The fact that all desi people know each other is ruining my life atm
yesterday my mom asked me to make daal and I ended up burning that too.
I have dishonored my family and lost all chances of ever getting a decent rishta.
thank you! :)
My mother needs to stop trying to steal all my new shalwar kameez that I got from Pakistan and trying to gift them to other people.
This woman is a legend.
I’d say thats fair. Much like me who although lives and was born in the US, my parents and grandparents are from India and practice Indian traditions.
I am, technically, American. But i commonly identify myself as Indian.
People of the Guyanese ethnicity are kind of tricky to categorize with these circumstances. Technically a Desi person is someone with origins from south Asia and Guyana is in South America. So technically they would be considered latino (although desi and latino aren’t really comparable terms since latino is a term to describe race and desi is an endonymic term). BUT Guyana does have a large population of Indo-Guyanese ethnic groups and I think those could be considered Desi since they do have Indian origins.
I think for sure, you could not consider a Guyanese person Indian because India and Guyana are two separate things….but categorizing a Guyanese person as Desi could be debatable.
Sorry that doesn’t really answer your question, but hopefully you gained some perspective.
My mom does this shit! Once she called me on a Saturday night and I was drunk as a skunk. It was so scary…
naan is made in different shapes and sizes, all naans are beautiful
This truly killed me.
Really? No way. I feel like Americans wouldn’t go to that extent of putting islamic symbols, much less wearing, on shirts just because of the negative stereotypes of the islamic religion cause of the media….but that’s sad to hear. I totally understand your frustration.
