Thank you for calling me to order.
Shows how we Mods moderate the Moderators.
Proves my point! That too in the open!
I was also called Sam in the Army or at least they wanted to.
I would be damned to be called so. I am an Indian, and if my name is not good for the the others, then the others are not good for me!
I may not be a Hinduvta icon, but I am damn proud of my Indian lineage and I would be damed if I were to trade it to be 'acceptable' to others!
If they are Indians, they should be proud of what they are.
And not show their Hinduvta and Indianess on their sleeve on forums keeling over and kowtowing to foreign influences! Utter nonsense Sam Kamath if one is not a Christian! Selling ourselves to the foreign influences and then flaunting Hinduvta on our sleeves! Shyam is a Hindu name and not Sam!
I marvel at their cheek to call my Indianesss to question!
One must be a GENUINE Indian in all facets!
Why must I be Sam?
This double standard gets me dizzy!
You are archan, but then you could be Archie. Did you use that name?
No. I take it you are proud to be what you are.
I take it that you are an NRI and yet you use your original name!
Proud of you!
I have been accused of being on a Crusade etc. I am not. I want transparency and truth! My religious inclination is of no concern. The concept of India suviving all this turbulence is what is my concern!
