The Tamil diaspora: a footnote from South London

Thanks to Ken for his comment on a post about Sri Lanka and Loampit Vale. At his blog, he writes of the closure yesterday of the local Tamil shops here. Extract:
These people are watching their world end and we’re just walking past on the way to the bus-stop. Maybe we pop in to buy a packet of fags or a few lemons. Well, not today we couldn’t.
P.S. I've added Ken's blog, The View From Nunhead, to the Sarf London section of the blogroll. I also liked this recent post: The micro-ethno-geography of football.
