அதுக்காவது, ஒரு ஜாதி சங்கம் வச்சு (like an extended family)ஒத்தருக்கு ஒத்தர், முக்கயமா குழந்தைகள் படிப்பு, கல்யாணம் போன்ற லௌகீக விஷயங்களில் ஒத்தாசயா இருக்கக்கூடாதா? நம்ம ஸந்ததிகளுக்கு நம்ம ஸம்ப்ரதாயங்களிலே ஒரு பிடிப்பா இருக்குமே.
பகவான் தான் நல்ல வழி காட்டணும்
Nothing can be a more apt expression of the anguish of the the oppressed community than this.
I see this as an outcry of a person whom his brethren and in and around neighbors have deserted
and a lack of human touch in our sea of humanity We are humans first and we have to have human
to human consideration. Somehow somewhere we have lost this precious thing.A deep search is
needed.
God helps only those who help themselves!

மனுஷனோட பிறவிப் பயன் தர்மத்துடன் அனுசரித்த அர்த காமங்களை அனுபவித்து மோக்ஷத்திற்கு பிரார்த்திப்பது தான். அதற்கு பகவத் ச'ங்கல்பம் தேவை. பகவான் புத்தி கொடுத்திருக்கார். அதை வச்சு லக்ஷியத்தை அடைய வழி நாம்தான் நிர்ணயிக்கணும். பகவானை வேண்டிண்டு பலன் நிச்சயம்னு நம்பிண்டு அந்த வழில போணும். ஒருத்தர் தன் ஹீனஸ்திதிலேந்து விடுபட அவர்தான் முயற்சிக்கணும். பகவத் அநுக்ரஹம் மட்டும் போறாது.

There is truth in both sides. We are often taught pluralism, whereas the other segments of the population are often taught chauvinism. This results in identity politics and our heritage degraded both internally and externally. This one-sided belief system must be understood for what it is and we must cherish our heritage and culture whilst the rest of the world rejects us as such. In fact we are more of an ethnic group than a caste, since we differ from most of Tamil community in ancestry and culture. This arouses jealousy and they will attempt to break us down. In fact the entire world is bent on eradicating us as a distinct group due this is a process occuring since the Islamic and British periods.
We need to utilize community bonds to support each other and build ourselves up. To this, we have to interact with another and not be sanctimonious on trivial and petty issues that only serve to mutually disadvantage ourselves. Therefore, community building is to be undertaken.
You may not realize this, but community bonds is often what makes or breaks a society. Our social bonds helped us excel massively in an unforgiving era. If we are to discard our solidarity, we will sink and crumble as a people and disappear under the sand of time. For example most Jews have foresaken religious tradition, but maintain their ethnic solidarity regardless. This has enabled them cultivate themselves to succeed massively in many spheres. We are very much like them in our social and cultural bonds, but we must take the step forward and preserve our solidarity, brotherhood and sisterhood in face of all these challenges, and we will reap even further success in the future.
We just have to keep our chin up and work together!

but seriously is the situation that bad?

I always felt most of the Tamil Brahmins are resilient and survive against all odds and mostly are doing well in life especially abroad.

I really feel may be you could be wanting an ancient feel to time.
The reason we are resilient is because of our culture and our traditions. Our ancestors lived in Agraharams and Vedic gurukuls that brought ourselves together. We are the beneficieries of the sacrifices and efforts of our ancestors and we must recognize that by at least cherishing our heritage. Social capital is what makes or breaks a society or ethnic group, and the culture of our ancestors is what gave us the social capital needed to excel and be resilient. We have a lot to contribute to the world and to contribute the most, we need to unite and work together.

Social capital is what makes or breaks a people. We have social capital, and we must not discard this just because others may envy or scorn us. This is literally the difference between Jews and the rest of europeans. It's not even race or genetics that defines us, but rather the kinship links that hold us together. The Western societies are stagnating due to declining social capital and degrading kinship links, it will be the cause of their doom. The kinships links we had enabled us to succeed and we must respect and honor this as such. From this we can help others in achieving their full potential.
