"I AM INDIAN"

Writer/Performer: Comedian Rajiv Satyal
Director: Meena Dimian
Cinematographer/Editor: Brandon James Salgado

Script:
————

I’m Indian. Just Indian. I’m not South Asian any more than Russians are North Asian.

I’m not ASIAN Indian or EAST Indian. There are 1.3 billion of us - we don’t need a cardinal direction, OK? It’s not our fault that Christopher Columbus got lost. 

Sure, we love our states, but there’s strength in numbers - 1 out of every 6 human beings is Indian, so stop dividing us. The British already did that - once.

And we need to quit saying that we’re not Indian because I wasn’t born here or sound like this or eat that. Our HEARTS are Indian. 

We are feelers. We gave the world the romance of Bollywood films and the music of Ravi Shankar and Zubin Mehta and Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle and the allure of the Kama Sutra.

We are thinkers. We are great at math because we INVENTED numbers. And we’re pretty good at letters, too. We are doctors and engineers and techies. And we mean business: we’re the world’s 3rd largest economy and the wealthiest ethnic group in America. 

We are huge and efficient - India is all on one time zone. That way, everybody in the country is still late - but at the same time. We never invade anyone because we already have everything: chess, the ruler, the button, wireless communication, arranged marriage, flush toilets, steel, DEMOCRACY - all us, all India. 

And you’re welcome, world, for yoga, and elevating cricket into a multi-billion-dollar sport, and making food so good that you sailed across the planet to come have some.

Our food is hot. Our country is hot. Our women are hot. Our men are… lucky?

Where the world prays, we meditate. We practically invented religious tolerance and we gave you Mahatma Gandhi and Pundits and Gurus and Karma and Dharma and Kismet and Reincarnation. The motherland is magical and mystical. And no matter who you are, you can find yourself here… in Incredible India. Jai Hind! 

I. AM. INDIAN.

And I’m late. Told you I was Indian.

I’m Mexican but I’m sure I was Indian in my past life. 

Hope be lucky in the next one. 

Anyway… No matter, Rumi says: Lover longs for the beloved when it is far away from her. Now I know what he meant. I’ll keep waiting for come to my motherland.

Lots of love to all mera pyaara  Indians around the world!!

"Radharani is a tenderhearted feminine counterpart of the supreme whole, resembling the perfectional stage of the worldly feminine nature. Therefore, the mercy of Radharani is available very readily to the sincere devotees, and once She recommends such a devotee to Lord Krishna, the Lord at once accepts the devotee’s admittance into His association." —Srila Prabhupada

Regarding the color of Balaramaji, He is colored like milk white with little bluish tint and rosy luster. Our idea of whiteness is of the milk foam.
