Honesty of Small Town Tamilnadu

Overheard in a small town in Tamilnadu, just before the Local Bodies Elections.

நம்ம விஜயகாந்த் கட்சிக் காரங்க வோட்டு கேக்க வந்தாங்க. வீட்டுல நாலு வோட்டுக்கு மொத்தமா நாலாயிரம் தரேன்னாங்க. வேணாண்ணு சொல்லிட்டேன்.

ஏண்னே?

ஏற்கனவே தி.மு.க. காரங்க கிட்ட கை நீட்டி காசு வாங்கிட்டேன். அப்புறம் இவன் கிட்டயும் காசு வாங்கினா நல்லா இருக்காதில்ல, அதான்

Translation

Vijaykanth party fellows came for canvassing and offered Rs. 4000.00 for 4 votes in our household. I refused to take it.

Why?

Already I have taken money from DMK party fellows to vote for them, it won't be right on my part to take money from these guys also, that's why.

what is your source for this?
I will be supremely dissapointed if it was a figment of your imagination or a junior vigadan joke.

Vatsan, we tamilians keep our words. Vaakku ennikkum maradhu.

D.NA., true, four good people in country, three times a month raining.

Anu, Tamilians are kal thondri man thondra kalathe mun thondriavargal. We have protocols for everything.

Anon - I overheard this in Velankanni Sea Gate hotel Family Restaurant (yes, thats the name of the Restaurant), the man who uttered these words was the Cashier there. I didn't get his name though.

Anon2 - thanks ba.
