#1. Till the end of my life, I shall never canvas for a vote. I shall not even expect a word of praise from any quarter. - Author: Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
#2. These stupid biases and discrimination are the reason our country is so screwed up. It's Tamil first, Indian later. Punjabi first, Indian later. It has to end. National anthem, national currency, national teams - still, we won't marry our children outside our state. How can this intolerance be good for our country? - Author: Chetan Bhagat
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#3. I used to be an athlete and even ran the 400 metre stretch for Tamil Nadu. I have always been active. - Author: Arjun Rampal
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Arjun Rampal
#4. It is always a fashion to advise disputants to sit round a table and solve disputes by dialogue and discussion, and not to resort to violent confrontation and wars. Whether in national disputes or in international conflicts parties are being constantly advised to avoid wars and to negotiate, while governments continue to oppress, persecute, and even commit genocide.

No doubt, it is a very salutary advice and a noble ideal, quite often well-meaning, too. Nobody fights a war for the pleasure of it. But the trouble is, it has never been pragmatic ideal, and never will be so long as governments being what they are and the tyranny of the majority and armed might being the ruling principle of democracy…The weaker is left to its own devices to shake off tyranny and oppression.

If the weaker side listened to this idealistic advice and waited till the end of time for a solution to its problems there would have been no wars of independence. If the American colonies of George III's England listened to such advice and continued to be governed by England and to pay taxes to England without representation in the Parliament at Westminster, there would have been no American War of Independence, no American Declaration of Independence, and there would be no United States of America today…" (pp.279-280) - Author: V. Navaratnam
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by V. Navaratnam
#5. She's Tamil. That's enough. They take our land, our jobs. If we let them they will take the whole country. - Author: Nayomi Munaweera
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Nayomi Munaweera
#6. It has been said that Delhi is not a city, but a collection of villages... There were Tamil villages, and Gujarati and Kannadiga, and over everything, like a blanket -- like a blankety-blanket -- a vast and spirited Punjabi joy in living that kept the city together and made it one, made it as much as was possible a city. - Author: Vijay Nambisan
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Vijay Nambisan
#7. I thought about my [Punjabi] family. The only nakshatram we think about is the division of petrol pumps when we have to see the girl. - Author: Chetan Bhagat
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#8. Mumbai is the sweet, sweaty smell of hope, which is the opposite of hate; and it's the sour, stifled smell of greed, which is the opposite of love. It's the smell of Gods, demons, empires, and civilizations in resurrection and decay. Its the blue skin-smell of the sea, no matter where you are in the island city, and the blood metal smell of machines. It smells of the stir and sleep and the waste of sixty million animals, more than half of them humans and rats. It smells of heartbreak, and the struggle to live, and of the crucial failures and love that produces courage. It smells of ten thousand restaurants, five thousand temples, shrines, churches and mosques, and of hunderd bazaar devoted exclusively to perfume, spices, incense, and freshly cut flowers. That smell, above all things - is that what welcomes me and tells me that I have come home.

