Literature  in everyday life connects individuals with larger truths and ideas in a society. Since ages, literature has taken on a more comprehensive role of mirroring society. Recent studies shows that human mind when engaged in reading or listening to literary fiction eases the tensions in muscles and the heart by reducing the stress levels.
 
With this perspective MNTS along with the help of interested members formed a literary group.
 
In the kick off meeting, it was decided to delve into ‘Panchaali Sabatham’ written by Subramaniya Barathiyaar.
 
Needless to say, it was a fantastic experience for this group reading this piece of the epic as a group. This approach adds a fresh dimension of understanding there by enabling the individuals appreciate the richness and wealth of Tamil.
 
The group meets on a fortnightly basis either in person or over phone.
