There, you are again going in the wrong direction. No! I am not here
to comment on the bifurcation and related issues.
Rather, I am here to put forward the views of people residing in
other states, on them. Personally, I too am an outsider to these
states with my heart residing in them.
And with too many north Indians as my friends, it becomes very easy

OK. So let’s start with the point that tops all the charts.
South Indian people out there. No people. Let’s be very clear in

Yes, we are much disciplined but we do enjoy a lot.
Yes, we are well-educated and so you are.
Yes, we are family loving because it is what that made us what we
Yes, we are down to earth and simple and that makes us stand out.
Yes, we are goal-oriented because without that our life is a waste.
Yes, we are movie freaks because we worship art.

That’s it. Thank you so much for bearing me through all this that I
I wish this showed, at a least a bit, that how much I love my language
and everything related to it.
