I know that Nee Enna velai seyyara or neenge enna seyyarangla means 'What occupation/work do you perform/do?"

But, when it comes to saying (for example) "I did a 3 year BSc in Hyderabad" will it be correct to say "Naan moon varsham Bsc Hyderabadil/l padichirkein?"

moonu is the correct colloquial version for Moondru (Three).

padichirikein - I have studied.
padichaen - I studied.


Your sentence is correct if you wanted to say, " I have done a 3 year study in Hyderabad."

However, if you want a simple past tense (not the past perfect as above), then you should say, "Naan moonu varsham BSc Hyderabadil padichaen."


Minor correction:
neenge enna velai seyyareenga means 'What occupation/work do you perform/do?"

The error is with the agreement of the verb with the subject.

avanga enna velai seyyaraanga means " What job are they doing?"

Not sure. I am curious myself.

Are they interested in Tamil music and intrigued by Tamil language/literature?

Arasu, in this context there are Thiruvalluvar quotations in TN buses, an example of literature in a public space. Can you think of any other example, of the govt of TN popularising its literature/writers in public spheres? For example, naming things after famous writers?

Thiruvalluvar statue in Kanyakumari.

Valluvar Kottam in Chennai,

Statues along Marina beach for people who contributed to Tamil, such as-

Kamban, Caldwell Pope, Bharathi, Bharathidasan, Kannagi, etc.

Kamban vizha (festival/celeberation),

are some of the things that come to my mind.
