Aayaam is the Hindi Literary and Cultural Society of National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli. The idea of having such a forum was conceived by Hemant Kumar, Anirudh Roy and Rahul Gadewadikar. As an outcome of their efforts, Madhushala - an online portal on the intranet of NIT Tiruchirappalli, came into existence during 2004-05.
This portal was primarily dedicated to the people who were willing to contribute towards Hindi Literature. This literary group was the first of its kind in Tamil Nadu and the whole of South India, where Hindi is not widely spoken. The motive behind establishing Aayaam was to promote the love for Hindi in Trichy in general and NIT Trichy in particular. It provides a common platform to all the Hindi speaking people to make their voice heard on a mass scale, in form of their literary works. It is a platform for those who admire Hindi literature and want to bring forward their creativity in story writing , poem composition or any form of composition in Hindi.
This Student's Society aims at keeping the elegance of the national language, Hindi, blossoming in NITT. Having won numerous competitions outside the college, the members are brimming with confidence as they organize the Hindi literary competitions at the inter college level in the College Cultural Festival, Festember, apart from celebrating cultural events like Holi etc.
Aayaam’s website is the perfect platform to showcase one’s Hindi literary talent and interact with similar people. On the other hand, it’ll prove as the space for the Hindi lovers to read the creations the budding talents as well as other interesting articles. Once in full swing, it can become a networking site for all the Hindi lovers.
Such a forum will be one of its kind in the “world wide web” which will not only promote Hindi but also social causes in its own way. The write-ups put up on the website might be an eye-opening experience for many.
