But honestly, I still don't understand why some NRI members try to demean Indians, who newly arrive from India, by saying that they have oily hair, smelly, stares at girls, try to grope, etc.
Its possible that they are not trying to demean anyone but just expressing what they feel and experience. what is bad is that it gets generalised and a wrong image and impression is formed, based on a few bad experiences.


Speaking for myself it is usually merely expression of experience rather than intentional generalization or wanting to demean. A lot of it has to do with human nature and we often don't realize it.

- It is human nature to stereotype. Not just NRI, even within India you will see the stereotype of a South Indian, a Gujju, a Sardar, a bhaiyya, a Nepali etc. Once removed from India we are exposed to so many more nationalities, ethnicities and cultures that we homogenize them into larger groups - FOB desis, NRI desis, Asians, Latinos, Blacks

- Negative impressions have more impact than positive impressions. If you go to a restaurant and have a bad experience, you tell everyone unsolicited. However, if it was good or great you won't tell unless asked. To share a positive it has to be phenomenal. That is why NRI's tend to develop strong opinions of desis based on very few experiences, similarly desis stereotype NRI's based on few experiences.

Also no country or culture is perfect. There are many flaws or room for improvement. While there are many NRI's who criticize for the sake of demeaning or feel superior, many criticize to make a point, to show room for improvement. Many do love our country and want to change things for the better. We don't want anyone to ever look down at our country because of the flaws, we don't want the vast number of positives, the rich history and culture overshadowed by the negativities. Unfortunately, due to the poor attitude of many NRI's even the ones who mean well tend to bear the brunt of being anti-Indian - and vice versa.

Blue Ice,

IF does weird things sometimes. You log in, but it does not show you logged in. However, when you go to post etc, you are logged in. I've had the not log in issue too. Sometimes closing/reopening the browser, resetting connection helps.

still not able to log in...its funny though that I can log in with my new ID.....maybe it will come around in a couple of Day..thanks for the tip though and Merry Christmas!!Tongue
 
I think two three days before me also faced same problem,But I cleared my cookies & history..then login kiya tho teek hogya... Smile

well..i tried everything....nothing works.....but its OK....

Hi blueice :)

Did you do something specific before the problem started? like changed your passwd, typed your password wrong or didnt verify your email address that you gave to IF?

CAPTCHA is an image containing text written in a distorted way. It is used to verify if the logger is not a bot.
for example in the captcha below you have to type toencizes in the box to complete the verification.

Blue Ice, if you can post or PM me a screenshot of the image of your ID, I can see what the issue is or post it for admins to look at.
