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.

3 Karnataka

Karnataka is the best place in India and is the centre part of south India it connects all the states of south India across its borders...

No other people is calm as karnataka people all over India as per research...

Great to stay in karnataka...

Karnataka is a best state for living especially cities like bangalore mysore mangalore really great... Good climate, very clean, people r very nice, for education, hospitality, job, technology, tourist spots everything is good... Karnataka is great...

I just love to be in Bangalore it is corruption free and environmental friendly..

People of Karnataka are soft spoken and are known for hospitality. Take Jainism / Buddhism flourishing. Consider the shops of Marwaris/Rajputs in every town and city. Live and let live is the policy. Fringe elements and caste politics are destabilizing the people and economy.
The glory of acceptance at the fullest needs to be reinvented again.

4 West Bengal

A must place to stay for foodies. Living cost is very less. Enjoy the rich culture.

Really, very rich in literature and culture

Nice people with different way of thinking

I am from gujrat and I feel proud to say that West Bengal is the only safest state of india where girls and women can move outside at night. Nowadays, gujrat has become a less safer for women.

Sweets are delicious.

Good governance and good law and order.

Nice people. Bengalis are the best, except the biharis and up balas who filth around and bring a bad name to Bengal.

25 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.

Rich in mineral...

The best state
