The culture differences between south and north India has been widely seen in all aspects. They actually show a peculiar uniqueness in their way of food, dressing, cultural activities, music, art etc. The difference is so obvious, that one can feel they belong to two different continents.
The Hindi-belt of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Punjab, Haryana is generally considered as the heartland of North India. Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Kerala is considered mainly as South India.
This imaginary distinction between north-south India has a history that goes back to the pre-independence era. From time to time, this fault line becomes active, leading to the polarisation of North-South India. Since the emergence of social media, we have seen people from both the regions involving in verbal spats directly with each other with respect to cinema, sports, language etc.
One such Twitter user whose bio can be seen written in Hindi language, posted a tweet mocking the people, especially women of South India. In a way of objectifying the women who belongs the South region of the country by saying that they are dark skinned, the Twitter user uploaded a picture of popular fairness cream product “Fair and Lovey” and wrote “Let’s confuse south Indians”

This baseless tweet from him grabbed the attention of the active twitter users of South India. They who thought of giving him back what he deserves, started posting reply tweets pointing out their literacy rate etc. The interesting fact about the reply tweets are, that they were mostly posted by the Tamil nadu based twitter users and the replies received three times more likes than the original tweet.
“Let’s confuse North Indians aka vadakans” wrote Chanakyan by adding a picture saying “Literacy”. The tweet received 821 likes so far whereas the original post received just 63 likes.

Country India is known for its unity in diversity across the world. Let us restrain ourselves from spewing hatred at each other by spreading love.
