Q.

When we watch cricket, we are Indians. But when we discuss water distribution we become either Tamil, or Telugu, or Keralite etc. The film DAM ((( had again inflamed inter -state rivalry as few politicians are pitching with high decibel statement. They Include, actress Khushboo or (MDMK) General Secretary Vaiko or PMK founder-leader Dr S Ramadoss. Where is our problem in settling the matters amicably?

You have rightly observed that we are all Indians when our Cricket or Hockey team is playing an international match. rest of the time, we are Northerners or Southerners, Keralites, Tamilians, Maharshtrians, Biharis or Hindi speaking and non-hindi speaking peoples or Hindus, Muslims Christians etc. We are a Nation divided on regional, linguistic, communal lines. Some sort of a conglomeration of different countries under one administrative umbrella..!!
Regarding the MullaPeriyar Dam, the Tamils approach the issue emotionally, they are tuned to be so by the film personalities turned politicians.The Kerala Govt has assured of the same quantum of water in case the new dam is constructed. But the ownership of the dam will rest with the Govt of Kerala, which TN is reluctant to accept. Similarly, the ridiculous 999year old lease wont be there, the lease period can never exceed the anticipated life span of the dam.

Its been always like this . We are ONE when put against other countries , and we are segregatingly ONE when encountered with issues related to social concerns inside our own country. Sometimes we need to repair our own leaking roofs before repairing others roofs and hence the segregation of tamil or telugu or so . The settlement can happen peacefully indeed but just ONE person willing for peaceful and rational settlement never will help , we need like minds , and we know that we dont have like minds and presence of mind when it comes to matters you mention. Thanks.
