|This website is founded to host the postings of the Agathiyar Yahoo Discussion
Group in search-able UNICODE format.
The Agathiyar Yahoo Discussion Group is the brain-child of Dr.S.Jayabarathi of
Malaysia who is known in the Web as "Dr.JayBee'.
It was founded by him in August, 1998. It started with a small membership of 29
and has grown to more than 800 members. It started off as an off-shoot of
Tamil.Net which was founded by Thiru. Bala Pillai of Sydney.
This is a selective discussion group which deals with topics in the fields of
Tamil/Indian Culture, Arts and Science, Traditions, Language and Ancient
Literature, Religion and Mysticism, History and ProtoHistory, Futureology, and
It is a bilingual group although the major portion of the discussion is in Tamil.
Dr.S.Jayabarathi conducts the affairs of Agathiyar which is looked after and
guided by a Panel of Five called 'Aimperungulzu'. This is in keeping with the
ancient tradition of the Tamils. The inspiration behind this undaunted undying
effort happens to be Mrs. Jayabarathi.
This group is named after Agathiyar who is the Patron Rishi/Siddhar of the
Tamils. The Aimperungulzu hails from the lineage of Agathiyar.
