC) & Humanist Association of Toronto (HAT) are joining hands to conduct this grand conference. Academicians, Scholars and Government Officials from all over the World - Canada, United States, Europe, Middle East, Singapore, Malaysia, India & Sri Lanka – are participating and presenting papers in this conference. The clarion call of Dravidian Model is going to ring from a Global Stage.

Introducing the Dravidian Model, not only to Tamil People, but also to the World Populace of West & East, and Benchmarking the Acts of Humanism that have grown in global lands with our own philosophies and practices, is the core aim of this conference. The humanist adages - “All Lives are born Equal” & “Every town is my town; Every human is my kin” got rooted in this Dravidian land even 2000+ years back.

The Central Theme of this Conference is Humanism & Social Justice, under which there are 10 sub themes as follows.

  • Humanism and Women’s Rights
  • Humanism in Children
  • Day to Day Rational Thinking
  • Dispelling the myth of Astrology
  • Humanist Answers to the underprivileged
  • Social Justice & Tamil History
  • Dravidian Model of Social Justice
  • Humanism in Education (free from Indoctrination)
  • Humanism in Health & Wealth
  • Humanist Answers to the Tamils & Immigrants

At this Conference, Social Justice will be celebrated, not only in speech but in action too. There is a Meal Packing event for the benefit of the impoverished children living in countries with a low human development index, and all the participants of the conference are going to lend their hands in this exercise. There is going to be a Book Fair and special book releases. From Tamil Nadu, a Team from Dravidar Kazhagam under the leadership of Aasiriyar Dr. K. Veeramani is travelling to the Conference. We wish the International Humanism Conference on Social Justice, a grand success.
