Generally whenever we meet an individuals, basic questions afte name intoduction is where are you from?

Well does it really matter? Can you make assumptions / mind set on person's individuality/personality based on which region/part/county/country he/she hails from?

Example - No offense please, like Delhites use "APP" addressing people, not necessarily they respect you but its out of habit, on the contrary a Bombaite will say "Tu" not necessarily he/she disrespects you. More examples follow based on responsesSmile 

Another burning(LOL) question - Why people are biased based on region/country etc.?

i think it matters.... to ask where someone is from? bcos then ppl make connections with those ppl upon those facts..... just like ppl make connections with other ppl by the way they dress, their attitude, their style, the music they listen to....etc.. etc...

just like those examples... where a person is from is a part of the person's identity... so ppl make connections through tht fact as well....

ppl are biased bcos thts wht they grew up hearing... and bcos ppl have this preconcieved notion tht ppl from certain areas are a certain way, and they act a certain way.... so ppl treat each other according to tht info...

i dont think ppl shud be offended bcos someone asks them where they are from.... everyone shud be proud of it... and shud say it proudly... bcos after all it is a part of u!

Well does it really matter? Yes Initially it does.

Can you make assumptions / mind set on person's individuality/personality based on which region/part/county/country he/she hails from? Yes . In the absence of any personal information and experience about the individual, it helps us connect based on assumptions we have about each other.

Example - No offense please, like Delhites use "APP" addressing people, not necessarily they respect you but its out of habit, on the contrary a Bombaite will say "Tu" not necessarily he/she disrespects you. More examples follow based on responsesSmile 

Another burning(LOL) question - Why people are biased based on region/country etc.? There is no bias, it is self defense and understanding mechanism- just applying the knowledge to move ahead in forging a good relationship.

Isn't that incorrect, like if one meets someone from Jamiaca, will always thing with one beat of drum this guy/girl with start dancing... not necessarily true. Right!

No LHji, I meant people biasing based on region, like if someone hails from UP and One is from Up, would suppot UPite more then someone from calcutta.. Smile

yepp.. it matters where one hails from. their behaviour many a times eflects where ppl are from. their culture, their rituals (good and bad), customs, communicaton skills, education, sexual apartheid Tongue appear to make them who they are.
(i am speaking of majority and not denying exceptions here)

one should ideally not be biassed (although is really hard at times, i admit)

Tu is a bit derogatory the way I look at it. I never address someone with a TU unless I am incredibly comfortable with them.

At bold, hear yaaEmbarrassed

Oh "tu" was with reference with Mumbaiya language, was surprised to hear people addressing with "tu" initially but thats the Munna Bhai language eveyone loves... I asure fo strangers it's always app but for friends Wink orelse friends ask tabiyet kharab hai kyaLOL BTW it won't sound good to say "App kaisa hai rey" "Ayee Apun key saath app bhankass nahi karneka" "App aati kyaa kandala" LOLLOLLOL just for fun eg. no offense intended. (man these disclaimers, am so concerned these days, kiss ko kya offensive lagey, unlike me lolsssss)
