    Few people are happy celebrating Ravaanleela but they are not even aware that Ravana was not a south Indian.

    He was great leader in Dravidian soil, done some good for development of Tamil language too. But his government along with his family person in is party done so many corruption, and also done nothing to help eelam war for Tamil people in Sri Lanka.

    Those northies who are still under the upper caste dominance should know, TN universities have more share of SC/ST/OBC students than any other state in India. It’s the same situation for doctors, high court lawyers/judges and government officials. In 1970s, TN fared almost equally to WB and MP. Thanks to Kalignar and MGR Dravidian politics Tamils have got out of poverty better than any other state and is the no.1 in HDI and second in GDP.

    Learning an additional language is as asset, much so if it is a nation's official language. I believe this will benefit the people of TN when the language barrier is narrowed. While at central level, BJP is proving to be a corrupt free govt, l am sure Modi will have a Tamil to helm the govt if it comes into power in TN. Failing which, the ballot box comes around in 5 years time. Aren't the people of TN done with Dravidian politics?
