com/its-boom-time-for-indian-western-dating/ this would be cool if more desi girls were with western guys! and what is said is very true, unlike with western women....read on Its boom time for Indian-Western dating December 21, 2007 5:12 pm If you are intrigued by women from the Indian sub-continent, whether abroad or at home, then you should know that Indian women have grown to appreciate Western men as never before.The Indian economy is booming and the countrys women have followed after their Western sisters in the pursuit of equality in the workplace. For a new ambitious and strong minded generation of Indian women, a Western man who respects the independence and career of his female partner can be the ideal choice. Traditionally India has been a conservative country where family is prized above all else and gender roles are clearly defined: women take care of the house and children, while men support the family. Like other places in the world, these roles have been challenged by an increase in job opportunities for women outside the home. As Indias economy has grown at a rapid pace, women have increasingly pursued careers and many have enjoyed professional success for the first time. A recent survey for a major Indian news magazine revealed that 41% of young women living six of Indias largest cities have decided to focus on career over having a family. Many older generations of women encourage their daughters to support themselves before marriage, something that would have been unheard of in previous generations. With this familial support, many Indian women have decided to seek financial independence as their primary goal. This trend will persist as long as the country continues to develop. This means that the new working woman needs a partner who supports her ambition. Although Indian women have become more independent minded, this ideal is not shared by everyone. For many Indian men, a financially secure woman is a seen as a threat to his masculinity. Of course there are many Indian men who encourage their successful wives, but for some Indian women choosing a Western partner is a great option. More typically, Western men respect their female co-workers and value a partner who can contribute financially to the home. For the career-driven Indian woman, being valued as a woman and as a success will be the key to making her happy in her relationship. Although shell be interested in her career, for most Indian women their traditional family values will usually come through in many ways. Shell treat you as a valued partner and in all likelihood will want children down the road. This means you get the best of both worlds a woman who wants financial equality, but will want to respect family traditions and values For many Western men, this combination of important values and financial security go hand and hand. An Indian woman will be able to meet you between cultural differences to find common ground on these important subjects. No matter if you meet an Indian woman at home or abroad, shell admire your respect for women and this can help you to connect with her on a deeper level. Shell be a loving and faithful partner with strong family values, as well as a fierce and independent woman that will keep you feeling challenged, in a good way. http://www.thejavajive.com/blog/?p=479 - cool blog very cool http://www.indusladies.com/forums/married-life/99975-indian-women-and-western-men.html ThousandPercent

Moreover, single Indian women are a rarity in my town as most Indian women are married and live here on spouse visas. From among the small minority of single Indian women, students mostly, a large fraction prefer an arranged marriage to a person who their parents would have chosen. Those single Indian women who would like to make their own choice of their life partner generally had a "type" of partner in mind. It did not matter which country the man belonged to as long as he was their "type", meaning he had a certain educational background, values they are comfortable with etc. A good friend of mine (Indian) is getting married to her European boyfriend. According to her, her family had no problem accepting their relationship. And we as friends, of course, wished them well right from the start. Another Indian girl who I knew, had an European boyfriend who broke up with her for the lame reason that she had to go away from Europe for a year of field work. Now she is wary of dating another European man because she has formed the opinion that most men here are shallow and look for only short term relationships. I don't know if this answers your questions. But I tried! Share Reply With Quote Reply With Quote 24th June 2010 08:17 AM #5 Manaswini08's Avatar Manaswini08

State Virginia Country United States Posts 3,377 Default Re: Indian Women and Western Men If you look in the New York Times weekend weddings/celebrations section, you often see Indian woman/White man couples. I've also seen Indian man/white woman couples. Maybe a month or two ago, I remember seeing an Indian man with a black woman and an Indian woman with a Chinese man. When me and my dh visited Washington DC for vacation a couple of years ago, we saw a lot of interracial couples. All of the above seemed happy. I think it's the people in the relationship who make it work, not the skin color or cultural background. For some, Indian culture is the center of their life... their identity comes from fitting into the different Indian functions, traditions, speaking the language, etc. Then there are others who belong to their culture, but don't let it define all of who they are. So I guess somebody who lives and breathes Indian culture, may not adapt well to a western man/woman since there would be a lot of cultural differences. But somebody who is open to learning about another culture and accepting differences in stride, won't find it too difficult to marry a western man/woman. My dh's cousin sister is marrying a white British fellow next year. However, she is not a big follower of Indian culture, so she doesn't mind having a spouse who is only a little familiar with her family's traditions. Although her parents are Indian, she calls herself a Britisher and is very westernized. So for her, it probably doesn't even feel like Indian woman marrying a British man. More like, two people just fallen in love and getting married.

They are happy comparatively. She said that her husband is very loving, supportive and caring. She always wanted to have a love marriage and did not like the idea of arranged marriage. But never thought she would marry an American. But her marriage is great and I am happy for her. I am thinking its the couples no matter what nationality is responsible for the success and failure of a marriage. In laws, money, personality differences can always be solved if the couples stand by each and be supportive.

However, its just the opposite. Ladnier is a full-time mom to her three-year-old daughter Leela with husband Cooper Madison, a musician and composer.

I feel Id be the best mother and role model to my daughter if Im happy with what Im doing and following my passions, Ladnier reflects. Between auditioning, taking Leela to preschool and being an involved parent, Ladniers plate is quite full.

"Lost weekend" Lennon called his 18-month relationship with Pang his "Lost Weekend", a reference to the film and novel of the same name.[7] In summer 1973, Pang was working on the recording of Lennon's Mind Games album. Lennon and Ono were having marital problems and decided to separate, and Ono suggested to Pang that she become Lennon's companion.[4][8] Ono explained that she and Lennon were not getting along, had been arguing and were growing apart, and said that Lennon would start seeing other women. She pointed out that Lennon had said he found Pang sexually attractive. Pang replied that she could never start a relationship with Lennon as he was her employer and married. Ono ignored Pang's protests and said that she would arrange everything.[9] Ono later confirmed this conversation in an interview.[10] In October 1973, Lennon and Pang left New York for Los Angeles to promote Mind Games, and decided to stay for a while, living at the homes of friends.[2] While there, Lennon was inspired to embark on two recording projects: to make an album of the old rock 'n' roll songs that inspired him to become a musician, and to produce another artist. In December

1973, Lennon collaborated with Phil Spector to record the oldies album. The alcohol-fueled recording sessions became legendary. Every musician in L.A. wanted to participate, but soon Lennon's drinking and Spector's erratic behavior (which included his firing a gun in the studio control room) caused the sessions to break down. Then Spector, who claimed to have been in a car accident, took the sessions tapes and was unreachable. In March 1974, Lennon began producing Harry Nilsson's Pussy Cats album, thus named to counter the "bad boy" image the pair had earned in the media with two drinking incidents at The Troubadour: the first when Lennon placed a Kotex on his forehead and scuffled with a waitress and, two weeks later, when Lennon and Nilsson were ejected from the same club after heckling the Smothers Brothers. Lennon thought it would be a good idea for the musicians to live under one roof to ensure they would get to the studio on time, so Pang rented a beach house in Santa Monica, for her, Lennon, Nilsson, Ringo Starr and Keith Moon to live in. At this time, Pang encouraged Lennon to reach out to family and friends. He and Paul McCartney mended fences and played together for the first and only time after the breakup of The Beatles (see A Toot and a Snore in '74). Pang also arranged for Julian Lennon to visit his father for the first time in four years.[11] Julian began to see his father more regularly. Lennon bought Julian a Gibson Les Paul guitar and a drum machine for Christmas in 1973, and encouraged Julian's interest in music by showing him some chords.[12][13] Dad and I got on a great deal better then, recalls Julian. We had a lot of fun, laughed a lot and had a great time in general when he was with May Pang. My memories of that time with Dad and May are very clearthey were the happiest time I can remember with them.[14] In June 1974, Lennon and Pang returned to live in New York City. Lennon stopped drinking and concentrated on recording. As Lennon had previously had cats in Liverpoolwhile living at his aunt Mimi's househe and Pang adopted two cats which they named Major and Minor.[15][16] In the early summer, while Lennon was working on his Walls and Bridges album, the couple moved into a penthouse apartment at 434 East 52nd Street, where Lennon and Pang claim to have seen a UFO on 23 August 1974, from their terrace, which had a panoramic view of east New York. To gain access to the deck Lennon and Pang had to climb out of their kitchen window.[17] On the night in question, a naked Lennon excitedly called Pang to join him on outside and they both watched a circular object silently floating less than 100 feet away.[15] Lennon called Bob GruenLennon's "official" photographer and told him what had happened. Gruen suggested Lennon should call the police, but Lennon laughed it off, saying, "Im not going to call up the newspaper and say, 'This is John Lennon and I saw a flying saucer last night'". Gruen called the local police precinct which confirmed that three other people had reported a sighting, and the Daily News said that five people had reported a sighting in the same area of New York where Lennon and Pang lived.[15] Walls and Bridges rose to the top spot on the album charts. Lennon achieved his only number one solo single in his lifetime with "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night". Pang's is the voice whispering Lennon's name on "#9 Dream". Another song, "Surprise, Surprise (Sweet Bird of Paradox)", was written about her.[7] Julian played drums on the album's last track, "Ya Ya".[18] While recording Walls and Bridges, Al Coury, vice president of promotion for Capitol Records, got possession of the chaotic Spector session tapes and brought them to New York. Lennon would complete his oldies album, which would be called Rock 'n' Roll, with the same musicians he used on Walls and Bridges. Pang received an RIAA gold record award for her work on Walls and Bridges and continued her work as production coordinator of Lennon's Rock 'n' Roll album, where she was credited as "Mother Superior". Pang also worked on albums by Nilsson, Starr, Elton John and David Bowie.[2] While visiting Mick Jagger in Montauk, New York (part of The Hamptons area), Lennon and Pang saw a Scottish-style cottage that was for salewhich was close to the Montauk Point Lighthouse. Lennon asked a real estate broker to put in an offer for it in February 1975.[19][20] Lennon and Pang were also planning on visiting McCartney and Linda in New Orleans in February 1975, where McCartney was recording the Venus and Mars album, but Lennon reconciled with Ono the day before the planned visit,

after Ono said she had a new cure for Lennon's smoking habit.[21][22] Although Lennon would lament this period, he did not do so in private. Journalist Larry Kane, who befriended Lennon in 1964, wrote a comprehensive biography of Lennon which detailed the "Lost Weekend" period. In the interview with Kane, Lennon explained his feelings about his time with Pang: "You know Larry, I may have been the happiest I've ever been... I loved this woman (Pang), I made some beautiful music and I got so fucked up with booze and shit and whatever."[23][24] [edit] Pang's books about Lennon The cover of Loving John. The cover of Instamatic Karma (a title that combines "Instamatic" and "Instant Karma!") After Lennon went back to Ono, Pang started working for United Artists Records and Island Records as a PR manager, working on albums by Bob Marley and Robert Palmer. Pang published her memoir, Loving John, in 1983. It was later updated and re-named, John Lennon: The Lost Weekend. The original 500-page Loving John book focused more on Pang's role on Lennon's albums and sessions.[7] It was edited down to 300 pages, concentrating mostly on the sensational aspects of their relationship. It also included postcards that Lennon had written to Pang during his travels throughout the world in the late 70s. Pang claims that she and Lennon remained lovers until 1977, and stayed in contact until his death.[25] Pang's book of photographs, Instamatic Karma, was published in 2008.[26][27] Besides the candid personal portraits, the book contains some historically important photographs, such as Lennon signing the official dissolution of The Beatles partnership, and the last known photograph of Lennon and Paul McCartney together.

The End of You tells the story of a couple struggling toward greater intimacy, blocked by unresolved experiences of violence and loss. Haunted by childhood events, Joel (PJ Sosko) repeatedly tells Kamala (Poorna Jagannathan) of a tragic event he witnessed in summer camp, which, to this day, he strives to understand. As he tells his story to Kamala, Joel realizes that she too has an unresolved incident in her past, and it has created a powerful fear of the very intimacy that might redeem her. For tickets, call (212) 239-5258 or visit www.telecharge.com. For more info, visit www.litlive.com. "The End of You is about the limitations and evasions that life's traumas impose upon us, and the necessity of traveling beyond them," says Playwright and Executive Producer Michael D. Cohen. "The story is ultimately my attempt to better understand relationships and how intimacy is

gained or blocked between two people who love each other." Director Sarah Gurfield says, "This piece is like a young, hip, modern Beckett play. The moments of silence between these two characters are as important as the lines they speak." POORNA JAGANATHAN The cast includes Poorna Jagannathan (Kalighat with Circle East; lead in Queen of the Remote Control East West Theater LA; Spike Lee's upcoming film She Hate Me) and PJ Sosko (Much Ado About Nothing; Scott Organ's Fixed at the Hangar; Russia tour of an original adaptation of The Brothers Karamazov with the Todd Theater Troupe). Joel is a white guy, kamala is a desi girl. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Housefull_%282010_film%29 The film starts with Aarush (Akshay Kumar), who is seen leaving his job to stay with his friend, Bob (Ritesh Deshmukh) and his wife, Hetal (Lara Dutta). Aarush is jinxed, everything he does is turned upon him, in fact, even his job is unlucky for him. Desperate to get lucky, Aarush decides to go to a priest, who tells him that his luck will turn once he gets married. Therefore, Bob and Hetal decide to get him married to their boss' daughter, Devika Samtani (Jiah Khan). On their honeymoon in Italy, Devika leaves him for her actual American boyfriend, and due to that, Aarush decides to commit suicide by trying to drown under the sea, until he is saved by Soundarya Bhagyalakshmi Venkateshwari Baassappa Rao, aka Sandy (Deepika Padukone). awesome! stories of brave eastern girls who have dared to be with western men http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11529 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12137 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=338 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=400 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11332 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11216 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7658 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10973 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10908 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10820 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10926 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10860 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=313 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=299 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=347 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=329 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=359 http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=361 Michibata was born to an Argentine father of Spanish-Italian ancestry, and a Japanese mother. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessica_Michibata she rocks! http://www.youtube.com/user/shallupadupa they really are adorable. sweet, loving pair....shallu is a desi girl, cameron is a white western boy. they make a very sweet pair, and we are hapy to honur them in our nice stories section. rock on, you two, and hope u get married n have a long happy life together! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Alcroft http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Kawahara Alcroft is married to two time Emmy award winning figure skating choreographer Sarah Kawahara.

Although a colonel in the British East India Company's army, Kirkpatrick wore Mughal-style costumes at home, smoked a hookah, chewed betelnut, enjoyed nautch parties, maintained a small harem in his zenanakhana, spoke fluent Hindustani and Persian and openly mingled with the elite of Hyderabad. Kirkpatrick was adopted by the Nizam of Hyderabad, who invested him with many titles: mutamin ul mulk (safeguard of the kingdom), hushmat jung (valiant in battle), nawab fakhr-ud-dowlah bahadur (governor, pride of the state, and hero).[3] An oil painting of Kirkpatrick's wife, Khair-un-Nissa, by George Chinnery. c. 1805. He converted to Islam[4] (in particular Shia Islam) and married a local Hyderabadi noblewoman called Khair-un-Nissa, the teenage granddaughter of Nawab Mahmood Ali Khan, the prime minister of Hyderabad. Towards the end of autumn of 1801, a major scandal broke out in Calcutta over Kirkpatrick's behaviour at the Hyderabad court.[5] It raised a major furore because of the interracial nature of the marriage. Kirkpatricks downfall came with Lord Richard Wellesleys appointment as Governor-General of India. Wellesley was an imperialist determined to reduce the Nizam to subservience. He strongly disapproved of British-Indian liaisons. Kirkpatrick was summoned to Calcutta, only to be reprimanded and dismissed. James Achilles Kirkpatrick died in Calcutta on October 15, 1805. After his death, Khair-un-Nissa was seduced by James's assistant, Henry Russel who replaced him as resident in Hyderabad. She remained his mistress at Masulipatnam, after being banned from returning to Hyderabad. Later on a visit to Madras, Russel fell for a half-Portuguese beauty and married her. Ultimately, the ban was lifted and Khair-un-Nissa returned to Hyderabad where she died on September 22, 1813 aged 27.[3] Kirkpatrick and Khair-un-Nissa together had three children during their lifetimes: a daughter, Noor-unNissa Sahib Begum and a son, Mir Ghulam Ali Sahib Allum. After their father's death, they were later transported to England to live with their grandfather Colonel James Kirkpatrick, in London and Keston, Kent, leaving their mother in India. The two children were baptised on March 25, 1805 at St. Marys Church, Marylebone Road, and were thereafter known by their new Christian names, William George Kirkpatrick and Katherine Aurora "Kitty" Kirkpatrick. William was disabled in 1812 after falling into boiling water and had to have an arm amputated; he married and had three children but died in 1828 aged 27. Kitty was for a few years the love interest of the Scottish writer and philosopher Thomas Carlyle. She eventually married Captain James Winslowe Phillipps and went on to have seven children. She died in Torquay, Devon, in 1889. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Achilles_Kirkpatrick http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Mughals gitanjali is/was married to Robert Stuempfl and they have a son. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/delhi/Gitanjali-not-told-of-husbandmail/ articleshow/2353938.cms NEW DELHI: The message by a man to an Indian blogger, claiming he was Robert Stuempfl, former model Gitanjali Nagpal's husband, might have caused a stir.

He apparently even posted their marriage certificate and the birth certificate of their son which haven't been put up on the website. http://www.sheetudeep.com/blog/lifestyle/husband-robert-and-son-arthur-are-waiting-forgeetanjalinagpal/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Takei On May 16, 2008, Takei announced that he and Brad Altman would be getting married. They were the first same-sex couple to apply for a marriage license in West Hollywood.[35] On June 17, shortly after Takei and Altman obtained their marriage license, they spread the news by holding a press conference outside the West Hollywood city auditorium.[36] They were married on September 14, 2008 at the Democracy Forum of the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, of which Takei is one of the founders.[37] Walter Koenig was his best man, and Nichelle Nichols was the matron of honor. Reverend William Briones of the Nishi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple of Los Angeles presided.

Kalpana Chawla From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Kalpana Chawla

Astronaut Status Deceased Born March 17, 1962 Died February 1, 2003 (aged 40) Previous occupation Research Scientist Time in space 31d 14h 54m Selection 1994 NASA Group Missions STS-87, STS-107 Mission insignia Kalpana Chawla (Hindi: ) (Punjabi: ) (March 17, 1962 February 1, 2003), was an Indian-American astronaut and space shuttle mission specialist. She was one of seven crewmembers killed in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. Early life MUST READ Kalpana Chawla was born in a Hindu Indian family in Karnal, Haryana, India. [1] Kalpana in Sanskrit means "imagination of the mind" and thus also "creation." Her interest in flying was inspired by J. R. D. Tata, a pioneering Indian pilot and industrialist.[2][3] Contents [hide] * 1 Education * 2 NASA career * 3 Awards * 4 Memoria * 5 External links * 6 See also * 7 References * 8 Further reading [edit] Education Kalpana Chawla studied at Tagore Public School, Karnal for her earlier schooling and she pursued

further studies aeronautical engineering at Punjab Engineering College in Chandigarh, India, in 1982 where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree.She moved to the United States in 1982 and obtained a Master of Science degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington (1984). Chawla earned a second Master of Science degree in 1986 and a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering in 1988 from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Later that year she began working for NASA Ames Research Center as vice president of Overset Methods, Inc. where she did CFD research on V/STOL. [2] Chawla held a Certificated Flight Instructor rating for airplanes, gliders and Commercial Pilot licenses for single and multiengine airplanes, seaplanes and gliders. She held an FCC issued Technician Class Amateur Radio license with the call sign KD5ESI. She met and married Jean-Pierre Harrison, a flying instructor and aviation writer, in 1983 and became a naturalized United States citizen in 1990.[4] [edit] NASA career Chawla in the space shuttle simulator Chawla joined the NASA astronaut corps in March 1995 and was selected for her first flight in 1998. Her first space mission began on November 19, 1997 as part of the six astronaut crew that flew the Space Shuttle Columbia flight STS-87. Chawla was the first Indian-born woman and the second person of Indian origin to fly in space, following cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma who flew in 1984 in a Soviet spacecraft. On her first mission Chawla travelled over 10.4 million miles in 252 orbits of the earth, logging more than 360 hours in space. During STS-87, she was responsible for deploying the Spartan Satellite which malfunctioned, necessitating a spacewalk by Winston Scott and Takao Doi to capture the satellite. A five-month NASA investigation fully exonerated Chawla by identifying errors in software interfaces and the defined procedures of flight crew and ground control. After the completion of STS-87 post-flight activities, Chawla was assigned to technical positions in the astronaut office, her performance in which was recognized with a special award from her peers. In 2000 she was selected for her second flight as part of the crew of STS-107. This mission was repeatedly delayed due to scheduling conflicts and technical problems such as the July 2002 discovery of cracks in the shuttle engine flow liners. On January 16, 2003 Chawla finally returned to space abroad Columbia on the ill-fated STS-107 mission. Chawla's responsibilities included the SPACEHAB/FREESTAR microgravity experiments, for which the crew conducted nearly 80 experiments studying earth and space science, advanced technology development, and astronaut health and safety.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16] Chawla's last visit to India was during the 1991 - 1992 new year holiday when she and her husband spent time with her family. For various reasons, Chawla was never able to follow up on invitations to visit India after she became an astronaut. [edit] Awards Posthumously awarded: * Congressional Space Medal of Honor * NASA Space Flight Medal * NASA Distinguished Service Medal * Defense Distinguished Service Medal (DDSM). [edit] Memoria * Kalpana Chawla Memorial Scholarship program was instituted by Indian students association (ISA) at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) in 2005 for meritorious graduate students.[17] * Asteroid 51826 Kalpanachawla, one of seven citations named after the Columbia's crew[18] * On February 5, 2003, India's Prime Minister announced that the meteorological series of satellites, "METSAT", will be renamed as "KALPANA". The first satellite of the series, "METSAT-1", launched by India on September 12, 2002 will be now known as "KALPANA-1". "KALPANA-2" is expected to be launched by 2007.[19] * 74th Street in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York City has been renamed 74th Street Kalpana Chawla Way in her honor.

