Similar things happened at least two times before. She generally just walks away and they leave her alone. Always at ECP. I honestly didn't realize this was "report" worthy, but now she just doesn't go there alone.
Its very disturbing and totally disgusting. I agree most of the Indians are a sexually frustrated lot but this is the tops. Little India is especially crowded with 'gawkers' during the weekends. Very sad.
Interesting, that you jumped from 'probably Banglas' to "all Indians" ...etc. etc..

Not to offend you, but, pray, may I ask, Where exactly does your Royal Highness hail from, by the way ?
Interesting, that you jumped to a conclusion that ganeshiyerv made the jump when zzm9980 mentions both as his wife said they were Indians.

My problem is that to the average person who is NOT from the sub-continent or surrounds, most would tend to look similar. Hell, I have a problem separating Sri Lankan's from Tamils as well. ;-) And I'm married to a Tamil and my daughter WAS married to a Sri Lankan (Singaporean).

I did a bit of legwork before drawing that conclusion for ganeshiyerv - and I am dying to see how ganeshiyerv = Ganesh Iyer could be from anywhere, or atleast not have Indian blood .. !!!!

Yah, regarding you, I gotta agree with you .. but a person like ganeshiyerv generally, should not have such trouble .. or it could it be possible ??

You gotta admit, it's a big country and a Tamil and a Singh don't look anywhere near alike, but we know they are "Indians" So I could see someone from the south of India not knowing the difference between a Northern Indian & say a Pakistani. Most Americans from the north couldn't tell what or where a coonass is from either. ;-)

Of course, ya gotta wonder when somebody thinks they are "A highly intelligent guy with an astronomical IQ" :roll: :lol:

Seriously, if an Indian cannot recognise a fellow Indian, or get it wrong, even after hearing a few words from the latter, it is just a case of a High Class Indian trying to show off that he is of a different class .. there is that Centuries old "north/south" divide ..

Ah, well, Sikhs make it easier due to their headgear ..

Now, back to ganeshiyerv - due to his hissy fit, I am trying to figure out what he is smoking .. :) :)

Doesn't matter anyway I guess .. :) :)
