Today, my co-worker was telling me about how irritating she finds it when she hears the word "North Indian" (I happened to mention that word somewhere as I was talking, I guess).
"Is every person who lives in a state other than Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, and Kerala, a North Indian to you?" she asked. It has been a very long time since someone asked me such an insightful question. Got me thinking. I guess she was right. I don't recall referring to someone living in Andaman and Nicobar Islands as a South Indian. Hmmm...
And then, I tripped over a couple of facts by the same logic. A Mumbaikar would be a West Indian. I imagine Brian Lara opening for Mumbai with Sachin Tendulkar, in the Ranji Trophy. Haha!
Also, the Darjeeling Tea Factory can be called an East India Company! Hahaha!
Wonder if we can think up more like these? :-)