* The University of Texas at Arlington (where Chawla obtained a Master of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering in 1984) opened a dormitory named in her honor, Kalpana Chawla Hall, in 2004.[20] * Kalpana Chawla Award award was instituted by the government of Karnataka in 2004 for young women scientists[21] * The girls hostel at Punjab Engineering College, is named after Kalpana Chawla. In addition, an award of INR twenty five thousand, a medal, and a certificate is instituted for the best student in Aeronautical engineering department[22] * NASA has dedicated a super computer to Kalpana.[23] * One of Florida Institute of Technology's student apartment complexes, Columbia Village Suites, has halls named after each of the astronauts, including Chawla. * NASA Mars Exploration Rover mission has named seven peaks in a chain of hills, named the Columbia Hills, after each of the seven astronauts lost in the Columbia shuttle disaster, including Chawla hill after Kalpana Chawla. * Steve Morse from the band Deep Purple created a song called "Contact Lost" in memory of the Columbia tragedy along with her interest in the band. The song can be found on the album Bananas. [24] * Her brother, Sanjay Chawla, remarked "To me, my sister is not dead. She is immortal. Isn't that what a star is? She is a permanent star in the sky. She will always be up there where she belongs."[25] * Novelist Peter David named a shuttlecraft, the Chawla, after the astronaut in his 2007 Star Trek novel, Star Trek: The Next Generation: Before Dishonor.[26] [edit] External links * Kalpana Chawla Family Foundation * Celebrating Life of Kalpana Chawla [edit] See also * Space science [edit] References 1. ^ "Tragedy of Space Shuttle Columbia".

Buzz is that Kim is dating Spanish singer, Carlos Marin and all set to tie the knot in February 2010. Carlos is a frontline vocalist and is member of the operatic pop musical quartet Il Divo. In June 2006, Marin married his girlfriend of 13 years, Spanish singer and partner in several musicals Geraldine Larrosa at Disneyland in California. On February 6, 2009, Carlos announced on Il Divo sites that he and Geraldine are separating after being together for 3 years. Carlos wrote that due to both of their schedules it has caused them to be apart from one another for months at a time and that had changed their relationship. If Kim had a role in their break up, we are not sure. Of late, Kim has been busy shopping, stacking up on designer labels and verbal invites have already been sent out to the couples closest friends. One decision that took all of Kims friends by surprise was her decision to permanently shift base to Spain. According to insiders, Carlos has a promising career unlike Kims acting career, which has been declining steeply. Its only practical that she moves to Spain post-marriage for good."

Weve been settled in the US for quite some time and like most Indian Americans Ive had a conservative upbringing. I had always loved acting and, from the beginning, was involved in modelling and music videos. And I think moving over to films is a natural process. I am a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and films didnt happen to me by fluke. I learn and teach BharatNatyam and this helps me pick up steps easily. Dance masters also played an important role in fine tuning my steps and expressions. I wanted to complete my studies first before getting into this line.

"My father," he says, "is self-educated from the encyclopedias that he peddled to the British Colonies during the 60's. His simple goal was to see the world, so he just moved from country to country, hiring people in direct sales to work for him selling his books." It follows quite naturally, therefore, that Bobby Chinn's educational background is a cross-cultural, trans-global mosaic that included intermittent years of elementary school in San Francisco, a year at an all-boys' school in Egypt, as well as a stint at the Cairo American College in Maadi, until his Egyptian grandfather was appointed Ambassador of Egypt to the Court of St. James, which meant moving to England. There, he attended several boarding schools where, while attending Junior School, he was introduced to rugby and was awarded a sports scholarship to Millfield, a prestigious school in Somerset. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB4bBXuKT0o&feature=related http://cristiane-lovewithoutborders.blogspot.com/2010/08/5-love-stories-love-without-borders.html The Big fat indian wedding Rolf & Anupama I had never planned to make India my home," says Rolf Blaser, 36-year-old Swiss national and chief of operations, Nuance Group, Bengaluru International Airport. But that plan changed when he met the love of his life and, now, wife Anupama. The meeting was planned for March 16, 2007, by Blaser's Indian friend, Naveen, at the Ice Bar in Taj Residency. "By March 19, we wanted to date each other," says Anupama, who's from Delhi. Two weeks later, they decided to tie the knot. "We got engaged while vacationing in Manali," says Anupama. "He woke me up at 4 am and casually asked me to marry him. I said yes," she recalls. Blaser then says: "We went looking for her ring. Before I knew it, I was down by a few lakhs!" Anupama laughs and adds: "On the way back, we stopped in Delhi to break the news to my parents. They were stunned but happy." Anupama is his biggest support here when it comes to cultural advice. "During the wedding when the pundit was chanting the shlokas, my brother was translating the meanings for Rolf and his folks," says Anupama. Blaser is quick to add: "I should know what I'm in for, right?" They married where they first met Taj Residency. "I watched Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding for practice," he grins. They got married in 2008, and Blaser stayed on, as it would have been difficult for Anupama to adjust in

Switzerland. "We always have dinner together. We watch Friends to relax, and love to read in bed," says Anupama. Love conquers all, they say. But does that include language, countries and even continents? Kareena N Gianani and Nidhi Bhushan meet a few who opted for cross-cultural partnerships and find out. No, Aurovrata Venet and his wife Nirmala Chenappa did not meet at a yoga session! Yoga was just something that got them talking. "I remember speaking about the benefits of yoga with her the first time and enjoying the discussion," says Venet, a French national who grew up in India. On the other hand, Chenappa, who works for an advertising firm, was "impressed with his Tamil. He could even speak with the proper south Indian accent." This Bangalore girl and Venet met through common friends. "The first time we spoke was at a gettogether at Take 5 restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised when he came by and sat next to me. Wonder if it was a planned move! (wink wink)," she says. Chenappa was bowled over by Venet's frank and honest approach to life. "He didn't have any ulterior motives. He spoke his mind and I loved that about him." "I was impressed by the detailing that went into her dressing. I was convinced that it was a sign of something very deep within her," says Venet. As for the 'precise moment' when love happened, it was on their trip to Savandurga on January 26 last year. "He had climbed a tamarind tree to bring back a fruit. When he got down from the tree, he hugged me and I knew that there was an indescribable deep connection in that hug." On Valentine's Day the same year, Venet popped the question. "Near the sewage drain next to the TGIF parking lot," laughs Chenappa. Life after marriage has been full of surprises and discoveries for them. "When life gets difficult, it's comforting to know she's by my side. Plus, I can never imagine talking to a French girl about spirituality," Venet is clearly counting his blessings. 'Cultural differences are all in the head' Alex & Shweta At his Hindu wedding with television actor Shweta Keswani last year complete with a pandit, the sacred fire and noisy relatives et al Alex O' Neil had no idea what he was signing up for. The interpreter who was supposed to translate the Sanskrit shlokas in Hindi sat muddled, leaving the couple clueless about the vows they were taking. "It was hilarious. And now, if Shweta doesn't give in to my tantrums, I tell her she's breaking her marriage vows we understood nothing so I can claim anything, right?" That wasn't all. Since Shweta is Buddhist, too, the couple had four weddings a court wedding and a Hindu, Buddhist and a Catholic ceremonies. That they come from different continents and cultures was a relief more than a hitch. "I'd dated men here and found my relationship with Alex truly liberating. Alex had fewer expectations from me who I met, my equation with my male friends, what I wore, how he viewed my acting career nothing mattered more than what I felt for him," says Shweta. Alex agrees that cultural differences are all in the head. "I love it that Shweta speaks her mind and is fiercely supportive. These attributes are independent of where you come from, aren't they?" Alex, then into marketing, met Shweta five years ago through common friends. After hopping between India, Philippines, South Africa and the US, it was Shweta who insisted that he buy a home in Mumbai to stop living out of the suitcase. "It was a turning point for me. Finally, I had something I wanted to come back to," says Alex. But he hates the word 'settled'. "I've always been a global citizen and I made Mumbai home because Shweta had an established career and the entrepreneurial spirit of the city amazed me. But we are open to making any foreign city home." On the reality show, Nach Baliye, the couple's patience was tested beyond recognition, they say. "The judges singled out Alex because of his background and things got quite ugly. I didn't take it lying down and got vocal about the hypocrisy. I lost quite a bit of work, but Alex's faith in me deepened," says Shweta. Alex doesn't dismiss the compromises the couple had to make to be with each other. "It gets

daunting when you're treated like an outsider at times at tourist attractions where you pay thrice the fee, or while at a jog where people point at you and yell out. But the bigger picture for me is that Mumbai has given me the person I love. Shweta gave up her spacious Malad flat to live in a 1BHK with me because I love the sea face at Versova," says Alex. Spending time alone, enjoying nights out with friends and missing one another enough to not take the partner for granted is what keeps them going. "Alex isn't too romantic by nature. But I don't feel the pinch because he brings so much more perspective to the concept of marriage. So often, in a relationship, we shoot our mouth off to prove a point to our partner. Alex doesn't he believes words can scar deeply sometimes and prefers to think before he speaks. I've started doing the same, and I realise it has changed our method of resolving issues altogether," says Shweta. "If you take the cultural differences off our marriage, I'd be a very boring person. Trust me, I am interesting and sensible only to an Indian woman," laughs Alex. Not without my family Yan & Geetanjali For someone who considered marriage as "a waste of time" until five years ago, Yan Garin didn't even have to be convinced by Geetanjali Bakshi to marry her within a year of dating. Then a documentary filmmaker, Yan met Geetanjali in Paris in 2005 by chance during her flight's layover (she worked as an airhostess then.) "We kept scheduling our visits to meet up after that," explains Garin, 36. And that made him change his philosophy on marriage altogether? "Well, may be I was just getting old and gave in," he jokes. Before marriage, Yan says the couple made the best from the surprises their cultural differences threw up. Marriage was a reality check of sorts. "I moved to India because Geetanjali had a career and her family here, and documentary filmmaking was something I could do based anywhere in the world," says Yan. He, however, gave up filmmaking after the couple had two sons Aditya, 1, and Ayan, 3, and started an animation company. "To be honest, animation isn't my passion but that's the price I decided to pay to be around my wife and children," says Yan. Yan admits he had a tough time coping with certain people here who weren't as zealous about their work as he was. "I was too used to working with a crew who was into filmmaking for the love of creativity. I miss that creative thinking." Geetanjali understands this well and points out that had Yan not been as open to change, things wouldn't have worked out well. She says she sometimes wonders how would it have been being married to someone else. "Perhaps an Indian husband may have mollycoddled me, but I love how Yan treats me as his partner, not as his 'wife'. He doesn't expect me to wait on him, and readily stays back with the kids so I can enjoy nights out." Yan believes it's all about understanding that most things work differently here and all you need to do is ask how. "In France, the two sets of in-laws barely bother knowing each other. But things are different here. I make it a point to ask Geetanjali about how I should behave to make her folks feel comfortable with her choice. Honestly, I really miss my friends, people who have the same wavelength as I do, who can laugh the same jokes as I, but I've never shied away from making an effort," says Yan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BpvgoRLOOg&feature=related http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/gossip/2012/02/jackson-rathbone-baby-father-girlfriend-sheilahafsadi. html jackson's gf is of at east partial eastern heritage. http://www.laurenmiyake.com/?m=201111 http://www.laurenmiyake.com/?m=201107 http://www.laurenmiyake.com/?p=590 http://www.laurenmiyake.com/?m=201110 http://www.laurenmiyake.com/?m=201104 http://www.laurenmiyake.com/?m=201004

Like Sendhil Ramamurthy, he is married to a White woman and I am so disgusted by how ugly his wife is. Women consider the guy to be a good looking and really desirable and he marries an ugly looking White girl. Sanjay Gupta is an admired Indian doctor who works for CNN, his wife? *barfs* that disgusting. I mean if these guys wanted White women so bad they could have at least done better than that. On the flip side, when White guys marry or date Indian women, she is drop dead gorgeous. It is so sad that these famous Indian men run off with average looking White women when they have beauties from other races waiting for them. That is why I just hate being Indian. Black men get flak for abandoning Black women but HEY at least when they do it they get fine looking wives like look at Kobe's wife, woooooo baby!

On the court steps, Sarika said: "I am overwhelmed by the outcome. It's been a long journey that I have been on and it's finally come to an end. "No other people will ever be banned for wearing a kara in school again. "I would like to thank all of the people who have helped me with this, especially my mum and dad. "I am a proud Welsh Punjabi." The judge presiding over the case said Sharika was unlawfully discriminated against as the wrist bangle in question was central to her faith. As a result of the judgment in the High Court, the 14-year-old, will be returning to Aberdare Girls School in September wearing her Kara, which is a slim steel bracelet. Her lawyers had told Mr Justice Silber that the Kara was as important to her as it was to England spin bowler Monty Panesar, who has been pictured wearing the bangle. Sarika, of mixed Welsh and Punjabi origin, of Cwmbach, near Aberdare, was at first taught in isolation and eventually excluded for refusing to take off the bangle in defiance of the schools policy, which prohibits the wearing of any jewellery other than a wrist watch and plain ear studs. Today, the judge declared that the school was guilty of indirect discrimination under race relations and equality laws. After the judgment, Sarikas mother, Sinita, 38, said: "We are over the moon. It is just such a relief." awesome! u rock! http://in.lifestyle.yahoo.com/curious-freida-pinto-undergo-dna-test-her-hindu065339527.html;_ylt=Aoxipgqdqh4wekSWR7Q99gGyEsV_;_ylu=X3oDMTN1NzV2YXV2BGNjb2R lA3ZzaGFyZWFnMnVwcmVzdARwa2cDMGVjNTViZmYtOGU1NS0zMGI3LThlZDQtNTZmMjZi ZTIzMGUwBHBvcwMxBHNlYwNuZXdzX2Zvcl95b3UEdmVyA2U4OGVlOGUwLWI1ZGItMTFlM C1iZmZmLTBhN2JlNDMyNDg4OA--;_ylg=X3oDMTJwOTN0dGlhBGludGwDaW4EbGFuZwNlbi1 pbgRwc3RhaWQDZjdjNmFjMDktNmZmOC0zZTY4LWFiMDktYmZiZWVlZjY4ZTNiBHBzdGNhd ANwZW9wbGUEcHQDc3RvcnlwYWdl;_ylv=3 London, July 24 (ANI): In a bid to determine her Hindu ancestry heritage, Indian-born actress Freida Pinto is keen to take a DNA test. The 'Slumdog Millionaire' star, who was born in Mumbai, is constantly mistaken for other ethnicities while travelling internationally. "The Portuguese people love to claim me as one of their own, and I don't like that! When I was in Istanbul for vacation recently, this large group of women came up to me... saying, 'Did you know your last name is actually very Portuguese?'," the Daily Express quoted her as telling Interview magazine. And the star is eager to put the issue to rest by taking a lineage test to learn about her actual ancestral heritage. "I also came from Mangalore, which is in the southern part of India, where you have a big Catholic population. Some of them were forced conversions by the British and Portuguese. So I may not necessarily have that kind of lineage. I could pretty much be a Hindu from India... I'm going to do the DNA testing because I'm very curious," she added. (ANI) freida is proud of her roots, and isn't afraid to defend them. she also doesn't appreciate people incorrectly trying to associate her with being a westerner, as she isn't one. kudos to her! LMFAO, TOOOOO TRUE! we do not make this shit up, we only share the truth, and there's the UGLY ass truth, thanks to some smart people who r not afraid to speak up! ok, i must say, rakhi sawant didn't really gain any major cool points till now....but she has finally gotten her due. she's one of a few gutsy people who are trying to help keep the desi film industry desi only....... http://www.santabanta.com/cinema.asp?pid=35274 Rakhi wants a ban on white item girls Rakhi wants a ban on white item girlsWhen the dance numbers and reality television shows dry up, Item girl Rakhi Sawant might be able to swap her skimpy stage outfits for white khadi and enter

politics. With foreign actors working in Bollywood the latest target of Raj Thackeray's Maharastra Navnirman Sena (MNS) political group, the Marathi actress is one of the few public figures to give vocal support, Because of these foreigners, our Indian girls remain jobless, ' she told The Hindustan Times. These white girls are like lollipops that only last for two days.' The move against foreign actors comes after the MNS raided the sets of Abhishek Bachchan starrer Crooked. Speaking on the condition of anonymity one of the British extras at the shoot states, Eleven people turned up at Mehboob studio trying to demand money from the film unit. What I saw was extortion, pure and simple. It seemed to be about getting money from the crew, and had nothing to do with anything political'. Recent years have seen a significant growth in the number of foreigners in Hindi film, recruiting overseas actors and dancers based in Mumbai, or tourists found in backpacker haven, Colaba. Bollywood has also attracted big name international actresses in recent years, from Kylie Minogue chiggy wiggying with Akshay Kumar in Blue, to Alice Patten seen in the lead role in Rang De Basanti. Tania Zaetta who features in Yash Raj outings Bunty aur Babli and Salaam Namaste, as well as British born Search for a Bollywood Star' entrant Hazel who debuted with Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar, have based themselves in India to work in the industry. so, anyway, kudos to rakhi for trying to do what's right for once, although her own history is spotty in the morals department. we give her a BIG BIG BIG BIG thumbs up for this! In 2010, Hazel Crowney along with other non-Indian actresses like Alice Patten were asked to leave Bollywood by Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), a Mumbai based political party. They campaigned for a ban on the estimated 1,000 British and other foreign actors who regularly appear in Bollywood films accusing them of stealing jobs from local girls. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maharashtra_Navnirman_Sena http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raj_Thackeray awesome......he needs to help get rid of other western girls like claudia ceisla, lisa lazurus, yana gupta, giselle montiero, kalki koechlin, etc. who have invaded desi film and are bringing shame to the culture......he should also ban allowing western girls to come to india with non western husbands or boyfriends, and not allow them to have romances with any non western men there. they also need to spread this to other eastern nations. but it's good to see a start at least. the only bad thing is that he has a dislike for north indians, which is crazy, as desi is desi, as long as they r not the ones who kiss western ass. anyway, here's more on the ban http://www.thefirstpost.co.uk/61078,people,news,call-for-white-actresses-to-be-banned-frombollywood An Indian nationalist politician has called for white actresses from Britain and elsewhere to be banned from Bollywood so that more jobs can go to local dancers and actresses. Raj Thackeray, head of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) - the Maharashtra Reformation Army - has launched a hate campaign to drive the white girls out of town, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph. He is targeting not only high-profile names like Kylie Minogue, but also the wannabe actresses who show up in Mumbai and get bit-parts in Bollywood movies because they are more comfortable than some Indian girls about peeling off their clothes for the camera. "The reason producers pick white girls is because a lot of them have better figures and are willing to expose them," said one film director, Jag Mundra. "If you need a bikini shot, not many Indian girls are willing to turn up in a string bikini. But most white girls will not have an issue with that. Titillation has been an important part of Bollywood." Minogue was in Mumbai last year to perform a typically raunchy - for her and for Bollywood songanddance routine called 'Chiggy Wiggy' with Indian hunk Akshay Kumar in the film Blue.

Other westerners who have taken the call from Bollywood directors include the American Denise Richards who appeared in Kambakkht Ishq, also with Akshay Kumar, and Alice Patten, daughter of Lord (Chris) Patten, who starred in the hit film Rang De Basanti. Thackeray launched his campaign after MNS activists - who enjoy the reputation of a virtual mafia in Mumbai - raided the set of the film Crooked, the latest vehicle for megastar Amitabh Bachchan. They demanded to see the work permits of more than 100 foreign actors and actresses and demanded instant fines from producers for anyone who could not produce their papers. As a result, 11 activists have been arrested for extortion, to the fury of 42-year-old Thackeray, after producers complained to police. It was a rare case of Bollywood standing up to the bully-boy tactics of the MNS. Whether producers can withstand the 'whites out' campaign will depend on the degree of support the MNS gets from local girls. One dancer, Rakhi Sawant, was quoted by the Telegraph as saying: "Because of these foreigners, our Indian girls remain jobless. These white girls are like lollipops that only last for two days." http://buzz.krify.com/11-5289.html British actresses who appear in Bollywood films are being targeted in acampaign by one of India's most feared political leaders. Stars including Alice Patten, the daughter of Lord Patten of Barnes, and Hazel Crowney, a former model from Kent, have been accused of stealing jobs from local girls. Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), a Mumbai nationalist street gang and political party which inspires terror throughout the city, has called on foreign white actresses to go home. His campaign for a ban on the estimated 1,000 British and other foreign actors who regularly appear in Bollywood films has been widely criticised but many foreign actors are too afraid to speak out. Thackeray is especially feared in Bollywood, where he has the power to shut productions and close cinemas. The campaign for a ban comes as increasing numbers of European and South American actresses are finding roles in Bollywood movies. This international approach could now be threatened because producers and directors fear Raj Thackeray will ruin their films if they do not comply. The campaign to ban foreign actors was launched last week after the MNS raided a the set of Crooked, starring Amitabh Bachchan, India's most famous star, and demanded to see the work permits of 136 foreign actors and actresses. The MNS holds seats in the Mumbai region but its strength comes from its activists who are regarded by many as violent street thugs. Its supporters have launched violent attacks on rickshaw drivers from other parts of India and threatened organisations which retain the name 'Bombay' instead of 'Mumbai.' http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/bollywood/7465541/White-British-actresses-told-to-leaveBollywood.html Stars including Alice Patten, the daughter of Lord Patten of Barnes, and Hazel Crowney, a former model from Kent, have been stealing jobs from local girls.

