hi! actually it is not your problem. it is human problem. people tend to judge other people on the basis of what they are being told. so it is just a normal human tendency. i ask you to have a tour in north. and then judge people if they are good or not.

leave aryans aside they are largely good people. lets talk about Tamils and kannadigas . why you people mistreat kannadigas in our own land. you migrate to Karnataka and talk in tamizh with us even when you know we speak kannada. get off with low life mentality. you are messing the good name of kannadigas. we are not from madras and you are not from Karnataka. so better keep your a@@ away off our land.

you want to have one on one with him. don't be hyper. it is a discussion. and he may be having some prejudices about north indians/aryans.
but why you are jumping guns on indian Tamils. they are not bad people like other. they are our own people. and about language. it is just a simple tool for communication between people. do you know dumb people communicate with gestures (sign language). all languages are man made. i hope one day we will have tamil as official along with english and hindi. then we all will be able to integrate better. one great country called INDIA.

If you have a Tamil Colour then you have to be proud that you got some Indigenous Skin Colour on you.

If you look like Tamil Features, then you must be proud that you have some Indigenous Feature.

Be Proud about you have something for your Mother Land. The Rest(Arabic or Aryan or British or Chinese Blood) is just the Curse which urge you to fight with your Indigenous 'Side' which you call as 'Untouchables' or 'Low Caste'.

You are not Evil; just Indian(a name is given by British Master to His slave land)

Have you considerd all the voilence that had occured in North India. The Kashmir uprising, punjab insuurection, tribal voilence, voilence towards dalit population and all the other countless shit that happens in North India. So before you start your racist cr*p on the tamils it is better to sort other numerous problems in india. I don,t know whether your are a Banda trying to create trouble in this forum or a racist ars*ole attacking the tamils

LOL. So Rohan is Lankan when he wants to take cover, and he is Tamil when he is spreading his proud Tamil separatist filth? What a bunch of morons you are?!!! Same thing -when you Tamil separatists get caught for drug trafficking or other criminal activities abroad, you are suddenly Lankans, and start crying for help from Lanka and the socalled Sinhalese govt. Otherwise you are all proud Tamils wanting a separate Tamil homeland.

Rohan and the rest of you Tamil separatists have nothing rational to say, than these fringe theories. Writing the same facking trash, day in and day out won't make them true.

Tamil is just one of hundreds of other languages in India and even people so close to the Tamil country/Tamilnadu, like the Kannadigas don't even want to hear your stupid theories. LOL.

You can try to bully the Sinhalese with backing from your fellow Tamils in Tamilnadu - but don't try to bully the Indians, they will put you in place, and trash your theories. Even bullying the Sinhalese will never result in anything, as you have experienced already.....

oh man! so much of negativity. plz be polite. we are from a culture where we respect everyone. it is sad part that some things went wrong during the evolution of our society. but what happened is bygone. and let by gone be bygones. rohan is not a bad person. he is just a victim of wrong situations. suppose he was born in America, he would not have even checked what some srilankans are posting in india forum. so people are just victim of situations.

one interesting fact: differences in thoughts can lead to better solutions to problems but same differences can also lead to conflicts. then wat to do... plz post your thoughts on this.

rohan please man don't be so narrow minded. skin color does not count. but your character does count. do not try to act like whites. you are degrading yourself by such thoughts. you said "shiv is love". it is sad that you didn't understand what is the real meaning of it.

hey man it sure is a sad part of north. several episodes were really terrible. but have you considered the causes of these. instead of mocking north, you could have studied what is a real problem in north.

Kashmir: is it really indian part??? history tells us that it always was a separate state from india just like srilanka. is it a part of india. not at all. what is happening in kashmir is by efforts of pakistan. so will you blame north indians for kashmir??? are north indians involved in kashmir problem... where do you get this???? better blame Govt of India.

punjab insurrection: better blame nazi Indira Gandhi. She was a woman with some real nasty ambitions. She wanted to bring pakistan under indian control just like lanka. she funded militants (both khalsa and LTTE) on one hand she wanted to bring pakisthan under Indian dominion and on other wanted to capture lanka through LTTE. And everyone knows what all happened under her rule. she was authoritarian. so will you blame a simple man on a street of north india for everything she did. get life man. really!

