Tamils are always proud to be Tamizhs; Pretty courteous (that is what they think, at least!). They speak yenglish but sorry, no indi (Hindi) saar. The more common Madarasi (chennaisi..., now?) is an ardent fan of kireeket matches.
Their counterparts in Bombay think they live in America but speak Hinglish (Hindi mixed with English) like ..."are you sure ki Sujata aa rahi hai ya I'll go akela!" And they take great pride in making stupid mistakes in Hindi Grammar. The BEST hypocrites in the world.
Thamizhs, are verrry lecky to have "simble" neighbours in the "keralites" who are a komblex race of peoblle (they migrated around 2000 B.C. from the middle east, I guess; and now even the Sheikhs feel wary of them) but they eat a lot of chooclyte and own 99.998765% of chai
shops in the world and form 99.89% of nursing community.
Not far begind the kerals is the telugu desam, who are totally againesht flaunting their wealthu to the woruldu, though they occasionally come out withu brick red shirtsu and parrot green pantsu with pleetsu (pleat). Worustu, no?! But they (think) are greatu in CICSu, Microsu and COBOLu! Generally sane peoplesu (and so you can always findu them judgingu, probhingu, queschioningu othersu ...)
The Canadians, excuse me, the Kannadigas aor (are) the coolest lat dobun south but if there is political unrest in Hersogovnia oare (or) an ebola virus outbreak in Zaire, they bash up the Tamils in Karnataka. Cauvery very bad! When it comes to Rajkumar (actor), if a fly sits on his nose, they'll burn the entire city of Benglore to kill the fly! To hell with Silicon Valley! I-ron, firshtu, girlu, Lasht Bussu, roadu, crickeatu, filamu are some of their favourites. This is the only statu where you get "Curds".
Maharashtrians are a conservative, confused, complex lot-kar. -Kar, that is because gavasakar, tendulkar, bahulkar,.. confused that is because sitting in southern part of India they would ask the other person "are you from Maharashtra or from south India..?" and genuinely wonder why the other person takes some time to answer the question. They like the principles of pheejix and their favourite character in the alphabet is Zay (god knows where that came from). Although soft, peace loving people but they elect the shivsena to rule them.
And right there next to the Maharashtrians are the Gujjubhais. They like to keep kes in the benk and their favourite past time is eating snakes like paav bhaji, masala papad and pijja at the local snake bar. They gobble down palak sev like their life depends on it and believe in the brotherhood and sisterhood of man and woman (everybody is a bhai or a ben).
If you go further eesht, the land uf Udissa - the land of irron ("r"
unsilent) where sombalpuroa and Bhubaneshbara are big towns. The people
are bery cordial and if you are Vikram they bill soorly ask you B or
Bhe. They do not sout, sam or soot but occasnally bawsh their phace at
the wasbashin. James Bond Mohanty in our colleze had a roll nomber jero, jero, sebhen.
Bengalees are bery bery similor, but or bery proud oph Subas Chondro Boash and Shoatyojit Roy (I used to know a director by name Satyajit Ray who was also pretty good) and everybody is Xda. I used to havbe a friend by name Dada. Wonder...never mind. Bot I most conphess, Roshgollas are bery goooood, tho!
Bihari kids are supposed to be the smartest kids in India (if not in the universe!). How we wish they grow up the same way,...but... And Biharees are bery phond of Laloo and Ranchi, ka isse bhadiya tumre pass kooch hai, kaa?! spit spit spit...
UPites and MPites are busy going to ischool and istudying metals to make lots of ishteel.
Punjabis are very sweet and aggressive and offer "Rotti Shotti Khayega!" to which I once replied No. He said Tage itu, yaar! By Godu! Surjeetu, what happenedu, oi?!. Then of course, everybodys a paappe or a kaakke. That's Pnjab for you.
And Kashmir (called Cashmir by many, may be because of the amount of
cash spent to keep it in India)?!? I know Roja (or Roza?) was shot (I
mean filmed) somewhere nearby...
But at the end of the day, wherever you are in the world, whether
it is in Sunnyvale, CA; Birmingham, UK; UmmAl Quwain, UAE or Serangoon
Road, Singapore, ask them who they are and you'll get just one answer