In the last few years, Kylie Minogue and Denise Richards have appeared in major Indian films. Miss Patten starred in Rang De Basanti, one of the most popular Bollywood films of recent years, while Minogue appeared in a raunchy song and dance scene called Chiggy Wiggy in the film Blue with action hero Akshay Kumar.

It has also become increasingly common for Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone and Superman star Brandon Routh to take cameo roles in Bollywood productions to boost their appeal. This international approach could now be threatened because producers and directors fear Raj Thackeray will ruin their films if they do not comply. The campaign to ban foreign actors was launched last week after the MNS raided a the set of Crooked, starring Amitabh Bachchan, India's most famous star, and demanded to see the work permits of 136 foreign actors and actresses.

Its supporters have launched violent attacks on rickshaw drivers from other parts of India and threatened organisations which retain the name 'Bombay' instead of 'Mumbai.' Shalini Thackeray, an MNS leader, said: "Why can't our Indian actors dance with locals? We will insist that only local junior artists should be employed. "We will check whether they have valid permits. Many times, foreigners come here on tourist visas, but take up work in Bollywood." She was supported by one of Bollywood's top dancers, Rakhi Sawant, who said: "Because of these foreigners, our Indian girls remain jobless. These white girls are like lollipops that only last for two days." Vir Singhvi, one of India's leading commentators, said the party was using the issue to win over Mumbai's women voters who have so far shunned the MNS. "The MNS says [these dance scenes] are against Indian traditions, vulgar and cheap. They do this to get women's votes because women object to half-naked dancers, but it's not enough of an issue for women to change their minds," he said. Leading Indian film director Jag Mundra last night criticised the campaign and said it could push up costs and force film-makers to shoot more scenes overseas. To save money, directors usually hire attractive backpackers passing through Mumbai and shoot dance scenes in local clubs or film sets. "The reason producers pick white girls is because a lot of them have better figures and are willing to expose them," he said.

Titillation has been an important part of Bollywood." http://www.indyf.com/jtest/entertainment/43-bollywood-news/99-raj-thackeray-calls-for-banonforeignactresses Raj Thackerays Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has called for a ban on foreign actresses who come to bollywood to try their fortune. He has targeted actresses from Britain and other countries who regularly make a beeline for the Hindi film industry and compete for item numbers and bit roles with desigirls. The reason for their growing popularity is that foreign artists are less inhibited about showing skin and therefore have an edge over Indian girls for bold item numbers, which have become the norm for most commercial films. Some producers are also of the opinion that these foreign girls are more conscious of the way they maintain their bodies and are much fitter than their local counterparts. They also look great in bikinis, which most bollywood actresses and even newcomers avoid like the plague. There are also the trade and business dynamics that producers have to take into consideration. Many of them opt for shooting with international tourists visiting India for a short stint rather than shoot up the budget by filming in expensive overseas locations with these foreigners. In the last few months, there has been a flurry of white-skinned beauties from Kylie Minogue (who starred in the risqu Chiggy Wiggy number with action superstar Akshay Kumar to Denise Washington and Alice Patten (who made her presence felt in a strong role in Rang De Basanti). Not only women, even Hollywood men like Sylvester Stallone and Brandon Routh have been beckoned by bollywood. The ban foreign actors campaign was unofficially launched after a few MNS activists halted the

shooting of the film Crooked-starring Amitabh Bachchan and demanded to check the work permits of over hundred foreign artists. The self-proclaimed holy cows of society then decided to take matters in their own hands and asked for immediate fines from producers for every member who couldnt produce a valid work permit. This act resulted in around eleven MNS party men being arrested after a complaint filed by producers, which further infuriated Raj Thackeray. Many are of the opinion that this stunt was pulled off by MNS to woo women voters, who have so far been elusive to the strategies of the party. Items girls like Rakhi Sawant have also voiced their opinion against foreign artists and dancers in the past, saying that these women are responsible for snatching away the jobs of talented local artists. Whether MNS succeeds in its politically motivated agenda of banning overseas artists in the Hindi film industry with the support of local actors/dancers or whether the producers fight it out against the bully tactics of the party-the winner will always be the audience who will be treated to some super catchy performances, desi videshi notwithstanding. http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/_ylc=X3oDMTI3OGFoNzFlBF9TAzk3MTgyNzM0OARnc3RhdGUDMwRwb 3MDMwRzZWMDbndfYnV6egRzbGsDdGl0bGUEdGFyA2luLmJ1enoueWFob28uY29t/SIG=12t1sr dfd/**http %3A//in.buzz.yahoo.com/article/1%3Ayahoo_india_m199%3A01bcdd0bc2ad4421e7fe7e085555f638 The latest being, Deepika, who would be swinging to this groovy version of the epic song, had a problem with the skirt she was supposed to wear in the song. She said it made her uncomfortable to perform the moves designed for the song. Deepika brought this to director Rohan Sippy's notice, who instantly replaced her skirt with hot pants with tassels over it, designed by Anahita Adajania Shroff. Needless to say, Deepika felt more comfortable in her new outfit and even managed to have 50-60 big red ants crawling on her back as a sequence in a song. Sippy offered to give her a body double but Deepika was confident of managing on her own. Way to go, Deepika! It's a shame the movie is shit. it has kalki kechlin in it. FINALLY! http://in.movies.yahoo.com/news-detail/84414/Now-Egyptian-makes-acting-debut-in-Indian-film.html By India Abroad Monday Apr 5 8:20 AM New Delhi, April 5 (IANS) After Brazilian Giselle Monteiro and Mexican Barbara Mori, it's Egyptian Aida Elkashef's turn to make her debut in an Indian movie as an actress. Director Anand Gandhi says initially he didn't plan to cast her in 'Theseus' Ship'. 'I met Aida at the Berlin Film Festival where she had come to showcase one of her movies,' Gandhi told IANS on phone from Mumbai, where he is currently shooting the first leg of the movie, his first feature film. 'She is just 21 and the daughter of a respected filmmaker from Egypt. She has made a couple of short films and is also an amazing actor.' Gandhi, who earned acclaim for his short films, 'Right Here Right Now' (2003) and 'Continuum' (2006), says he had initially written Aida's part for an Indian actress but failed to find the right face for it. 'Her role wasn't planned at all. She had come to India after we met in Berlin and started helping us out in auditioning male actors so that we could cast one of them opposite the character of a female photographer,' he said. 'During the screen test, we saw how excellently she was performing the lines of the photographer. It was then that we decided to rewrite the part for an Egyptian girl rather than an Indian one,' he added. Gandhi, who used to earlier pen down small screen's biggest shows 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' and 'Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii', says he auditioned close to 35 Indian actresses for the role but couldn't settle for any. 'I can't name the actresses I auditioned, but there were around 30-35. It was frustrating because none of

them fitted the bill. I feel there is a serious dearth of acting skills and craftsmanship here because sadly the general perception among Indian actors is that if you hit the gym regularly, you can make a successful actor.' For 'Theseus' Ship', which is a multi-lingual film primarily in English with parts in Arabic, Hindi, Gujarati and Swedish, Gandhi has also cast Soham Shah, who made his debut with 'Baabarr' in 2009. 'I had not seen Soham's mainstream film when he auditioned for my film but with whatever I have shot with him, I can say he is a very different and amazing actor. He plays a stockbroker in my project,' he said. 'Theseus' Ship' weaves four tracks together. These include a story of an intuitive blind photographer, a monk's ethics put to test, an obsessive compulsive clockmaker with an ailing heart, and a young stockbroker who gets caught up in the stolen kidney racket. The narrative will travel to Cairo, Stockholm and Mumbai. After shooting the Indian part of the film, Gandhi will be moving to Sweden and plans to finish the shooting schedules by September-end. He plans a festival release for the film rather than a commercial one. http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=340 best of luck to all these awesome desi girls and western guys, check this out! load of sweet stories.... Hello, I'm an Indian girl married to a white guy from the US. I completely agree with your statement - "From my experience, there seems to be a belief that, in spite of our TV shows, our media and movie reputation, us American men have a reputation for treating our wives very well". All i had seen while being in Mumbai that how men woo women; how they want everything to go fast, and in the process forget that a woman needs to be respected. I found that most of the Indian men do not respect a woman the way she wants him to. And this is where Americans and Europeans are in a win-win situation. And it was the same when i met Matt (my husband). He cared very much for me (he still does), he understands me very well, he is a nice person - this is what attracted me to him! And when i got to know him better and better my perceptions changed a lot. I used to read a lot of articles on "how divorce rates are rising in the US" - what i did for this is tried to study it, tried to know what exactly it implies. And i found out that a lot of Indian magazines highlight the statement every now and then - only because "divorce rates are rising in the US but in India the divorce rates are not rising" - so the conclusion they arrived at was - "YES! It's because of Arranged Marriages!" - while there is no survey, no proof, nothing to prove this statement - It's all tom-tommed by the media! Another reason was that - i always wanted to marry someone who is outside my culture, my race. we enjoy the cultural differences we have and rather than exploring religion in itself we explore the human origin side of it. Because religion is something that is made by humans! I am proud and happy to be with someone who is the most amazing, the most patient person on this earth. I love everything about India, but i love everything about America too. For us it's not India and America - it's actually two different nations which are on the opposite sides of the globe, and exploring this opposite side of the planet is a joy in itself, it's a very good feeling! Hey Bud, I am a White american guy who is in love with my Punabi girlfriend and I plan on marrying her when the time is right. Before we even got together, her family had disowned her due to her wanting to convert to Christianity. We have dealt with everything under the sun, from her family hating her and wanting to make her life a living hell, to the point of her safety being questioned. We can't expect her family to totally come around, all I can do is to continue to show her the love and respect she deserves so that she knows she is so much better off with me, rather than an arranged marriage that could have happened. I support you whole heartedly bro, and I am praying that you guys are able to stay strong, and deal with the hardships that you will continue to face. We don't have her family to turn to when she is having issues, so in return, my family has taken her in and totally support us. E-mail me if you have

any questions and I will do the same if I may. hang in there! I'm praying for you. Sincerely, Greg heya im a punjabi girl, and i've got a australian bf...for a few yrs now... i wanted to know how ur gfs parents took the new of you both? i wanna tell mine but i dont know how to Hi, I am a white guy who has been married to an Indian woman for 10 years. It has not been easy, but the fact that her "connection" to her family was weakend long ago has helped. Also, we live in racially diverse Southern California where we "blend in" easier. I have made it a point to encourage her friendships with other Indians, which has hopefully compensated some for the cultural difference she experiences. From your post, it seems like you can't live without her, and she can't live without her family...The first question you need to ask...where will you two live? The second question...how much do you (both) want your families to be a part of your lives? If her family is traditional and "strong", you will face resistance. She may become an outcast and be disowned by her family...so be prepared. On the other hand, through my wife's friendships with Indians living here, I have learned that many single Indian women think about marrying outside their culture, (but very few do). From my experience, there seems to be a belief that, in spite of our TV shows, our media and movie reputation, us American men have a reputation for treating our wives very well. I hope this helps Hi, I couldn't find similar subject so I decide to write it as I can't imagine life without the one Indian woman that I know and I love. There is the main basic problem of the Indian tradisional culture - I decided to marry her as I would like to accept an Indian tradition before I'll spend more official time with her but unfortunately I can't do that her because I'm white. I respect her tradion and I am not going to do anything that could make her relationship with parents getting worse because for me the most important is her happiness and I know that she won't be happy without family support. I would like to ask about any possibilities that could make our marriage possible - I don't need to marry her today because she is a woman that I waited whole my life and I can wait more as I know I can be happy only with her. Thank you for all your advices that could make any possibility, even those nearly impossible to do, that could help me to be with her forever. ok i have never heard of a indian family forcing the non-hindu boyfriend to convert!!! indian girl myself and living in the UK, seeing an indian women with a non-indian man is a thing of the norm to me i see it eveyday, i dont know what its like in other parts of the world but indian families in London definetly have more tolerence, not saying all do of course my parents still want me to marry inside my community and would never encourage me to look outside, but if it happens, its happens... i dont see these relationships being an issue anymore, yes theres cultural diffrence but surely the reason the two are together is because each have a genunine interest in each others culture, and language? dont most speak english now? indian girls come with family drama That last line is one of the most important written on this thread - this is something every non Muslim/Hindu/Seikh person has to remember down the line when things get tough. We all know what we are getting into and as long as the other is honest about their family and where you stand, then it's up to the individual whether or not they continue the relationship. I've 'been' with my partner for almost 10 years - I am 34 and we are entering the last 6 months before either she goes to her family to introduce me as the man she wants to marry or we go our separate ways. Easier said than done though...

I know her mother, have spent time round there, she has cooked for me - but certain things from her have made it clear that she doesn't want her daughter to marry me - who is 31. Her mother/father separated when she was young so her dad lives elsewhere and he has no idea of me. They are a Brahmin caste so whilst they are not strict followers of the Hindu religion, it's the other factor that is probably going to win - perception of other family members/community looking at them in the wrong way. Apparently colour/religion doesn't count as much as who I am and my career (ie being a sales manager is nothing compared to Doctor etc). Us two? Our souls are meant for each other but that doesn't count in the long run in this sort of situation. I've always told her that in a choice between me and her family, they have to win. I will not be the person responsible for tearing a family apart - my love for her is endless but not enough to hurt countless others because of it. At times I am frustrated/angry/regretful over the issues we have to face because of the cultural/religious/community barriers put in front of us but at the same time, is it really fair of me to do so when I can never understand from her/their point of view? Hello everyone out there who every is reading this Thread. Everybody has other than the Indian girls parents has expressed themselves - good, bad and ugly. This is my thought as I am writing from experience. Indian families are very tight. Indian families have gone thru lot of hardship growing up and protecting their children and giving the best for their children sacrificing their own needs, wants of basic things. My husband came to USA in the late 60's just support his family. He has nothing but his shirt on the back. He got his M.S. degree and got a good job. He came to India to marry his own kind and not to disappoint his mother and family. Once I got married to him in India to my husband, I supported him in everything to help out his family and my side of the family. We still are helping our families in a way after 35 years. In the mean time we had to rise two children of our own. We paid for our children's education - we are still trying to pay of their loan. This kind of scrafice you can only get from Indain families. Now our daughter is going out with a white guy. I think they'll get married next year. We have taught our children that there are good people and bad people in every culture, every relegion, every race, every country. And it is one's own comfort zone to choose their friends and life partner. Every body has to go thru the life journey for themselves - be it good or bad. As a parent we just think that our kind is the best kind be it Hindu, muslim, christian, jew, budhist or sikh. I think Hindu parents who resists inter racial marriage should know that Hinduism does preach to look at every human being as God. Bottom line as much as we like to have son-in-laws and daughter-in-laws from our own race and religion I don't want to strain parents and childrens relationship. If my daughter and son are happy marrying outside my hindu relegion (I'm a brahmin and my husbands side also) that is fine by me because at the end of the day I go to sleep knowing that I did the best mothering I can. Hope white guy's learn something from Indian families about the scrafices and patience. I know there is lot of drama that come with the Indian families, that is because of the hardship growing up in India in those times. Love Indian MOM I am in inter cultural relationship...my wife is Indian, we both believe our kids will be more superior human beings. as for you comments (what year are u from, who are you) do me a favour please walk into any American embassy and surrender urself as TALBIBAN. 1000 years from now, your culture, race, country, religion and idea will be on the same bin as Holocaust, the world is flat and all the nut cases. Bless u. I know its difficult to see ur kids going out and offcourse getting married to outsider or simply put going against UR WISHES. The bottom line is its better to gain a son or daughter than to loose one. Bless u.

And please dont lesson to nut cases like DEEPBLUE comments. i have married to Indian, and all my friends have married outside their caste religion and culture, its the most spiritual experience. in these kind of relationships one is always on their toes, i must learn and be sensitive, i must love her and her family, i need to make her happy (by default family), and the best part is its fantastic. Our kids will learn 6 languages (at least have access to), our kids will access to 4 different continents (4 countries-no boundaries-imagine), our kids will have the world as their background, our family will be most successful cause we can be here there and everywhere, my family will know the world is not flat and father Christmas PO box is not south or north pole but a capitalistic drama... so if u have any reservations always remember partners in these relationships have the highest respect for their parents. My respect for my in laws is of the highest, they love me and I can speak their language. I respect them because I know the courage they had to not care about society but their daughter. I can imagine 1000 years from now our conversation will be a curiosity. I see it in ourselves, my wife and myself are passionate about our culture and people, religion not that muchbut u know what I mean (and where all the hate and wars start--I REST MY CASE), our kids will look at these things and think why we thought the world is flat and the earth is the centre of the universe. I am sorry but we are in the future (inter cultural/religion/race marriages or couples). Stop trying to burn us as witches (dark ages in Europe) and start understanding us. hi am new here.am 21+ beautiful,nice,honest,hard working,down to earth girl from india. am searching a nice american or indian american guy for myself. y american? becoz i am fred up of indian culture am feeling like am in prison coz of this hell culture.. my parentz are really good they give me all thingz wish i want...but the way they treat me i dont like it......most of the indian girlz cant go out alone ,cant make good friendz even girlz...i told them i dont want anything i want freedom but no use of telling them ..telling them to give freedom is like barking...i really want to get out of this hell. please if any one can help me then plz do help me.. am really fred up....am so depresed coz of this......I WANT TO BREATH,LIVE FREELY AS THE WAY I WANT. NOT THE WAY MY PARENYTZ WANT.. INDIAN CULTURE IS REALLY BAD SPECIALY FOR GIRLS.... you sound like an interesting girl...i am from london and would like to meet an indian girl...it is very difficult though due to pressures from parents I am a 31 year old indian woman, born and raised in canada. I was raised in a very traditional home my parents were both very religious, had strict rules for their five daughters. What I find interesting about this thread is rampant bigotry from the indian male perspective. I am an educated professional female. My parents did not pay for my education, I did, I worked and earned scholarships. They actually only paid for my youngest sister's education. My parents covered the basic necessities of growing up but emotionally how could they possibly understand what my generation was going through being raised in the 80s and 90s in an environment to which they had never been exposed. Our parents didn't go through peer pressure or having the people around us not understand why we had to be home right at 3pm why we couldn't even have a friend over unless they were indian. In the end this causes children to rebel, the indian parents mantra is do as I say not as I do which doesn't work well when I'm being raised in culture of respect and reason. Earlier in this thread an indian man mentioned you couldn't see indian women naked easily for $5, which I found incredibly offensive as India has a thriving underage sex trade market where families from villages SELL children they cannot afford to keep to the sex trade. How is this even considered more respectful than the north american culture? My two older sisters had arranged marriages one is already divorced, thanks mom and dad for keeping her happiness and needs in mind. The second one is in abusive relationship both mental and physical. She stays because she is "brave", interesting right. The indian culture lauds women for being victims. This not just an opinion but an observation based on years of empirical data. I am 31, I am getting married in a year to wonderful Canadian man. He respects my intelligence, my

needs and my ambition. In return I do the same for him. It's an equal partnership. My parents, both of them, LOVE HIM! They love him more than the sons-in-laws that they chose, he did not have to convert. He did not have to face any drama as I had already gone through the drama when I asserted my independence. Yes it's hard, but seriously people, this is your life, your choice how you want to approach it. My parents respect me now the most out of all their children. That's something both of them have said to me. I was the one who asked why, when they didn't have answers, I asked why not? When they couldn't answer those I went my way. Yes parents deserve respect. I treat my parents with respect but that doesn't mean that I subjugate myself to their needs alone. They didn't do that for their parents. They went their own ways after marriage. I know this because my mother and father and I have talked about it. For an indian family to evolve taboo subjects need to be brought up, they need to be dissected. Yes I was beaten as a teenager too but there comes a time when you have to say enough, stand your ground and leave. They may not talk to you for awhile they may consider you dead but after a few years which isn't much in the grand scheme of things they want to be a part of your life. They may have given you life but they don't own it. We are all equal. The Guru Garanth even says that. Actually it says the women are above men because we have the ability to give life whereas men don't. Men who subjugate women are fearful. People who cannot be their own person and use logic, reason and love to discuss difficult topics deserve to be martyrs and victims. All it takes is a little bit of courage. It's not disrespectful to anyone to be who you are as they are the ones that shaped you. It's disrespectful to hide who you are. So to all you men who consider indian women who marry outside the culture as abhorrent remember to talk to your mother, ask her how happy she was and whether she would live her life differently. I know that both my parents would do things differently. All, I am an American man and have been dating an Indian woman for a little over a year and a half now. We have known each other for a long time and I'm running in to a bit of a struggle since she has not told her parents about us yet. We have agreed that she will tell them soon but I am concerned that they will be upset for being kept out of the loop for so long. What is awkward is that I have spent time with them and helped them out around the house, taken them out to dinners and concerts etc. My feeling is that they already know but are just waiting for their daughter to formally tell them. How do I support her the best in this situation? I try to ask her how she think they will react and what I can do to help and mitigate any concerns her parents may have but she has a hard time explaining this to me. Maybe she just needs some time to figure this out for herself but I want to be a part of that process? WHat is making this even more awkward is that they have been trying to set her up with Indian men and frankly it makes me feel pretty sad but it's a situation that is really out of my control. She and I are very much in love and have already crossed many of the usual hurdles couples of different races go through. We are both supportive about each others faith and are very much on the same page about how we want to raise children. I'd really appreciate some feedback from some of the Indians on this website as to what I can do to help her. Hey Greg, was great to read ure story. It is very exciting.. I am amazed to see the extent men can go for their girlfriends.... I do not have any luck with men.... I hardly ever end up impressing them.... leave alone dating them... Well to b a racist clears up a lot of things sometimes....... I am an indian girl... i feel i can impress and date an Indian Guy but never an american guy... I am never able to make an American guy fall for me!!. I liked so many American Guys ... Starbucks guy, dance teacher, so many... i could never ever get a guy to ask me out for a date....

