Even i support sunitha . Pushpa, Why dint you ask about metti and thaali. Why dont indians in US wear it ? is this some kind of accessory which we can remove when we dont feel like it ? isnt it a symbol of our love ? When americans themselves are wearing their wedding/engagement ring forever, why dont we wear our thaali/mangalshuthra ? Can someone explain whats happening ? I cannot ask this question to anyone known to me. answer me friends..
