I am a very devout Hindu. I am also a Tamil nationalist from my college days; I am now 83 years of age. In these long years I have observed that some Hindus think that Tamil nationalism is opposed to Hinduism. I congratulate Mr. Thanjai Nalankilli for zeroing in on the reason for this misconception [Reference 1].

Mr. Nalankilli gave the example of Maraimalai Adigalar as a devout Hindu who was also a Tamil nationalist. I am another example that a devout Hindu can be a Tamil nationalist too. There are tens of thousands of us like that.
