    Yeah, but being Indian I sort of get pissed off when I'm called an "asian indian".
    hey KIA,

    I can understand your sentiments, however, this reference was coming from one of your own kin, ie I assume Bluroz is also indian, and I don't think it was meant as to be offensive. would it be preferable to say Indian Indian, or just deafult to saying Indian, then "american indian" for a native american? But then, you've also gotta watch whose sensitivities you re going to upset with that too.

    I know .. but then I get annoyed with anyone who gets too politically correct.

    Several weeks ago.. I had to spend a good 45 minutes trying to tell someone I've known for ages... I don't mind being called "that Indian guy" ... this was in a bar in New Orleans and he was trying to find way too many politically correct ways to identify me. (I was the only Indian in the bar)

    Go figure .. no harm done ... but just don't call me an "Asian Indian"...

    Durga Puja is celebrated in the Hindu Temple at Happy Valley. You can get details by searching this website for HK Bengali association.
