Stereotyping Tamilian



Original photograph by Sathiyan

A typical tamilan (non tambram) is stereotyped as being black in color, having pot belly and scrambled hair. The recent example can be seen from the ITC’s Bingo advertisement.

The color of Black is so powerful that almost all actors have used to evoke sympathy from the audience. Rajini in particular had this color his trump card. When he had met so much success with the color black I am surprised to see, why is he moving away from “pichai karrupay” to “chekka sivapay” to “vellai tamilan” .

For me the average is tamilan is like the one seen in the photograph above. Colors should not matter.

    One thing I want to say is that often car insurance cancelling is a hated experience and if you are doing the proper things as being a driver you may not get one. Lots of people do have the notice that they are officially dumped by the insurance company they then have to fight to get further insurance after the cancellation. Inexpensive auto insurance rates are often hard to get after a cancellation. Knowing the main reasons for auto insurance termination can help car owners prevent burning off one of the most important privileges readily available. Thanks for the suggestions shared by means of your blog.

    You could survive a Zombie apocalypse. I hate that my phone battery is about dead. You should be really proud of yourself. That is a smart way of thinking about it. Spot on with this.

    Kamala. Same is the case here, I can spot tamilan and even a kannadiga. Ellam muga lakshanam than. (But all are not black/white/wheatish complex)
