So it was one of those calm afternoons which I had to myself sitting in the corner most table at the mexican taco (incidentally it has the best view of the busy Brooklyn street) munching away my burito and swaying to the kudha jaane number. And it is in moments like this that my karma decides to ball me. So here comes a chinese/japnese/korean/nepali or what ever you call those yellow people and of all the empty tables in the Taco sits beside me. And for extra nuisance we had this african american guy coming and showing us his questionable id saying that he worked for a children’s organisation and was collecting funds. To me he appeared stoned so the philanthropist in me din’t tug at my heart strings to donate some small change. The oriental guy on the other hand got aggresive and after the beggar left started cribbing on how in today’s times it was not possible to trust anyone. I din’t pay any heed to his rants and continued munching my food. suddenly he focuses all his attention on me and asks me : ” are you pakistani ? ” i neat frown begins to appear on my face and he noticing this asks oh ok ok ” srilankan ? ” the frown manifests. ” oh i get it. u r indian right ? ” i just nod. He takes my nod to be a sign of approval for the chat to continue and says ” india and pakistan no good ? ” before i could reply ” always fighting for a piece of land. man u guys need to get a life.”
in any conversation involving me i generally like to be the guy who’s doing all the talking. The chinki dude seemed to enjoy my evident discomfort at an issue which swells national pride in any Indian. Instead of telling him to shut the fuck up I sarcastically asked :
“where you from : China/japan/Taiwan/Nepal/Burma/Indonesia/Bhutan/Korea? cos you all look the same to me.”
The oriental guy : ” i’m from china ”
CS: China ? well, china has an amazing record when it comes to violating human rights. The vast majority of pirated products come from China. Is that ray ban you are wearing real ? China is a world leader in pollution. Do you guys ever check your carbon footprints (ok ok i was dazzling hime with bullshit here !) You guys have/had disputes with India, Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Japan.
Now tell me who needs to get a life ?
In you face Chinki saale!
