    its too much stereotype sitcom which shows many Indian customs which are outdated now.

    allow me to comprehend it for you.

    Basically, it is India and its citizenry are now looking to evolve itself ( where it is the overwhelmingly majorities sentiment) to where hard work is the basis of how you are judged and not your caste, religion is irrelevant. Also and more importantly , Indians are not just looking at their economic growth, as their claim to fame but rather now take advantage of it; yo make changes to its cultural nuances ( example: where in the past the culture of corruption was looked at as ' it happens' and shrugged off), that held it back in the past in many ways. Go listen to the last question asked and the Indian authors reply.

    The farcical thing people forget is that India as a civilisation is either already dead or will die a slow death through each passing generation. The basis of our children's education, the world we see around us, the language is which we speak (and indeed, write on internet forums), the prisms of knowledge through which we view this world (left = socialist, right = liberal, etc) are all shaped by brilliant European (and sometimes American) thinkers of a bygone era, and their modern descendents.

    How Indians once saw the world, how we understood its issues, is something that has been forgotten for many hundreds of years.

    Learning Sanskrit and concluding somehow that Chanakya's prose is similar to Machiavelli is not what I am talking about. That's like eating chicken curry and rice and saying that it tastes somewhat like chilli con cane (even though it possibly does). Its about studying the world through our own knowledge systems, our own beliefs and having our own perspective on things.

    But why am I wasting my time typing all this, in English, on an internet forum, to an Anglicised audience? It is a very circular argument. But perhaps realisation of one's folly is the first step to corrective measures? I am not hopeful. Where's the kalki when we most need Him?

    From the interview the guy clearly state before he did not cared and showed that he had Indian origins but now when things is getting good i mean when India is a rising power it all of a sudden became trendy to flaunt the Indian origin tag.

    It's not that simplistic- He was a child born in the US and born into US culture, when he grew older, he learned more about India and left for the India. do you expect a child to leave his parents and come run down the streets of Bombay ? he has been in india for years now and you should cherish , welcome such Indians and not act petty. India does not belong to you or any one citizen.
