    most indians said roma are not indians, so what are they. europeans consider them to be indians.

    do you consider balkan roma to be balkanites? (me)
    -no, subcontintentals (a slavic-macedonian forum member, on another forum)

    most europeans consider roma to be indians, indians may see that roma look different then them but to europeans it is not clear, because roma are proven to be from india and they are brown, so to them they look alike, they dont look european

    Hmmm this is a big question. I think you are more worried about roma people and their origin than nuclear weapons

    some sounds like few or little, basically what i said and what is official position of indians and their government. notice i didnt said nothing but little, which is the same as few or some. if you said a diaspora people who are mixed but still retain a strong connection to india it would sound different. etc.

    Roma have their origins in the subcontinent this has been proven by anthropologist and dna studies. Soul
    I know you are looking for acknowledgement and acceptance you will find it among the Indian diaspora but
    Indians do not care about indians once they have left even one generation ago. Indians returning for a visit
    Are viewed very differently from how indians view each other.
