Social media would definitely receive major credits in facilitating Chennai's flood relief activities, standing up against insensitive politicians, and also unfortunately for abusive and racist posts towards each other.

A Mumbaikar, Ashish Chaudhary posted, "I don't mind if Tamil people die, they never considered themselves as Indians." He also wrote in another post, "And then I ask myself, the land who do not accept our national language as their own language and prefer British English more in conversation to native Indians are asking for help from Hindi language people." And then came Anusha Natarajan, a Tamil girl's befitting reply which eventually made the post viral across the media.

Here's what she said:

"Dear Ashish Choudhary,

First of all the good news, we "Tamilians" made it alive and stronger than ever. Now the bad news, your intellect is even teenier and tinier than the size of your brain, let me explain why:

1) Hindi is not our national language, India has many officially recognized languages.

2) I see you're from Mumbai, and that means you are technically not from the northern part of India.

3) 'Hindi language people' is not a thing, not at least where you come from.

4) People from south AKA Dravidians are the real Indians, you guys are immigrants from Persia (not to hurt anyone's feelings, we love you all and will come for your rescue if and when needed).

5) So we embrace English, big deal! It helps us become CEOs of big companies around the world while you are still stuck doing something completely useless on MTV.

And finally, you are brainless. I can tell you this because while you accused us of embracing English, you typed both your posts in English. Not too sharp buddy, not too sharp!



After Anusha's post, Ashish deactivated his Facebook account.
