About please and thank you: I have read in some tamil language instructions, that please, and thank you are not commonly used in speaking, but rather inferred by facial expression. What are your thoughts on this? As a visitor from another country I want to ensure my speech is percieved as with manners, and with respect towards the listener. :)

Mr.Veelaku u have a nice name but it doesnt suits with ur avatar. to be correct 'iniya nal', 'iniya eravu' words are not practised in tamil language...it just a translation of english words 'good morn' and 'good night'.

saying "Nandrii" with a smile is equal to thank u.

please : ???? ?????? (written and sri lankan tamil) or ???? ?????? in spoken indian tamil,
sometimes you also use the word konjam ???????

thank you : ?????(???)

but as said above, they are often said in English.
