Born and raised in a suburb outside of Chicago and the Hindi movies my parents watched when I was growing up was my only exposure to the language, until I was in college and met Indian people who made it a point to speak Hindi to me so I could learn.

Fast forward almost 16 years later and I was sent to Gurgaon/Delhi by my company to oversee an offshore transition on their behalf.   I was there during the Summer of 2011 and though my hotel was fabulous, they had the crappiest television channels known to man.  Even the HBO there had crappy content!!! 
 
So at 3:00a.m (time I got back from the office everyday),  I would be in my hotel room ordering room service and waiting until 4:30am (b/c of the time difference) to call my family and friends back home. 
 
I always had the tv on as background noise as I waited and apparently that's when the IPKKND reruns were on.  Even with the strange title, this show seemed more appealing than anything else that was on at the time.  However, I still never fully paid attention until Khushi was locked in the storeroom w/ ASR and he broke her cellphone.  I was majorly pissed and wondered why this girl ever bothered to work for a jerk like him to begin with.  So I proceeded to google the show name in order to find out the backstory.  Anyhow, that is how I found the episodes on YouTube and ended up watching them w/ subtitles and loving them. 
 
So when I came back to Chicago in October 2011, I immediately called my cable provider to have StarPlus added to my lineup and the rest is history...hahahaa

I have no idea of Hindi.. I'm just learning few words (result of watching ipkknd for 1 year xd)
No Indian roots at all (100% Spanish) so I depend on English subtitles.

I hardly knew about Indian culture before (festivities, clothes, eating with hands, etc. even the fact kisses onscreen were not shown) .

1 thik is sure: I'm hooked on IPKKND from the first time I came acorss with it in a youtube suggestion link. As a result, I've been learning and reading a lot about India since then.

I've been dreaming for a while to read this great story from a book. So I suggest to 4 lions to write it ( in English, please Wink) and for sure it would be a bestseller !

To all the people(IF members or not) who watch the show with subtitles and are addicted to it, hats off guys. I have never been able to connect with anything which I cannot understand and too watch a foreign Lang show and try to learn abt the culture is just amazing
