    No, they really really wouldn't.

    If you took a random sample of women and asked them which accents they found to be the sexiest, I guarantee you it would be the Western ones - as they do sound nice!
    Sigh. Again I go back to my main point. They find these accents sexy and 'nice' because they're sub-consciously trained to do so.

    The Indian accent is one of the funniest. I don't know, some accents can be pretty thick but the Indian just makes you burst out.

    Atleast Indians speak better English that Spanish/Brazilians.

    Upper-class Indians in metro cities, yes. No doubt. So? India's an ex-British colony. English is an official language and it is actually the de facto language over Hindi. Believe me, it's pretty funny seeing a Tamil and a Maharashtrian speaking English.

    Hmmm, I don't want to go into details regarding what I liked or not. I can tell you this - I've come across Indians who were incredibly nice and others who were narrow-minded, annoying, immature and racist.

    You're saying we make fun of your accent? Well, you Indiands have the habit of mocking everything. In fact, the only place where I was sometimes laughed publicly at over my clothing/accent/whatever was in India. And I have travelled quite a lot. Nevertheless, in order to avoid neg repping en mass and offending a couple of people, I'll say that I'm not generalising. Simply it's an observation of mine.

    Oh, and to conclude, you and your friend, get over the ****ing fact that the Indian accent in general, is funny. It sounds funny. End of. Seriously. Nevertheless, your 8-shaped head movement is even funnier.

    For me the comical thing/ the annoying thing is that English s a language hich is meant to be spoken slower then most eastern languages. Where asians go wrong is that they speak english at an asian speed. I have a tutor at uni who does this and often I can't uderstand what he's saying! If you want a little more respect I don't think its much to ask you guys to slow down a bit and speak English at the speed its meant to be spoken! Anyone who thinks thats a racist comment can get stuffed because I am not, I have a few friends who are British-Asians and have a healthy respect for them. I just think people could do themselves a few favours by intergrating and being part of our society, not trying to form your own seperatist society in this country! If you want to inergrate and speak properly then (like my friends) I welcome you with open arms :-)
