English & Tamil

While no one in his or her right senses will oppose the study of English in Tamil Nadu, it is also true that the people of the State have been indifferent to Tamil. No one can question the motive of those opposing the latest trend of giving an English title to every third Tamil film produced. Nor can anybody object to the appeal for prominence to Tamil in the name-boards of shops. When earnest appeals go unheeded, agitations follow.

I want to tell the leaders of parties in Tamil Nadu, who are using Tamil as a political weapon again, they can no longer cheat people by inciting regional chauvinism. Such short-sightedness of politicians will make Tamil Nadu the most isolated State.
