    Before you know it its suddenly not your place anymore.
    Once they were significant in numbers they would coordinate and slowly buy up an entire area by restricting other buyers and paying a bit more to sweeten the deal.
    The outright hinting and harassment began only in the 2000s when they had completely taken over.
    I get it. Greed is something very tough to do away with. Back home, I had an issue with a portion of my farm-land and I had to use the law to serve a court notice to get them evicted. Thankfully, my cousin was a lawyer then (Judicial Magistrate now). Hindus have stopped selling lands to Muslims and vice-versa. The tribals have stopped selling lands to non-tribals. Seems, people like living in clusters of their own, expecting the coming doom.

    I have worked and lived in quite some parts of India, and my personal opinion and of what I've seen in Chennai would probably beat every other place. The discrimination is not covert at all, and many times it's overt. Hindus/Muslims/Christians all discriminate each other. When done, upper castes discriminate against the SCs, the Scs in turn discriminate against the OBCs. Having said that, I found some Tamils from every sphere(UC, SC, OBC or a Muslim) to be quite progressive and mature. Fun to hang around with.

    Sorry, couldn't resist

    "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" ~ Epicurus
