Tamil T-shirt   There are so many reasons why quirky Tamil T-shirts are doing well these days, whether it is the increasing love for the language or adding a local flavour to one’s wardrobe. With more number of youngsters getting into this business, it is evolving from being just a fashion statement into a movement with everything from movie dialogues to Subramania Bharati’s poetry being flaunted on colourful, contemporary tees.Gopinath Ravirajan, Lenin Raj and Yuvaraj share a passion and a flair for Tamil and decided to build a brand ‘For Tamils by Tamils’. And so, www.ilavam.com was born, and the founders began using Bharathidasan and Bharati’s verses on T-shirts. “Tees with quotes create a huge buzz especially with the youth,” says Gopinath. “We take lines from Tamil literature that have the ability to inspire.” They also undertake field trips to get more information on Tamil history.A similar love for Sangam literature and poetry led Arasi Arul, who runs Zha Café, to start her own line of Thirukkural and Bharati T-shirts. “My brother and I are fans of Bharati’s poetry. We can recite a lot of his poems and we have put some of our favourite lines on the tees. As for the Thirukkural, we chose it because it is still relevant,” she says.Focusing on the lighter side of life is Dude Tamizha and their tees, which they sell out of a Tee Kadai in Citi Centre. They wanted to explore humour through the Tamil language. “Tamizhans are well-known for their sense of humour,” says J. Senthilnathan, co-founder. Their T-shirts reflect lifestyle, art and culture in this part of the country.A blend of the serious and the funny, the >www.6000024.com website, specialises in merchandise such as Tamil movies, books and tees. Started by brothers Vignesh and Karthick Annamalai, their tees with messages in Tamil have got good response from youngsters.These tees, say the entrepreneurs, help people connect to the language and instil a sense of pride. “Tees with Bharati’s image and verses are very popular,” says Arasi.Adds Vignesh, “T-shirts with phrases such as idukkan varungaal (when in distress, laugh) and Un inmai unarugiren (I miss you, coined by lyricist Madhan Karky) are a huge hit.”For Dude Tamizha, the focus is on catering to something trendy and witty. “Tees like Kaaka Vadai, Idhuvum Kadanthu Pogum (this too shall pass) and Petromax Light are popular.
