FYI: My Dear Non- Tamilians

I need to make some things clear. They are, inter alia, the following:

i) All Tamilians do not wear veeboothi* on their forehead all the time;
ii) All Tamilian women do not wear silk sarees/ flowers on their plaits/ buns;
iii) Tamilians do not move around with oiled hair all the time;
iv) Yes we love Rajnikanth, but that does not mean we only appreciate Jhakass movies. Many of our movies are so good that they can kick the bollywood movies' pompous a****;
v) No, not all Tamilians are good in Maths and Accounts;
vi) Dont even start me with the dark skintone, which I must say is something the Westerners are dying to acquire with their tanning beds and lotions;
vii) Contrary to our neighbours up North, Tamilians have better idea about the Southern, Northern, Eastern and Western states;
viii) Yes maybe Tamilian names are longish, but isnt that common in many other races? In any case, whats your problem with long names, are you even going to use of person's full name all the time?
ix) No, not all Tamilians are trained in Bharathanatiyam/ Carnatic Music;
x) Tamilians eat curd rice for a reason. It is the most soothing food to eat when it is warm and humid. How that becomes something worthy of a joke is something I fail to understand.

Btw, The Dirty Picture was so bad that I wanted to cry. Someone told me the movie was very depressing, but now I understand why. Such a badly made movie! Silk Smitha must really be turning in her grave.

*Veeboothi- a white ash mark worn by men and women on their forehead
