“The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearances things present: and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.”
A quick perusal of news sources in India and overseas concerning Tamil interests turn up few cogent sources.
Is there an avenue for a thinking Tamilian to decipher the world?
Tired of the same old rehash of cynical newspapers with their slanted views?
To alleviate this gross shortage of real and incisive news and views, we set up , ‘The Thinking Tamil’. We hope it can serve as a vehicle to voice our views and articulate our passions and interests.
Look past the illusions which blind us, and uncover the media subterfuge.
If you would like to contibute to our content or just point out an interesting link, feel free to contact us. We are various avatars of Murugan – your friendly goatherd. Rather than bore you with long accounts of our sterling accomplishments in following orders from corporate knaves, our brilliant business acumen or acquiring credentials from learned institutes, and pontificating to the world at large, we decided to show you the way through the maze of life. We are in the business of tearing down walls of deceit, media sycophancy and corporate grovellation.
We as Tamils welcome anyone who has a passing interest in our history, language and culture. Narrow demarcations of religion,caste,creed and national affliation have no place here. We stand at a crucial juncture in history, where our heritage, achievements and aspirations are under siege by rapacious, racist and fascist intent. It is time to claim what is ours, come aboard.
