r we not INDIANS ??

Yest I was sitting at one of my distributer's place n both of us were talking serious business. There was one old man probably a guest since I was seeing him for the 1st time. He asked me where is my native place. It was very strange as he didnt ask my name n what I do.
After being quite for sometime his next bouncer was what is my caste. I got confused n said what . He made his ques clear again as if it was the most important thing which defines anybody's identity even more imp than his name. I finally replied Indian. He reacted like he is hearing this word for the 1st time. I repeated I am an Indian.
Certainly it hurt his ego n he gave a ful lecture on our roots n origin. It was very similar to a scene of Swadesh movie.
After he finished off I said him "isliye maine aapse ye kaha ki main ek bhartiya hoon"
At last he would have understood that the time has changed n the new generation understands the meaning of the word INDIAN.
But still a major part of our population are still stuck in the age old thinkings. They dont feel proud in saying themselves an INDIAN.
I dont want to go into detail of this controversial topic but it feels bad when people ask such nonsense ques.
Jai ho...
