Back of a auto rickshaw, Chennai
I don’t know how to say this politely, but anyone who says Sri Lankan Tamils should go back to Tamil Nadu should go back to 1983. Sri Lankan Tamils are from here as much as anybody, as are Burghers and Muslims and, I think, anybody who chooses to settle here, including suddhas and kalu suddhas. Plus look at us. We’re an island 30km from Tamil Nadu and we’ve been able to sail or swim that far for thousands of years. You might as well ask Mahinda to go back to Tamil Nadu, or Malaysia, or China. We’re all mixed up on this island and everyone needs to chill.
Furthermore, it’s a fairly common joke to call Tamil Nadu ‘Toilet Nadu’. This is idiotic. I personally don’t trust the intelligence of anyone who writes off millions of people and a huge area of our earth. I can either accept that 66 million people are dumbasses, or one. Probability wise, it’s much more likely to be the one.
