வலைபதிவர்கள் சந்திப்பு!

I never expected that I would meet those Tamil bloggers in Erode. It came as a surprise to see and speak with them in person!! Tamil is the only Dravidian language that has more blogs of its kind! As an online marketing researcher, I was able to tell them how their data are useful in marketing field!! I am looking forward that I could also write in Tamil in the future!!

Does the word "Love" mean "Kadhal" in Tamil?

"I love you" is the common terminology used to express the love between two lovers. Love is used in wide term in English. A person expresses his love to his lover by saying "I love you", the same sentence is used to express the love for mother and father or anybody else. "Kadhal" in Tamil is used in very narrow way to express the feelings between two people, who think they love each other, but I don't think, love and kadhal mean the same thing. English doesn't have any equivalent to "Kadhal" in Tamil. It is something like, how they do not have any separate words for "Periyappa, Chithappa, Chithi, Athai and Mama, the same way they do not have separate word for "Kadhal" in English. No one says "Naan unnai Kadhalikaren" towards his mother, whereas in English, "I love you" can be used to express the love between two lovers as well as towards parents. So, it obviously shows that they do not have the exclusive word "kadhal" in their language. I don't know, who equaled the English love with Tamil kadhal. They are two different words, mean two different feelings. Tamil Kadhal is used by peopel who have special feelings towards something, that special feeling is more than love, it often involves physical attraction too. kadhal is mixture of more than love and lust. "Love" is pure love, it may involve physical attraction or not. So, Tamil kadhal is very different than the wide term of Love in English.

India's Vengence towards Tamils!!

Tamil Tigers killed Rajiv Gandhi, former Prime Minister, how India is going to reconcile it? But the fact is, it achieved reconciliation by killing innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka.
Just for one soul of Rajiv Gandhi killed millions of Tamils!!
India voted against Tamil people in UN Security Council. What a great disappointment to people in Tamil Nadu, who think that they are part of India?!!!
How India could vote against Tamils? When Israelis killed people in Gaza, India showed their opposition, but why for Tamils, the same spirit is not there? It kept silent!!
India should have saved the innocent lives of Tamil, but didn’t want to do it, just to revenge for the murder of Rajiv Gandhi.
When a Sikh guy is killed in Austria, Dr. Manmohan, prime minister of India, here expresses his solidarity, but does not even care the millions of Tamils life in Sri Lanka?
India, what have you in store for my Tamil people? What do you give us as one of your parts? Only betrayal and the death of millions of Tamils?
Do you care the Tamil girls who are raped everyday by Sinhalese military men?
Hindi chauvinist, think about your Tamil brethren who are in the custody of Lankan military as war prisoners!!

Reality about vegetarian food!

I hear people say that eating meat will make you obese, but I wonder whether it is true or not?!!
Reasons:
The big animals of elephant and giraffe are vegetarians.
Most of my vegetarian friends are obese!!
Chinese and Japanese eat more pork but look skinnier than fatty Indians, who are vegetarians!!
I do not believe the nutrition facts given in books; rather I believe what I see!!
They also say that consuming meat will increase the appetite for sex
India has more population than other meat-eating countries. Do you think Indians bore baby without any sexual inducement?
Americans are more obese because of junk food-lots of fries and carbonated drinks

Sri Lankans!! Please think about the dead civilians of your country!!

Not only Rajapakse, the Sinhalese are very cruel to the Tamil minority there. They all are happy when thousands of civilians are killed. They do not care Tamil people. They are the biggest liars!! They kill civilians at the same time they will say they are operating rescue mission!! How a government can behave worst than a terrorist organization? Rajapakse will not save Tamils, rather he would kill them. He is the worst political leader!! I wonder this is what Buddhism teach Sinhalese!!

Sinhalese, care about your own people!! If you accept Tamils are also Sri Lankans, please stop the war, at least to save your won people!!

Why are you not allowing any media inside Sri Lanka? because to prove you are the worst people in the world by not allowing independent journalists!!!

Lanka's fight with Tamil Nation!

"Lanka as a nation fails to protect its own citizen" - a wrong statement!! Lanka is not having civil war, but it is fighting against the neighboring country of Tamil Eelam. It is well known that no country would throw bombs on its own citizen, when Lanka does that we have suspicious whether Lanka considers Eelam as its own part. They do not care about Tamil people. They are having war with Tamil country, in which they are winning. Tamilians are losing the battle because of the lack of support from within and others. Lankans do not care if Tamilians are starving to death in "No Fire Zone", because it is not part of their country. They say it is ethnic war between Tamils and sinhalese, but no Tamils were given opportunities to negotiate. No Tamil envoy was there!! Mukerjee-what does he know about Tamilians, neither Sonia Gandhi nor any other central ministers who comment on the issue! They are not Tamilians, so it is obvious that they will not support Tamils. They are not even worthy to negotiate the issue. India does not bother about non-Hindi speaking Indians. They only care about their language of Hindi. I am being Indian, what can I expect from a Hindi speaking government to my Tamil people? I am a stranger when I go to Delhi, because none of them speak my language. They don't even know how Tamil letters look like? Why is this partiality? I always had problem in the capital of my own country - Delhi. My capital does not reflect anything of my language or culture!! Hindi speaking people should be good enough to treat rest of the Indians as their fellow citizen by learning their languages. How other state people are learning Hindi, in that way, they can also learn other Indian languages as a matter of choice on their own. Will they do that and bring unity in India? Will they learn their mother tongue, any other Indian language and English?

