Andaman and Burma: Why did many Tamils emigrate to Burma and Andaman in order to find work?
There was once!! all these areas were under the rule of the UK!! With Burma, his free transit, to work. The movement of the humans came in groups, these were the first settlements. Most Indians came to Burma, while it was part of Britisch-Indien.
In 1885, after the annexation of Upper Burma, a number of UK Colonies' infrastructural plans and the increase in travel production in the Danube area led to an unparalleled economic upswing in Burma, which attracted many Indians, particularly from South India, to the Irrawaddy delta.
It was Chettiar Tamils who had the agriculture under control. There are some who say that the Chettiars, many of whom are not citizens of Burma, had virtually all paddy farms due to the high debts of Burma's peasants. To a certain extent one cannot resent the people of Burma, for the Indians went there to make an centimetre, but because of their exuberant character they occupied a farm.
There was a rapid increase in the number of indigenous people (almost half of Yangon's population was Indians in World War II). The Indians play a major part in the UK government and became the targets of the Myanmar nationists, who also play a part because of their colour and looks. Meanwhile, the cost of travel fell during the 1930' s economical crisis and the Chettiar from southern India, who were celebrity money lenders in the travel belts, began to close in the countryside owned by local people.
Tamil Nadu Tamils went to work during Britain's occupation of Burma. In addition, there have been Hindi and Telugu talking operatives emigrating to Burma from Britain. The Tamil population of BURMA was 200,000 at once, but since the end of the Second World War the number has been decreasing.
Lungi' has its origins in the Myanmar word'longi', which shows its nonunilateral movements of human beings, trafficking between the two countries that have been moving on both sides.
