Hey guys, I just made this site cause i noticed that there are 'College Problems', 'Black girl problems', 'Asian problems', etc; so i thought why not desi problems where everyone can just come out and share stories and submit typical desi problems. Submit all stories, funny pictures, etc about all your funny hardships of being a desi whether you are a FOB, NRI, or ABCD, we're all desi and we all have our moments!

“Facial Threading…”

Asian girl Horror Story. (via coolstorybhaijaan)

supernatasha:

for some desi people, coming out to your parents is literally not an option. it’s not that they’re homophobic or disgusted or anything (although i’m sure that’s part of it). it’s that they don’t even acknowledge that anything other than straight can exist.

how do you come out as someone who doesn’t exist? how do you come out as something you don’t have a word for, were never given the option to be? 

this is so true…this is so incredibly true.

"So, er, for the non South Asians in the audience who perhaps didn’t understand why there was applause, the British built a really extensive railway system throughout India before they left, and it wasn’t so much for transportation for the Indian people, it was because it’s really hard to plunder on foot."

Even when I think Urban Outfitters couldn’t possibly disappoint me any further, boy do they prove me wrong (time and time again)."Face Gems"? Really? I believe you mean “bindi”. Did you not learn your lesson after the Navajo lawsuit? ~Keep your hands off things that aren’t yours, culture vulture~(The models don’t even appear to be South Asian, you aren’t even TRYING to be slightly sensitive.)This same company has made headlines numerous times within the past couple years for having an “Obama/black” t-shirt color option, t-shirts reading “Eat Less”, and shirts displaying patches that clearly resemble the patches worn on the clothing of Jewish people during the Holocaust. All the while, a simple shirt proclaiming “Legalize gay marriage” got pulled from stores. Additionally, they steal ideas from independent designers who have fought tooth and nail to have their products produced and sold, only to get ripped off.***Please, please, please do not give this company your money. Literally everything they sell can be found in other stores, and usually for half the price.***

Anonymous: I noticed someone else was saying something about the "islamic" star and crescent. While it is associated w/Islam nowadays, it should be noted that the star and crescent have long been used by the Turkic peoples as a sort of symbol (they call it the ay-yıldız, and associated it with the sky), with the Göktürks (turk predecessors) using it on coins before the advent of Islam. In fact, Islam is against the use of holy symbols to represent it. Sorry for all this text, just wanted to say this.
