Stinking Madrasi in Mumbai said...

Hmm... you come across this in USA and say it is bad. What about the status of bachelors and/or people who move to another city, and find out that they can't get a decent flat for rent? Take my case, I have been told to my face that I am not a Marathi/Gujarati/Iyer/... (no offense to any one mentioned here), so I won't get a flat in Mumbai. Isn't that bad?

Chennai chatter said...

Haha, i can relate to you. This problem is rampant outside south India where people the use of English is relatively lesser. If its desis abroad, its doom.

Sometime back in Univ i had the mistfortune to take up some projects with Northys and I had to be a silent spectator as i could nt understand a damn thing.

Whoa.. that's the first time I am hearing something so blatantly.

Maybe, in your ad you must have mentioned, strictly only for non-hindi speakers! ;-)
