Can we discuss the use of language (spoken Tamil by and large) as a weapon of social oppression? It is common knowledge that the underprivileged were forced / by force of habit born out of centuries of oppresion, to address those in the so called higher social strata as 'Saami, Durai, Naachiyaa ...' This is just one example.
