Video clip/ photo/ written memory collection to mark Antony Rajendram’s 90th birth anniversary
Dear friends/acquaintances and family of Antony Rajendram
2022 is the year when Antony Rajendram would have turned 90 years old.
To honour him in a nice way, this year we want to start a memorial collection in memory of the first Tamil man who set foot in the history of Tamil society formation in Norway. On the birthday itself, 20th June 2022, a catablog page will be published for Antony Rajendram where information on published and unpublished materials about him will be gathered and made available.
A catablog is a weblog that provides access to catalogue information about archive collections.
In addition, in conjunction with Rajendram’s 90th anniversary, we want to put together a video. We would like to encourage you, who are then closest family or friends or acquaintances, to submit a short video clip of 30 sec. to 1 min where you tell briefly about an experience (a memory) with yourself and Antony Rajendram. This memory will help the rest of us understand what kind of man Rajendram was, and what significance he had for his acquaintances and loved ones. The video clips will be published during the year on DiasporA Tamil Archives’ website and social media.
If you do not want to make a video or think it will be too technical, we also appreciate a written memory. The written memory can have a length of 100 words (+/- 25 words). Feel free to get in touch if you want to write more than 100 words. We appreciate it if you can send photos that can be included in this collection.
The deadline for submitting a video/ photo/ written memory is 10.07.2022.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
