Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

The Demand for Dravida Nadu (1938 to 1944) in Tamil Renaissance and Dravidian Nationalism - Professor K.Nambi Arooran, Madurai Kamraj University "...the Justice Party Confederation in which E.V.R. put forward his demand for a separate Tamilnad was held at Madras in December 1938.... (Later) The Justice Party was renamed the Dravidar Kazhagam at a conference held in Salem in September 1944, when the demand for Dravidanad was given substance and a definite scheme for establishing the new state was put forward...The creation of Dravidanad as a separate sovereign state continued to be the main object of the Dravidar Kazhagam and its offshoot the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (founded in 1949) till 1963 when the Indian Constitution was amended specially to make a demand for secession a criminal act, and since then the demand was given up"

Caste, nationalism, and ethnicity : an interpretation of Tamil cultural history and social order - Jacob Pandian "...Among the Tamils, Tamil language is the emblem of Tamil ethnic identity. ...although language constitutes the single most characteristic feature of a separate ethnic identity...ethnicity is frequently related more to the symbol of a separate language than to its actual use by all members of a group... Tamil language functions as the emblem of Tamil identity because of the existence of the various symbols of boundaries in Tamil culture...... it is the use of the symbols of chenthamil, karppu, and tamilakam which enables the denotation of Tamil language as the emblem of Tamil collective identity..."

Guna, a Tamil writer from Karnataka on What Caused Veerappan? "...The States� Reorganisation in 1956 led to the marginalisation of Tamils in the areas, which were acceded to from the erstwhile Madras Presidency to the new-found Greater Mysore. The city of Bangalore, which itself was founded by a Tamil of Vanniyar caste, Kempe Gownden, from �l�r near K�nchipuram in 1537, was predominantly Tamil in its demographic composition. Kollegal, which was largely Tamil, was acceded to Greater Mysore, as Chittoor district was annexed to Andhra Pradesh and the huge Idikki district to Kerala...."

The cyclists stopped in their mid tracks, momentarily blinded by the dust. Passers-by covered their faces with shawls and sari fronts - munthanai - to escape the blast of this hot dust. Life paused a moment. Eventually visibility returned..."

Human Development in Tamil Nadu - Lalitha Sridhar, 2003 ""...Says Professor M. S. Swaminathan, the country�s legendary agricultural scientist named by TIME magazine as one of the twenty most influential Asians of the 20th century, �25-26% of our population are chronically undernourished, what we call endemic hunger, the lack of adequate sustenance. This is not because there isn�t enough food. You have a large variety of food available in the market, provided you have the money to buy it. So the key question, why don�t we have the money? Because there are no jobs. This is the job famine. The livelihood famine...�

- an estimated 65 million Tamils live in Tamil Nadu -

"Tamil Nadu's population stood at 62,110,839 as of 00.00 hours of March 1, 2001. It is the sixth most populous State of the Indian Union behind Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh. The State accounts for 6.05 % of the country's population. Its population density at 478 persons per square kilometre, up from 429 in 1991, and much higher than the all-India density of 324, makes it the eleventh most densely populated State (1991 rank:10) . Approximately 47% of Tamil Nadu's population live in urban areas, one of the highest percentages in India.During the decade 1991-2001, Tamil Nadu reported the second lowest decadal growth in population after Kerala, among the group of States with population exceeding 20 million in 2001. While Kerala's population grew by 9.42 % between 1991 and 2001, Tamil Nadu's grew by 11.19 %. In fact, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Orissa are the only three States in this group to have shown a decline in decadal percentage change in population in every decade since 1971." Global Oneness
