One thought on “Toronto Tamils Vs. London Tamils – Which City Wins?

  1. I’ve noticed that Tamils from London sound more “British” than Tamils from Toronto sound “Canadian”.
    Tamils from Britain sound very posh and refined, while a lot of Tamils in Toronto (even the ones born here) have that quasi ghetto-FOB accent that brown kids who only hang out with other brown kids tend to have.
    Is this because Tamils in Toronto live in enclaves where they’re only surrounded by brown people, while Tamils in London live in diverse neighborhoods where they’re more exposed to native Brits?
