An Ode to Phoren-Returned Homilies

Granted this guy has lived for a couple of years in the "First World" and come back.

What he does not seem to realize is that just about any Desi-in-USA who can cajole a friend into dropping him to the nearest airport in America has done so, and boarded an airplane back into this land; has recorded and re-recorded such stupid self-loathing thoughts on at least 16 million occasions. Some having the benefit of turning out as classics, while others being its' subject.

Regardless, my point - this is 2005 and not 1971.

Just remember this you just-back-from-Umrica self-loathing Desi - "Whatever you have observed or experienced, at least 5 million others did. And almost 90% of those morons wrote a stupid piece not unlike yours or this one".

Nilu, even now. :)
