I decided to write this post because I saw a link on another blog that basically linked to here with the link titled as “The Tamil Community in London”. I did leave a comment saying that I think it’s unfair that the blog author feels the need to tar all Tamils with the same brush. I am part of the Tamil community in London and these Tamils in no way represent me so how is it “THE” Tamil community in London? It’s a small few individuals. Obviously the comment didn’t stay up but it is their blog and they are entitled to write and publish whatever they want (as am I).
