I have observed that some Indian tamils look down upon the Sri Lankan tamils. Though the language is almost the same, still, I can make out the underlying distance. Is it due to the nativity issue?

Each look at other, thinking that they are superior than other.

Classic case of a human condition. French think they are superior to the Quebecois and vis-a-versa. NRIs think they are superior to the RIs and vis-a-versa. English think they are superior to their brethern the Americans and the Australians and vis-a-versa.

It's simple caste and class. Most Indian tamils in Canada are higher caste and come from middle class background and are well educated. Most Sri Lankan tamils are poor , not well educated and were originally lower caste in Tamil Nadu when their ancestors went to Sri Lanka.

Another reason may be that the Sri Lankan Tamils are NICER people.:D I'll rather have a Sri Lankan tamil as a neighbor than an Indian tamil.

I'am eagerly waiting Tamilkuravan's reply! ;)