Mayb its bad luck OR i am a boring Software engineer!!!! How do you break ice with American Guys.. wat will make them like in an Indian Girl ? i mean i give up until you can tell me !!! plzz reply I am writing to ask if anyone who is involved in an inter-racial relationship (possibly an Indian woman with a white male) would take part in my final year project? It is basically based on experiences which occur due to being in a mixed background relationship. It will just involve you answering questions in depth and being able to share your experiences with me. I am not biased in any way as I am interested in this topic as I myself am an Indian woman and currently in a 7-year relationship with a white male. I would very much appreciate your time as I am struggling to find participants! Thank you. I am an Indian woman with white boyfriend. We live in the US and are perfectly happy together. I know that my parents would not approve of this relationship. They, like most Indian families, want me to get an arranged marriage. However, i have made my decision to be with the man that I love and am happy with. Not all Indian men are bad. Many people in my extended family have had successful arranged marriages . I think it depends on the person. I also dated an Indian guy a couple of years ago and it didn't work out, not because he was Indian but because we were not compatible. Then I met my current boyfriend and things have been going very well between us. Again, this is not because he is white but because we are compatible. Anyway, without going into too much into my life. this is what I would say It really depends on what the two people involved in a relationship want. For some women, the social pressure is more important and they would conform to the existing social norms no matter what you do. Others, who are non-conformists will not go by the race, wealth of a man and would make their decision based on other things. I personally think that the society has decided what is right for you and if you don't do it, they will criticize you but will forget about it 10 years down the line and you will still be bearing the consequences. So, do what you think would make you happy. Hi all, I read your posts about your relationships so I thought I would share a little bit of mine and ask you some specific questions. I'm 26yrs old and I'm Indian (came here at 16yrs old w/parents) who has lived in CA for the last 10years. At 19 yrs old I left home because my parents were abusive and suffered from alcoholism. The whole alcoholism thing got worse after we came to the US and I was extremely depressed so my friends helped me leave my house and since then I have been disowned by my parents (although now, we do talk occasionally); I have not been back home since then. I struggled a lot but still managed to keep myself in school and that's where I met my fiance Anthony...that was in June 2006. Anthony and I have lived together since Aug 2007 and his family is extremely supportive of our relationship. They've been my foundation and they're my only family now, along with my two brothers who also have left home recently. Anthony and I are about to get married in October and of course none of my family is going to be there which makes me sad at times so I was wondering if you guys have some words of wisdom for me that will help me get over the fact that my family won't be there. Even though we're not having an extravagant wedding, I wanted to wear an Indian outfit but I was wondering if that would look awkward with only me dressed up in Indian clothes and the others are in western clothing. Anthony has been asking me if I want him to wear an Indian Sheerwani instead of a suit and I liked that idea because we're having an American wedding so I won't feel so left out if he was to look Indian as well Anyway, its not the end of the world but I was wondering what you guys think. I am trying to at least get my brothers to be present for my wedding but we'll see how all that goes. And it sucks to say this but a part of me is glad that my parents won't be there because I feel like they would be such an embarrassment and a reminder of all the terrible years of childhood even though a part of me wishes things were different and that I did have the perfect relationship with my family. Although I did tell my parents that

I am getting married and that I'm getting married to a white guy (they saw his picture that I sent them) but they did not jump up and down with joy or anything in response and neither did they yell at me and say I'm useless and that I've ended up useless like they always liked to say. Either way, it's been years since I left so there is a detachment that seems to get greater by the years on both ends. Should I just cut contact with them entirely? I completely agree with you. I myself ( being sikh) have been disowned by my parents when I married my canadian bf. We've been married 4 years now and we have a 2 year old daughter. They have never met my hubby and will probably never want to meet my daughter. That being said, our marriage is stronger than ever and our daughter has everything she needs. It can be difficult when your family members turn their backs on you but it also shows how much you mean to them. I think it's their loss to not have met their first grandchild. I also think love is above all. I can only hope I am a better parent to my child than my parents were to me. G-Sidhu, I am a Sikh female who recently informed her parents. I have been dealing with phone calls begging me to come home and end the relationship.The difficult is my sibilings who i thought would be somewhat supportive are advising me to come home and this is a mistake. How did you deal with this? Helo, I am a white english guy, and I am madly in love with a Punjabi woman. We have been together for over three years, and in this time I have learnt that we are simply perfect for each other. We have always been open with each other about what would happen if we told her father, and how this may prevent us from ever being a family. The pressure got to her in the end and the past 2 weeks hav been a futile effort to see a way around the Indian cultural point of view, ending with us breaking up to keep her family together. The fact is that i would never ask or want her to give up her family for me, i want her to be happy, and without the support of her family she would not be happy. The most annoying thing about this situation is that i no she feels the same about me as i do her, and that there is no way for us to have a relationship unless it is in secret (and i have seen how hard she finds this, so i can no longer ask her to do this) Basically I didn't think it was possible to connect with another person in the way i have with her, and the fact i have to let this go due to an unjustified cultural perception of what is the right thing to do is driving me mental!. I no there is no solution to this problem, for any of us in this situation. The only thing we can do is at every opportunity we are given in life to change or influence this cultural belief we should take it. For those who do go all the way and tell the family, encourage those you know in similar situations to do the same, and support each other. The only fix to this is a long one - give this freedom to your children, and let them love the people they meet. The only sustainable culture, is a culture that changes, so do anything you can to change what you feel is wrong, otherwise this issue will continue to destroy love between people who love so intensely. I have a romantic view on life and believe that life is beautiful, and the relationships we make with people are what life is about, I also believe that love is a beautiful emotion, and truly believe you can't choose who you fall in love with, thats what makes it so ****ing beautiful. yes this is cheese but dont let my lack of articulated sentences draw you from the emotion i've put into this message, and how real these emotions are for every single person on the face of this planet! thanku 4 reading this. Bardot's book was also against "the mixing of genes"; made attacks on modern art, which Bardot equated with "shit"; drew similarities between French politicians and weather vanes; and compared her own beliefs with previous generations who had "given their lives to push out invaders.

this girl is another western convert to islam and is married to another western guy. im glad to see more of this. i wish fellow sikhs, other girls who convert to islam, and those who convert to other faiths like hinduism, bhuddism, etc would follow suit, and that they'd also not stray into cults. http://picasaweb.google.com/carolnoble52 whilst i'll clearly admit that desi fashions make her look more like a tourist and do not suit her at all, mrs. carol noble is a very good gori. she's married to another gora (his name is robert and he's from England!), but has adopted 2 indian boys. http://www.iccorp.com/winter_2007.htm http://www.iccorp.com/images/Carol_Noble.jpg Introducing Carol Noble Carol Noble has worked as an editor for nearly 30 years for a diverse client list that includes publishing stalwarts such as Prentice Hall, Addison-Wesley, and Harvard University Press as well as advertising giants Digitas and Arnold. During that time she has also taught copyediting and proofreading at Northeastern University and hired, trained, and managed an in-house professional staff of editors and proofreaders for a Boston-area production company. All of this experience will come into play as Ms. Noble mentors Macmillan's editors not only in the fine points of English grammar but in the subtleties of American usage and idiom. She will also be implementing metrics and organizing editing staff into tiered teams so that new hires will benefit from the supervision and experience of older hands. She is excited about her new assignment and sums up her challenge by saying: "My aim is to make the copyeditor invisible to the client - that is, our clients should not be able to tell where their text was edited, here or stateside." Ms. Noble is a native of the Boston, Massachusetts area, with a family history that stretches back to the Mayflower. Her immediate family, however, are more recent arrivals: her husband, Robert, was born and raised in England, and her children, Kali Jaba and John Henry, were adopted from Kolkatta as infants. All four appreciate the irony in the fact that, when her family visits this spring, it will be American-born Mom who will be showing her NRI* kids around India! Ms. Noble has a bachelor's degree in literature from the University of New Hampshire and a master's degree in writing from Stanford University. We wish Ms. Noble all the very best and an enjoyable stint with Macmillan. http://www.boston.com/travel/getaways/asia/gallery/around_delhi_india?pg=8 and we too also wish Mrs. Noble the best, despite our recoomendations that she stick to western fashion.....she is doing a wonderful job of keeping her culture intact yet is helping our people thrive. Now, make sure you encourage your adopted boys to find desi wives and to help them thrive as well! rock on carol ji! I will say that not all white people are bad. And not all white people who are interested in other cultures are bad...in fact, just the opposite. BUT the line is drawn when they go from simply respecting that culture, to trying to marry into the culture, and emulate the culture too far. A respect for other cultures, and understand other cultures is always welcomed and encouraged, but often people try to manipulate and take advantage of this as a way to exploit others for their own ill gains. Matter of fact, some of the 3 H O links are courtesy of a Gori Sikh woman who is an amazingly wonderful Sikh and a wonderful person. Her blog is here http://www.kamallarosekaur.wordpress.com . She is a former 3 H O member, still Sikh but not 3 H O. She is happily married to another westerner, and now works to get the word out about how false 3 H O are. If more Goris were like her, we could truly smile and say 'Gori' with a good feeling in our hearts. She embodies the values that western Sikhs should have.......of course we don't expect and often prefer westerners don't try to over involve themselves with things other than western culture, because then they exploit it, but having a respectful knowledge of India, and helping Indians (and others) keep their culture and stick to their culture is one thing that sets apart the true western Sikhs from the false. This woman is one of those rare Gori Sikhs who do have respect for Sikhism, and for Desi people. Others

should look to this woman as a role model when they become Sikh in the west. She has made her mistakes, but has learnt from them, and she is helping others see reality. Rock on, Kamalla Rose! Lastly, We have some exciting news to share with you! We have our own petition which aims too restore morals to our culture by banning western women from marrying or romancing wstern men, and to ban promotion of their practice in media and on the internet. Please sign it and get the word spread! http://www.petitiononline.com/tkboci/petition.html * please note that the address used is NOT our main contact adress, and any mail sent to the address will NOT be answered. Thank you. 'To: Worldwide Politicians This petition seeks to establish a successful worldwide ban on western women marrying and/or having romantic relations with eastern men (Men of the Indian subcontinent and countries,islands, possessions, etc. there of, Arab/Middle eastern men, and Asian men), not based on their skin colour or background, but rather for the natural behaviours that both they and the Eastern cultured men who are attracted to them possess, and because by their acts, they help Eastern men further erode the morals of their culture, and cause the further decline of respect towards women of their own cultures. They help these men fill dangerous and inappropriate fantasies, as well as seeking money, attention, and sex for them self, despite what tricks they attempt. Also crucial - a ban on these western women who enter the country with an eastern husband or boyfriend, and the banning of them finding one while here, and marrying one, which would include a ban on 'masala weddings' involving a western woman and eastern man, rendering all current and future marriages as invalid and annulled. Lastly, and also crucial would be a ban on all media (movies, Telly/TV, books, music, etc.) , including internet related media (social networks, websites, etc.) that promote western women romantically involved with eastern men. Those who would be exempt from the ban would be the following: Western men who wish to have relationships with eastern women, gay and lesbians (of any race), and western women who wish to marry a western man (of any race - be it black, white, or latino) in the cultural tradition of an eastern culture country, because although some of us may not feel comfortable with it, they are not doing anything immoral by this. Please send this to as many people as you can, and have them do the same so that we can fight the immorality! ' Thanks to our supporters, you folks don't realize the amount of good you are doing! this was so well put! 'the white people in america and other countries should stick to being true in the religions they were born into. I am a Singh in London, and it makes me sick when i see gora Sikh wanabes they do shame to the real Sikh panth with their frantics and theatrics. u are not the sons and daughters of matyrs like the real Sikhs are. Sikhi is not in your blood like the sons and daughters of Punjab. That does not go for saying that Sikhs do not do shame to their own religion but....Like a great man Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa said: Sikh should be a true Sikh, Hindhu true Hindhu, and Muslim true to Islam etc. ' http://www.factnet.org/discus/messages/3/66.html i will say that its ok for a person to follow whatever faith they feel best suited to, however, many people, and especially most who convert to eastern religions do it not because they truly believe in what they are following, and worse yet, often don't research properly the differences between cults and the actual religion, nor do they consider how to properly respect their own culture AND that of the culture/religion they are considering or trying to follow. This is very important. baba ramdev dislikes western culture, and is very patriotic to the morals of our india. he rocks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Ram_Sena normally i don't write about (or support) right wing groups, but these folks seem to be doing good. they held protests against the wetsernization on valentine's day that I had mentioned earlier. www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzYnJu18VG0

Now, let's take a look at some nicer and more positive things. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100822103156AAens9g When Indian men date or marry a White woman, she is average to ugly, when White men date or marry an Indian? woman, she is usually good looking, am I the only one that finds this to be extremely sad? Like Sendhil Ramamurthy, he is married to a White woman and I am so disgusted by how ugly his wife is. Women consider the guy to be a good looking and really desirable and he marries an ugly looking White girl. Sanjay Gupta is an admired Indian doctor who works for CNN, his wife? *barfs* that disgusting. I mean if these guys wanted White women so bad they could have at least done better than that. On the flip side, when White guys marry or date Indian women, she is drop dead gorgeous. It is so sad that these famous Indian men run off with average looking White women when they have beauties from other races waiting for them. That is why I just hate being Indian. Black men get flak for abandoning Black women but HEY at least when they do it they get fine looking wives like look at Kobe's wife, woooooo baby! Man I hate being Indian, dumb White worshipping scumbags. Best Answer - Chosen by Asker omg that's soo true!! i see many indian men married to ugly looking white girls ( i live in india btw )i mean the men aren't tht bad themselves but i don't know where they find such ugly women.. it almost looks like they are obsessed with white complexion and are big time sell outs we indian girls do have class =D till now i've never seen an indian girl married to a white guy 11 months ago LMFAO! Yea, I am black and a lot of hot-@ss white girls hit on me all the daytime. Even in front of their boyfriends. I always have this white chick who will hit on me in front of her white boyfriend and she can see the boy is standing their jealous cocking an attitude with me and her. Lucky for white males, I am gay and can't take advantage of this. I only like males! Love Indian men by the way! dj PIERRE dj PIERRE lol i've noticed that too and it's not just with indian men but also black men and east asian men. For some reason a lot of them just settle with average looking white women when they could get the creme dela creme in there own race or other races (non-whites).. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/2146153/Sikh-schoolgirl-told-bracelet-a-matter-of-faithnotfashion. html http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/2008/07/29/sikh-girl-wins-her-high-courtbanglebattle91466-21423522/ ok she may not be the most gorgeous mixed girl, but she's awesome. we don't care how beautiful or not she is. her mum is punjabi n her father is welsh. she defended her wearing a kara SIKH teenager Sarika Watkins-Singh today won her High Court discrimination claim against Aberdare Girls' School, in South Wales, which excluded her for breaking its rules on jewellery by refusing to take off a religious bangle.

On the court steps, Sarika said: "I am overwhelmed by the outcome. It's been a long journey that I have been on and it's finally come to an end. "No other people will ever be banned for wearing a kara in school again. "I would like to thank all of the people who have helped me with this, especially my mum and dad. "I am a proud Welsh Punjabi." The judge presiding over the case said Sharika was unlawfully discriminated against as the wrist bangle in question was central to her faith. As a result of the judgment in the High Court, the 14-year-old, will be returning to Aberdare Girls School in September wearing her Kara, which is a slim steel bracelet. Her lawyers had told Mr Justice Silber that the Kara was as important to her as it was to England spin bowler Monty Panesar, who has been pictured wearing the bangle. Sarika, of mixed Welsh and Punjabi origin, of Cwmbach, near Aberdare, was at first taught in isolation and eventually excluded for refusing to take off the bangle in defiance of the schools policy, which prohibits the wearing of any jewellery other than a wrist watch and plain ear studs. Today, the judge declared that the school was guilty of indirect discrimination under race relations and equality laws. After the judgment, Sarikas mother, Sinita, 38, said: "We are over the moon. It is just such a relief." awesome! u rock! http://in.lifestyle.yahoo.com/curious-freida-pinto-undergo-dna-test-her-hindu065339527.html;_ylt=Aoxipgqdqh4wekSWR7Q99gGyEsV_;_ylu=X3oDMTN1NzV2YXV2BGNjb2R lA3ZzaGFyZWFnMnVwcmVzdARwa2cDMGVjNTViZmYtOGU1NS0zMGI3LThlZDQtNTZmMjZi ZTIzMGUwBHBvcwMxBHNlYwNuZXdzX2Zvcl95b3UEdmVyA2U4OGVlOGUwLWI1ZGItMTFlM C1iZmZmLTBhN2JlNDMyNDg4OA--;_ylg=X3oDMTJwOTN0dGlhBGludGwDaW4EbGFuZwNlbi1 pbgRwc3RhaWQDZjdjNmFjMDktNmZmOC0zZTY4LWFiMDktYmZiZWVlZjY4ZTNiBHBzdGNhd ANwZW9wbGUEcHQDc3RvcnlwYWdl;_ylv=3 London, July 24 (ANI): In a bid to determine her Hindu ancestry heritage, Indian-born actress Freida Pinto is keen to take a DNA test. The 'Slumdog Millionaire' star, who was born in Mumbai, is constantly mistaken for other ethnicities while travelling internationally. "The Portuguese people love to claim me as one of their own, and I don't like that! When I was in Istanbul for vacation recently, this large group of women came up to me... saying, 'Did you know your last name is actually very Portuguese?'," the Daily Express quoted her as telling Interview magazine. And the star is eager to put the issue to rest by taking a lineage test to learn about her actual ancestral heritage. "I also came from Mangalore, which is in the southern part of India, where you have a big Catholic population. Some of them were forced conversions by the British and Portuguese. So I may not necessarily have that kind of lineage. I could pretty much be a Hindu from India... I'm going to do the DNA testing because I'm very curious," she added. (ANI) freida is proud of her roots, and isn't afraid to defend them. she also doesn't appreciate people incorrectly trying to associate her with being a westerner, as she isn't one. kudos to her! we do not make this shit up, we only share the truth, and there's the UGLY ass truth, thanks to some smart people who r not afraid to speak up! ok, i must say, rakhi sawant didn't really gain any major cool points till now....but she has finally gotten her due. she's one of a few gutsy people who are trying to help keep the desi film industry desi only....... http://www.santabanta.com/cinema.asp?pid=35274 Rakhi wants a ban on white item girls Rakhi wants a ban on white item girlsWhen the dance numbers and reality television shows dry up, Item girl Rakhi Sawant might be able to swap her skimpy stage outfits for white khadi and enter politics.

With foreign actors working in Bollywood the latest target of Raj Thackeray's Maharastra Navnirman Sena (MNS) political group, the Marathi actress is one of the few public figures to give vocal support, Because of these foreigners, our Indian girls remain jobless, ' she told The Hindustan Times. These white girls are like lollipops that only last for two days.' The move against foreign actors comes after the MNS raided the sets of Abhishek Bachchan starrer Crooked. Speaking on the condition of anonymity one of the British extras at the shoot states, Eleven people turned up at Mehboob studio trying to demand money from the film unit.

