I miss you Jenny. If there’s anything you need I won’t be far away.Forrest Gump
The most ironic thing about Forest Gump climax is Jenny told Forrest he didn’t know what love is, and in the end he showed that he Knew what love was more than she ever did.
Anyone unwilling to fully grant women their equality in all ways, at all times, is a terrorist to half the human race.
State actors are soldiers and operate under ostensible rules of warfare (Geneva Convention ) as agreed to by states.
Terrorists are not defined as State Actors operating under the Geneva Convention. The heroism was in the selflessness of his act on behalf of his comrades and military mission.
Most military missions are questionable from an external Point Of View, but how one behaves in the situation is upon the actor, not the state, and so it is considered brave to die in a battle, but not so brave or heroic when one is killed after planting truck bombs to detonate in public squares to achieve media attention, and to set up the second one just to get the first responders and make it bloodier still, in the targeted murders of innocent rescue folk, for strictly that purpose.
IMO, most relationships fail because women won’t recognize their spouse’s accomplishments. Women are more introverted about their accomplishments because they get there without being praised along the way. Men, by contrast, like the acknowledgment no matter how introverted they are.

அண்ணாவின் சமாதி மெரினாவில் அமைந்தவுடன் திமுக இரண்டாக உடைந்தது .எம்ஜிஆர் அதிமுகவை தொடங்கினார்.
எம்ஜிஆரின் சமாதி மெரினாவில் அமைந்தவுடன் அதிமுக ஜா,ஜெ என உடைந்தது.
அம்மாவின் சமாதி மெரினாவில் அமைந்தவுடன் சசிகலா,இபிஎஸ்&ஓபிஸ் என்று உடைந்தது.
இப்பொழுது கருணாநிதியின் சமாதி மெரினாவில்.?
Once Anna was cremated in Marina, DMK was split, and MGR formed ADMK.
Once MGR was cremated ADMK got split into ADMK(Janaki) & ADMK(Jayalalitha).
Once Amma(Jayalalitha) was cremated in Marina, it got split between EPS & TTV. Dinakaran.
Now, Karunanidhi got cremated in Marina?
Caste system was evolution as per time and conditions!!!
- I heard Mudaliars were converts from Jainism.
- Kallars were soldiers of Pandya Kings. After the fall of the Pandya dynasty, their soldiers got forcefully migrated into the forest(Somewhere, around today’s Theni district). With no education and civilisation. Eventually, they had to rob for survival. Which ultimately became their caste.
- Similarly, Pandya Kings Lineage was, forced migrated to another side. Finally, they became Pallars. Today they are classified as SC.
Kallars & Pallars should be a less than 600-year-old caste assuming the fall of the Pandya Dynasty around 1400.
Once we got colonised, Britishers amplified the caste divide, by destroying the history and used it for the benefit of religious conversion.
Caste system was once created to benefit the ecosystem. Caste System was built around skills, and that formed a lineage and carried over generations. But, it has become irrelevant now as;
- Today we have moved away.
- Today we are living in an era which criticises nepotism.
- Today a goldsmith son is a Software Engineer and a priest son is a banker.
I don’t see a point in an identity which we no longer practice. For example, Chettiars were an influential community in Tamil Nadu, and they were money lenders or merchants. I’m sure many of the Chettiars have built a career in Software, Movie, Politics, Medicine etc. which is out of their community business(குல தொழில்).
I don’t see a point in having an identity which we are no longer a part of it.
It is time we move forward and break the divides around caste and religion. Let’s fight against appeasement politics, let’s kill nepotism, let’s get the common civil code.
Let’s practice what we preach.
