It Is Greedy & Unscrupulous Indians Like This, Seema Verma, That Gets All Of Us Brown Folks A Bad Rap.
This is such a shame and travesty. Why?
Just so, so uncalled for. Yes, it is easy to have property stolen in San Francisco these days. We had our rental car broken into, and bags stolen, in San Francisco in 2016. But, we ‘played the white man‘! We claimed on our insurance. We didn’t try to rip off anyone.
This is so typically Indian — I am sorry to say. Avarice.
One trip to S.F. with $47,000 of luggage?
One item does make sense. $325 for moisturizer. Yep, that I believe. Indians love their lubricants.
Just distressed I. Why? Can’t folks do the right thing?
It just gets all of us brown folks a bad rap. I know. People take for granted that brown folks are always on the make — Apu to the lead.
This was a GREAT story. It made my day. So good to see that we still have decent, compassionate, charitable folks like he.
Mr. Jay Singh, please take a bow. You have done all of us Asians proud. Good on YOU.
This is from the story:
“He said, ‘I’m hungry. I’m stealing it for myself and my younger brother.’ I said you need food? I’ll give you food. That’s not a problem,” Singh said.
Mr. Singh, modestly, attributed this compassion and charity to ‘Indian culture’. That is true.
But, I have a hunch that it goes beyond that.
I cannot, alas, be 100% sure, but I suspect that Mr. Jay Singh is a sikh — despite the lack of a hat on his head, or a bracelet on his arm.
Jay Singh can very well be a Sikh name.
All ‘Singhs’ are NOT Sikhs, BUT ALL Sikh men are ‘Singhs’. Get that. Having a last name Singh is the norm for a Sikh man.
So, why am I making a big deal that he might be a Sikh.
Sikhs have a deeply ingrained tradition when it comes to charity and giving — especially food to the needy.
I know quite a few Sikhs. Most are AMAZING folk. Generous to a fault.
That bracelet they are supposed to wear bears testament to that. They wear it to remind them that that is the hand with which they do good.
Sikhs, because some wear turbans and have beards, are often mistaken for Muslims. They are not Muslims.
Get to know a Sikh.
This just happens to be a great time to talk about Sikhs. They have a major holiday, ‘Vaisakhi‘, that always coincides with the Sinhala New Year, coming up this Sunday, April 14.
Yes, accidents happen.
But, it is a shame that we now have litter and debris on the Moon! Yes, on the Moon.
They are claiming that Mount Everest is now like a garbage dump. It would be a shame if we had debris all over the surface of the Moon.
Yes, of course, they didn’t want it to happen, but did they do adequate testing to really, really avoid a failure. I remember reading that their very first rocket burn failed due to a basic programming error. I, alas, did a lot of work with Israeli high tech companies during ‘dot.com’. I learnt that they are cavalier and rush the software. SMILE.
By and large I am rather fond of most Indians (and they are a lovable bunch of buggers in general), but they can drive you to distraction and beyond. They are a bunch of cowboys and cowgirls at heart — which is the real reason they venerate cows. That I have to suffer the ignominy, daily, of having to contend with two Indian-run outfits “Willow” (cricket) & “Hotstar” reminds me — daily — that they really couldn’t hold a successful bloody orgy in a Mumbai whorehouse. Their competence is to be incompetent.
This satellite destruction fiasco is but proof. Q.E.D.
If they jeopardize the ISS that would be criminal. I despair.
But, you have to laugh. Because, they will just wag their heads and say: “Very sorry. Very sorry. Not do next time. Very sorry“.
Hotstar US has NO intentions whatsoever of honoring the $50 Amazon Gift Card Offer!
That they have a dedicated option (press 2) on their Voice Response System just for those calling about the Amazon Gift Card offer is a dead giveaway.
So, this is how their scam works.
They will claim that you subscribed using a PROMO CODE that did NOT include the Gift Card! As far as they are concerned matter closed.
So, you are screwed.
Very dishonest, disreputable company.
They are helping propagate the stereotype (à la Simpsons Appu) that Indians are dishonest. That is why I go out of my way to point out to folks that I am NOT Indian (that all 3 million of the Hindu gods (most of whom are also duplicitous in their own cute ways)).
From what I can see Hotstar US has NO US presence. I was going to file a claim with the ‘Better Business Bureau’. But, you can’t. They are NOT in the US. This was probably another reason that they opted for this scam. It is a STRAIGHT online scam.
Simply put they are nothing but thieving bastards. Stay away from them. Don’t let them scam YOU.
Search ‘cricket’ & ‘Sling’.
