Sagarika Ghose tries ‘humour’ on Tamil politics, comes up with idli-dosa, gets panned

Former TV journalist and serial tweeter of inane stuff, Sagarika Ghose scored yet another self-goal today after creating a lazy stereotypical article under the garb of  “humour”.

The article was titled, ‘Tamil teri maa? Even those who don’t understand Tamil, can see that the OPS-Sasikala battle is spicier than sambhar ?.’ (that smiley in the end is actually part of the title)

First one might wonder what she meant by “Teri Maa” and the fact that sambhar isn’t really very spicy, the content makes it worse with lazy writing and the same old  phrases like Madrasi, Sambhar, Dosa, Rajinikanth, Chennai Express, scattered around.

Understandably people weren’t really happy about the stupid stereotyping of South India and reacted:

Teri Maa is actually a uncouth distortion of the word Theriyuma which means ‘Do you speak Tamil’.

Read the below excerpt at your own risk:

We frankly don’t know:


Even though the article came with a disclaimer, rather ironically, that it was intended to bring a smile to one’s face, it didn’t quite work out that way. Perhaps the only ones smiling after reading the article were the “Internet Hindus” (a term Ms. Ghose claims to have coined) who knew that Sagarika would now be panned for her writing.

To put the article in a nationwide context, imagine someone living in a western country writing an article about India where she paints the whole country as a land of snake charmers, makes fun of Indian’s accent, languages, quotes Slumdog Millionaire among others. Ms. Ghose just did that on a regional scale.

The main problem is not that she has no sense of humour (one may not have), the main problem is that she thinks she has.
