Truth about Tamil Nadu

I posted the following to a thread posted in the Tamil Nadu. It can get removed because it goes against the popular perception. So I am posting my response here:

" This kind of feel good mindset arises from ignorance. This poster probably is not on the receiving end of hatred. As a result he thinks it is absent in TN. Hatred is very much present in TN, like everywhere else. It is just that it is not focused in the same direction as that in North India. The poster does not realize that North India is not a homogenous entity either, which arises from ignorance. Based on what he writes and that of others in the state, for them North means an Aryan dominated, Hindu state that is arrogant and wants everyone to speak in Hindi, their mother tongue. They have been fed this simplistic world view by decades old Dravidian ideology which was created on the basis of hatred. Before I go further, let me say clearly that I am not a Brahmin. I am an educated Tamil who has lived in other parts of India a lot and abroad and have spent time learning the truth for myself. That truth has convinced me that the Dravidian parties have created a population of ignorant and braindead population that thinks all root cause of evil in the state was due to Brahmins and that Brahmins are Aryans who came from the North, therefore all Hindus in the North are Brahmin supporting Hindus, to which the BJP and RSS belong, and they impose Hindi on Tamils and try to dominate them. With this simplistic logic the Dravidian parties have managed to fool these people into hating Brahmins, hating North Indians (mind you they cannot tell the difference between the Punjabi or Marathi or Bengali or Bihari) and hating Hindi and as a culmination of all this, hating the BJP. Hatred is absent in TN? Who says that?

If one wonders how all this came about, one has to look into history carefully and they will realize that all this suspicion of others and fear of Tamil being destroyed and the evil Brahmin conspiracy is a concoction developed by Christian missionaries who have worked meticulously over 150 years to create divide and widen them in various ways. The missionaries realized that Brahmins were the root of Hindu community and so long as they are there, their conversion of the locals to their faith is going to be hard. Even the lowest caste man refused to convert and he was willing to do so if the scholarly Brahmin did the

I'm the reason TikTok got banned... my bad

So, you’ve probably heard that the social media app called TikTok has been banned by the United States government. The ban has yet to take official effect, and the whole thing is honestly pretty complicated.

The reason most sources have cited it because the app is Chinese designed and has been implicated with various breaches of privacy and illegal collection of data. This whole thing is basically a proxy, cyber war between paranoid factions if you ask me, but honestly, it doesn’t even matter. Now, as rewarding and constructive as it can be to discuss politics on the internet with strangers, I’d rather not go down that path right now. It’s not the real reason it got banned anyways; I am… at least I think I am.

I imagine half of you reading this right now probably hate me already, but please just hear me out. Feel free to lambast and or praise me in the comments if you wish, but I’m not here to make myself famous or gain any sort of clout. I’m here because something truly horrifying happened, and the world deserves to know the truth.

I was an avid user of TikTok, regularly wasting hours just browsing random videos and periodically making my own. My lawyer has recommended not sharing my username for reasons that will become evident soon enough, so sorry in advance. I had a modest following, but nothing crazy. Most of my videos involved me doing dumb little skits or filming my cats doing something funny. Never had anything big, and by all accounts it was nothing out of the ordinary.

I live with my parents, and one night I was home alone playing some Apex Legends when my bedroom door just suddenly shut. It made me jump, and I turned around to see what happened. I fully anticipated seeing my brother or another family member with a smug grin, but no one was there.

I got eliminated shortly after and got up to check the house, still a bit unnerved. My parents were away for the weekend visiting my grandma, and my brother was supposed to be staying the night at a friend’s house. I figured he must’ve come home instead, but after searching the house and calling his name, I didn’t find him.

I figured he was hiding to try and scare me, because that asshole loves to make me jump and it’s not very difficult. I finally decided to call him, only to find out he was in fact still at his friend’s house. I felt chills slither down my spine when he sent me a selfie of himself to prove it.

I thought about calling the police thinking that someone had broken in, but there

“So what did the doctor say?” Vic asked with bated breath.

Vic Stone, Dick Grayson and Gar Logan all stood around the hospital bed, in a room with rejuvenated warmth, their weary faces soothed to ones of hope. In the centre of the room, Rose Wilson (as the paperwork referred to her) lay propped up against the headboard, her skin almost as pale as her flowing, wintry hair. Her eyes were heavy, her spirit subdued and floaty, a nothing like her usual attitude.

“He wasn’t gentle,” Rose smiled, “Massive nerve damage. I’m ‘lucky to be alive’... but he says it’s nothing a shitton of physiotherapy can’t fix.”

The room lit up. Dick’s eyes flickered, a weight removed. He took a deep breath, moving away from the bed slightly and steadying himself against the bedside table. Vic smiled solemnly. But Gar, however, exploded.

“Oh my god! That’s…” he beamed, “That’s amazing! How long—?”

“Anywhere from six months to two years.” Rose seemed almost exhausted by Gar’s mass energy, and while she was saddened at the long road ahead, was much uplifted by Gar’s immediate enthusiasm.

Hours passed. Over time, the boys would slip in and out of the room, going on coffee runs or breaks for fresh air, but at every moment sure to leave at least one of them with Rose to keep her company. At one point, even Metropolis’ star reporter Clark Kent stopped by for a half hour, taking the time out of his busy day to see how Rose was doing. Tears were shed, sentiments were shared. Then, for the first time, Dick was left alone with her.

“Rose… I’m…” Dick moved over to the young girl and took her hand lightly, a tense smile on his face. Months ago, Ros
