Awards

Dr.Annamalai Chettiyar deeply moved by the deplorable state of affairs of Tamil Isai which has a long tradition, had attempted to regain the glory of Tamil Isai by establishing the Tamil Isai Sangam. His lofty aim in this regard was ably supported by the great Tamil Scholars like Dr.R.K.Shanmugam Chettiyar, Kalki, Chakravarthy, Rajagopalachary and Peraringnar C.N. Annadurai. The recognition of the Sangam is evident from the support and patronage extended by the Chennai Iyal, Isai, Nadaga Mantram and the Sangeetha Nadaka Academy based in Delhi and the Ministry of Culture at Delhi.

The Sangam had the privilege of being honored by the towering personalities like Dr.Babu Rajendra Prasad, the first President of Independent India, followed by successive Presidents of India namely Dr.S.Radhakrishnan, Dr.Jahir Husai and Dr.A.P.J. Abldul Kalam by their gracious visit to the Sangam.
