    Most of Indians take vacation from March to June, when schools close and summer temperature soar.

    I remembered the 1960's news now, when sinhalese tried to deport all tamils back to india, through the guise of indian tamils...
    Now these injustices were some of the reasons fa the formation of LTTE...
    U have got no one else to blame other than urself....

    Epic troller

    Sterday there was one chinese bragging about chinese immigirants in indonesia and singapore...
    What a change?
    There are hordes of illegal chinese even in chennai... But fa ur day dreams, u could be a good fiction writer

    No offense but are your cousing working as waiter there? Because normally resturants will charge same for the food irrespective of customer's nationality. I agree Europeans and Gulf Arabs should be more generous on tips.

    Sorry but it seems even my bigger eyes can't understand your racist term, I don't how you can see that.

    You are the comedian because you are trying to compare Illegal Indians flooding to Sri Lanka to Pregnant Women from Mainland China to HK when HK is a part of China and Sri Lanka is not part of India.
