This chronology of major events in the existence of the Tamil League is important as a reminder that  miracles do not happen in a twinkling but are the result of forceful determination, selfless dedication and sustained efforts.

 The more so, when we take account of the fact that, though it had to change its premises five times since its creation in Desforges Street before leaving definitely Port-Louis for Reduit, it has in no way deviated from its main missions – to the pride and benefit of the Tamil Community and the country at large.
