Enna Rascala! That’s the only insult from South India that the rest of India knows. But very few know that South Indians, and especially Tamil people, are the masters of creating new and unique insults to throw in any kind of a situation. Be it when they’re cut off in traffic, or they’re pranked, or just whatever that irritates them, your Tamil friends will always have the choicest insults ready at hand. And when they translate it for you, try not to laugh in their faces, okay?
This video by Rascalas content creators debunks all those times you’ve asked your Tamil friend what their quick-tongued abuse meant.
