It may be noted that #LTTE never directly participated in #TamilNadu politics and I assume they carefully avoided getting stuck with TN politics just to win over all the people of #TamilNadu.
Like in the past #Eelam people avoid getting stuck with #TamilNadu politics. It will be good for their future struggle and to win back the support of all the people of #TamilNadu

Some masterpieces have aspects that are hard to imagine. One such masterpiece is Brahadeswar. How did our ancestors manage to roll up a huge dome-like rock of heavy mass to the top of the temple? Is it even possible to defy the forces acting as angular momentum at higher
elevations? While looking at the temple's antiquity, and the great mass of the rock makes things quite unimaginable. It's hard to say that what sought of technology did they used to pull up such a stressful task with impeccable perfection. Brahadeswar temple dedicated to Bhagwan
Shiva is an architectural beauty of world-class and is an important UNESCO Heritage Monument Site located in Thanjavur city, #TamilNadu. It was built by the famous Chola king Sri Rajaraja 1000 plus years ago. It is the only temple with a 216 feet tall tower in the world entirely

In the trailer of ‘The Family Man 2,’ the antagonist Raji’s, played by Samantha Akkineni, uniform matches that of LTTE, which haven't sat right with many who started trending the hashtag #FamilyMan2_against_Tamils on Twitter. #FamilyMan2_against_Tamils… Image
Some viewers noticed that in the recently-released trailer, Raji’s uniform resembles that of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a Tamil militant organization. The trailer also mentions an "unexpected coalition" between the "ISI and rebels" worsening things for the show. Image
Alleging that Tamils were being shown as "thugs," many Twitter users announced that they will be unsubscribing Amazon Prime. Moreover, assuming that the rebels depicted are from LTTE as Akkineni plays a Sri Lankan Tamilian, many Twitter users came to defend the organization. Image

All indications from the coronavirus numbers in India in the last two weeks suggest that the second wave of infections may already have reached a peak, or will peak in the next few days, but end may still be far away.
#ExpressExplained :

#COVID19India Image
After reaching a high of 4.14 lakh last Thursday, the daily cases has dropped significantly in the last 1 week. This is not happening for the first time. After crossing 4 lakh mark for the first time on April 30, the case count had gone down for a few days, before jumping again. Image
#Maharashtra, which at one point was contributing more than 60% of daily cases, certainly seems to be in a declining phase now. The decline in Maharashtra is likely to have the biggest impact on the national curve.

#Elections are supposed to be about electing representations for framing legislations

However the geography behind delimitation which doesnt consider complex socio-economic conditions promote communal polarization leading to deterioration of Democractic values

Understanding Delmitation:

The constituency delimitation is based on population. and for last delineation exercise, 2001 population was used. Average population was calculated to be 270000 people per constituency

#Map shows Population spread in Tamil Nadu
To delineate which village/town comes under which constituency, some rules are followed

To achieve the avg population, officials start with headquarters for the constituencies in district & add villages/towns within same or neighbouring taluks(subdistricts) in same district
