i reject the term hindustan. there is no question of a language of india. there never will be.

Karunanidhi recites Hindi poem in public

Chennai, Oct. 1 (PTI): Under attack over his recent remarks on Lord Ram and the strong reaction they evoked in the North, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi has apparently sought to reach out to his detractors by reciting a Hindi poem in a public meeting, an unprecedented act on the part of Dravidian leader known once for his strong anti-Hindi stance.

Addressing a public meeting late last night in support of the demand for speedy implementation of the Sethusamudram project, he surprised the audience by asking them to join him in reciting the poem.

"Hindustan hai desh hamara, janse apne humko pyara. Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Isaai aapas main hain bhai bhai. Bhai hoga bhai hamara, aisa hoga chalan hamara (India is our country and we love it more than our lives. Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians are all brothers. Brothers will be brothers, such will be our conduct).

In the meeting he also chided "communal" forces for invoking the name of Ram for putting "obstacles" in the Sethusamudram project. He said the same communal forces had killed Mahatma Gandhi when he was uttering the name of Ram while singing a bhajan

i've never heard any southern indian refer to india as hindustan; i don't remember many north indians doing so either. i may, however, have heard north indians recite poems or quote passages in which "hindustan" is referred to. i myself have never used the word except in reference to the make of the box-like car that was ubiquitous in india.

Willy in this thread itself i gave a poem written by the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu who used the word 'Hindustan' in his poetry.
