This Video Chooses a Unique Way to Explain Why Every South Indian is Not a Madrasi
“I am a South Indian.”
“Okay. Madrasi.” “
No. South Indian.”
“Yea. Madrasi. Same thing, no?”
Have you been in a similar situation? Most of us have. Stereotyping South Indians is one thing North Indians do, unintentionally. Enna Da Rascalas, the comedy group, understood it as the lack of knowledge and came up with a video that breaks all the stereotypes and acts as a guide for all the North Indians when it comes to culture!
Set to the tune of Billy Joel’s 90s song ‘We didn’t start the fire’, this video explains the difference between the four biggest states of India – Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The chorus is unbelievably catchy and by the end of the video, you’ll find yourself singing ‘We are south of India. This is not a single state, we’re here to clear the slate. We are south of India. There is no Madrasi, we are all padosi (neighbours)’.
From stereotypes in Bollywood to the ones in regular conversations, this video will truly give you a cultural lesson in the most humorous way possible!
