Well...looks everybody has kissed and made up...

>> 4. I do not think Chubby or Carl answered my particular question on why Indians seem to associate the word 'American' exclusively with whites.

Ramki, IMO, I made this point right in my original transcript...it is two things..America's view that American refers to white americans and our own colonial mentality (please, no more discussion on this aspect!). Do you agree that this is the reason?

Let me close my rather short note with an interesting snippet...In one of the NRI families I know, the son is married to an American; the way I was relayed the news - "He is married to an American...but she is a Jew" :-O
