    I came across this article. What ou think? Is it all true? If true it is bad news for South.

    "India's growth would have progressed better if it comprised its southern and western parts only...The rest of the country held the South and West back", P. Chidamparam, Minister of Finance, India (2004-2008) to the American Ambassador in a conversation in August 2009.

    Not only in economic progress but also in the delivery of public services, such as food, health care and school education, Tamil Nadu would be better off as an independent country. "A number of Indian states--Kerala and Tamil Nadu, for example--would be at the top of the South Asian comparisons if they were treated as separate countries, and others--Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, for example--would do enormously worse." - Professors Jean Drèze and Amartya Sen in their 2013 book “An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions” (both authors are economists and Amartya Sen received the Nobel prize in economics in 1998).

    In summary, Tamil Nadu would be better off in economic development and also in overall standard of living (food, health, education) if it were a separate, independent country.

    Stupid paid research to spew separatist movements in India... There are 1000's of reasons why TN would fail as a separate state.. First off would be water the state is dependent on rain water and any less rain will plunge he agriculture economy .. and Trade happens not within the state but will rest of India and TN is recipient for lot of central funding... and it figures in the top only cause of golden Quadrilateral and North south NH and Chennai being a hub for IT and manufacturing...

    Buss off with the separatism attitude and your bullshit Dravidian theory

    The atheist rationalist Karunanidhi would pray to lord 'periyar' and recite mantras in de-sanskritized shuddh DMK Tamil and food would magically rain down. It would be shuddh Tamil food the like they used to eat 2000 years ago, before evil Aryans colonized them. :laugh:

    I think this is an avatar of the same anti-national filth who used to infest this forum a few years ago, whining and moaning about Eelam and Tamil separatism and all that shit. Let me recall his name and post it here. Well, names aside, that moron was banned several times already, and he is overdue for one more now.

    The forum is being used to present separatist propaganda disguised as an innocent question. Sir, @Sakal Gharelu Ustad is it not wiser to delete the thread itself?

    who is this genius?

    States get their share based on their earnings, they generate their income and spend for their own programs and development. Center has no say in this.

    I don't think separate Tamil state is the answer, even though there were situations when you would think it is a good idea. We are as integrated into the national fabric as the next one from North, East, Central and North East.

    What we need is more autonomy and power to decide on issues pertaining the individual identity of the state, rather than someone from Delhi or the northern states, especially someone who has never been to or lived in the state decide on the affairs of the state and the practices of its people.


    Also, we need a market to sell our products and services ;). I am pretty sure, it is easier to do business as a state than as a separate country.

    No I'm making fun of dravidian separatists who're mostly communists/christians. You should learn more about our culture, instead of the jewish one you currently worship.

    Your post about not defining by last name but individuality & talents, shows you're harvested.

    We recognize no concept of individuality period. Or your american 'freedom' from common sense (dharam).

    No, your response to my post implies you are calling rest of india as classless. Read it again :).

    And, since when did you get superpowers to know what my religion is, if at all I am religious? Gotta love your trolling abilities ... not

    He will mostly eat Rice,Sambhar and Chatni also their Dosa is made from rice.He can alao have Beef since it's openly serve in SI universities.wheat is a staple crop and main food in central India and North.

    Forex is also not a problem since the Temples are stashed with Tons of Gold and cash also expatriate is a good source for forex living in Gulf,Singapore and Malaysia.They already have a good industrial and agriculture base so ILAM would be a super power which will bring back Chola Glory.

    India Does not need a more freedom to states.. Govts need to have Vision for its subjects ,..

    Tanjore and cauvery belt produces the best rice and yes it was self sufficient in Chola days and during that time it included Andhra ..

    The Current Tamil Nadu will be Unsustainable in any way. The state is energy deficient and is constantly propped up from the southern Grid...
    Drinking water is sourced from Krishna River .. Cavery has origins in a different state .. Mullai Periyar reservoir is in a different state.

    Just the basic industries are not present in the state,, Iron and steel is in Karnataka or Bihar . What will you do if IT is not there.. and For IT the major gateway is in Mumbai connecting US .....

    Security will be a nightmare Pakis and China or SL will harass the hell out of the state Damn there is only one major port and a one more notable port in the Entire state ..

    What every way you look at it TN or Kerala as an independent state is Unsustainable ..

    United we are strong Divided we fall and there are lot of forces that want to use age old policies of Divide and Rule...

    There are several 1000 reasons to be together.. The country is united in Culture is one of the biggest reasons ..

    BTW i am a Indian first Tamilan in language .. K Murali Your a disgrace to be called Indian or Tamilian
