2 Tamil Nadu

Tamil people are good to invite others and can develop easily. Don't like Hindi and any other languages to dominate with Tamil.

If Tamil Nadu were a separate nation, which will happen sooner (when people cannot tolerate the influx of the useless North Indians) it would have been a France or Germany.

Very good people and good cost of living comparing other states.

Awesome people

27 Jharkhand Jharkhand

Not a single state in india is crime free and so the Jharkhand is. Not a big deal. Not a single person in India is living in a totally crime free zone. Here, people gives more respect to outsiders than the localities and this makes the Jharkhand a little unique from other states of India. People of Jharkhand don't see outsiders like an enemy which unfortunately lacks on other states.
