Thai Pongal is a harvest festival that depicts the Tamil culture of showing gratitude to all that rendered help in our life, no matter how small the help was. Thanksgiving is an important aspect of Thai Pongal. Thai Pongal is always a special for JaffnaHindu.Org Web Team too. All its importance events happened on a Pongal day.
Jaffna Hindu Web Team is excited to announce the decennial year of the JaffnaHindu.Org. JaffnaHindu.Org was launched in 2003. During the last ten years it had faced many challenges in continuing its service to Jaffna Hindu community. There were technology changes too. It somehow survived the turbulent times and celebrating the 10th anniversary this year. To celebrate the decennial year and to incorporate the new features made available with the technological advancement, the Jaffna Hindu web site is redesigned to the core, and being launched on the 2013 Pongal day as an all in one web portal of Jaffna Hindu with a refreshing new look & feel with added features.
The web portal is designed to be a central source of the school and its community. The Jaffna Hindu portal facilitates Hinduites worldwide to get to know about the happening in the school and its community around the word by publishing events, festivals, OBA events & activities, Electronic version of Young Hindu and OBA Magazines, obituaries and many more. It has over 10 year’s record of college and community activities in the form of news archives, photos, videos, diary etc. It also keeps a record of college and OBA history. The Kerni that was introduced in 2010 is also incorporated in to this portal. The Kerni is a hindu database of students, teachers, old boys, OBA, clubs, past teachers and principals.
