I recently purchased an iPhone 4S in India. It has international keyboard for Hindi language.
But is there any way to add Tamil language to the list?

As you can read on the iPhone support pages, Tamil isn't supported (yet) by the iPhone:
English (U.S.), English (UK), Chinese - Simplified (Handwriting, Pinyin, Stroke), Chinese - Traditional (Handwriting, Pinyin, Zhuyin, Cangjie, Stroke), French, French (Canadian), French (Switzerland), German (Germany), German (Switzerland), Italian, Japanese (Romaji, Kana), Korean, Spanish, Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Cherokee, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Emoji, Estonian, Finnish, Flemish, Greek, Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Portuguese (Brazil), Romanian, Russian, Serbian (Cyrillic/Latin), Slovak, Swedish, Thai, Tibetan, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese
Although, iOS5 is capable of displaying Unicode Tamil email and text.
But you'll have to use 3th party apps like IndicNotes which will allow you to type Tamil. Then you can share your note with SMS, Email,... Not the most ideal solution, but you'll be able to type Tamil on your iPhone.
