    Dear Manju,

    As a Proud Indian...... I cannot accept everything whatever you have said.....

    Some of the things are used only by Indians because of their food habits...

    If you count the number of family members come out of a Saudi family picnic... then you will take back that statements....

    But onething is sure... Indians outside India and the same people when they enter India and their behaviours are totally different....

    Mighty Indian

    Dear Veda,

    That was just a joke.... Please don't take that seriously... Even I am very proud to be an Indian... I don't want to go out of India and stay also... I love my land and its people very much....

    That was a forward sent to me by one of my uncles... So please don't have any bad feelings...

    Dear Manju,

    I dont have any bad feelings... This is not the first time I am reading this joke... Even I have laughed at it.... But after coming over here, I have seen lot of things.... Sometimes I felt we are making joke of ourselves for nothing.... Next week I will give you line by line what is happening with other country people.... Then you yourself will think and agree with me.......

    Thanks.... Keep posting....
