Do you think it's true? I think we make the perfect Duo. I myself personally have an Indian best friend and he's a tech genius. He takes care of my technology problems and I solve his girl problems. Better than Starsky and Hutch combo, I would say.
I donno about others, but I do have a lot of East/South East Asian friends. I think we understand each others better cos even though we are from different countries, many Asians(South, SouthEast,East) have very similar cultural practices/worldview, such as respecting your elders,family and a drive to succeed. naturally this common ground reults in East/South east asians and Indians hanging out together/being friends more and more. I see this in my college as well...The engineering and other heavy-science related majors are 90% Asian(South, EAst,SE)..easily..the white and other ethnicities are almost a rarity.lol
I have friends from pretty much every EA/SEA ethnicity except for Indonesia/Malaysia (well I know some but not really friend-friends). I get invited to the Chinese new year parties...Volunteer to help out with the yearly Japanese Festival and not to mention the occasional Korean hot pot.It's a great experience to experience the culture of others and vice versa. This summer I'm gonna teach my non-South Asian friends how to play cricket
. So yeah..as you said We Indians/SEA/EA make great friends.
Btw here is an interesting article from the local newspaper
On Stevens Creek Boulevard on Wednesday, five teenagers from Cupertino High School -- three Chinese-American, two Indian-American -- looking for a place to have lunch offered an optimistic answer to Lai's question.
"We don't care, we're all friends," said Serena Tang, 14, who is Chinese-American.
The group debated whether to eat at Shanghai Dim Sum or the newer Indian market Pasha's a few doors away. If there's any downside to the pan-Asian movement into Cupertino, they said, it's the near-absence of black, white and Latino students for a truly integrated campus experience.
"There's no variation," said Diksha Venkatesh, 15.
"We don't really see many black people," said Nirmit Shah, 14. And the "white kids usually hang out by themselves."http://www.mercurynews.com/census/ci_18046...amp;CPIorderBy=