Recent years have seen a significant growth in the number of foreigners in Hindi film, recruiting overseas actors and dancers based in Mumbai, or tourists found in backpacker haven, Colaba. Bollywood has also attracted big name international actresses in recent years, from Kylie Minogue chiggy wiggying with Akshay Kumar in Blue, to Alice Patten seen in the lead role in Rang De Basanti. Tania Zaetta who features in Yash Raj outings Bunty aur Babli and Salaam Namaste, as well as British born Search for a Bollywood Star' entrant Hazel who debuted with Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar, have based themselves in India to work in the industry. so, anyway, kudos to rakhi for trying to do what's right for once, although her own history is spotty in the morals department. we give her a BIG BIG BIG BIG thumbs up for this! In 2010, Hazel Crowney along with other non-Indian actresses like Alice Patten were asked to leave Bollywood by Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), a Mumbai based political party. They campaigned for a ban on the estimated 1,000 British and other foreign actors who regularly appear in Bollywood films accusing them of stealing jobs from local girls. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maharashtra_Navnirman_Sena http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raj_Thackeray awesome......he needs to help get rid of other western girls like claudia ceisla, lisa lazurus, yana gupta, giselle montiero, kalki koechlin, etc. who have invaded desi film and are bringing shame to the culture......he should also ban allowing western girls to come to india with non western husbands or boyfriends, and not allow them to have romances with any non western men there. they also need to spread this to other eastern nations. but it's good to see a start at least. the only bad thing is that he has a dislike for north indians, which is crazy, as desi is desi, as long as they r not the ones who kiss western ass. anyway, here's more on the ban http://www.thefirstpost.co.uk/61078,people,news,call-for-white-actresses-to-be-banned-frombollywood An Indian nationalist politician has called for white actresses from Britain and elsewhere to be banned from Bollywood so that more jobs can go to local dancers and actresses. Raj Thackeray, head of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) - the Maharashtra Reformation Army - has launched a hate campaign to drive the white girls out of town, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph. He is targeting not only high-profile names like Kylie Minogue, but also the wannabe actresses who show up in Mumbai and get bit-parts in Bollywood movies because they are more comfortable than some Indian girls about peeling off their clothes for the camera. "The reason producers pick white girls is because a lot of them have better figures and are willing to expose them," said one film director, Jag Mundra. "If you need a bikini shot, not many Indian girls are willing to turn up in a string bikini. But most white girls will not have an issue with that. Titillation has been an important part of Bollywood." Minogue was in Mumbai last year to perform a typically raunchy - for her and for Bollywood songanddance routine called 'Chiggy Wiggy' with Indian hunk Akshay Kumar in the film Blue. Other westerners who have taken the call from Bollywood directors include the American Denise

Richards who appeared in Kambakkht Ishq, also with Akshay Kumar, and Alice Patten, daughter of Lord (Chris) Patten, who starred in the hit film Rang De Basanti. Thackeray launched his campaign after MNS activists - who enjoy the reputation of a virtual mafia in Mumbai - raided the set of the film Crooked, the latest vehicle for megastar Amitabh Bachchan. They demanded to see the work permits of more than 100 foreign actors and actresses and demanded instant fines from producers for anyone who could not produce their papers. As a result, 11 activists have been arrested for extortion, to the fury of 42-year-old Thackeray, after producers complained to police. It was a rare case of Bollywood standing up to the bully-boy tactics of the MNS. Whether producers can withstand the 'whites out' campaign will depend on the degree of support the MNS gets from local girls. One dancer, Rakhi Sawant, was quoted by the Telegraph as saying: "Because of these foreigners, our Indian girls remain jobless. These white girls are like lollipops that only last for two days." http://buzz.krify.com/11-5289.html British actresses who appear in Bollywood films are being targeted in acampaign by one of India's most feared political leaders. Stars including Alice Patten, the daughter of Lord Patten of Barnes, and Hazel Crowney, a former model from Kent, have been accused of stealing jobs from local girls. Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), a Mumbai nationalist street gang and political party which inspires terror throughout the city, has called on foreign white actresses to go home. His campaign for a ban on the estimated 1,000 British and other foreign actors who regularly appear in Bollywood films has been widely criticised but many foreign actors are too afraid to speak out. Thackeray is especially feared in Bollywood, where he has the power to shut productions and close cinemas. The campaign for a ban comes as increasing numbers of European and South American actresses are finding roles in Bollywood movies. This international approach could now be threatened because producers and directors fear Raj Thackeray will ruin their films if they do not comply. The campaign to ban foreign actors was launched last week after the MNS raided a the set of Crooked, starring Amitabh Bachchan, India's most famous star, and demanded to see the work permits of 136 foreign actors and actresses. The MNS holds seats in the Mumbai region but its strength comes from its activists who are regarded by many as violent street thugs. Its supporters have launched violent attacks on rickshaw drivers from other parts of India and threatened organisations which retain the name 'Bombay' instead of 'Mumbai.' http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/bollywood/7465541/White-British-actresses-told-to-leaveBollywood.html Stars including Alice Patten, the daughter of Lord Patten of Barnes, and Hazel Crowney, a former model from Kent, have been stealing jobs from local girls.

In the last few years, Kylie Minogue and Denise Richards have appeared in major Indian films. Miss Patten starred in Rang De Basanti, one of the most popular Bollywood films of recent years, while Minogue appeared in a raunchy song and dance scene called Chiggy Wiggy in the film Blue with action hero Akshay Kumar. It has also become increasingly common for Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone and Superman star

Brandon Routh to take cameo roles in Bollywood productions to boost their appeal. This international approach could now be threatened because producers and directors fear Raj Thackeray will ruin their films if they do not comply. The campaign to ban foreign actors was launched last week after the MNS raided a the set of Crooked, starring Amitabh Bachchan, India's most famous star, and demanded to see the work permits of 136 foreign actors and actresses.

Its supporters have launched violent attacks on rickshaw drivers from other parts of India and threatened organisations which retain the name 'Bombay' instead of 'Mumbai.' Shalini Thackeray, an MNS leader, said: "Why can't our Indian actors dance with locals? We will insist that only local junior artists should be employed. "We will check whether they have valid permits. Many times, foreigners come here on tourist visas, but take up work in Bollywood." She was supported by one of Bollywood's top dancers, Rakhi Sawant, who said: "Because of these foreigners, our Indian girls remain jobless. These white girls are like lollipops that only last for two days." Vir Singhvi, one of India's leading commentators, said the party was using the issue to win over Mumbai's women voters who have so far shunned the MNS. "The MNS says [these dance scenes] are against Indian traditions, vulgar and cheap. They do this to get women's votes because women object to half-naked dancers, but it's not enough of an issue for women to change their minds," he said. Leading Indian film director Jag Mundra last night criticised the campaign and said it could push up costs and force film-makers to shoot more scenes overseas. To save money, directors usually hire attractive backpackers passing through Mumbai and shoot dance scenes in local clubs or film sets. "The reason producers pick white girls is because a lot of them have better figures and are willing to expose them," he said.

Titillation has been an important part of Bollywood." http://www.indyf.com/jtest/entertainment/43-bollywood-news/99-raj-thackeray-calls-for-banonforeignactresses Raj Thackerays Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has called for a ban on foreign actresses who come to bollywood to try their fortune. He has targeted actresses from Britain and other countries who regularly make a beeline for the Hindi film industry and compete for item numbers and bit roles with desigirls. The reason for their growing popularity is that foreign artists are less inhibited about showing skin and therefore have an edge over Indian girls for bold item numbers, which have become the norm for most commercial films. Some producers are also of the opinion that these foreign girls are more conscious of the way they maintain their bodies and are much fitter than their local counterparts. They also look great in bikinis, which most bollywood actresses and even newcomers avoid like the plague. There are also the trade and business dynamics that producers have to take into consideration. Many of them opt for shooting with international tourists visiting India for a short stint rather than shoot up the budget by filming in expensive overseas locations with these foreigners. In the last few months, there has been a flurry of white-skinned beauties from Kylie Minogue (who starred in the risqu Chiggy Wiggy number with action superstar Akshay Kumar to Denise Washington and Alice Patten (who made her presence felt in a strong role in Rang De Basanti). Not only women, even Hollywood men like Sylvester Stallone and Brandon Routh have been beckoned by bollywood. The ban foreign actors campaign was unofficially launched after a few MNS activists halted the shooting of the film Crooked-starring Amitabh Bachchan and demanded to check the work permits

of over hundred foreign artists. The self-proclaimed holy cows of society then decided to take matters in their own hands and asked for immediate fines from producers for every member who couldnt produce a valid work permit. This act resulted in around eleven MNS party men being arrested after a complaint filed by producers, which further infuriated Raj Thackeray. Many are of the opinion that this stunt was pulled off by MNS to woo women voters, who have so far been elusive to the strategies of the party. Items girls like Rakhi Sawant have also voiced their opinion against foreign artists and dancers in the past, saying that these women are responsible for snatching away the jobs of talented local artists. Whether MNS succeeds in its politically motivated agenda of banning overseas artists in the Hindi film industry with the support of local actors/dancers or whether the producers fight it out against the bully tactics of the party-the winner will always be the audience who will be treated to some super catchy performances, desi videshi notwithstanding. http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/_ylc=X3oDMTI3OGFoNzFlBF9TAzk3MTgyNzM0OARnc3RhdGUDMwRwb 3MDMwRzZWMDbndfYnV6egRzbGsDdGl0bGUEdGFyA2luLmJ1enoueWFob28uY29t/SIG=12t1sr dfd/**http %3A//in.buzz.yahoo.com/article/1%3Ayahoo_india_m199%3A01bcdd0bc2ad4421e7fe7e085555f638 The latest being, Deepika, who would be swinging to this groovy version of the epic song, had a problem with the skirt she was supposed to wear in the song. She said it made her uncomfortable to perform the moves designed for the song. Deepika brought this to director Rohan Sippy's notice, who instantly replaced her skirt with hot pants with tassels over it, designed by Anahita Adajania Shroff. Needless to say, Deepika felt more comfortable in her new outfit and even managed to have 50-60 big red ants crawling on her back as a sequence in a song. Sippy offered to give her a body double but Deepika was confident of managing on her own. Way to go, Deepika! It's a shame the movie is shit. it has kalki kechlin in it. FINALLY! http://in.movies.yahoo.com/news-detail/84414/Now-Egyptian-makes-acting-debut-in-Indian-film.html By India Abroad Monday Apr 5 8:20 AM New Delhi, April 5 (IANS) After Brazilian Giselle Monteiro and Mexican Barbara Mori, it's Egyptian Aida Elkashef's turn to make her debut in an Indian movie as an actress. Director Anand Gandhi says initially he didn't plan to cast her in 'Theseus' Ship'. 'I met Aida at the Berlin Film Festival where she had come to showcase one of her movies,' Gandhi told IANS on phone from Mumbai, where he is currently shooting the first leg of the movie, his first feature film. 'She is just 21 and the daughter of a respected filmmaker from Egypt. She has made a couple of short films and is also an amazing actor.' Gandhi, who earned acclaim for his short films, 'Right Here Right Now' (2003) and 'Continuum' (2006), says he had initially written Aida's part for an Indian actress but failed to find the right face for it. 'Her role wasn't planned at all. She had come to India after we met in Berlin and started helping us out in auditioning male actors so that we could cast one of them opposite the character of a female photographer,' he said. 'During the screen test, we saw how excellently she was performing the lines of the photographer. It was then that we decided to rewrite the part for an Egyptian girl rather than an Indian one,' he added. Gandhi, who used to earlier pen down small screen's biggest shows 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' and 'Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii', says he auditioned close to 35 Indian actresses for the role but couldn't settle for any. 'I can't name the actresses I auditioned, but there were around 30-35. It was frustrating because none of them fitted the bill. I feel there is a serious dearth of acting skills and craftsmanship here because sadly

the general perception among Indian actors is that if you hit the gym regularly, you can make a successful actor.' For 'Theseus' Ship', which is a multi-lingual film primarily in English with parts in Arabic, Hindi, Gujarati and Swedish, Gandhi has also cast Soham Shah, who made his debut with 'Baabarr' in 2009. 'I had not seen Soham's mainstream film when he auditioned for my film but with whatever I have shot with him, I can say he is a very different and amazing actor. He plays a stockbroker in my project,' he said. 'Theseus' Ship' weaves four tracks together. These include a story of an intuitive blind photographer, a monk's ethics put to test, an obsessive compulsive clockmaker with an ailing heart, and a young stockbroker who gets caught up in the stolen kidney racket. The narrative will travel to Cairo, Stockholm and Mumbai. After shooting the Indian part of the film, Gandhi will be moving to Sweden and plans to finish the shooting schedules by September-end. He plans a festival release for the film rather than a commercial one. http://marriagepartner.com/forum/showthread.php?t=340 best of luck to all these awesome desi girls and western guys, check this out! load of sweet stories.... Hello, I'm an Indian girl married to a white guy from the US. I completely agree with your statement - "From my experience, there seems to be a belief that, in spite of our TV shows, our media and movie reputation, us American men have a reputation for treating our wives very well". All i had seen while being in Mumbai that how men woo women; how they want everything to go fast, and in the process forget that a woman needs to be respected. I found that most of the Indian men do not respect a woman the way she wants him to. And this is where Americans and Europeans are in a win-win situation. And it was the same when i met Matt (my husband). He cared very much for me (he still does), he understands me very well, he is a nice person - this is what attracted me to him! And when i got to know him better and better my perceptions changed a lot. I used to read a lot of articles on "how divorce rates are rising in the US" - what i did for this is tried to study it, tried to know what exactly it implies. And i found out that a lot of Indian magazines highlight the statement every now and then - only because "divorce rates are rising in the US but in India the divorce rates are not rising" - so the conclusion they arrived at was - "YES! It's because of Arranged Marriages!" - while there is no survey, no proof, nothing to prove this statement - It's all tom-tommed by the media! Another reason was that - i always wanted to marry someone who is outside my culture, my race. we enjoy the cultural differences we have and rather than exploring religion in itself we explore the human origin side of it. Because religion is something that is made by humans! I am proud and happy to be with someone who is the most amazing, the most patient person on this earth. I love everything about India, but i love everything about America too. For us it's not India and America - it's actually two different nations which are on the opposite sides of the globe, and exploring this opposite side of the planet is a joy in itself, it's a very good feeling! Hey Bud, I am a White american guy who is in love with my Punabi girlfriend and I plan on marrying her when the time is right. Before we even got together, her family had disowned her due to her wanting to convert to Christianity. We have dealt with everything under the sun, from her family hating her and wanting to make her life a living hell, to the point of her safety being questioned. We can't expect her family to totally come around, all I can do is to continue to show her the love and respect she deserves so that she knows she is so much better off with me, rather than an arranged marriage that could have happened. I support you whole heartedly bro, and I am praying that you guys are able to stay strong, and deal with the hardships that you will continue to face. We don't have her family to turn to when she is having issues, so in return, my family has taken her in and totally support us. E-mail me if you have any questions and I will do the same if I may. hang in there! I'm praying for you.

Sincerely, Greg heya im a punjabi girl, and i've got a australian bf...for a few yrs now... i wanted to know how ur gfs parents took the new of you both? i wanna tell mine but i dont know how to Hi, I am a white guy who has been married to an Indian woman for 10 years. It has not been easy, but the fact that her "connection" to her family was weakend long ago has helped. Also, we live in racially diverse Southern California where we "blend in" easier. I have made it a point to encourage her friendships with other Indians, which has hopefully compensated some for the cultural difference she experiences. From your post, it seems like you can't live without her, and she can't live without her family...The first question you need to ask...where will you two live? The second question...how much do you (both) want your families to be a part of your lives? If her family is traditional and "strong", you will face resistance. She may become an outcast and be disowned by her family...so be prepared. On the other hand, through my wife's friendships with Indians living here, I have learned that many single Indian women think about marrying outside their culture, (but very few do). From my experience, there seems to be a belief that, in spite of our TV shows, our media and movie reputation, us American men have a reputation for treating our wives very well. I hope this helps Hi, I couldn't find similar subject so I decide to write it as I can't imagine life without the one Indian woman that I know and I love. There is the main basic problem of the Indian tradisional culture - I decided to marry her as I would like to accept an Indian tradition before I'll spend more official time with her but unfortunately I can't do that her because I'm white. I respect her tradion and I am not going to do anything that could make her relationship with parents getting worse because for me the most important is her happiness and I know that she won't be happy without family support. I would like to ask about any possibilities that could make our marriage possible - I don't need to marry her today because she is a woman that I waited whole my life and I can wait more as I know I can be happy only with her. Thank you for all your advices that could make any possibility, even those nearly impossible to do, that could help me to be with her forever. ok i have never heard of a indian family forcing the non-hindu boyfriend to convert!!! indian girl myself and living in the UK, seeing an indian women with a non-indian man is a thing of the norm to me i see it eveyday, i dont know what its like in other parts of the world but indian families in London definetly have more tolerence, not saying all do of course my parents still want me to marry inside my community and would never encourage me to look outside, but if it happens, its happens... i dont see these relationships being an issue anymore, yes theres cultural diffrence but surely the reason the two are together is because each have a genunine interest in each others culture, and language? dont most speak english now? indian girls come with family drama That last line is one of the most important written on this thread - this is something every non Muslim/Hindu/Seikh person has to remember down the line when things get tough. We all know what we are getting into and as long as the other is honest about their family and where you stand, then it's up to the individual whether or not they continue the relationship. I've 'been' with my partner for almost 10 years - I am 34 and we are entering the last 6 months before either she goes to her family to introduce me as the man she wants to marry or we go our separate ways. Easier said than done though... I know her mother, have spent time round there, she has cooked for me - but certain things from her

have made it clear that she doesn't want her daughter to marry me - who is 31. Her mother/father separated when she was young so her dad lives elsewhere and he has no idea of me. They are a Brahmin caste so whilst they are not strict followers of the Hindu religion, it's the other factor that is probably going to win - perception of other family members/community looking at them in the wrong way. Apparently colour/religion doesn't count as much as who I am and my career (ie being a sales manager is nothing compared to Doctor etc). Us two? Our souls are meant for each other but that doesn't count in the long run in this sort of situation. I've always told her that in a choice between me and her family, they have to win. I will not be the person responsible for tearing a family apart - my love for her is endless but not enough to hurt countless others because of it. At times I am frustrated/angry/regretful over the issues we have to face because of the cultural/religious/community barriers put in front of us but at the same time, is it really fair of me to do so when I can never understand from her/their point of view? Hello everyone out there who every is reading this Thread. Everybody has other than the Indian girls parents has expressed themselves - good, bad and ugly. This is my thought as I am writing from experience. Indian families are very tight. Indian families have gone thru lot of hardship growing up and protecting their children and giving the best for their children sacrificing their own needs, wants of basic things. My husband came to USA in the late 60's just support his family. He has nothing but his shirt on the back. He got his M.S. degree and got a good job. He came to India to marry his own kind and not to disappoint his mother and family. Once I got married to him in India to my husband, I supported him in everything to help out his family and my side of the family. We still are helping our families in a way after 35 years. In the mean time we had to rise two children of our own. We paid for our children's education - we are still trying to pay of their loan. This kind of scrafice you can only get from Indain families. Now our daughter is going out with a white guy. I think they'll get married next year. We have taught our children that there are good people and bad people in every culture, every relegion, every race, every country. And it is one's own comfort zone to choose their friends and life partner. Every body has to go thru the life journey for themselves - be it good or bad. As a parent we just think that our kind is the best kind be it Hindu, muslim, christian, jew, budhist or sikh. I think Hindu parents who resists inter racial marriage should know that Hinduism does preach to look at every human being as God. Bottom line as much as we like to have son-in-laws and daughter-in-laws from our own race and religion I don't want to strain parents and childrens relationship. If my daughter and son are happy marrying outside my hindu relegion (I'm a brahmin and my husbands side also) that is fine by me because at the end of the day I go to sleep knowing that I did the best mothering I can. Hope white guy's learn something from Indian families about the scrafices and patience. I know there is lot of drama that come with the Indian families, that is because of the hardship growing up in India in those times. Love Indian MOM I am in inter cultural relationship...my wife is Indian, we both believe our kids will be more superior human beings. as for you comments (what year are u from, who are you) do me a favour please walk into any American embassy and surrender urself as TALBIBAN. 1000 years from now, your culture, race, country, religion and idea will be on the same bin as Holocaust, the world is flat and all the nut cases. Bless u. I know its difficult to see ur kids going out and offcourse getting married to outsider or simply put going against UR WISHES. The bottom line is its better to gain a son or daughter than to loose one. Bless u. And please dont lesson to nut cases like DEEPBLUE comments.

i have married to Indian, and all my friends have married outside their caste religion and culture, its the most spiritual experience. in these kind of relationships one is always on their toes, i must learn and be sensitive, i must love her and her family, i need to make her happy (by default family), and the best part is its fantastic. Our kids will learn 6 languages (at least have access to), our kids will access to 4 different continents (4 countries-no boundaries-imagine), our kids will have the world as their background, our family will be most successful cause we can be here there and everywhere, my family will know the world is not flat and father Christmas PO box is not south or north pole but a capitalistic drama... so if u have any reservations always remember partners in these relationships have the highest respect for their parents. My respect for my in laws is of the highest, they love me and I can speak their language. I respect them because I know the courage they had to not care about society but their daughter. I can imagine 1000 years from now our conversation will be a curiosity. I see it in ourselves, my wife and myself are passionate about our culture and people, religion not that muchbut u know what I mean (and where all the hate and wars start--I REST MY CASE), our kids will look at these things and think why we thought the world is flat and the earth is the centre of the universe. I am sorry but we are in the future (inter cultural/religion/race marriages or couples). Stop trying to burn us as witches (dark ages in Europe) and start understanding us. hi am new here.am 21+ beautiful,nice,honest,hard working,down to earth girl from india. am searching a nice american or indian american guy for myself. y american? becoz i am fred up of indian culture am feeling like am in prison coz of this hell culture.. my parentz are really good they give me all thingz wish i want...but the way they treat me i dont like it......most of the indian girlz cant go out alone ,cant make good friendz even girlz...i told them i dont want anything i want freedom but no use of telling them ..telling them to give freedom is like barking...i really want to get out of this hell. please if any one can help me then plz do help me.. am really fred up....am so depresed coz of this......I WANT TO BREATH,LIVE FREELY AS THE WAY I WANT. NOT THE WAY MY PARENYTZ WANT.. INDIAN CULTURE IS REALLY BAD SPECIALY FOR GIRLS.... you sound like an interesting girl...i am from london and would like to meet an indian girl...it is very difficult though due to pressures from parents I am a 31 year old indian woman, born and raised in canada. I was raised in a very traditional home my parents were both very religious, had strict rules for their five daughters. What I find interesting about this thread is rampant bigotry from the indian male perspective. I am an educated professional female. My parents did not pay for my education, I did, I worked and earned scholarships. They actually only paid for my youngest sister's education. My parents covered the basic necessities of growing up but emotionally how could they possibly understand what my generation was going through being raised in the 80s and 90s in an environment to which they had never been exposed. Our parents didn't go through peer pressure or having the people around us not understand why we had to be home right at 3pm why we couldn't even have a friend over unless they were indian. In the end this causes children to rebel, the indian parents mantra is do as I say not as I do which doesn't work well when I'm being raised in culture of respect and reason. Earlier in this thread an indian man mentioned you couldn't see indian women naked easily for $5, which I found incredibly offensive as India has a thriving underage sex trade market where families from villages SELL children they cannot afford to keep to the sex trade. How is this even considered more respectful than the north american culture? My two older sisters had arranged marriages one is already divorced, thanks mom and dad for keeping her happiness and needs in mind. The second one is in abusive relationship both mental and physical. She stays because she is "brave", interesting right. The indian culture lauds women for being victims. This not just an opinion but an observation based on years of empirical data. I am 31, I am getting married in a year to wonderful Canadian man. He respects my intelligence, my needs and my ambition. In return I do the same for him. It's an equal partnership.

