What's more cringeworthy than this video is you trillvototing the OP ( even after you find the promotional video is cringeworthy ) :giggle: 

I trollvoted cause the OP is a fan of arguably the most fame hungry prime minister ever, but somehow has a problem with this :two_thumbs_up:

Besides this lame ad from TN, i wanted to acknowledge the dominance in chess that the state has had. So many GMs besides Vishwanathan Anand, 5 time world champion and still a great player at older age is pure inspiration and I am sure more deserving of Bharat Ratna than Sachin. Mathematics is a similar field I guess , of imagination and of logic, more interesting and useful than chess surely...In maths, TN gave the world Srinivasa Ramanujan, whose work in his famous notebooks is still being studied and sometimes expanded upon by many fields medalists.. I liked to study works of other top mathematicians like Euler, Guass, Newton etc. study proofs etc. and imagine their times - 17th , 18th centuries etc. It is fascinating, but through Ramanujan's story, his short life cut short by illness, i would say he was a freak of nature, was a greater talent than any mathematician in history, won't be wrong to say there was a Daivik (godly) hand on him.  Ramanujan, his place of birth, and his belongings be treasured, be part of some package tours, he should be celebrated across India as he is the real Pride of India and potential source of self-confidence for Indians as a race (if one thinks that way i.e. in terms of race).

 

couple of TN posters here take inspiration from these greats from their state i guess but in a wrong way, constantly being morons... dedicated morons.

As a tamilian, I can say there was some intrinsic genius in this culture. It wasn't  just logic or architecture or astronomy or music. There was an intuitive and devotional intelligence in the culture. All of that has been fairly eroded post periyar identity nonsense. The state is now fairly mediocre and losing all the top talent either to other states or countries. Lot of mediocre politically active people can kill intrinsic genius of best of cultures.
