They foresee lot of issues for TN due to bjp perceived North Indian tilt. Separatist seeman's party and anti Hindu kamal are posting 3 to 5 percent in most seats. Kamal party did pretty well in 3 Chennai seats.
Bjp will need to focus on Tamil nationalism bordering on seperatism prevailing in TN now. Also I think complete decimation of admk is better for bjp and they will need to work on it.
What to do onlee, when you see butcher shops on the outer walls of the prakaram at the Great temple at Tiruvannamalai, or the mounds of refuse thrown on to Arunachala hill and illegal colonies on its eastern slope, reactions such as you report make me absolutely convinced that TN is becoming increasingly brain dead.
Now you hardly ever see any young man or young women in any of the advanced schools run by GoI under the auspices of the National center of Math. from TN or Kerala. Most are from Bengal, and from Northeast, hey even some from Cashmere. This is also the story of new entrants into DAE institutes like the TIFR. Kerala and TN are doing something else, do not know what. One day I might write a post exposing all this with names. But not today, a day of great celebration and joy so let us enjoy.
