    Protests Continue In Andhra Pradesh Over Telangana Creation
    Split spurs demand for creation of other new Indian states

    My parents in US (been visiting) are glad to hear the news about the new state of Telangana. Its been a long wait for many in their generation who are from the region. They were children when the movement for a separate state had begun. Now that a bold decision had been taken, hope everyone can move on (after understandable protests in non-Telangana region) and concentrate on development and good governance.

    Am I correct in assuming that these are going to be more ethnically/linguistically homogenous than their predecessors? It’s a little hard to tell for quickly skimming the articles, but that’s the impression that I get, especially with the references to Gorkhaland.
