Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

'Indianness'

I have a justified peeve. I am Indian-born, I live in India, and thankyou, but, no, let not the Net confuse me with 'Red-Indian', 'American-Indian' or 'native-American Indian'. Will we need to copyright our nativity? Or will we soon have labels that read Asian-Indian or India-Indian? As it is, if i google 'Indian xxxxx' I end up bemusedly looking at mixed results...

Why do we repeatedly allow ourselves to be defined by others ->
India -> Land of the people along the Indus valley - did spoonerism make Sindu - Indus?

Hindus -> H + Indus? Linguistically decided at somebody's desk?
