Watch this video—I AM INDIAN

The above video is written and performed by a  renowned US-based Comedian Rajiv Satyal. Following is the sum up of what Rajiv says in this video:

We as Indians are today being divided as East-Asians, North-Asians and South-Asians, But why? We are “Indians” solely Indians. Then why are we being divided once again into different groups repeating what the British did to us years back.

India being the third largest economy in the world with a population of 1.3 million why is being pushed towards the verge of ethnic division? Just because an Indian is born in a different country, lives in a different country, sounds like this and eats like that. NO. All this doesn’t mean that we have lost our nationality and patriotism. Our HEARTS are Indian.

India is not just good in numbers, but in its people as well. We haven’t left any scope for the world to not identify us. We are charming, after all; we have given the world iconic singers. From Ravi Shankar to Zubin Mehta to Asha Bhosle to Lata Mageshkar, our music industry is flourished with the best voices. Our romantic Bollywood films and the allure of Kama Sutra are famous all over the world.

We are brainy, we are the ones who invented numbers. We gifted the world the greatest mathematicians like Aryabhata and Srinivasa. We are doctors, engineers and techies. And when we mind our business, we Indians are the third wealthiest ethnic group in America.

We welcome the world for Yoga, to taste our scrumptious cuisine and turning cricket into a multi-billion sport. We meditate, we practice Ayurveda and we have everything-chess, flush toilets, wireless communication, arranged marriages, monuments, scriptures, temples, churches, Gurdwaras and DEMOCRACY.

Our motherland is magical and mystical -with Mahatma Gandhi, Abdul Kalam, Jawaharlal Nehru, Pandits and Gurus being born to it. We preach Dharma, Karma and religious tolerance. We have kismet and Reincarnation. And no matter where you live, which country you belong to, what color you have, what religion you practice, you are WELCOME TO INCREDIBLE INDIA!
