A friend's car here in US.
Caste Obsession may be !
No offense to that caste.
But clinging on to one's caste even after leaving the home country makes me

It's just a personalized number plate. What does it have to do with caste? Lot of people, Indians included, have them.

Parochialism is rife everywhere it seems! This excessive focus on community and caste is the ruin of our society. We just seem unable to think of ourselves as Indians first.

Yes, it is a personalized number plate. But why it has to be the name of the caste, which dismisses the point of coming to US, in the first place.
If one is so self-centric and self-praising about his caste, then there is no point in living in a broad-minded nation like US.Period.
I hate when people of one state or a caste form groups in a social get-together here and become so self-centric leaving aside people from other states and also the Americans.
This makes them develop anger towards Indians, as we tend to form closed groups within ourselves.

Exactly my point !
That ruined our society back in India.
What is the intention of showing off themselves or their caste even when we are 14000 miles away from our home-land.

Sorry to interrupt, but it was not a last name. People from states other than AP, commonly mistake that it was a last name though
Its a name of caste, atleast AFAIK in AP.

@Mods : If you find anything offensive in the last few posts pertaining to that topic, i kindly request you to delete them.

^^ Funniest part is the use of apostrophe at inappropriate places! "Vampire's inside", yeah sure, the car looks like some vampire's inside. "Singh's born to rule"???

Saw somewhere around Delhi area enroute to Dehradun.

A bolero with "GUJJAR BOYZ" in bold on rear windscreen. Looks ridiculous to me.

I was laughing, but then I finished the last phrase.
then I stopped.
Is there a mystical meaning to this?
Or, "what the hell did I just read?"
Hmm, Related to the recent news piece about chowmein, if anyone recalls?
