I know im seeng this post really late, but gee! thanks. i felt good reading it. this is exactly how i feel when i have to explain to tamil mami's about what im studying.
The worst part is when they say "Isnt there any place in chennai that u got in for this course???"
Maybe when the next coolest car or mobile phone or something has my tag on it, they will scratch their temples.
