Tamil Hindus and Northen Hindus : the erosion of a relationship ?

Abstract : This article examines the inter-ethnic and community relationships between the Northern Hindus and Tamil Hindus in a historical perspective. It highlights the various factors impeding and consolidating unity between the two communities. It shows that in the increasing distance between the two communities, cultural and religious factors are less important than political factors in a democracy where natural, financial and human resources are limited. While on the one hand, globalisation can reduce ethnic clientelism, there are also the risks that deteriorating economic conditions can lead to greater ethnic marginalisation.
