Do Indians live in houses? Wink

heheheeh,

i tell u my experinece

I told one of my coworker ...to be polite and all when I saw her house saying you have a nice house   she asked me do you have houses there.I said yes. and she said isn't india is a desert with lot of snakes and snake charmers.....she saw in a movie thatLOL

Are you serious that this is the image of India in Western countries.

 

Unfortunately, to some extent yes.  I stay in Texas, where most  of the people are still cowboys and cowgirls at heart.  They have a very limited knowledge.  On an average the level of General Knowledge of a common person is very very low in USA. 

One story from my side: 

Few months back we had a party in our office.  Everyone wanted to have Indian food as many of my collegues did not have Indian food  earlier, so I had to volunteer to cook.  Anyway, just before the day of the party I was asked by two of our collegues whether Indian food has ingredients like eyeball or brains.  They got that idea by watching Indiana Jones.  Dead

I was so shocked that I could not reply. 

 

 

 

This is going so crazy that now i m beginning to think that Americans have not advanced to the Information age.
