Really ?? when I was stationed in Bangalore in the mid 80s. I stayed at Taj Residency. Every morning I've been chauffeured to BPL Sanyo (Arakere Gate) to work.
There will be rows of mud houses along the roads. The women do the hard work like road works, carrying stones and granite but the men stayed by the mud house drunk or doing nothing !! Really baffle me
And this is in Bangalore !!
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!

Whatever! I give up. I already went through this before and then got totally pissed off and deleted all my posts and lost my id.

I dont want to go through that again. So you can think whatever you want, I just quit from this thread.

Bout time you used your head. Sometimes it's counterproductive trying to protect a flawed homeland. I quit protecting the USofA a long, long time ago. You don't see me flailing about like you and Raj are currently doing. Let's face it. Everybody's country of origin OR the country the are currently in, all have warts of one type or other. India's just happens to be lack of respect of the fairer sex.
