Malay boy reciting Tamil literature awes Facebook users

A video has been making rounds on Facebook, showing a young Malay boy reciting ancient literary works written in Tamil.

Called the Thirukkural, a few lines of the literature was recited by one Mohd Nor Mohd Rafe in fluent Tamil.

The one-and-a-half minute video starts off with Mohd Nor introducing himself and asking whether viewers wanted to hear him reading a Tamil book.

He then goes into reciting a few lines from the book, which he appeared to have memorised as well.

The video was shared by Elan Tamil, who is the headmaster of SJK(T) Ladang Selangor River, Bukit Rotan, a Tamil vernacular school.

It is unknown who this boy is and when this video was taken.
