      @ChunChun Then GTFO from US and join your kind in India. People like you are what I am scared of for my family. And before you yap your mouth like an idiot again, try to learn about Sanatana Dharma and vedic traditions first. Manushastra (translation:way of human life) the binding thread of Hinduism talks about about sex in three kinds 1)first kind AKA for procreation 2)second kind ( unrelated to procreation) 3)other kind(read trans) Infact it speaks one should not socially ostracize members of other kind, but should accept them as fellow sojourners on the path to enlightenment. I am surprised your post is not flagged from Blind yet!!

      Well I’m no expert but probably this was what it’s supposed to be “when I dug deeper I found that”. When u said dug deeper into her, it kind of seemed like u meant literally.

      I am not an expert either so I don't know but I guess you go the point which is what I intended. It could be a grammatical incorrect phrase but not an Indian phrase. Is it?

      I went to my nephew’s wedding last summer and his mom made the mistake of bringing conversation about my marriage. I joked that it was a great idea, bride was such a beauty and perhaps her parents might prefer a groom who’s well off like me and settled overseas. I didn’t see her for the rest of my visit and neither did anyone else pose such stupid questions again. 😜

      @DEPk35 well here is the stereotypical Indian male for you (as per shitty western media) - nerd, socially dysfunctional, smells like curry, poor personal hygiene, doesn’t follow western pop culture, thoroughly desexualized, conservative, marries as per parents approval by age 30, bobs his head while talking etc. etc.

      @indiepop if you’re different from most stereotypical qualities mentioned above then yes you’ve broken stereotypes ✌🏽

    You are definitely not the stereotype Indian IT pro, but other that that nothing very unusual I think. India is a huge country, with a lot of diversity. Don't get me wrong, I am Indian as well, and a lot of similarities to what you call breaking stereotypes, I think we will get along very well too, but I don't see it as highly unusual. Most of my friends and acquaintances have very well rounded interesting life, well traveled, open minded, quite successful Yada Yada.

      That's fantastic! I'm glad to hear.
      I'm new to the Team Blind, I thought it was only for tech stuff. Your post got my attention because I'm brown and some people tell me that I don't look or act 'X'. I'm getting tired of stereotypes but It's refreshing to see this.
      It's sad to see a few negative comments, though. It reminds me of something I read long time time ago about a wise man saving a scorpion that that felt in a river and people telling the wise man that he was dumb for trying to save an unkind and thankless thing without any virtues... to let it die, instead. But the wise man replied that revenge was animalistic behavior. Don't let others change you; the wise man was a person of good character, the scorpion was just protecting itself. It doesn't know any better, it's not going to change.

I am not a dev, but many of my Chinese friends warned me about working with Indian co-workers and wonder is it real.