Then there were people. Assamese, Jats, and Punjabis; people from Rajasthan, Bengal, and Tamil Nadu; from Pushkar, Cochin, and Konark; warrior caste, Brahmin, and untouchable; Hindi, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Jain, Parsee, Animist; fair skin and dark, green eyes and golden brown and black; every different face and form of that extravagant variety, that incoparable beauty, India. - Author: Gregory David Roberts
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#9. One of the outstanding features of Vanni society was the degree of integration of disabled people into the mainstream. They could be seen actively participating in many spheres, carrying out work with grit and amazing agility. People with one arm would ride motorbikes with heavy loads behind them on their motorbikes. You would hardly have known that some people you worked with were missing a leg from below the knee. Disability had been normalized. Serving these people was the only prosthetic-fitting service in Vanni, Venpuraa. This also expanded its service with the introduction of new technology. A common phrase one heard even prior to the Mullivaikaal genocide was about so and so having a piece of shrapnel in some part of their body. Many people lived with such pieces in their body and suffered varying degrees of pain as a result. Visiting medical experts did their best to remove the ones causing the most severe pain. - Author: N. Malathy
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by N. Malathy
#10. I am Tamil, Sinhalese, Muslim and Burgher. I am a Buddhist, a Hindu, a follower of Islam and Christianity. I am today, and always, proudly Sri Lankan. - Author: Kumar Sangakkara
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Kumar Sangakkara
#11. Auroville (City of Dawn) is an 'experimental' township in Viluppuram district in the state of Tamil Nadu, India near Puducherry in South India. It was founded in 1968 by Mirra Richard (since her definitive settling in India called '[The] Mother') and designed by architect Roger Anger. Auroville is meant to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realize human unity. - Author: Mirra Alfassa
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Mirra Alfassa
#12. Human beings around the world have to be taught to go, 'Tamil equals Tamil civilians first, and the Tamil Tiger is a separate thing.' And both of those groups are different. It's like a square and a circle. - Author: M.I.A.
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by M.I.A.
#13. There was an agitation against Mumbai Express: because part of it is an English word. There is no Tamil word for Mumbai Express. I am sure all those who were against it, even they wouldn't say 'I love you' to their lovers in Tamil. Many don't even thank in Tamil, - Author: Kamal Haasan
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Kamal Haasan
#14. Man's pains and pain's relief are from within;
நோதலும் தணிதலும் அவற்றோரன்ன; - Author: Kaniyan Pungundranar
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Kaniyan Pungundranar
#15. India's linguistic diversity surprises many Westerners, but there are nearly thirty languages in India with at least a million native speakers. There are more native speakers of Tamil on our planet than of Italian. Likewise, more people speak Punjabi than German, Marathi than French, and Bengali than Russian. There are more Telugu speakers than Czech, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Slovak, and Swedish speakers combined. - Author: Bob Harris
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Bob Harris
#16. I was shot at for being a Tamil in Sri Lanka, and then, everyone was calling me a Paki in London, and I'm not even Pakistani. - Author: M.I.A.
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by M.I.A.
#17. I would say the film world has stopped operating as one. We have divided it into Hindi movies, Bengali movies, Tamil movies and so on. Earlier, there was only one channel and we all knew what was going on. Today, it is hard to keep track of programmes due to the advent of regional channels. - Author: Mithun Chakraborty
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Mithun Chakraborty
#18. We will go to every part of Tamil Nadu and tell the people that Hindi is coming and that it is like a thunder strike on the heads of Tamil and Dravidian people ... If Hindi were to become the official language of India, Hindi-speaking people will govern us. We will be treated like third rate citizens - Author: C. N. Annadurai
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by C. N. Annadurai
#19. Sam whacked Jacob over the ear. 'You know,' he said, his voice low, 'those pancakes'll go straight to your hips.'

Jacob glowered at him. 'You know,' he mimicked, 'there's a reason nothing rhymes with orange.'

'There is a reason,' returned Sam. 'It's because orange comes from the Arabic word naranj, which in turn is thought to derive from the Tamil words aru, which means six, and anju, which means five. Because when you cut an orange in half, it has six segments in one half and five in the other. So nothing rhymes with it because we don't have many other words appropriated from Tamil. - Author: Lili Wilkinson
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Lili Wilkinson
#20. If god is the root cause for our degradation destroy that god. If it is religion destroy it. If it is Manu Darma, Gita, or any other Mythology (Purana), burn them to ashes. If it is temple, tank, or festival, boycott them. Finally if it is our politics, come forward to declare it openly. - Author: Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
#21. The Shiv Sena was the handiwork of a cartoonist named Bal Thackeray, whose main target was south Indians, whom he claimed were taking away jobs from the natives. Thackeray lampooned dhoti-clad 'Madrasis' in his writings and drawings; while his followers attacked Udupi restaurants and homes of Tamil and Telugu speakers. - Author: Ramachandra Guha
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Ramachandra Guha
#22. The Red Hill was referred to in the most ancient surviving work of Tamil literature, the Tolkappiyam, which itself makes reference to an even earlier work now lost to history which in turn had supposedly been part of a library of archaic texts, all now also vanished, the compilation of which was said to have begun more than 10,000 years previously. This had been the library of the legendary First Sangam -- or 'Academy' -- of the lost Tamil civilization of Kumari Kandam, swallowed up, as Captain Narayan put it, 'by a major eruption of the sea'. - Author: Graham Hancock
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Graham Hancock
#23. We do not need to explain how the Aryans entered and settled in the Dravidian country, and subjugated and oppressed the Dravidians. Nor do we need to explain how before the Aryans entered the Dravidian country, the Dravidian country had a civilization and arts of the highest rank. - Author: Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
#24. It's not arrogance. [Tamilians] are quiet people. - Author: Chetan Bhagat
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Chetan Bhagat

Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Viswanathan Anand
#26. Then there were the people. Assamese, Jats, and Punjabis; people from Rajasthan, Bengal, and Tamil Nadu; from Pushkar, Cochin, and Konarak; warrior caste, Brahmin, and untouchable; Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Parsee, Jain, Animist; fair skin and dark, green eyes and golden brown and black; every different face and form of that extravagant variety, that incomparable beauty, India. - Author: Gregory David Roberts
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#27. I thought that there is yet hope for someone who was caught in the river's whirlpool, but none exists for those who are trapped in the vortex of a beautiful woman's eyes. - Author: Sumeetha Manikandan
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Sumeetha Manikandan
#28. Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for us to change the mindset which has tended to create ad hoc solutions for the political madness and social farce. In fact, our age of tragedy which has been represented by the so-called "Marxists" in the Sinhalese community and "liberalists" in Tamil community since the 70s to the late 90s, has been replaced by the age of farce. - Author: Nilantha Ilangamuwa
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Nilantha Ilangamuwa
#29. I want to say a word to the Brahmins: In the name of God, religion, sastras you have duped us. We were the ruling people. Stop this life of cheating us from this year. Give room for rationalism and humanism. - Author: Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
#30. True, the US Government does not have moral authority to ask for an independent investigation into alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity that occurred in final stages of the civil war in Sri Lanka. This is so not just because of what they have done in Sri Lanka, but what they do all around the world. Certainly, the US enhanced their assistance in many ways during last decades to fight against the Tamil Tiger rebels. But does the Government of Sri Lanka have moral authority to deny an international investigation? The answer is no. - Author: Nilantha Ilangamuwa
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Nilantha Ilangamuwa
#31. As of the second decade in the twenty-first century, nearly all acts of terror around the world (as opposed to acts of terror confined to one country, as in the case of the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka) have been committed by Muslims in the name of Islam. Of course the vast majority of Muslims are not terrorists. But this frequently noted fact is meaningless. - Author: Dennis Prager
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Dennis Prager
#32. +91-9929933179 Husband And Wife And Love Problem Solution in Karnataka*Kerala*Chennai*Tamil Nadu - Author: Love N Books
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Love N Books
#33. To discard what is unwanted, and to retain what is needed, is what reform means. - Author: Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
#34. There are over six thousand languages in India, as per one estimate. At home, my driver speaks three: Kannada, Tamil and Telugu. I speak three languages: Hindi, English and bad. The home nurse (caring for my MIL) speaks Malayalam. The maid speaks gibberish. And, my husband does not speak. So, by the time we get a simple task executed, for instance, 'Get some salt', one can take a short trip to Sri Lanka, learn Sinhalese and come back. - Author: Rachna Singh
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Rachna Singh
#35. Tamilians love to irritate non-Tamil speakers by speaking in Tamil only. - Author: Chetan Bhagat
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#36. Life's good comes not from others' gifts, nor ill;
தீதும் நன்றும் பிறர் தர வாரா; - Author: Kaniyan Pungundranar
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Kaniyan Pungundranar
#37. It's a little-known fact that most terrorist groups fail, and that all of them die. Lest this seem hard to believe, just reflect on the world around you. Israel continues to exist, Northern Ireland is still a part of the United Kingdom, and Kashmir is a part of India. There are no sovereign states in Kurdistan, Palestine, Quebec, Puerto Rico, Chechnya, Corsica, Tamil Eelam, or Basque Country. The Philippines, Algeria, Egypt, and Uzbekistan are not Islamist theocracies; nor have Japan, the United States, Europe, and Latin America become religious, Marxist, anarchist, or new-age utopias. The numbers confirm the impressions. - Author: Steven Pinker
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Steven Pinker
#38. Telugu-Tamil producer Thyagarajan has bought the South Indian language rights for two Hindi hit films, Vikas Behl's 'Queen' and Neeraj Pandey's 'Special 26.' He wants me to play Akshay Kumar's role in the Telugu version of 'Special 26.' Akshay and I even look similar, physique-wise. - Author: Ravi Teja
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Ravi Teja
#39. Exhibiting nervousness would amount to weakness in public perception and nobody liked a weak leader. Showing bravado was the norm among Tamil Nadu politicians when faced with court cases. Even in the face of mounting evidence against them, they would behave as if it was business-as-usual. And if the verdict went against them, their usual refrain would be "judgement had been 'bought' rather than delivered." Sesha could not stoop to their level, but still he had to put up a brave front at least till the judgement was delivered. - Author: Hariharan Iyer
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Hariharan Iyer
#40. The girls were screaming in Tamil, except for one, who was repeating the word "epa" like a loud and shrill chant. That was not how the Sinhala word was usually used, but it was an expression Mugil had ofen heard Sinhalese policeman and the army lob at civilians. Epa! when they didn't want you to sell apples by the road in Jaffna. Epa! when you tried to drive on at the checkpoint at Vavuniya. Epa! Don't! The girl's voice seemed to ring through all of Kilinochchi. - Author: Rohini Mohan
Sivachandran Tamil quotes by Rohini Mohan
#41. I learnt to sing in Bengali, my mother tongue, then went on to sing in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati and every possible Indian language. - Author: Shreya Ghoshal
