India and insurgencies

Contacts knowledgeable about the areas tell me the Maoist insurgency in Nepal and the Tamil Tigers insurgency in Sri Lanka are both backed at least in part by India.

Both insurgencies are well equipped and funded. Of course, insurgencies can not exist without the support of those within the country itself, but why would India be involved?

Anyone know more about this? True, the Tamils are an ethnic group from southern India, but that doesn’t fully explain the possible involvement of India, and I’m clueless about Nepal, except that the two countries share a common border. Imperialism India-style?
