The books will be distributed to libraries in Singapore, as well as to leading research institutions in India, the United Kingdom, China, the United States and elsewhere.

Environmentalist Mr Subaraj Rajathurai, and educators Mr R Sivasubramaniam and Dr Ramanathan Theyvendran received the highest honours from the Singapore Ceylon-Tamil Association (SCTA). However, SCTA President Mr Jeyaseelan Karthigesu appealed for Ceylon Tamils “not to rest or take credit solely from the contributions and sacrifices of our forefathers.”
