What started off as a hobby from posting vintage images of Tamil women and art, founders @meera__silk and @smrithi_ have now created one of the largest creative communities for the Diaspora Tamil – @oru.mayil.

Oru Mayil is a global community and digital archive documenting Tamil history, identity, creativity and more, whilst focusing on taboo issues ranging from sexuality to mental health. It has allowed Tamils worldwide to connect with one another, discuss and debate topics, and share their experiences and creativity through poetry, photography, and art.

Oru Mayil will be launching its online magazine very soon.
