    Malls of Indian shops are looted in south africa. Pretty soon, we'd see all in the country wearing kurthi-jeans or punjabi outfits.

    Far reaching consequences perhaps::innocent:
    In the long term it is beneficial for Indian textile to garment export industry.
    It may even lend succour to the fashion and glamour shows .
    I had been to for a fashion show ....
    A Date With Fashion Parade - Pageant
    An attempt to show how fashion is created for jute ensembles

    The Durban Indian High Commission [consulate for the Americans among us] is yet to release the total number of Indians [PIO] dead or injured.

    The Gupta family was colluding with the Zuma family in such flagrant corruption, that all indians are now painted with the taint. Even the simple cash-&-carry drug store merchant suffers. And poor pakistani's have to yell out to the rioters to claim they are not INDIANS.

    Trevor doing his ventriloquism and accents...


    It is a mess in all the big cities -- worse in Durban and Johannesburg.

    Sporting Indian costumes by non Indians could be more disastrous with or ailing or prevailing sentiments against Indin diaspora in South African cities. It could beresurgence of Apartheid.

    Indians have had difficulties in Africa for a long time, because they had seen that the locals are not the preferred "wheatish complexion" that we love. Africans, no matter how much fufu they eat [ look up recipes using fufu on the internet ], they remain just too dark. The idea "you are what you eat" is bunkum.

    Not many educated elites in South Africa had forgotten that MK Gandhi used the term "Kaffir" to refer to the natives. Just like Chinese in Malaysia in the early 1960's, and in Jakarta in later years, Indians in Africa keep to themselves, sell wares/consumables to the natives at [what the locals perceive to be inflated] high prices, and live in gated communities. This is true in Nairobi, as it is in Johannesburg. And it was so in Kampala, before Idi Amin confiscated all, and kicked them out.

    We [i.e., in America] should be watching ZA as closely as we watch the developments in Haiti [ a sitting president is killed last week]. ZA=zudafrika, in both zulu and afrikaans
