Quiet days on BP as I don’t find much to be riled up about (and even when I do I delete the interesting posts shortly thereafter).
I follow a few members of the Hindu Right on Twitter and their constant mixture of modern alarmism + historical greatness is mildly amusing. One would imagine Hinduism is going extinct any day now judging from their tweets.
Great news for #Tulu! The growth in students choosing to study the lang following its introduction into the education system in 2010-2011 is an encouraging sign. Could be followed by an increased cultivation of the lang as a literary lang in #TuluNad.https://t.co/dJDT4X5eic

I was reading up on Tulu Nad and it seems it would centre on Mangalore. In general I prefer territorial organisation but it seems that Tulu Nad has as much validity as Telegana if not more.
I see an analogous situation to the Britain or France and their relationship to their sub-national identities. In general as a good libertarian I distrust centralised states but I don’t know enough about India’s domestic politics to comment.
However in a way much as the US senate disproportionately favours rural whites in the same manner more states will benefit the “Hindu-Brahmin” character of India.