My parents, both of them, LOVE HIM! They love him more than the sons-in-laws that they chose, he did not have to convert. He did not have to face any drama as I had already gone through the drama when I asserted my independence. Yes it's hard, but seriously people, this is your life, your choice how you want to approach it. My parents respect me now the most out of all their children. That's something both of them have said to me. I was the one who asked why, when they didn't have answers, I asked why not? When they couldn't answer those I went my way. Yes parents deserve respect. I treat my parents with respect but that doesn't mean that I subjugate myself to their needs alone. They didn't do that for their parents. They went their own ways after marriage. I know this because my mother and father and I have talked about it. For an indian family to evolve taboo subjects need to be brought up, they need to be dissected. Yes I was beaten as a teenager too but there comes a time when you have to say enough, stand your ground and leave. They may not talk to you for awhile they may consider you dead but after a few years which isn't much in the grand scheme of things they want to be a part of your life. They may have given you life but they don't own it. We are all equal. The Guru Garanth even says that. Actually it says the women are above men because we have the ability to give life whereas men don't. Men who subjugate women are fearful. People who cannot be their own person and use logic, reason and love to discuss difficult topics deserve to be martyrs and victims. All it takes is a little bit of courage. It's not disrespectful to anyone to be who you are as they are the ones that shaped you. It's disrespectful to hide who you are. So to all you men who consider indian women who marry outside the culture as abhorrent remember to talk to your mother, ask her how happy she was and whether she would live her life differently. I know that both my parents would do things differently. All, I am an American man and have been dating an Indian woman for a little over a year and a half now. We have known each other for a long time and I'm running in to a bit of a struggle since she has not told her parents about us yet. We have agreed that she will tell them soon but I am concerned that they will be upset for being kept out of the loop for so long. What is awkward is that I have spent time with them and helped them out around the house, taken them out to dinners and concerts etc. My feeling is that they already know but are just waiting for their daughter to formally tell them. How do I support her the best in this situation? I try to ask her how she think they will react and what I can do to help and mitigate any concerns her parents may have but she has a hard time explaining this to me. Maybe she just needs some time to figure this out for herself but I want to be a part of that process? WHat is making this even more awkward is that they have been trying to set her up with Indian men and frankly it makes me feel pretty sad but it's a situation that is really out of my control. She and I are very much in love and have already crossed many of the usual hurdles couples of different races go through. We are both supportive about each others faith and are very much on the same page about how we want to raise children. I'd really appreciate some feedback from some of the Indians on this website as to what I can do to help her. Hey Greg, was great to read ure story. It is very exciting.. I am amazed to see the extent men can go for their girlfriends.... I do not have any luck with men.... I hardly ever end up impressing them.... leave alone dating them... Well to b a racist clears up a lot of things sometimes....... I am an indian girl... i feel i can impress and date an Indian Guy but never an american guy... I am never able to make an American guy fall for me!!. I liked so many American Guys ... Starbucks guy, dance teacher, so many... i could never ever get a guy to ask me out for a date.... Mayb its bad luck OR i am a boring Software engineer!!!!

How do you break ice with American Guys.. wat will make them like in an Indian Girl ? i mean i give up until you can tell me !!! plzz reply I am writing to ask if anyone who is involved in an inter-racial relationship (possibly an Indian woman with a white male) would take part in my final year project? It is basically based on experiences which occur due to being in a mixed background relationship. It will just involve you answering questions in depth and being able to share your experiences with me. I am not biased in any way as I am interested in this topic as I myself am an Indian woman and currently in a 7-year relationship with a white male. I would very much appreciate your time as I am struggling to find participants! Thank you. I am an Indian woman with white boyfriend. We live in the US and are perfectly happy together. I know that my parents would not approve of this relationship. They, like most Indian families, want me to get an arranged marriage. However, i have made my decision to be with the man that I love and am happy with. Not all Indian men are bad. Many people in my extended family have had successful arranged marriages . I think it depends on the person. I also dated an Indian guy a couple of years ago and it didn't work out, not because he was Indian but because we were not compatible. Then I met my current boyfriend and things have been going very well between us. Again, this is not because he is white but because we are compatible. Anyway, without going into too much into my life. this is what I would say It really depends on what the two people involved in a relationship want. For some women, the social pressure is more important and they would conform to the existing social norms no matter what you do. Others, who are non-conformists will not go by the race, wealth of a man and would make their decision based on other things. I personally think that the society has decided what is right for you and if you don't do it, they will criticize you but will forget about it 10 years down the line and you will still be bearing the consequences. So, do what you think would make you happy. Hi all, I read your posts about your relationships so I thought I would share a little bit of mine and ask you some specific questions. I'm 26yrs old and I'm Indian (came here at 16yrs old w/parents) who has lived in CA for the last 10years. At 19 yrs old I left home because my parents were abusive and suffered from alcoholism. The whole alcoholism thing got worse after we came to the US and I was extremely depressed so my friends helped me leave my house and since then I have been disowned by my parents (although now, we do talk occasionally); I have not been back home since then. I struggled a lot but still managed to keep myself in school and that's where I met my fiance Anthony...that was in June 2006. Anthony and I have lived together since Aug 2007 and his family is extremely supportive of our relationship. They've been my foundation and they're my only family now, along with my two brothers who also have left home recently. Anthony and I are about to get married in October and of course none of my family is going to be there which makes me sad at times so I was wondering if you guys have some words of wisdom for me that will help me get over the fact that my family won't be there. Even though we're not having an extravagant wedding, I wanted to wear an Indian outfit but I was wondering if that would look awkward with only me dressed up in Indian clothes and the others are in western clothing. Anthony has been asking me if I want him to wear an Indian Sheerwani instead of a suit and I liked that idea because we're having an American wedding so I won't feel so left out if he was to look Indian as well Anyway, its not the end of the world but I was wondering what you guys think. I am trying to at least get my brothers to be present for my wedding but we'll see how all that goes. And it sucks to say this but a part of me is glad that my parents won't be there because I feel like they would be such an embarrassment and a reminder of all the terrible years of childhood even though a part of me wishes things were different and that I did have the perfect relationship with my family. Although I did tell my parents that I am getting married and that I'm getting married to a white guy (they saw his picture that I sent them)

but they did not jump up and down with joy or anything in response and neither did they yell at me and say I'm useless and that I've ended up useless like they always liked to say. Either way, it's been years since I left so there is a detachment that seems to get greater by the years on both ends. Should I just cut contact with them entirely? I completely agree with you. I myself ( being sikh) have been disowned by my parents when I married my canadian bf. We've been married 4 years now and we have a 2 year old daughter. They have never met my hubby and will probably never want to meet my daughter. That being said, our marriage is stronger than ever and our daughter has everything she needs. It can be difficult when your family members turn their backs on you but it also shows how much you mean to them. I think it's their loss to not have met their first grandchild. I also think love is above all. I can only hope I am a better parent to my child than my parents were to me. G-Sidhu, I am a Sikh female who recently informed her parents. I have been dealing with phone calls begging me to come home and end the relationship.The difficult is my sibilings who i thought would be somewhat supportive are advising me to come home and this is a mistake. How did you deal with this? Helo, I am a white english guy, and I am madly in love with a Punjabi woman. We have been together for over three years, and in this time I have learnt that we are simply perfect for each other. We have always been open with each other about what would happen if we told her father, and how this may prevent us from ever being a family. The pressure got to her in the end and the past 2 weeks hav been a futile effort to see a way around the Indian cultural point of view, ending with us breaking up to keep her family together. The fact is that i would never ask or want her to give up her family for me, i want her to be happy, and without the support of her family she would not be happy. The most annoying thing about this situation is that i no she feels the same about me as i do her, and that there is no way for us to have a relationship unless it is in secret (and i have seen how hard she finds this, so i can no longer ask her to do this) Basically I didn't think it was possible to connect with another person in the way i have with her, and the fact i have to let this go due to an unjustified cultural perception of what is the right thing to do is driving me mental!. I no there is no solution to this problem, for any of us in this situation. The only thing we can do is at every opportunity we are given in life to change or influence this cultural belief we should take it. For those who do go all the way and tell the family, encourage those you know in similar situations to do the same, and support each other. The only fix to this is a long one - give this freedom to your children, and let them love the people they meet. The only sustainable culture, is a culture that changes, so do anything you can to change what you feel is wrong, otherwise this issue will continue to destroy love between people who love so intensely. I have a romantic view on life and believe that life is beautiful, and the relationships we make with people are what life is about, I also believe that love is a beautiful emotion, and truly believe you can't choose who you fall in love with, thats what makes it so ****ing beautiful. yes this is cheese but dont let my lack of articulated sentences draw you from the emotion i've put into this message, and how real these emotions are for every single person on the face of this planet! thanku 4 reading this. Bardot's book was also against "the mixing of genes"; made attacks on modern art, which Bardot equated with "shit"; drew similarities between French politicians and weather vanes; and compared her own beliefs with previous generations who had "given their lives to push out invaders. She is, however, not fond of muslims. she loses a few points for this, but gains many for the fact that she is against race mixing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigitte_Bardot#Politics_and_legal_issues http://erinightwind.deviantart.com/ this girl is another western convert to islam and is married to another western guy. im glad to see more

of this. i wish fellow sikhs, other girls who convert to islam, and those who convert to other faiths like hinduism, bhuddism, etc would follow suit, and that they'd also not stray into cults. http://picasaweb.google.com/carolnoble52 whilst i'll clearly admit that desi fashions make her look more like a tourist and do not suit her at all, mrs. carol noble is a very good gori. she's married to another gora (his name is robert and he's from England!), but has adopted 2 indian boys. http://www.iccorp.com/winter_2007.htm http://www.iccorp.com/images/Carol_Noble.jpg Introducing Carol Noble Carol Noble has worked as an editor for nearly 30 years for a diverse client list that includes publishing stalwarts such as Prentice Hall, Addison-Wesley, and Harvard University Press as well as advertising giants Digitas and Arnold. During that time she has also taught copyediting and proofreading at Northeastern University and hired, trained, and managed an in-house professional staff of editors and proofreaders for a Boston-area production company. All of this experience will come into play as Ms. Noble mentors Macmillan's editors not only in the fine points of English grammar but in the subtleties of American usage and idiom. She will also be implementing metrics and organizing editing staff into tiered teams so that new hires will benefit from the supervision and experience of older hands. She is excited about her new assignment and sums up her challenge by saying: "My aim is to make the copyeditor invisible to the client - that is, our clients should not be able to tell where their text was edited, here or stateside." Ms. Noble is a native of the Boston, Massachusetts area, with a family history that stretches back to the Mayflower. Her immediate family, however, are more recent arrivals: her husband, Robert, was born and raised in England, and her children, Kali Jaba and John Henry, were adopted from Kolkatta as infants. All four appreciate the irony in the fact that, when her family visits this spring, it will be American-born Mom who will be showing her NRI* kids around India! Ms. Noble has a bachelor's degree in literature from the University of New Hampshire and a master's degree in writing from Stanford University. We wish Ms. Noble all the very best and an enjoyable stint with Macmillan. http://www.boston.com/travel/getaways/asia/gallery/around_delhi_india?pg=8 and we too also wish Mrs. Noble the best, despite our recoomendations that she stick to western fashion.....she is doing a wonderful job of keeping her culture intact yet is helping our people thrive. Now, make sure you encourage your adopted boys to find desi wives and to help them thrive as well! rock on carol ji! I will say that not all white people are bad. And not all white people who are interested in other cultures are bad...in fact, just the opposite. BUT the line is drawn when they go from simply respecting that culture, to trying to marry into the culture, and emulate the culture too far. A respect for other cultures, and understand other cultures is always welcomed and encouraged, but often people try to manipulate and take advantage of this as a way to exploit others for their own ill gains. Matter of fact, some of the 3 H O links are courtesy of a Gori Sikh woman who is an amazingly wonderful Sikh and a wonderful person. Her blog is here http://www.kamallarosekaur.wordpress.com . She is a former 3 H O member, still Sikh but not 3 H O. She is happily married to another westerner, and now works to get the word out about how false 3 H O are. If more Goris were like her, we could truly smile and say 'Gori' with a good feeling in our hearts. She embodies the values that western Sikhs should have.......of course we don't expect and often prefer westerners don't try to over involve themselves with things other than western culture, because then they exploit it, but having a respectful knowledge of India, and helping Indians (and others) keep their culture and stick to their culture is one thing that sets apart the true western Sikhs from the false. This woman is one of those rare Gori Sikhs who do have respect for Sikhism, and for Desi people. Others should look to this woman as a role model when they become Sikh in the west. She has made her

mistakes, but has learnt from them, and she is helping others see reality. Rock on, Kamalla Rose! Lastly, We have some exciting news to share with you! We have our own petition which aims too restore morals to our culture by banning western women from marrying or romancing wstern men, and to ban promotion of their practice in media and on the internet. Please sign it and get the word spread! http://www.petitiononline.com/tkboci/petition.html * please note that the address used is NOT our main contact adress, and any mail sent to the address will NOT be answered. Thank you. 'To: Worldwide Politicians This petition seeks to establish a successful worldwide ban on western women marrying and/or having romantic relations with eastern men (Men of the Indian subcontinent and countries,islands, possessions, etc. there of, Arab/Middle eastern men, and Asian men), not based on their skin colour or background, but rather for the natural behaviours that both they and the Eastern cultured men who are attracted to them possess, and because by their acts, they help Eastern men further erode the morals of their culture, and cause the further decline of respect towards women of their own cultures. They help these men fill dangerous and inappropriate fantasies, as well as seeking money, attention, and sex for them self, despite what tricks they attempt. Also crucial - a ban on these western women who enter the country with an eastern husband or boyfriend, and the banning of them finding one while here, and marrying one, which would include a ban on 'masala weddings' involving a western woman and eastern man, rendering all current and future marriages as invalid and annulled. Lastly, and also crucial would be a ban on all media (movies, Telly/TV, books, music, etc.) , including internet related media (social networks, websites, etc.) that promote western women romantically involved with eastern men. Those who would be exempt from the ban would be the following: Western men who wish to have relationships with eastern women, gay and lesbians (of any race), and western women who wish to marry a western man (of any race - be it black, white, or latino) in the cultural tradition of an eastern culture country, because although some of us may not feel comfortable with it, they are not doing anything immoral by this. Please send this to as many people as you can, and have them do the same so that we can fight the immorality! ' Thanks to our supporters, you folks don't realize the amount of good you are doing! this was so well put! 'the white people in america and other countries should stick to being true in the religions they were born into. I am a Singh in London, and it makes me sick when i see gora Sikh wanabes they do shame to the real Sikh panth with their frantics and theatrics. u are not the sons and daughters of matyrs like the real Sikhs are. Sikhi is not in your blood like the sons and daughters of Punjab. That does not go for saying that Sikhs do not do shame to their own religion but....Like a great man Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa said: Sikh should be a true Sikh, Hindhu true Hindhu, and Muslim true to Islam etc. ' http://www.factnet.org/discus/messages/3/66.html i will say that its ok for a person to follow whatever faith they feel best suited to, however, many people, and especially most who convert to eastern religions do it not because they truly believe in what they are following, and worse yet, often don't research properly the differences between cults and the actual religion, nor do they consider how to properly respect their own culture AND that of the culture/religion they are considering or trying to follow. This is very important. baba ramdev dislikes western culture, and is very patriotic to the morals of our india. he rocks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Ram_Sena normally i don't write about (or support) right wing groups, but these folks seem to be doing good. they held protests against the wetsernization on valentine's day that I had mentioned earlier. www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzYnJu18VG0 www.indianexpress.com/news/valentine-and-culture/423561//

i may not agree with baba ji on soda, or gay people but i sure do agree about western cultre! im also not a real yoga nut, but i don't mind from time to time a little relaxing....what really gets me about baba ramdev is not his religon or yoga or that stuff...it's his morals. he devoted his life to his faith...he doesn't have sex, he doesn't do shameful stuff, and he has very old fashioned morals. that makes him very cool. i don't care what religion he practices, his morals rock. he suffers from bells palsy which paralyzed the left side of his face, which is why he has face hair.It makes him very handsome, and he's an amazing man to deal with his challenges so well! http://ethnicelebs.com/karrueche-kae-tran She is of Vietnamese and African American descent.

"I was her secret 'booty call' available any time of the day or night for secret sex sessions."[4] She also had a sexual relationship with Angelina Jolie, as Jolie has confirmed.

"I would probably have married Jenny if I hadn't married my [first] husband (Jonny Lee Miller)."[5] Shimizu also dated Ione Skye in 1999 the good thing is that this movie is about a desi girl with a western guy. however, gorihod naveen andrews and offspring of gori chods indira varma are in it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Ling Ling's father Doug is a Chinese immigrant, born in the 1920s; her mother Mary Mei-yan (born Wang) hails from Tainan, Taiwan, and formerly served as the head of the Los Angeles office of the Formosan Association for Public Affairs.[1][8] They divorced when Laura Ling was 4 years old and her sister Lisa was 7.[9][10] Following the divorce, the two sisters were raised in the city of Sacramento, California by their father. Ling describes herself as Chinese American, but a friend described her as "a true Valley girl ... about as Chinese as the cuisine at Chin Chin".[1] She studied at Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, California; an English teacher there, who taught both Ling and her sister, claimed that when he first knew Ling, she was already interested in following her sister's footsteps into the journalism field; he described her as "different from her sister ... and more determined, in a sense".[1] She went on to graduate with a communications degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1998.[11] On June 3, 2010, Ling gave birth to a girl, naming her Li Jefferson Clayton, in Burbank, California.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euna_Lee Euna Lee is a South Korean-born American journalist who has worked for Current TV since 2005.[2] Lee and fellow journalist Laura Ling were detained in North Korea after they crossed into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea from the People's Republic of China without a visa. The United States Government protested the sentences, and implemented diplomatic efforts in order to secure the release of both Lee and Ling.[3] On 4 August 2009 Lee and Ling were pardoned by the North Korean government after a special humanitarian visit by former US President Bill Clinton. Lee was born and raised in South Korea, and moved to the United States in order to attend Academy of Art University, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Film and Broadcasting. She currently attends the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.[4] She is married to actor Michael Saldate; they have a daughter, Hana.[5] On 4 August 2009, former US President Bill Clinton visited North Korea in an attempt to free Lee and fellow journalist Laura Ling. The North Korean government pardoned both Lee and Ling after meeting

with Clinton that day.[6][7] Human rights activists in South Korea accuse Lee and Ling of placing North Korean refugees in danger through their actions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somaly_Mam

Somaly Mam does not have any birth records showing when she was born or who her parents were, though she was born to a tribal minority family in the Mondulkiri province of Cambodia. In her memoir, The Road of Lost Innocence, she states that she was born in either 1970 or 1971.[1]:2 In the mid-1970s, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge terrorized Cambodia and drove thousands of people into the country side. Essentially orphaned, Mam lived in a small Phnong village until a man picked her up and promised to find her father.[1] She became his indentured servant or slave. Mam was instructed to call him "grandfather" because it's a sign of respect to the elderly.[1]:7 Mam was abused by her "grandfather" until she was approximately 14, when she was sold to a brothel and forced into prostitution. She was also forced to marry a stranger.[2] Her husband was a fighter in the Khmer Rouge, who beat and raped her.[1]:34 She was forced to prostitute herself on the streets and made to have sex with five or six clients per day.[3] When Mam wouldn't have sex with a client, she would be locked up, tortured, raped, and threatened with death; she claims she was forced to watch her best friend being viciously murdered.[1]:42-45[4] Fearing she would meet that same fate, Somaly escaped her captors and set about building a new life for herself. In 1993, an aid worker from France found Mam and helped her escape Cambodia.[5] She moved to Paris and eventually married a French citizen, but returned to Cambodia to help women caught in similar situations she experienced. http://www.cleveland.com/mycleveland/index.ssf/2008/11/author_peace_activist_loung_un.html Honk if you see a cute couple pedaling a bicycle built for two.

