I like this post
I relate to 11th, but not the others. So I do have a little generic Indianness in me. But that’s obvious, isn’t it?

I am weird, but I wasn’t thaaaaaat impressed with the taj Mahal. I mean it was nice, beautiful and all. But that’s it. There are equally amazing and beautiful things in India other than the Taj Mahal.
I have never liked AB. He is a very good actor, no doubt, but he is not my fav…
And yeah…Fountain head. You might as well add Alchemist and Five point someone to it.
Do you have anything in common here, at least one point, now come on be honest…

Hehe, I will be honest, I think the 11th point suits me perfect too, but I like to read people like Dalrymple, Gaimon, Kierkegaard, I watch movies like The Machinist, Dark City, Slacker, Natural Born Killers, Scanner Darkly etc. and music, I listen to mostly Alice in Chains, Dream theater, Shakti, etc so I am an 'Indie' person, I guess it is because of the wonderful company I have kept especially in Eng. College

This sounds like an 'apologia', but is more of a 'polemic', if you know what I mean.
I hope I haven't bored you :(