Tamil Nation

Languages perish when they do not have their own country. Each language should have its own country. The countries are segmented according to their languages. Tamil may perish soon when it loses its countries. Those days we had Tamil countries like Cheran, Cholan and Pandiyan. But the sad thing is that they always fought each other. They were not united, so all the kingdoms fell down. I don't think so that people would have been happy, when Madurai is fighting with Trichy or Coimbatore. British reformed us by giving education to all communities of people. By the time they left, all Tamil kingdoms were almost perished and we turned ourselves to democratic way, which is the best way compared to those war days of Tamil kings. But what are we going to do to restore those sangam days? As those kingdoms perished Tamil will also perish?

Stop Pressing the Seed of Tamils!!

Man is a social animal. They live in groups and they cannot survive alone, so that they can reproduce all the seasons throughout a year, which is uncommon among other animals that mate only particular season in a year's time.

To conquer or suppress other groups, one group needs to kill other groups that is what happening throughout the evolution of mankind. Who kills more, wins the war!! The sad thing is, it still continues in the world now, especially in Sri Lanka, where Sinhalese majorities kill minority Tamils.

Lanka is a land that is connected with Tamil Nadu by shallow water. Sea separated Tamils, so few lives in Lanka, and the majority lives in Tamil Nadu. There are some other ethnic group lives in Lanka, called Sinhalese, they would have migrated from Orissa and their inhabitant in island is still a question.

When a person is killed, so many die along with him. Do you know how? One couple can multiply in few years. This is what bothers Sinhalese people. They kill as many as they can, so that they can keep control of Tamil population in Lanka. To catch a single man, Prabhakaran, why are they killing thousands of civilians? When a majority of people do not want to live under your control, it is better to leave them alone, so that both of them can live in peace.

If you want peace, Sinhala people can learn Tamil and Tamils can learn Sinhala. Do not force one to learn your language when you are not willing to do it!!

Tamil rebels cannot keep other Tamils as hostages because, Sinhala army is showering bombs without any discrimination between troops and civilians!! They may stop shelling by the force of other people who have humanity, but not on their own!! At the bottom they do not care for Tamils which is evident!!

Have love towards your own people!!

ஆங்கிலேயர்கள் உண்மையாலுமே நம்மை அடிமை படுத்தினார்களா?

I live in India. My country is a good country and I love it!! Since India is my mother country I cannot accept everything blankly and blindly. I seek the truth.

It was depicted in school text books as if British people looted India, and took precious wealth outside of India. But the truth shows that Indians have the more black money than any other people in Swiss Bank. So, think who looted India, is it British or Indians? We look for evidences.

Evidences show that British people did so many good things to India, which was blindfolded, especially they abolished child marriage, polygamy and Sati by establishing laws. They also decentralized education to all the communities in India. But, why in the text books it is shown that they are bad people and tortured Indians in prisons? Was India really ready to attain Independence?

India had more problems in itself than created by British. India had the curse of Caste System and many superstitious beliefs. If I ask any illiterate old Indians, they don't even know that India was once under a foreign rule and got the independence. It arises question whether we were really slaves to British people as it is shown in the text books and movies.

I am sure that most politicians at the time of freedom struggle, always had the dream to go to London and get educated, if not by themselves or atleast by their families. They even studied abroad which is a common dream in India still today. They were all good in English and traveled in first class train tickets and sailed across the sea. When those people studied in foreign lands, India was fully a illiterate country. Where do they got the power and money to study in London? If their families are rich enough to sent their children to study abroad, why at least an elementary education was not even given to the people who lived in huts. If they wanted real independence they should have freed people from poverty and illiteracy. Some people from the huts went to study abroad with the scholarship from the British people, but not by any rich Indians. Those people were not even welcome by those rich freedom fighters.

So ponder, was India in British slavery?

What is Thappattai?

Thappattai is being used by Tamilians to express their feelings. It is a music instrument by ancient Tamilians. Thappattai is still in use today but rarely. I have created this blog to express my feelings towards my ancient language and other little things in my life, on the name of oldest music instrument of Tamil "Thappattai"
