Celebrating with locals is key to being part of the crowd. Many times, if you do not know the right words or cultural context to use these words, things may go downhill and downright embarrassing very quickly. So here are some exciting ways to help you say “Cheers” in Tamil!
The Tamil language is one of the oldest languages in the world. It is also one of the earliest classical languages in the world.
It is the native language of the Indian State of Tamil Nadu. You may wonder why Hindi is not the native language of Tamil Nadu; also, Hindi should be the primary language all across India.
Well, in a way, this is true. Hindi is the official language of India, but due to its massive and diverse population, India has no national language but several Indian languages. It has up to 270 mother tongues, some of which I am sure you haven’t heard of.
In the culture of Tamils, alcohol drinking is carried out openly. This is not so in every Asian or Indian culture. Some have very diverse traditions, religions and people. To show respect, they do not drink or serve alcohol publicly. In Tamil Nadu, regular drinkers probably spend Rs. 4000 or about USD 50 per month.
There is a significantly large number of alcohol drinkers among men and women in the South of India, especially in Tamil Nadu. Research indicates that alcohol consumption is bringing considerable profits to business owners in the South. This is because people prefer local brands.
