a very important public service announcement


  • hindi is a language
  • hinduism is a religion
  • hindu is someone who follows it
  • not all indians are hindu
  • not all indians speak hindi
  • the ‘d’ in hindu and hindi is pronounced like the ‘th’ in ‘though’
  • desi, pronounced “they see” and not daisy or dessi, means south asian
  • south asia = pakistan, india, bangladesh, sri lanka, nepal, etc. for those of you who have never looked at world map
  • desis are asians and have every right to call themselves that. shocking, I know. take your time to digest that.
  • I can’t believe I have to make this post
  • it’s 2013 and people still don’t know how to google this shit
  • but freak the fuck out when you say Britain when you meant, god forbid, England
