I don't think South Asians are forgotten, people know celebrities like Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit, Tabu, Priyanka Chopra, Kajol, SRK etc. Bollywood (Kollywood, Tollywood, whichever you like best) movies have a big fan base (hehehe I <3 them ^-^) through DVDs and a lot of people like filmi music...
But crunchyroll isn't the place for South Asian stuff lol, you'd have more luck going to a Desi site

hahaha noooo well every film industry has crappy movies, of course. I better example would be something like Devdas ;)

Man, let's see you get into Yale and become the president.


man, do you honestly think he got into Yale on his own merit?
its called legacy. and daddy's influence.
I hate shit like that, because it excludes "normal" people from getting into Ivies and you can obviously see what kind of garbage legacy admissions produces.

Now Bill Clinton is someone to admire. He was a dirt poor hick who got into Yale and became president.


Boo hoo hoo. There goes the daddy's card. It's always daddy's work.

Perhaps, so this thread doesn't go out of line, people should offer some external links that shed light on the many misconceptions regarding South Asian Culture.

Also, please be wary that threads like these are usually susceptible to subtle racial undertones and discrimination. Flaming will not be tolerated. First instance of such in this thread, and its locked.

south asian means.. india and nepal etc rite?


yes


i don't think so.. i think people don't categorize them under the asian race though.. maybe this could be why you feel it's forgotten/overshadowed by east and southeast asian people?


i think in america people dont c them as asians but in europe people c south asians as asians and not east asians and southeast asians


does this thread also includes southeast asia?? sorry i am confused..because you said something about south asia then east asia...why not just say southeast asia?
and i don't understand, why did you say they are forgotten? sorry, please forgive my misunderstood ...! that can't be because some Southeast Asian countries are going to be really developed country and are recognised by all around the world of it's technology development, skyscrappers (tall buildings, is that correct?? ) and etc...so, why are they forgotten??

the term asians have evolved from people from asia to chinese, japanese, and korean people. those from south east are now called pacific islander and those from the south remain to be called indians/hindis

I'm South Asian, but I still consider myself Asian. Heck, there're a lot of Nepli/Indian/Sri Lankan ppl in my school's Asian club. I think that most people don't consider us Asian because Chinese people (and others of East Asian origin) have been in the US for over a hundred years while South Asian started comin to tha US in like 1970 (in great numbers, that is). All cultures are different, you should just relax and accept your own. Be proud to be South Asian, so what if no one considers us Asian, we should start by considering ourselves to be Asian. I just wanna make sumthin clear tho:

South Asia ≠ Middle East

Two totally different places. And if you think about it, the culture of South Asia is a lot more similar to the East & Southeast Asian culture than Middle Eastern.

For people who has limited knowledge of Asia, that would be true. But for us, who knows, that would be false. It is just many stupid people are actually expressing their thought in public, giving the public stupid information, and "ta-da" everyone now knows a stupid information, they pass it to their children, and their children pass it on, and on. And what do you know?
