Double standard: Speaking Hindi - presence of non Hindi speaker of India vs non Indian

This is really getting worst day by day. Many north Indians and Andra people speak in Hindi in team space and lunch during a non Hindi speaking INDIAN presence BUT mostly avoid during the presence of a non Indian. This is a double standard.

They don't care a shit when a non Hindi speaking Indian presence, they keep talking in Hindi even though they know I don't understand Hindi ( even after fucking I told them several times). This is across all companies, groups and teams. I worked in a dozen of companies in USA. Same everywhere.

These Hindi speakers even talk to me directly in Hindi again and again even after telling them I don't understand a shit in Hindi being a Tamilian. Why don't you fucking talk in Hindi to an American? Why you think you have a previleged to talk in Hindi in the presence of non Hindi speaking Indian but not in the presence of non Indian?

Understand these first.
1. About 95% Tamilians, don't fucking understand Hindi.
2. These 95% of Tamilians don't hate Hindi. They simply don't understand and never got a chance to learn. It's like a Mandarin to them.
3. Who knows Hindi in Tamil Nadu? Only those who studied in CBSC which is about 2%, mulism tamilians which about 3% ( not all Muslim in TN) and Bramins which is about 0.5% (again not all bramins in TN) and 0.1% who learned on special interest or by other means.
4. Again I or most tamilians don't hate Hindi. We never got a chance to learn. We Don't fucking understand it. You fucking understand that.
5. Tamilian don't hate North Indians. We simply get irritated when you speak Hindi even after knowing we don't understand a shit in Hindi.

So, treat Tamilians and other non Hindi speaking Indians with the same way you treat a non Indian.

I admit even tamilians speak in Tamil in front of North indian. It's same fucking ridiculous double standard. Regardless North or South, most Indians have this double standard. But tamilians are worst affected in this because they're minority in most teams

    In my opinion, Tamilians are the worst offenders. They mostly only interact with other Tamilians, form groups, only hire other Tamilians and in general have that air of superiority that everything Tamil is the best. OP complaining about Hindi is funny, because Tamilians do the exact same thing. It just depends on where the majority of the folks are from.

      Here is a statistic for you. Of all the south indians i have met at work, all of them dont know hindi, form groups and dont have lunch with other indians or even americans. So fuck you and fuck your 95% who havent learnt hindi

      I agree, Amazon Chennai was one of worst offenders I have seen in my experience. I had no issues in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Pune. Chennai was an outlier.

    Fuck the low life scums who form groups and talk in their own languages in the presence of others. In the workplace, English should be the only acceptable language to converse in.

    PS: I'm an immigrant myself and English wasn't my first language growing up but I always make it a point to converse in English at the workplace.

      @Parotty I know decent enough English but not highly proficient. Many mistakes I make are typos. Understand that you stupid. Also know language is not a measurement of intelligence. Many Indian stupids don't understand this because in India most educated people know English. So if a person doesn't know English, they start insulting. You're such a stupid

      @parotty i think the English is fine but there's just a missing comma and a missing expletive out of politeness. eg. understand that, you stupid (asshole)! and you're such a stupid (asshole)! it borrows from the you (understood) rule.

    I hate anyone speaking in any language other than English at work. It sounds so pathetic and bring bad name to our country of origin (India). But surprised at this complaint from a tamilian. They do it in front of everyone, speaking loudly in Tamil. It sounds so embarrassing. My Russian colleague asked me the other day if it’s normal for Indians to do that. Well he does not know difference between a Tamil and nontamil. He thought all Indians are like this. And I am not a North Indian

      Are you really stupid or what? Both north Indians and south Indians are foreigners to USA. Americans are asking us to go back already. Now you think you have rights to speak Hindi at work place in USA and you are asking a non Hindi speaker to move out USA? Did you tell the same to your fellow American colleagues? This is not North India. As far as I know, in most software companies in USA, the official language is English not Hindi

    As a caucasian American, this shit is hilarious and so strange to me. Minority groups ripping each other apart because they’re in different subsets of the minority. Maybe I should start getting pissed at people from the southern USA? Let me clue you in... you’re all just Indians to most of your coworkers.

      Yes, hilarious. most Indians are divided between themselves by language and caste, and fight within themselves. Racism is extreme within Indians. In fact indians racist to same level as whites. Though most Indians dark skinned, slightly bright skinned Indians think they're superior class. How do you think tiny country British was able screw India? Indians are divided by language and caste, so British was able screw them easily.

      Pro tip: “don’t understand a shit” is really awkward English. You could say “don’t understand a word of” etc.

      but it's tricky because you can give a shit eg. they don't give a shit if he doesn't understand shit they say

      but then it's they don't give two shits if he doesn't understand shit they say or he couldn't give a shit that they want to speak hindi

      If they don't respect you, don't waste your time on them. Worse yet, don't stress over it. There are plenty dicks in the world, can't fix them all. I'm sure you have friends, family, colleagues who are pleasant to be with. Focus on them.

      Do you have statistics to prove only tamilian do that? IMO, it happens accross all community peoples. Not just tamilians. And, this is off topic to thread.

      He said South Indians - Andhra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, all of which are in South India. OP, I understand your frustration, but don't you think you are perpetuating stereotypes as well?

      @eniac sorry that I mentioned only tamilian. I actually meant not only South Indian but hiring same community members happens across all communities. One reason it may look like more among south Indians in USA because in USA in IT field, majority of Indians are South Indians that happened because of growth of IT companies in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. Wash the oil in your eyes and try to see it clearly

    Usually I have seen tamils have problem both ways. When asked why do you speak Tamil in office they can rationalize it this fucking that. Now this thread is mere hypocricy. Why the fuck you say tamils are minority. ? You are just plain old stupid. You guys need a new nation
