Ivanga / Avanga
In Tamil, IVANGA/ AVANGA also means the plural They, apart the feminine respect form.
We have to keep in mind that IVANGA and AVANGA both means the same, i.e., THEY. But you use both of them in the same sentences and mean two different set of people.
1. IVANGA is used for addressing people who are present in the situation, whereas AVANGA is used to talk about the people who aren’t there in the situation.
2. IVANGA is used to address the group of people who are near you, and AVANGA for the people who are standing away from you.
