Culturally or "racially"?

Giving your stamp of approval to someone who collaborated with the Nazis was particularly rich), and you are also doing a fair share of talking out of your ass.

Something tells me that you're full of ****, lol.



What's your point I am of Jewish blood. I guess you don't really understand how Judaism works, do you? So why I would give a **** about the Nazis again? It didn't affect me personally. It's an issue that occurred in the past and its debatable just like anything else. My family didn't leave Kerala, just to live in Israel in 1948. They stayed in the land that treated them with respect and made sure no harm was done to them. I could care less who you know or who you talk to. How do Jews and Indians talk, if you're such an authority? You don't see me researching you past posts do you? Just because you don't like the truth or you feel inferior for whatever reason, don't take it out on me and make it personal.


I guess you can't back up your BULL****. I did with facts. Try that next time. You're the type who gets brainwashed by the media says. You never dig into facts.


What happened to all the points I made on your BS on colonialism? I 'll give you a simple point for you to think about. America used NAZI scientists to aid their missile and rocket programs, just like the UK and USSR. Does that make them any worse than Netaji?

Assam is slightly different to me. It seemed there was intermingling between South Asians and Southeast Asians in that population. But the rest of the Northeast is racially Southeast.

My opinion is that the language will give you a more accurate judgement than the race. Language is part of culture.

Mostly physically, but also in some ways culturally, like there are some members of the Sino-Tibetan and Austro-Asiatic languages there.

Up 'til around 1900, more or less depending on what part of Nagaland. I have a Naga head hunter shawl, not kidding. It is a ceremonial shawl given to men after they chopped their first head. It's no longer the same culture, far removed now, but they kept on making the shawls by tradition and I have one of those given to me by a Naga friend who was a student at the Christian seminary where my dad was a professor. It's red-dyed wool, with black and white stripes on it, and black latex art on the white stripes. The figures are spears and bull heads. I treasure this shawl. Naga people are in my roots from since I was born.

Holy ****! I got a shawl just like that but I left it back in India. My good friend (Naga) gave it to me. You are very lucky to be related to such ppl. I admire the culture and pride I saw. My honest opinion.....the ppl of the Northeast were pretty progressive and forward thinking. At least the folks I encountered in Bangalore. Its damn shame how some get shabby treatment in Delhi. Hopefully, the Northeast is given more space in textbooks so, the rest of India can be educated better on their history.
