In Sri Lanka there is a Tamil Literature magazine called 'Gnanam'  has been published since 2000 June. This is a monthly magazine and always came on time, within the first week of each month. This month, September 2008, it touches a milestone; 100th issue.
This issue coming as a 'Special issue on Sri Lankan Tamil Modern Literature' and it contains 100 authors' more than 100 articles. All the essays in this issues are represent about Sri Lankan Modern Tamil Literature and efforts. Many Proffessors from all over then Universities in Sri Lanka have written on this.
This issue has 272 A4 pages :-) As far as I know, this is the first issue in Sri Lankan history that comes with this many pages on a context...
Last few days, I was doing proof reading for this issue... Enjoyed.. Yesterday I started to look at it around morning 6.00am and worked on it till today morning 3am... almost continuous 21 hours worked on in it without boring...
Also I am very happy to say that, I have worked for an issue that can not be forgetable in Sri Lankan Tamil Literature.
More than that, I am very proud to say that, one of my essay also included in this 'Gnanam's 100th issue - A Special issue on Sri Lankan Tamil Modern Literature' :-)
