jaffna_1983.jpgJaffna is my beloved hometown, a town of Sri Lanka at the northern extremity of the island and it is home to Sri Lankan Tamils. It has its own culture, unique characteristic people and own building architecture. The city is known for education, hospitality, helping mind, genuine innocent people, traditional culture and pure Tamil language pronunciation. People in this city’s asset is education and they don’t ever give up their education for whatever the circumstances, situations and difficulties. The only people who speaks pure (non-mixed languages), right pronounced and grammatical TAMIL in the world:). Any foreigner who knows Tamil usually enjoys the way our people speak Tamil.
