An open letter to South and North Indian public

Dear North Indian and South Indian public,

Enough is enough! Why do you guys have to take away the limelight from the rest of the country?

First it was Kamal Hassan and Rati Agnihotri in Ek Duje Ke Liye. Then came Chetan Bhagat with a book on his marriage where again the protagonists were North Indians and South Indians.

And now just when Kolkata started getting recognition from Kahaani and West started getting recognition from Aradhya bachan and grandpa bachan, you guys successfully took away the limelight from us by writing immature articles such as this one.

Kabhi socha hain humein kitna complex hotha hoga.

You remember us only when someone gets you rasgullas or vada pav. You discuss about us only during budget as our FM is a bengali and when the sensex reaches a new low during economic crisis.

Otherwise you never pay any attention to our existence :(

FYI, we also have our own music, dance, distinct cuisine, our own charm and idiosyncrasies haan. So zyada shine nahi maarneka.

For you music is categorized into carnatic and Hindustani classical only, ever thought the soulful tukaram abhangs are also a form of music? 

For you Indian classical dance is all about Kathak and Bharat Nataym,  ever seen Manipuri dancers dance?

For you North Indians = brawn, South = brain, ever thought Subash Chandra Bose and Vikram Sarabhai were neither South Indian nor North Indian.

Its not that we want any bhaav, we just want peace. India is a great country but we are already in doldrums due to multiple problems. Instead of fighting within ourselves over trivial matters such as whose culture is the best... can't we set an example by showing the world how united we are despite diversity?

Our sincere request, stop acting pricey. Just go to Madras Cafe or a highway ka dhaba and eat Dosas + mor or parathas + lassi and patch up. Don't make curds out of my brain now (dhimaak ka dahi), just stop fighting like chunnu munnu and pinky. 

Hope you will behave properly from now on.

Chalo aavjo!

With loads of love,
- Western, Eastern and Central part of India!