By Sarika Malhotra Bhim Singh, 29, and his younger brother Ashu are building their dream home in their village, Indrawa Abeidullah, in Bihar's Gopalganj district. The four-storied house has a four-room set on each floor and will cost Rs 60 lakh. That is a far cry from just a few years ago when they lived in a kutcha mud house and their father ran a grocery shop which barely made Rs 4,000 a month to support his family of 10. How did this transformation occur? It all began in 2006 when Bhim Singh, following in the footsteps of several village youth, decided to get a job overseas. "Yahaan pe kuch kamaai nahin ho rahee thee (I was hardly earning anything here)," says Singh, who has five sisters. He found a job as a pipe fitter with Consolidated Contracting International Co in Doha, Qatar. He borrowed from friends and a local moneylender to meet expenses of about Rs 62,000 on travel agents,

visa and other travel-related needs. "I returned it in just two months," he says. His initial salary was Rs 35,000. He also opened a snack counter and earned Rs 10,000 more. Since the company bore his food, clothing and lodging expenses, he saved almost his entire income and sent it home. Next, in 2009, Ashu went to Saudi Arabia to work for National Construction Co and started sending home another Rs 32,000 every month. Today, all siblings are married. "Each sister's marriage costs us at least Rs 5 lakh. The money we earned overseas made it possible," says the elder sibling. The Singhs are not the only ones building a new home in their village. Construction activity can be seen in every lane. An estimated 80 per cent of the local economy in Gopalganj and the neighbouring Siwan district depends on remittances from overseas workers. Bihar, in fact, has emerged as the new hotspot for emigrants, especially those bound for West Asia. According to the latest data from the Ministry of Overseas Affairs, the number of emigrants from Bihar surged from 36,493 in 2006 to 71,438 in 2011. Uttar Pradesh saw a bigger jump, from 66,131 in 2006 to 1,55,301 in 2011. Unlike Bihar, migration from Uttar Pradesh is not limited to a handful of districts. Kerala and Tamil Nadu, traditionally the top states for emigration, are now sending fewer people overseas. Continued on next page... In all, about five million Indians are working overseas. In 2011, 626,565 workers emigrated from India, 90 per cent of them going to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar. There has been a steady increase in remittances as well, from $25 billion in 2005/06 to $55.9 billion in 2010/11, according to Reserve Bank of India data (see Steady Growth). The World Bank estimates India likely received $70 billion from overseas in 2012, up from $63 billion the year before. State-wise data is difficult to get. Kerala is the only state which periodically maps the trend. A survey by the Thiruvananthapuram-based Centre for Development Studies shows the state got Rs 49,965 crore ($9.11 billion) in remittances in 2011. Malappuram district topped the list, receiving Rs 9,040 crore, or more than a sixth of the total. The Bihar government does not have district-wise data on emigrants, but travel agents estimate that Gopalganj and Siwan account for 70 per cent of the state's total. The rush to go overseas can be gauged from the fact that the Siwan police verified 198,000 passports from 2007 to 2012 and Gopalganj police verified 153,000. Sushil Kumar Modi, Bihar's Deputy Chief Minister, acknowledges the phenomenon. "Every time I board a Delhi-to-Patna morning flight, I meet at least 10-12 people from Gopalganj and Siwan coming from overseas," he says. Funds from overseas are changing the sociocultural landscape. Until a few years ago Muslims accounted for nearly 80 per cent of the total emigrants and Hindus the rest. Today, Hindus account for 40 per cent. Among Muslims, change is evident in the kind of education sought. Boys study in English-medium schools and go to cities for professional courses. Take, for instance, Mohammad Habibullah from Bindusar village in Siwan district. He never completed schooling but went to Qatar in 1979 as a driver. His son Shahid has a management degree from Amity University, Noida.

Indrawa Bairam village, part of the panchayat that covers Indrawa Abeidullah and four other villages, has 40 boys pursuing engineering courses in Karnataka, Maharashtra and Delhi. Sarpanch Sher Alam says this was unimaginable 10 years ago. He adds the panchayat has 6,400 voters including 3,300 men. Of these, at least 1,700 are working overseas. Girls, however, still get an Islamic education. Village elders are hopeful things will improve for women, too. "We want them educated. With all-round development mindsets will change," says Mohammed Ali Imam Rayeen, a community leader and businessman in Mirganj. Most emigrants have limited formal training and learn on the job. This has prompted some locals to set up training centres for teaching job skills such as masonry and carpentry to aspiring emigrants. There are at least 50 training institutes, such as Al Saifi and Arbab Institute, in Gopalganj and Siwan districts. They charge between Rs 2,000 and Rs 5,000 from the aspirants. These centres also work as placement agencies where officials from various companies, who may be Indians or foreigners, interview locals seeking jobs. "This trend began about five years ago. Every month three to four interviews are held," says M. Haque, who runs Hamidia World Travels, a travel agency in Siwan. These centres network with Gulf-based companies either directly or through agents based in Delhi and Mumbai. They announce the dates of interviews and tests in local markets using loudspeakers. They distribute leaflets that specify the names of companies coming for interviews, number of positions on offer under different categories, and the likely salaries. One such leaflet mentions the salary of masons and carpenters as 1,300 to 1,400 Saudi Arabian Riyals (Rs 19,000 to Rs 20,500). The craze for working overseas is such that even children in the two districts know the riyal-rupee exchange rate. Deputy Chief Minister Modi admits there is need for training. He says the state will soon start a programme to provide 15 to 20 days training in various job skills. The increase in remittances has also led to a mushrooming of money transfer agencies. Western Union, the global money transfer company, has 200 outlets in Gopalganj. Kiran Shetty, Managing Director, Western Union Services India, says Bihar has emerged as a strong remittance market. "The number of our outlets in Bihar has jumped from 2,200 in 2010 to 5,500 in 2012," he says. Ashraf Ali, an agent at the company's Bathua Bazar outlet in Gopalganj, says his office handles transactions worth Rs 2 lakh daily. He estimates that the total money transfer business would be Rs 150 crore a month in Gopalganj and Rs 200 crore in Siwan. UAE Exchange, the principal agent for Xpress Money and Western Union, increased the number of its outlets in Bihar from three in 2010 to nine in 2012. "For us the remittance flow to Kerala is growing at less than five per cent and Tamil Nadu by three per cent," says Promoth Manghat, Vice President, Global Operations, UAE Exchange. "Growth in Bihar was 19 per cent in 2012." Thomas Cook opened its money transfer and foreign exchange branch in Siwan six months ago. "On average, Rs 2 crore worth of foreign currency is encashed per month at our branch," says the branch head Ashish Kumar. Banks are tapping into this opportunity, too. Raj Kishore Prasad, Senior Vice President, International Retail, Axis Bank, says his bank has tie-ups with Xpress Money, MoneyGram and EzRemit for money transfer. But emigration has also had other side effects. Some elders worry that young people are neglecting education and instead opting for jobs overseas by paying placement agencies. Locals also complain

about the shortage of agricultural labour. "We have about 90 acres of land but very few labourers to work on it," says Laxmi Narayan Singh of Line Bazar village in Gopalganj. Singh's brothers run a construction business in Dubai. "Buying more land is not a wise decision anymore. Who will till it?" Still, the outflow of workers and the inflow of money are transforming the region. Shops of various brands have sprung up. Women are splurging on cosmetics. Farmers are buying tractors and other farm equipment. Sales of television sets and other consumer durables are rising as well. Just about every house in the two districts has a story to tell. Ali Imam remembers a poor woman whom he used to give one or two-rupee coins occasionally as charity. "She came to my shop after having been absent for some six months and I took out a coin for her," he says. "She looked me in the eye for the first time and said, 'Babu ab ye nahin chahiye, mere do bete Arab ko gaye (I do not need this now, my two sons have gone to the Gulf)."

www.contactmusic.com/news/jenna-ushkowitz-has-boyfriend-to-thank-for-lady-gaga-videospot_1329941 Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz has her actor boyfriend Michael Trevino to thank for helping her land a guest spot in Lady Gaga's recent music video. The 26 year old, who plays Tina Cohen-Chang on the hit U.S. TV series Glee, was hanging out with her partner Trevino on the set of his TV show Vampire Diaries when she bumped into the Bad Romance hitmaker, who was visiting her then-boyfriend actor Taylor Kinney. The two couples went out on a double date in Atlanta, Georgia - and Trevino suggested Gaga should use his girl in a music video.

Opening up about her friendship with the pop star during an appearance on U.S. TV chat show host Wendy Williams' daytime programme on Thursday (17May12), Ushkowitz said, "She comes over to Michael's apartment, she had her hair down. She had like a nice weave in. And she used my comb too! And I'm like, 'I'm never using this again!' She is awesome. She is super cool. We ended up hanging out. We went to a (Atlanta) Braves (baseball) game together." And Gaga certainly took a liking to Ushkowitz - she later invited the actress to appear in her Marry the Night video, as her best pal Bo.

The actress continues, "Two weeks later, she got in touch with my agent. She was like, 'Can you do me this favour and can you come (and) be in my music video?' I was like, 'I think so.' Unfortunately Ushkowitz and Gaga won't be double dating again any time soon - although the actress is still romancing Trevino, her boyfriend of a year, the pop star ended her 10-month romance with Kinney last month (Apr12).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Muhammad_Knight Knight's father, Wesley Unger, was the thirteenth of twenty children born to a Pentecostal preacher in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. A participant in outlaw motorcycle club culture, Unger was mentally ill and abusive, causing Knight's mother to escape with him when Knight was two years old. Knight grew up in Geneva, New York, raised by his mother in a Roman Catholic family of Irish descent. Knight's first exposure to Islam came when he was 13 when he discovered Malcolm X through the lyrics of the hip-hop band, Public Enemy. After reading Alex Haley's Autobiography of Malcolm X at 15, Knight's study of Islam intensified and he converted to Islam. It was also at 15 that Knight met his father for the first time since he was two years old; when Knight informed Unger that he was Muslim, Unger told Knight that he was a white supremacist. At 17 Knight traveled to Islamabad, Pakistan, to study Islam at Faisal Mosque. He came close to making the decision to abandon this course of study to join the war against Russian rule in Chechnya.[7] On August 2, 2009, he married Sadaf Khatri in San Jose, California http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Rehm Personal life

http://www.guyanatimesinternational.com/?p=27001 http://www.guyanatimesinternational.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Nisa-and-her-family.jpg U.S.-trained Guyanese chef talks about her love for cooking June 14, 2013 By admin Formally trained in the culinary arts in the U.S. and having to put aside her passion for cooking for a while because of family responsibilities, Guyanese culinary expert Nisa Walker has returned to a burning stove to create delectable dishes and bring contented smiles to those who indulge regularly at her caf called Oasis Cafe, nestled along Carmichael Street in the city. Nisa and her family Nisa and her family Nisa left Guyana when she was 19 for Europe where she spent about five years. She then migrated to the U.S. and resided there for about nine years, where she married her British husband. I went to culinary school in the U.S. about 22 years ago but didnt work because I spent the first few years taking care of my family, the mother of two disclosed. But when the children got older I got restless. My passion is cooking and creating dishes that will make people happy. I had my own catering business in New York. It wasnt very advertised, only through word of mouth would people find out about it. At events that I catered for I would put out my cards and thats how people came to know about my company, she recalled. Nisas love for cooking was instilled by her mother who taught her how to cook. This passion helped Nisa to excel at Home Economics in school and so her journey with the culinary arts began. The chef knew that she would one day return to her homeland. When her husband, William Walker, visited Guyana for the first time, Nisa said he immediately fell in love with the country. He approached her about living in Guyana but Nisa was slightly hesitant at first. After a few visits and seeing how her children love being here, Nisa decided it was time to return. Upon returning, they spotted the cafes Carmichael Street location, once an Internet caf, and decided

to open a place where persons can relax and read a book while enjoying a high-quality cup of coffee. When we returned to Guyana we couldnt find a good cup of coffee. Were big fans of coffee, and thats when we decided well open Oasis Caf and offer something new and fresh to the Guyanese public. It was difficult at first when we came back here to start the caf. Sourcing certain ingredients and trying to find out what people wanted were a bit challenging. From day one I plunged right into the kitchen. My days initially started at 4 in the morning at the caf. I would then leave the caf and rush to the market. I would come back and start cooking again. Sometime I would even help out at the register. We started off small but it became bigger than what we anticipated. It showed us how people craved for something new and fresh and we were happy to have offered that service, she noted. Although faced with certain challenges, Nisas love for cooking motivated her to keep succeeding. Recalling the challenge at first to source certain ingredients here, she remembered when she tried to make her croissants after 13 attempts she was finally able to perfect them. In developing her expertise, Nisa reads a lot on the internet and researches successful restaurants around the world. She also spends much of her time experimenting with recipes at home and at work. Nisa enjoys creating different things and coming up with her own concoctions. Humanitarian efforts Another highlight of Nisas life was returning to buy the home she grew up in at Vreed-en-Hoop, West Bank Demerara. It was a great feeling, she noted, to live at that home once again. But among the happiness came sadness when she saw the plight of some women living in her area. Nisa stated that she saw the depression some women were experiencing because of domestic abuse. Most of them were young mothers who looked very aged because, she believes, they were living in abusive relationships. This prompted Nisa to start a womens group called WINNERS (Women in Neighbourhoods Needing Every Reasonable Support). She welcomed the women at her home and taught them how to bake, cook, and make craft. She worked with some 22 women, training them for free and even invited motivational speakers, gynaecologists, and nutritionists to speak to them regularly. It was all funded by my husband and I. Unfortunately its not active now because it was an impossible task to juggle the group and caf. Also, I didnt get anyone who wanted to head the group so it just fell through. However Im hoping that I can start back this group because Im very passionate about it. Although I dont head any group now Im still involved in the charitable work of the United Women for Special Children, explained Nisa. Through Oasis, Nisa has also been promoting the local arts. She has welcomed artists to display their artwork on the cafs walls and has also invited local bands to play on various nights. She and her husband also sponsor various sports events. We like to encourage young ones to pursue their dreams and help in whatever way we can. So were hoping to expand our efforts in this area. Also, Im planning to offer cooking classes but this is in its planning stage. I have been approached about doing a cooking show so Im also thinking about that, the culinary expert outlined. At present, the culinary pro is working on restructuring some of her recipes, making them healthier. She observed that Guyanese are becoming health conscious and she would like to contribute to their healthy lifestyle. Seeing how happy I make people with my cooking really motivates me. Also, the positive feedback we get from persons who come from overseas to enjoy our products is also very motivating. It doesnt feel like work because I love doing it. I also have a very supportive staff that share a similar passion for cooking and are very coordinated, which makes my work somewhat less stressful. On Fridays I work like 18 hours because Im in the kitchen cooking everything from scratch for our Oasis Paradiso nights which was started a year ago. Its an elegant evening of dining and has been a hit so far. Although its a lot of work, Im not deterred but rather determined because I love making people happy, she declared. Nisa urges women to pursue something they are passionate about. She pointed out that if they love

what they are doing, they will want to continue to better themselves, and this will ultimately lead to successful careers. http://www.google.com/url?q=http://eyeprime.net/2013/04/15/jamie-chungs-bikinibody/&sa=U&ei=kNfBUcTyJNTWrQGfsYHIBg&ved=0CA8QFjAD&usg=AFQjCNENVxA_KKDT4 9ZvfEplpI0WNqDoIQ A Bikini clad Jamie Chung celebrates her 30th Birthday with her Boyfriend Bryan Greenberg in Hawaii.

http://weddingnouveau.com/2009/09/interracial-wedding-noriko-john-a-california-vineyard-affair/ this article is a very well written observation on how western girls shame desi culture with their attempts to show off. this was written by an indian who has clear respect for his culture. http://www.ibtimes.com/western-women-should-not-wear-indian-sari-213632

In recent years, buoyed by the popularity of Bollywood films and the rising profile of India in the global economy, a number of female celebrities in the West have taken to wearing saris, the traditional garment of Indian women, in public appearances From Oprah Winfrey to Elizabeth Hurley to Paris Hilton to Madonna and Cherie Blair, some prominent women in the west have been seen flaunting the Indian-style clothing in various public forums. While these women are not intentionally seeking to do any harm (and in many cases are exhibiting their fondness for Indian culture), to me, as a person of Indian descent, I find the whole spectacle rather patronizing and yet another effort to both trivialize and unnecessarily exoticize Indian women and their lifestyles. In short, Western women look ridiculous wearing saris and most of them likely know nothing about Indian culture. For one thing, while these women probably think they are being open-minded and multi-cultural by donning the clothes of a far-away land that they have only a superficial knowledge of, the sari was originally intended to keep teenaged girls and women both comfortable in the heat and to look modest. While not as extreme as the Islamic burqa, the sari was designed to hide a womans figure and curves in order to prevent the unwanted attentions of men (and, by extension, a sexual assault). (Not that this has prevented millions of Indian men from bothering women over the centuries). Moreover, from a purely personal perspective, when I see an American or British woman clad in a sari at some glamorous function, I feel like I am watching some deep-pocketed trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Its a game for them, a time to play dress-up. Today, its the Indian sari, next week it might be the Japanese kimono, next month, it could be a Moroccan fez (whatever is hot and trendy at the moment). My mother wears a sari because it is her culture and she grew up with it (she could not imagine ever wearing anything else, and she has lived in the West for decades). However, ironically, as saris become an increasingly popular fashion item in the West, increasing numbers of Indian women living among the Diaspora are abandoning the sari in droves. They might wear the sari at some unusual special function like a wedding, but for the most part, young Indian ladies in London, Toronto, New York and Los Angeles wear western clothes on a daily basis, when they are at work or play or out on the town.

I cant remember the last time I saw an Indian woman under the age of 50 wearing a sari in public in New York City. An Indian girl I know (born and raised in Boston) once told me that she did not even know how to put on a sari and had no desire to learn. She equated the sari with the oppression of women in India and wanted no part of it whatsoever. Another Indian girl (from Toronto) told me she found the sari too old-fashioned and too time consuming to put on. Granted, a great many Indian women in the west love the sari and find it a glorious expression of ones unique and ancient culture but even they wear it only once in a blue moon. As for Western women, they have no pressing need to wear a sari. A blogger calling herself Gori Girl (which translates into white girl) would strongly disagree with me. She once wrote: When I read that a Westerner in a sari is committing the sin of cultural appropriation, I got more than a little offended. Isnt the intent more important than outside opinion? .. How is my admiration and love of the sari an insult to anyone? How is something so positive turned by some people into a negative? To answer Gori Girl, my response would be: You can wear the sari only if you are willing to fully embrace Indian culture, even the parts that you as a white Westerner would normally find offensive or even appalling. But by wearing a sari while having no real links to India, you come across as very superficial. However, Gori Girl raised a good point by noting that many non-western girls wear western-style clothing these days. As people all over the world turn aside from their traditional wear in favor of the Western uniform of jeans and t-shirts, shouldnt it be an occasion of joy to see that their cultural heritage is treasured by people on the outside of the culture?, she asked. How exactly is it that a non-Westerner can go between the different styles of dress, but a Westerner cannot? Is this not a double standard, and is this truly acceptable? My answer to this query is that non-western (i.e. Indian ) women are wearing western-style clothes because Western Europe -- and later, the United States -- has dominated world affairs for the past four or five centuries. They have, in effect, become the arbiter of what is acceptable and fashionable solely due to their vast economic and military power. Gori Girl rightfully added that Indian is a rising global power itself now. She wrote: My embracing of the sari, rather than being seen as a confiscation of something that does not belong to me, should perhaps be seen as my acceptance of future world leadership. The world gets smaller every day. We all have to live in it. We should all be allowed to celebrate whichever parts of it that we love, no matter if it is something native to our lands or not. Even if something is not native to ones homeland, it can become native to ones heart.

I cant deny these latter sentiments, though I respectfully disagree with Gori Girl. In an article in the Toronto Star newspaper, an Indian woman named Anju Saini said: People want all that Bollywood glitter to make that Bollywood entrance Indian outfits are so vibrant, so colorful, so sexy they cheer you up. Sainis statement perfectly crystallizes how shallow and superficial this phenomenon is Bollywood had little or nothing to do with Indian culture. The Mumbai film industry is itself a gross and vulgar distortion of Indian society and this is what is being broadcast to the world as representing India. This article was written by a western woman, yet shares similar sentiments. http://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2013/nov/10/western-women-sari-indian-dress? INTCMP=ILCNETTXT3487

Draping seven yards of material around the female form may sound a challenge but it is second nature to millions of women who go about their daily lives in traditional Indian attire.

Last week, the prime minister's wife took her cue from Indian style when she accompanied her husband on a visit to Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, the Hindu temple in north-west London, to celebrate Diwali. Discarding her signature pared-down, urban yummy-mummy style, Samantha Cameron wore a russet silk sari with an ornate jacquard-woven gold border design. "The other ladies that met her were truly pleased to see the effort that she had made, and indeed many were left wondering how she managed to carry the sari so well," said Sejal Saglani at the Mandir, when I asked how the ensemble had gone down. "The fact that Mrs Cameron made such a huge effort to dress as per Hindu customs most definitely shows how much she values our culture, religion and traditions." Yet I couldn't help feel that this was all a rather gauche form of fancy dress: another woman in the spotlight trying to make a statement by mimicking the complex cultural costume of her host. Mrs Cameron, usually confident in her own style identity and a worthy ambassador for the British Fashion Council, is wise to the nuances of dress, yet here she was, resorting to copycat style to "fit in". While her outfit may have been well received by the women who gathered in their own jewel-hued saris to meet their guests, the wisdom of her choice was questionable.

