seriously.. all that stuff gives you a good laugh..LOLLOL..  its really far-fetched..

I am a Hindu.. i follow Hinduism..Tongue

Well, you're an Indian-American, right? So, this religion stuff shouldn't mean anything to you. I just laugh my head off when I see those foreigners wearing sharwanis and talking in Hindi at the Iskcon Center.



So religions like Hinduism should only be limited to India?

Correct me if I am wrongEmbarrassed You mean to say religion does not matter to Indian-Americans??
I have a Polish friend, who wears Sherwanis and also speaks Hindi and watches Hindi movies with us (of course with subtitles). Religion has nothing to do with anything. One does what they believe in and what makes them happy.

anyone else find the indian currency system a bit confusing.. i always thought a lakh was a million.. found it recently that its only a 100k..Ouch.. and that a crore is infact a million..

Why is it like that..?  Why dont they just equate the lakhs to a million.. or just eliminate it altogether.. wouldn't it be easier to just count in thousands.. 100 thousand and stuff..
Aww Meena ji- that is so sad na ! LOL
There's nothing wrong with the indian system, nor with any other system - problem sirf tab aati hai jab log apne cousins ko maths sikhana start karte hain aur wo cousins doosre desh se hote hain. LOL

I finally understood what a lakh is, now I won't have to rack my brains over it any longer. Thanks for the topic Meena! LOL

P.S. If you live in the US, everything's confusing once you step out. ;)

Forget jet lag. When I go to India, I am more confused that everything is going the wrong way and almost kill myself. I was so lost that my friend would hold my hand to make me cross the road.
