In 2017, Baheerathy Kumarendiran started to work on a book project in the topic of “how Tamil language education was developed in Norway by Tamils who migrated to Norway“. This project was started as an independent and private project to document the local history of Tamils in Norway.
With this background, on 22. April 2020 the NLI contacted Baheerathy Kumarendiran regarding re-activating the project on Norwegian-Tamil culture and history at lokalhistoriewiki.no. NLI’s invitation to Norwegian-Tamil culture and history project was made known to the Tamils living in Norway on 08th July 2020 through the Facebook page of “நோர்வே வாழ் தமிழர் ஆவணம் – Archive of Tamils in Norway“. This is an open invitation to all Tamils in Norway to become a contributor in creating the Norwegian local Tamil history.
