Spicy opinions about Indian bashings in Australia

I have been posting opinions about the ‘curry bashings’ from all sorts of people this week.

I found the following views, posted by an Indian man, in India, on the blog General Indiscretion. Refreshing, to say the least:

“ I’ve been talking to people about this, and one of my friends (who’s never had a chance to go abroad) wants to know why people go to other countries ‘when they know’ that white racist people live there. It seems pretty clear to me why: the most attractive feature is usually that of freedom and privacy, of which you get very little in this country. In a western society, you are in control of your own ideas, attitude, lifestyle and choices to an extent that would not be possible in India except for the reasonably affluent (and thereby socially exempted).

To me, at least, what a few (ignorant) white people think (‘go back to where you came from’) is unimportant.” Racism in Australia

“If we could just move beyond ‘Imagine how the parents would feel to see their beloved child in a hospital in a foreign country’, everybody, and I mean everybody, would be extremely relieved. If you tell yourself that you love your child more because you’re Indian – just think back to the times you nearly beat him to death for being a child.

‘Don’t go to Australia’ – please don’t. It’s too good a place for you, and the government even lets you complain about inane things like petty robberies that in India would have been ‘asking for it.’ Indians in Australia: Man!
