LIFE in INDIA
India Tamil Nadu, the land of the Tamils is the southern-most India state of Tamil Nadu is bordered by Puducherry, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.India Tamil Nadu has had continuous human habitation since pre-historic times. Its long India history and Indian cultural traditions are among the oldest in India and the world. The ancient Indian Tamil kingdoms of Chera, Chola, Pallava and Pandya are of very ancient origins. They patronised a mature India culture which produced some of the oldest surviving Indian literature in India.Colonised by the East India Company, India Tamil Nadu was eventually incorporated into the Madras Presidency. After the independence of India, the India Madras State was created in 1956 based on India linguistic boundaries. The name of the Madras State was changed to Tamil Nadu in the year 1969. The politics of India Tamil Nadu has been dominated by DMK and AIADMK, who are of the Indian Dravidian movement which agitated demanding concessions for the 'Dravidian' population of India Tamil Nadu. Lying on a low plain along the Indian southeastern coast of the Indian peninsula, Tamil Nadu is bounded by the India Eastern Ghats in the north and Nilgiri, Annamalai Hills, and Palakkad on the west. The state has large fertile areas along the Indian Coromandel coast, the Palk strait, and the Gulf of Mannar. The fertile plains of India Tamil Nadu are fed by rivers such as Kaveri, Palar, and Vaigai, and by the northeast monsoon. Traditionally a manufacturing Indian state, Tamil Nadu is also a leading producer of agricultural products.The sixth most populous state in the Indian Union, Tamil Nadu has the largest Indian urban agglomeration nationwide. Increases in literacy have caused India Tamil Nadu to report the second lowest growth in population in India for the last decade. Globalisation brought increased export opportunities, making India Tamil Nadu the fifth largest economy among the states of India. In spite of all these TN has the most number of HIV positives in India declared in 2007.The growing demands for skilled labour have caused the increased number of educational institutions in India Tamil Nadu. It has the highest number of vocational training institutions in India. India Chennai, which was known until 1996 as Madras, is the fourth largest city of India and the state capital. Coimbatore, Madurai, Tiruchirapalli, Salem and Tirunelveli are other large cities (Corporations) of India Tamil Nadu.The art and culture of Tamils are among the oldest in India and the world.

You're an extremely skilled photographer; in my opinion, as good as the famous Steve McCurry. India seems like the ideal place for the camera, with its bright sunlight, colorful people, and ancient traditions. I thoroughly enjoyed your gallery. You have my vote, which seems long over due.
