I've placed the foregoing subsection headings (of Rrjanbiah) here since they make the article look ugly. When someone has the time to actually place content under them, I will gladly stand by as the page sees their addition. --LordSuryaofShropshire 12:41, Sep 7, 2004 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't have much of patience to discuss with you. As long as you have your crappy prejudice mindset, you'll complain me for everything. *thread plonk* --Rrjanbiah 13:20, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Dude, you're such a psycho. Relax. No one's complaining and I'm not being prejudiced or biased. I'm just leaving these here until you write something for them! The moment material is found no one's stopping you. --LordSuryaofShropshire 22:30, Sep 7, 2004 (UTC)
I'm sick and tired of you rrjanbiah. You are cantankerous, belligerent and unwilling to discuss anything with anybody. I feel exasperated because I know you will just doggedly shriek vitriol at me right now, calling me names that don't fit because you don't even know me and none of my edits do anything to display any stereotypical characteristics; the only thing I do is happen to disagree with you and ask for intelligent compromise. It's been a while and you've kept playing silly games. Now, you've finally written stuff, explaining your strange titles which have been posted as if they were somehow scientifically or academically standard, which none of them are. I'm asking for mediation and placing a POV issue notice on this page. I hope you can grow up one day or the other. By the way, your written English is terrible.--LordSuryaofShropshire 06:47, Sep 11, 2004 (UTC)

Issues?? I have read somewhere that when someone leaves their home to explore the world they discover so much and when they return home, they find themselves a foreigner having discovered the world. The real issue is parochial paranoia of the contemporary Indian mindset, which refuses to believe that Hindu culture allows for assimilation of new ideas. Now i bet the author of the issues will paint me off with one brushstroke as 'NRI Syndrome'.

Attempting to point to the weaknesses or areas of opportunity in Indian culture is not NRI Syndrome. NRI Syndrome is more precisely inbility to accept the status quo having witnessed the possibilities. NRI Syndrome is good for Indian culture. - Soc

interesting topics, these should be included in the article, at least a brief discussion with piping to more detailed existing or new articles as appropriate. Thanks. (talk) 06:40, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Copy and pasteEdit

Copy and paste in section Statistics on Indians in the US from Or could it be copied from Wikipedia?

Support split of NRIs in AfricaEdit

There is a May 2019 proposal to split the NRIs in Africa section into its own article. I support this split. I would support splits of other regional sections. There is a lot to say, the culture and history is distinct for many regions, and this article is already long. Blue Rasberry (talk) 22:53, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Either keep all continents together or part each continent out into separate article with brief summery in this article with piping/linking of detailed articles. Thanks. (talk) 06:38, 12 October 2019 (UTC)


There is a need for a source review in this space. I just read this and I wanted to share it -
