Even the Canadian comedian Russel Peter also made fun of his own adult indian men and the tradition inherited we all must respect.

So adult indian men first attributed their problems to the Brits, then the Chinese, then the Malay, then their own wife and daughters, BUT never themselves the men.

And the indian male community leaders continue the preaching……and be revengeful to others.

We give foreign labors all the job opportunities, depriving our own poor communities any real job opportunities. If they don’t opt to work for secret societies, where else should they look for employment to earn a decent living. All we are doing is busy and obsess with how to get rid of BN to replace it with PR, which over the last 5 years proven to be more ready to perpetuate the wrong of BN than to right the wrong doing of BN. No one seem bother to ask both sides of the political divide on how to preserve jobs for the local, the powerless and the poor. And you want to fight crimes. Even Aliran still fail to do anything about foreign labor issues! Don’t forget the Indians also (are said to) have the highest number of criminals shoot dead by the police or die in police custody.

Yet in every other country, Indians are amongst the top leaders and achievers, be it in government, innovation or corporate sector. Even Obama thought it fitting to wish all Indians a Happy Diwali.
