The answer for your question is
1.Tamils are generally immensily proud of tamil.There is a saying that உடல் மண்ணுக்கு உயிர் தமிழுக்கு.(Body for the sand aka earth,life for tamil).
2.I cant explain my love for my language.Please use google with keyword 'Tamil pride quora' then you will know what i mean.
3.Tamil is the root language for nearby three states languages Malayalam,Kannada,Telugu.
4.In Tamilnadu Tamil is the official language. In schools Tamil is compulsory with second language is english etc .
5.In India you can survival with Hindi language in 90% of states. You can't survive in Tamilnadu with that. Tamil people only speaks tamil.Most of them understand and speaks English.You can survive tamil nadu with english .
6.And as for as employment concerned corporate companies prefer English.But you can do government job with tamil nd English knowledge .
7.We respect other languages in india. but we are stubborn for our language pride.
8.The most important thing is tamil is a stand alone language with zero influence from other language. Means tamil language has its own word for every single thing from an atom to the things that will invented by the scientist in future. for example when ebook is invented there is no tamil word for that at the time. now its called as படிணி .
்9.Prestige?tamil people will give their life for their language pride. 10.Please google 'Anti hindi agitations of Tamilnadu' and 'Tamil Renaissance'.It will clear all your questions.

If you are still happy to offer your expertise, I have a very specific question which no native-Tamil speaker ever seems to actually answer and I never find it actually explained in the textbooks.
naan thirumbukireen = I RETURN
naan thundu thirumba = I RETURN THE TOWL (hope that's correct)
What actually determines when the conjugations (-kireen, -kiriinga) are necessary and not???? I feel so compelled to try really hard to get
them right and then half the time I just see them dropped altogether.

I've been learning Tamil for a couple of years now but it's tough as there aren't a lot of good resources around. Thanks for answering my question a while back about சுத்தி. I hope to see you around and will keep checking back more often now.
Michael, I was just in Chicago a couple of week back on vacation and went to Oak Park to seek the FLW house. What a coincidence!
