India and Indians

An American visited India and went back to America where he met his Indian friend who asked him;
"How did u find my Country?"
The American said:
"It is a great country with solid ancient history and immensely rich with natural resources."

The Indian friend then asked "How did u find Indians??"
Who Indians??
I didn't find or met a single Indian there in India.

What nonsense??
Who else could u met in India then??

The American said..
In Kashmir I met a Kashmiri
In Punjab a Panjabi
In Bihar, Maharastra, Rajasthan, Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala
Bihari, Marathi, Marwadi, Bengali, Tamilian, Malayali

Then i met
A Hindu,
A Christian,
A Jain,
A Buddhist,
A Muslim

And many many many more but not a single Indian did i meet!

Well I don't know to which category this belongs. This is neither fun nor moral.

Anyway lets hope the new generation will think and act 'seamless', ignoring those nasty politicians who mislead the youth by injecting regional fanaticism.

Jai hind!

It's true! We do tend to compartmentalize ourselves.

So true indeed. I am sure the younger generations will be more thoughtful of these.
