Goru: So cool! You're like from India.
Me: Yah, I was born and raised in India.
Goru: Woah, you speak English really good.
Me: ... Thanks...(*thinking: and you don't!)
Goru: No like, how do you know English?
Me: (sarcastic tone) There was this brief period of time when the British took over my country and ran everything. They established a few schools here and there. I guess the concept stuck around.
Goru: Alright, cool.
Me: (thinking...yah, really cool to be subjected to opression for decades! Confused)
Goru: So, do you like speak another language?
Me: Yes, I speak Hindi.
Goru: Oh cool! Can you say something in Indian for me?


Did I not just say that I speak HINDI??? They never bother listening. I often want to reply with...Only if you speak American for me. It never fails...they will always ask if I speak Indian. It's not that hard to say Hindi...but oh no! Indian is the language of India of course.


You should have told that Goru - Thu oollu ka patta hai LOLLOLLOL

I also encountered same kind of converstaion many times...

most of the americans don't know how to pronounce Indian Names.. My hubbie converted His name Pankaj as Paul... he end up as pakaj most of the time...... and my name as KEVITA..

You guys don't want to get me started on name pronunciation!!!!

My dad shortened Birendra (be-rain-dra [kinda like sanDRA] ... come on people!) to Biren (be-rain ... is it really that hard???)... and they still couldn't get it. So now he's Ben. LOL

My experience was better compared to others here. It was a Lakshmi puja day and I had gone to the office with sindoor in my maang. My co-worker got stunned and screamed "You're bleeding in your head". I had to explain him for 15 minutes what it was and finally he was relieved and said "So, you're not dying after all". I was like... Confused LOL
Other than that, people always were nice whenever I wore sarees to formal parties... although little curious Embarrassed . I already have quite a few neighbours and other American friends waiting for my India trip to get then Sarees. Smile

I have the similer experince when someties i have a tikka close they say oh my god seema are u bleedingLOL