The language of clothes is carefully coded as a result of thousands of years of social, cultural and religious lore, and the unspoken rituals that dictate what we choose to wear. As a race, we make instinctive judgments based on appearance and attire. It may make us uncomfortable that superficial impressions are so fundamental in forming opinion, but such impressions are deep in our subconscious. In her book Understanding Fashion, the cultural historian Elizabeth Rouse explains: "Clothing is not a random or totally individual affair: it is a social activity. The overall pattern of our dress, be it grass skirts or tailored clothes, is a consequence of the society in which we live we cannot interpret the

clothing of other societies, we cannot understand their significance, if we have not learned the code," she says. "There are strict codes of dress for the wearing of traditional clothes. The type of fabric, the colours, the type of design or pattern on the fabric, the length of sleeves, the way a sash is tied, all act as signs and social meanings." Alice Cicolini, former director of arts and culture for the British Council in New Delhi, now a jewellery designer based in London, describes her fashion faux pas on arriving in India, wearing a short sari. "Everything about your sari is a social signifier, and only members of the lowest caste would wear a short sari," she says. "All my colleagues were horrified." So, take traditional costume out of context and it feels awkward. Discussing the specific language of costume around the world, Rouse says: "Many Asian women retain the sari as a form of dress, despite its impracticality in British winters, because of its social significance within their culture as an expression of loyalty to that way of life." And it is the significance of clothing in relation to a specific culture that makes me uncomfortable with the casual adoption of traditional attire for "an occasion". It feels too nonchalant, somehow, too lacking in respect for the rich heritage and language of such attire. Because the sari is so deeply ingrained in a certain ethnicity, it is not easily adopted by others. Jessica Frazier, a fellow of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies and founder and managing editor of the Journal of Hindu Studies, stresses the importance of getting the detail correct when wearing a sari. "It is laden with unwritten language: the way you tie it, the length, the fabric, the way the pallu is draped over one's shoulder, the under blouse, the accessories, the posture," she says. "It is a very grand statement, and finessing that is crucial. The Hindu community is very good at letting other people into their space and [letting them] borrow their cultural goods, as long as it is done respectfully, but I have never worn one for work or even to a function hosted by Hindus. I prefer to wear an Indian scarf or some jewellery as a mark of respect." It is this nod to cultural heritage, rather than slavish imitation, that tends to result in a more successful look. The Queen, probably the world's leading arbiter of social and sartorial protocol thanks to decades of state visits and experience of dress codes takes her cue from her hosts, appropriating a colour or a national emblem within a garment that itself sits within her own clothing comfort zone. Michelle Obama nailed this dress-code problem perfectly in her own Diwali ensemble last week. The First Lady cleverly chose a silk shift dress by Mumbai-born, New York-based designer Naeem Khan, deftly combining a western silhouette with a skirt embellished in exotic silken embroidery that would not have looked out of place on a Rajasthani maharaja. She looked at ease and elegant, seamlessly blending two cultures in a way that was far removed from the clumsy costume-wearing of others. I turned to Bandana Tewari, the fashion features director of Vogue India, for her thoughts on the matter. "If I wore a kimono today I wouldn't be as comfortable as a Japanese lady, because I don't have the cultural upbringing to look like a lady in it," she says. "Women who wear saris every day can do cartwheels in them, because it is second nature to them to move easily in them. "I think it [the sari] is a more versatile garment than the rest of the world sees. When I travel outside India, the Indian women I see elsewhere are much more traditional in the way they wear them. Here, we have much more fun adapting our saris to a modern lifestyle, blending our own aesthetic with western influences. I wear a little black sari in Italian chiffon with a bikini blouse and Louboutin heels,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soraya_%28musician%29 Soraya's maternal relatives were Lebanese Christians who emigrated from Lebanon to Colombia.[3] Soraya's mother, Yamila Gharib Cuevas, had been a housewife in Colombia. Soraya's father, Gregorio Lamilla, worked for an exporting company in Colombia; in the U.S., life was hard for the family, so to make ends meet, he worked three or four jobs. Soraya died of breast cancer on May 10, 2006, aged 37. She was first diagnosed in 2000, at the age of 31, after finding a lump while conducting a routine self-examination. She was diagnosed at Stage III and had a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction as well as radiation therapy and chemotherapy. In addition to her own death, Soraya lost her mother, a grandmother, and a maternal aunt to breast cancer.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsai_Chin_%28actress%29 Spouse(s) Frank Chang Peter Coe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mircea_Eliade In 1930, while living with Dasgupta, Eliade fell in love with his host's daughter, Maitreyi Devi, later writing a barely disguised autobiographical novel Maitreyi (also known as "La Nuit Bengali" or "Bengal Nights"), in which he claimed that he carried on a physical relationship with

her. One of Eliade's best-known works, the novel Maitreyi, dwells on Eliade's own experience, comprising camouflaged details of his relationships with Surendranath Dasgupta and Dasgupta's daughter Maitreyi Devi. The main character, Allan, is an Englishman who visits the Indian engineer Narendra Sen and courts his daughter, herself known as Maitreyi. The narrative is again built on "notebooks" to which Allan adds his comments. This technique Calinescu describes as "boring", and its result "cynical"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bengal_Nights_(novel)

It is a fictionalized account of the love story between Eliade, who was visiting India at the time, and the young Maitreyi Devi (protege of the great Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, who became a famous writer herself). Allan is an employee of the company ran by engineer Narendra Sen. When sent to work in a rain-abundant region of India, Allan gets sick of malaria. He is returned to Calcutta and admitted into a hospital. After treatment, Sen invites Allan into his own house. Shortly after the young guest fells in love with Maitreyi, the hosts daughter. The forbidden love gradually grows with Maitreyi and Allan ending up together. Chabu, Maitreyi's sister, unwillingly witnesses the lovers hugging thus bannishing

Allan and isolating Maitreyi. Both suffer immensely. To rid himself of the suffering, Allan retreats into a bungalow in the Himalaya mountains where he meets Jenia Issac. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maitreyi_Devi She was the basis for the main character in Romanian-born writer Mircea Eliade's 1933 novel Bengal Nights. In her Na Hanyate novel, written as a response to Bengal Nights, Maitreyi Devi denied claims of a sexual affair between her and Eliade during the latter's sojourn in British India

Deaf baby who survived parents brutal slaying back as an adult to learn about unsolved triple murder EXCLUSIVE: Colleen Turzynski was a diaper-clad 17-monthold in March 1990, when police in Clifton found her in an apartment, with the corpses of her murdered parents and grandfather. The child had lived for a week by eating cheerios from the floor and drinking from the toilet. Comments (13) By Corky Siemaszko / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Sunday, January 19, 2014, 3:00 AM Colleen Turzynski cries recalling her parents who were murdered in Clifton, N.J., in 1990.

Bill Denver for New York Daily News Colleen Turzynski, 25, says the truth about the stabbing deaths of her parents and grandfather in Clifton, N.J., started trickling in when she was 7 years old. 'I was mad about it. It hurt my heart a lot,' she said. 'I was very depressed about it.'

Inside a second-floor apartment, they found a horror show. The rotting corpse of a naked man was lying on a bed. In the corner of the room, a slain woman sat sprawled, her clothes drenched in blood. On another bed, police found a second slain man dressed in nightclothes with a pillow covering his face and a suitcase across his legs. All three had been stabbed to death. And curled up on the floor amid the carnage was a mute

witness to the mayhem a 17-month-old baby girl named Colleen Turzynski, wearing only a dirty diaper. Baby Colleen as she came to be called stayed alive for a week with the bodies by drinking water from the toilet and eating Cheerios scattered on the floor.

Bill Denver for New York Daily News Turzynski was a 17-month-old baby in a diaper in March 1990, when police found her in an apartment in Clifton, N.J., with the corpses of her parents and grandfather, who were stabbed to death. But she could not tell police what happened at 176 Ackerman Ave. and not just because she was too young to understand. Like her murdered parents and grandfather, Colleen is deaf. Now 25, Colleen is back in New Jersey after years of living with her fathers family in Poland to fill in the blank spots of her past. I never got to know my parents, she signed to Robin, the foster mother who took her in as a baby and with whom she

is now living. I want to meet people who knew them. I know so little about them. I want to know what they were like. Colleen, whose doomed mom was from Singapore, also wants to restart her life in a place where she doesnt stick out. In Poland, everybody is fair and I used to get teased at the boarding school I went to for deaf children, she said. They thought I was Japanese.

All three adults were found stabbed to death in a Clifton. N.J., apartment in March 1990. Colleen laughed a little as she recalled how the Poles struggled to pronounce the classically Irish first name her parents gave her simply because they liked it. My classmates, they all thought it was beautiful, she

said. Much of what Colleen knows about the murders she keeps in a decorated wooden box that she got from Robin, who asked that her last name not be published. Amid the newspaper clippings, there are black-and-white photos of Colleen with her dad, Kazimierz; her mother, Lee Kui Yin; and her grandfather, Mieczyslaw Turzynski. From her mother, who was 39 when she was killed, she got the high cheekbones and the dark, slanted eyes her Polish classmates found so exotic. From her father, who was just 35, Colleen got a brilliant smile and clear complexion.

Bill Denver for New York Daily News Baby Colleen with her mother Lee Kui Yin Turzinski and Abdul Qodoos, who was jailed in the triple murder and later deported to his native Pakistan after investigators were unable to pin the killings on him. But when Colleen removed another photo from the box, her smile vanished. It showed her as a baby with her mother and a swarthy, slender man with a mustache.

This was Abdul Qodoos, the 25-year-old Pakistani that Colleen and detectives who worked the case believe stabbed all three victims to death on March 18, 1990. I hate him, she signed to Robin. I hate what he did. There was no justice. There was no justice. Qodoos was part of the wide circle of deaf friends that the Turzynskis socialized with. He was arrested after police found him with Kazimierzs camcorder under his bed, along with some $2,100 in cash. We were convinced he was the guy, said Harold Pegg, 68, who was then an investigator for the Passaic County, N.J., prosecutor. But he had us at a complete disadvantage. He would pretend to cooperate and we would ask him a tough question and he would say he didnt understand the signs. In the end, they could not pin the murders on Qodoos and he was deported to Pakistan after spending a year in jail.

Now, more than 20 years later she

has returned to the U.S. to learn more about her past. I handled a lot of jobs and this was the toughest, said Pegg. Im not a soft guy, but I kept picturing the little girl in the apartment climbing up to cuddle with her dead mom. That case still haunts me, added Ronald Fava, a lawyer in Wayne, N.J., who was the Passaic County prosecutor at the time. Colleens dad was performing as a mime when he met her mom. She was an actress in a deaf troupe from Singapore that was touring then-communist Poland. Smitten, Kazimierz Turzynski soon proposed and later fled Poland for Singapore after he was twice arrested for posting Solidarity placards. From there, the young couple moved to Clifton, where Kazimierz landed a job at a rubber products plant and where Colleen was born Oct. 13, 1988. Around that time, Qodoos entered their lives. He worked for a tailor in Clifton. And he was frequently at their apartment.

She said her grandmother tried to shelter her from what happened. 'I would see my dad in pictures and my grandmother would tell me how funny he was, how friendly he was, how he loved to travel.' Cops zeroed in on Qodoos shortly after Colleen and the bodies were found on March 25. He had a brown belt in karate. He seemed to Pegg capable of committing that brutal a crime. There also appeared to be a motive: Grandfather Mieczyslaw kept a nest egg of $3,000 to $4,000 under his bed and that was gone. So was the camcorder Kazimierz had just used to record a family trip to the St. Patricks Day parade in Manhattan. Qodoos insisted he was innocent. He said Kazimierz let him borrow the camcorder. But he gave conflicting statements about his whereabouts at the time of the murder. Soon there were reports that he owed the Turzynskis $400. Those were followed by rumors that he had been having an affair with Kazimierz, rumors he strenuously denied in an interview with The Bergen Record newspaper.

Meanwhile, Colleens grandmother, Teresa, flew in from Poland to claim the girl. Lee Kui Yins sister and brother also expressed interest in adopting the girl, but neither came to fight for the child.

'They thought I was Japanese.' Clifton city councilman Peter Eagler said the city and the Orthodox Christian church the Turzynskis attended in nearby Saddle Brook rallied around the family, paying for the funeral and providing burial plots for Kazimierz and Mieczyslaw. Lee Kui Yins ashes were returned to Singapore. Everybody came to help, he said. It was a real community experience. Karen Ellis Deland, the lawyer who represented Teresa Turzynski, remembers how enchanted everybody was by Colleen. When she visited my family, we would turn up the stereo real loud so she could feel the vibrations and she would dance, she said.

In the end, the judge decided Colleen would be better off in Poland. She has had no contact with her mothers kin.

She said her grandmother tried to shelter her from what happened. I would see my dad in pictures and my grandmother would tell me how funny he was, how friendly he was, how he loved to travel, she says. She told me my mother was always cooking Asian meals and how my father got skinny because he started eating vegetables. But Colleen said she had the sense that she wasnt being told everything. I would get nervous when I would see thin men with mustaches, or when I would see blood, and I

didnt know why, she signed. The terrible truth, Colleen said, started trickling out when she was 7. I was mad about it. It hurt my heart a lot, she said. I was very depressed about it. Colleen said one day she hopes to get the tapes her father made with the camcorder that wound up in Qodoos hands. That is my past, she said. csiemaszko@nydailynews.com

Moving to India in 1945, he began to work across location and while in Uttar Pradesh, he stayed as a guest with an Indian doctor, P. J. Chandy and his family. The sister of his host, Elizabeth Jacob (Baker called her "Kuni"), worked as a doctor in Hyderabad with the same leprosy organization. The two met and decided to marry but there was considerable resistance and so they decided to wait. The work and travel allowed them only brief periods of time together. They both found that they did not agree entirely with the ideas of the mission and in 1948 both of the left the organization and got married.[5] They travelled to the district of Pithoragarh on a honeymoon trek. The availability of a doctor in the region that they travelled to led to the locals visiting them in numbers, even offering them a place to stay and set up clinic. The Bakers settled here and lived on for sixteen years[6] before moving to Vagamon in Kerala in 1963 and some years later to Trivandrum.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then George Clooney is telling us that he's really into his new girlfriend. The Oscar-winning actor and Amal Alamuddin recently went on an African safari together, and new photos have emerged from the couple's romantic getaway. Clooney, 52, and Alamuddin, 36, visited Tanzania back in March, and in one photo, they can be seen gazing into each other's eyes. Although the couple was first spotted together in October, Clooney initially denied relationship rumors. Clearly, things have changed! The jet-setting duo has been spotted together in the Seychelles, Washington, D.C., New York, and most recently Los Angeles. Just last week, Clooney and Alamuddin went on a double date with John Krasinski and Emily Blunt in Studio City, California. Here are a few things to know about Amal, George's new leading lady: 1. She's accomplished: Alamuddin is a lawyer, who specializes in international law, human rights, extradition, and criminal law. In 2011, she started representing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in his fight against extradition. 2. She's smart: The Oxford-educated Amal is fluent in three languages: Arabic, French, and English. She is a graduate of the New York University School of Law. 3. She's an activist: The brainy beauty is an advisor to former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Syria. This is a topic Clooney is well versed in. The actor was arrested last year for protesting outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington, D.C. 4. She comes from a highly esteemed family: Amal's mother, Baria, is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster in the Middle East and the U.K. and has interviewed the likes of former President Bill Clinton, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and President Fidel Castro, to name a few. Her grandfather was a government minister. 5. She doesn't need Twitter: Although Alamuddin was a hit on the social media site Ashton Kutcher and Julia Gillard, the former prime minister of Australia, were a few of her famous followers she shut down her account. Clooney spoke out in November about how he finds Twitter stupid, so we gotta wonder coincidence? https://in.lifestyle.yahoo.com/married-couples-separated-german-language-test-082323066.html BERLIN (AP) Michael Guhle met the love of his life on the beach of a little fishing village in

Vietnam. Thi An Nguyen was selling freshly cooked mussels and fruit to the German tourist and they immediately clicked. Soon the Berlin nursing home worker was saving up all of his money and vacation days to visit Nguyen. Marriage was supposed to bring them together. Instead, it was the beginning of a long ordeal apart. Germany blocked Nguyen from entering the country after she flunked the language test that Germany requires aspiring immigrants to pass even those married to Germans. "I thought marrying the person you love and living together was a human right," Guhle said in his modest two-room apartment on the outskirts of Berlin. "Apparently this is not the case in Germany." Germany adopted German language regulations for prospective immigrants in 2007. Most EU countries including France, Italy, Spain and Sweden do not require foreign spouses to pass mandatory language tests before they join their partners in Europe. Austria, Britain and the Netherlands are among countries that require language tests before foreign spouses can enter the country, but experts say Germany's test is the toughest. The European Commission has criticized the law in Germany, saying it may violate European treaties. And a legal challenge to the European Court of Justice is expected to be heard this month. As things stand, however, binational couples like Guhle and his wife face costly and daunting challenges. Germany defends the law as a way to prevent forced marriages and to help immigrants integrate more easily. Critics maintain the law discriminates against the uneducated and poor. Most agree immigrants should learn German, but opponents of the law say that could be done more quickly, cheaply and easily in Germany. "Well-educated people who can afford the language classes won't have any problems meeting the language requirements quickly but not the others," said Hiltrud Stoecker-Zafari, the head of the national Association of Binational Couples and Partners. "Therefore we think: This country obviously wants to send out the message that financially weak and not wellqualified spouses should not even come here." Fueling that argument are some of the exceptions to the German language proficiency rule: People with university degrees and people who have founded companies are exempt. Another quirk: If a non-German EU citizen living in Germany wants to bring his or her non-German speaking spouse to the country,

that's not a problem. A Frenchman living in Berlin could bring his Vietnamese wife to Germany immediately but not Guhle. "We only wanted to live together," said Guhle, a soft-spoken 43-year-old with a stubbly beard and warm gray-blue eyes. "How are you supposed to learn German if you are poor and uneducated and live in a remote Vietnamese fishing village?" The government defends the measure, saying it requires only basic language knowledge including conversational German and some reading and writing skills. "If an immigrant doesn't have to start from scratch but already knows how to communicate, he will be more motivated to successfully work on his integration after he has received his visa," said a spokesman for Germany's Interior Ministry, speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with ministry policy. While the government does not have statistics to show how many forced marriages were prevented by the regulation, the spokesman said that authorities have repeatedly been told by German diplomatic missions abroad that victims of forced marriages use the language test as a way to avoid getting into an unwanted marriage. "They repeatedly and on purpose fail the test to make sure they don't get a visa for Germany." It is not clear how many couples have been separated by the law. According to the latest official statistics, some 40,000 people took the test at Germany's partially state-funded Goethe Institute language schools around the world in 2012. Of those, around 14,000 failed and would not have been able to obtain a visa. When Guhle first went to Berlin's city hall in the fall of 2006 and said he would like to marry his girlfriend from Vietnam in Germany, an official told him without explanation that it wasn't possible. The couple then decided to have a traditional wedding with 300 guests in Nguyen's fishing village Doc Let. They got married in Vietnam in the summer of 2007 and planned to move to Germany straight away not knowing that Germany had just enacted the language law. Their relationship soon became a story of long stretches of loneliness and thousands of euros in expenses. Guhle, a low-paid nurse's assistant, took on a second job cleaning streetcars at night so he could finance his wife's German classes in Nha Trang, the nearest city where they could find a private German school. He paid for her hotel for nine months while she studied, and also financed the trip to Ho Chi Minh City where she would take the language test.

"These classes are unacceptable for people who are illiterate or come from rural areas," says Sevim Dagdelen, a Left Party lawmaker who has been lobbying to scupper the law. "There are many couples whose relations were shattered because of all of these burdens." Nguyen failed the test and did not get her visa. She kept trying to learn German, but it was never enough. German authorities even refused to issue a tourist visa to let Nguyen visit her husband in Berlin. "I reduced my life to working and visiting my wife on vacation. Every morning and night I would call her," said Guhle. "It wasn't easy for her either people in the village gossiped about why the man from rich Germany wasn't able to come and take her home." The couple took their case to a German court. After proving that Nguyen had repeatedly tried to learn German for over a year, she was finally allowed to immigrate. She arrived in Berlin last September. Sitting in their apartment, the two hold hands and talk to each other in a chaotic but fluent mix of English, German and Vietnamese. They call each other "honey" all the time. "I'm so relieved to finally be in Germany with my husband," said Nguyen, a shy woman with long black hair. The 27-year-old has signed up for an intensive German language class and is eagerly looking for jobs at Vietnamese restaurants. "One is married in good times as in bad," Guhle said. "I guess we started with the bad." http://b.vimeocdn.com/ts/172/802/172802505_640.jpg http://vimeo.com/26180478 http://bradleyimages.net/blog/weddings/lona-and-steve.html http://bradleyimages.net/blog/weddings/lona-and-steve-cont.html