violence towards dalit population: here i agree that some really bad people try to oppress dalits. agreed. but this happens only in rural india. in cities things are changing. we need some kind of self respect movement. but you know Periyar's self respect movement was centered to racial lines and not a true movement. He too ended up with Tamil Race.
Though his philosophy of self-respect has several good points like encouragement of rational thinking. but his anti-brahmin polices resulted in people burning and killing brahmins. so it really was a failed movement. he too showed a nazi side of his own. so should others blame tamils for his anti-brahmin policies which resulted in so much communal hatred and riots.
violence towards dalit population is really a sorrow social evil. I believe only education and rational view point can change things. so encourage education and rational thinking.

other countless shit that happens in North: it happens in all parts of india (in while world). this shit happens in south india as well. what to do about it? as long as we all are humans it will continue to happen. humans are not perfect. this is why humans need rules and regulations. some religions have carved rules for followers and others have constitution for it.

The Vainawa Hindu Caste System is the Most Evil Racism in the world. Buddhism, some Islamic Sects and Jainism are all got the Caste System among themselves. Why, even Shiva Devotees also behave proudly when they call themselves from High Caste. In Saivam, the Equality is the main and core Dharma, but 'that' evil has been contaminated even in the High Thoughtful Societies.

Anyone can talk about Racism, but not People from Indian Subcontinent(South Asia) can talk about Racism as they got the worst evil of Caste System in their Mindset, even in their Heart.

From my writings, you have all the Right to call me 'Narrow Minded' and I am sorry for what I wrote.

Still, If anyone can look down the Indigenous Skin people as 'low' with Hateness in their Heart, then what I wrote is the 'Correct Medicine' for their Brain and Heart.

You are wrong here. Since 1956, one Lankan political party leader SWRD Bandaranayake wanted to bring 'Singhela Only' policy meaning everything is in Singhela Language and Lanka is for only Singhela people. Since then, the Buddhist Hirarchy started to preach to hate the Indigneous Tamil speaking population and Muslim Population. 1958,1977,1983 were the 3 major genocidal Communal Riots carried out by the Monks to kill the Indigenous People.

After 1983 riots, Indra Gandhi has decided to help the Tamil speaking Indigenous People; even that one Tamilnadu Chief Minister M G Ramachandran asked her to do so.

Indra Gandhi was a good woman, leader, humaine and Clever.

This is typical of indian people. You are in india and you get information about your own people from a forigen source that is thousands of miles away. Is it not better to get information by doing your own research and asking the people of your own country how they feel.If brittania encyclopedia tells you who your mother or father is would you go with that.

It is probably that person wrote had such a personality.

In Mahabaratha, there is a story to explain about the people's personality.

Once, Beeshmar asked Thuriyothanan(Tamil prononciation) to go into the village and find a 'Good Person'. He went to search and came back and said "Oh Grandpa, there are no Good People".

Then, Beeshmar asked Dharman to go and find a 'Bad Person'. Dharman went into the village and came back and said "Oh Grandpa, there are no Bad People".

Good people see Good people or even they can make Good People.

of course it is really sad state that people look down others based on race, color, body structure, language, nationalities and even religion.
just see how people in USA are divided. they are divided based on the racial lines. some are Latinos, some whites, some blacks, some orientals, some Hispanics, some Asians (paki, chink, tard-skin, ABCD, dothead......., yellow ape and what not ). so even they are divided. world is divided into nations. divisions is cause of disbalance in harmony. but division can also lead to harmony... will post on this too but not now.

you mentioned Sanathana Dharma. though i don't like to talk about Sanathana Dharma as a whole, since i myself is not educated in all philosophies of it.
the core of our belief/philosophy (not religion) is that everything belongs to supreme lord and he is in everuthing. hence we must respect everyone... every being. here being can be any living thing. from here comes the concept of harmony. how?? harmony between everything is essential else whole universe will collapse. so shiva is our representation of universal harmony. shiva is creator, balancer and destroyer (this is religious theory to represent the fact of life). from here every other philosophy emerges and it then elaborates. i don't know if you believe Sanathana Dharma as a religion or philosophy. dharma is not religion. what is tamil equivalent of dharma (searched net but on-line Tamil dictionary doesn't show many words)
what will you say in tamil: Christian religion. in sanskrit and its derivatives do not have an equivalent word for religion. so religion is called dharma. but dharma is way to do something ( or more specifically way of leading life).

hey i don't have much time to spend on net so i'm leaving discussion here. will be back if i get some free time. may be day after tom.

good day
and enjoy file( its really really short)
