!!

Yet another I dont know Hindi conversation with my not so familiar office colleague who is from North East India !

He : So, do you speak Hindi ?
I : No, I speak Tamil .
He : Are you from Srilanka anyways ?
I : Grr.......

May be i should have asked him - looking at his features,whether he hails from China ?
How can anyone be so ignorant ??

Read this interesting writeup linked from thinnai.com !

@Syam : I feel you .

If these guys see any south asian face, they start talking in Hindi.
Of course, we cant blame them for we did lose many offers for not knowing Hindi.
But what sucks more is that the attitude of those that speak Hindi :-(

i'm not sure when are they going to change thier attitude and that day , the time when they start giving a mutual respect to a brother of A NATION... i guess the change hasnt yet come not even the current generation !!!

lets not mind the couple of govt jobs we might have lost in those days.. without knowing hindi..
