Ok don't waste your time trying to question the high tech from India I think I know who you are already, General "saanp" If you're not, welcome and thank you so much for showing your intent to sign up in these forums! I look forward to more shows of explict ignorance and huge ego from you. You could join us in the India forum too. For the time being, just feed yourself admiring your own country.

Now in the above - Elfreako says that the HIndi Characters look fuc&#ing fantastic. He also talks of High-Tech environment. Two very separate things.

He never says Hindi characters in LED look hitech.

But someone here in a hurry to criticise India obviously jumped the gun a bit too early

Obviously Amazing Race isn't the best place to know about India. Don't be taken in by stereotypes that people find easy to project. Amazing Race is no exception to stereotyping.

Don't we love all that western stereotyping...
In CNN any picture in a news article on China or India or something always has raggedy-looking people or a crowd of bikers on dusty streets.

And the worst thing is we all fall for the stereotypes. I have seen people in this forum get all upset about "wrong ideas" and "stereotypes" of their own cities and countries. But they often don't hestitate to stereotype other cities or nations.

Pretty strange!

The so called democracy. Democracy works only for wealthy countries. Most Indians are still deprived of basic needs, what good is democracy then? Will democracy feed you? You think those poor countrymen have rights, freedoms?

Ah...dunno why I said those things it just popped into my head.

Well, I wont argue with you, it's pointless, but cut out the crap, besides it deviates from the main focus of this thread.
