Aruva Culture in London

A common complaint on rediff is tamils create problems wherever they go ... example vs. Karnataka, vs. Kerala, vs. AP, HINDRAF vs. Malaysia, Sri Lankan Tamils the world over, Karunanidhi, Jayalalitha, Vaiko, etc... Had this conversation today with some dost...

Dost: dei

Dost: read this

day before

Manojar: oh

Manojar: how is crime in london generally?

Manojar: ennathu???

Dost: yess

Manojar: our tamil guys illa -

Dost: not lankans

Manojar: ltte tamil guys... ceylonese?
oh ok

Dost: tamils from tamil nadu
lot of illegal immigrants are there

Manojar: madurai tirunelveli thuthukudi guys ;-)

Dost: yesss
mostly from karaikudi

Dost: they come in tourist visa
Dost: over

Manojar: what abt u?

Dost: there are many agents
dei i am a proper resident with valid permit to stay
i am paying tax and filed tax also

My theory is, greater the Tamil Nationalism/Chauvinism of the people, greater their tendency to be violent and stupid. Just look at how peaceful the people in Madras are, compared to the people in south Tamil Nadu (also include Karunanithi, Jayalalitha, Vaiko, Ramadoss, Thirumavalavan, and many more). Also, peace is a relative term :D.

Chennai Metro

With the people signing the deal for Chennai Metro, many may expect it to be the greatest thing to happen here. However, will it go the way of the MRTS - be inaccessible and underutilized in the catchment area due to poor planning?

Previously by Manojar - Chennai Local Train map

Even the Metro is for the benefit of South Madras, and tries to include some areas of west Madras, let's see how it fares.
