Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

My understanding is the 3 language formula is there everywhere. I remember studying sanskrit as 3rd language for 3 years in WB state board.

Off course being a commie state, they were loathe to teach us sanskrit religious texts and hence confined us within Chanakya slokas.
