hey people im back wid a bang....i have a new question for the day:
 
do u think second-generation NRIs...or the children of people brought up in foreign countries should identify themselves as indian or that nationality where they r from???
 
i am a regular on this I-F .and it surprises me to see how many people we have from foreign countries on the serial discussion forums!!!! i have often wondered: why do these people bother about indian serials so much in the US or UK..........they r brought up there....they have learned to identify themselves as american/ british from birth..........then why this craze regarding indian serials which portray a lifestyle which those NRIs most possibly wont be able to even identify with???????/  this is something that has always boggled my mind when i came to if.
 
so my question is: do PIA (People of Indian Origin) identify themselves as indians or otherwise when asked?????

Well every time I apply for a job, or apply to a university or whatever form I have to fill out, I always have to tick the British Asian-Indian box.

As a citizen, I am a citizen of the United States of America. I am proud to be an American.Ethnically, I am an Indian and I will forever be desi. Although it really bothers me that forms have Asian/Pacific Islander or Middle Eastern. Its high time they added subcontinental.As a person, I am just a midwestern hick. So there really are no conflicts over traditional values and culture. I'm neither first nor second generation Indian. I am from the 1/2 generation.

Either way, nowadays I could care less about ethnic or national identity. Pray tell me how hard is it for a person of any generation to learn grammar, punctuation and coherence?
