Names Nicole, mixed race...indian/english, posted here a whiiile ago but never actually joined the society. And to be fair aint really been on tsr much since. So hows is everyone doiiiing?!?! Last trip i made to india, was to mumbai in february, hadnt been since i was about 5 years old. From what i saw, there seems to be such a massive rich/poor divide in mumbai. The rich being very very rich, and the poor going to down to the extremes of poverty. Now i travel alot, and what i did find in india is that alot (but by no means all) of the people were rather unfriendly (granted it may have been due to the language barrier as i cant speak any sort of indian lang and although they can speak english well, the majority speak in hindi almost all of the time which sort of made me feel excluded), which is rare for a 3rd world country....it reminded me alot of england actually.
Are you a Hindu, and have you ever thought about leaning an Indian language.
well well, we have been lazy for quite some time. Howz u everyone?

hey everyone! name's kavya, am 17. im an indian tamil (from Chennai)...well technically, mum's from bangalore and dad's from a place called tiruchirapalli. lol. im fluent in tamil and can understnad hindi (thanks to star plus and shah rukh!!!) erm...how do i become a member of this society? x
I went go Garba in Tolworth while I was staying nearby.
hey there all....well Abhinaya as you said...in Bombay there are either the extreme rich or the extreme poor and the gap between them just seems to increase. Besides that its an awesome place to live, i hav lived all my life here and would live here till the end of life.( wow that sounded philosiphical!) .Bombay has argueably been the most developed city of India....and its still rapidly developing and growing, I have often noticed that people have a different outlook of India once they have visited cities like Bangalore, Mumbai and delhi...
wat do u guys think??!
Apne = (is it "our"?) ?
Kaise yeh = ?
? = How are you? (in Gujarati it would be something like "Tummeh khem che?")
if its apne (short "a") its 'our'
if its aapne (long 'a') then its 'did u?' like "aapne likha?" --> did u write?
kaise yeh - 'how does this....'
how are you --> tum kaise ho? (to frenz) aap kaise ho? (wid respect)

I was very lucky to be there at the Indian year in Lille(North France). Unfortunately, there weren't many Indians but I was really impressed seeing around 1000 dansers from all origins around the world dancing to Bollywood songs.
12 Elephant statues of about 8 metres each outside the railway station entrance designed by Nitin Desai, the fireworks and all Lillois people danced to bollywood songs throughout the night on the roads.
greetings fellow indians. well to an extent. i was born in wales but parents from maharashtra. so... yeah... happy diwali to all hindus in here!
