Need to get attention?
What a waste of resources and time!
So now that the government has decreed that the pongal day that begins the month of “Thai” will be celebrated as the Tamil New Year, everyone will start doing so? Hardly!!
Only the “Kalaignar TV” channel’s news reporters will be able to find such celebrations. How? Anywhere people celebrate pongal, the idiots will showcase it as if the people are very happy about celebrating New Year!
How this is a contribution to the tamil community is beyond me… since people have been celebrating the first day of Chithirai month as the Tamil New Year without any issues for as long as I have know.
And the article claims “the Tamil scholars showered encomiums”. Who are the scholars? Surely Karuna’s cronies Duraimurugan and Jegatrakshagan don’t count in, do they?
“This, they said, was the renaissance period of Tamil language. ”
Oh, oooh… aaahhh, wow! I can hardly breath. I can imagine Avvaiyar, Kambar, Thiruvalluvar etc. praising this old man from the heavens for his great act!
Stupid asses. Attention whoring at its finest, IMO.
