Thanks man, I appreciate you replying. I have a few Fijian friends here in the bay area too. And alot of them do use Singh. Never figured out why.

And, you`re right, it`s amazing what we can teach other when all we have to do is ask!

Gothmo: We weren`t fighting. I really was curious. My culture is not that popular (because it isn`t large) so anytime I can help explain it, I`m game.

Just talked to her, turns out she`s not punjabi, she`s Fiji-Indian so it`s different. Apparently `Singh` is really common for Fijindians, both male and female. Thanks for the info, always good to learn more about other people`s culture.

Ya, many Sikh immigrants to new countries often drop their surnames and keep the middle name as the new surname. Ask her what her real last name is. Or better yet, just ask her what area her family is from in Punjab. Chances are pretty good that is the same as her last name.

Report back, plz.

"She can`t be a Singh. Singh is the common middle name for men of the Sikh faith. It comes from the Sanskriti word, Simha, which means `lion`. Females use Kaur."

...I know a girl with `Singh` as her last name.

She can`t be a Singh. Singh is the common middle name for men of the Sikh faith. It comes from the Sanskriti word, Simha, which means `lion`. Females use Kaur. Furthermore, you can tell by her headdress and the one eye/one world henna on her hand that this girl is both: getting married and is from THAILAND. Quite far from Punjab.

But I suppose having this knowledge before-hand still wouldn`t have changed anything.

Prejudice - you`re doin` it right!

Belly dancing is from Middle East, not India. D:

She was probably at a wedding...or the bride guessing from the henna on her hands and the bangles on her wrists, and well...the wedding attire. Or maybe it was Cultural Day or something. Either way, pretty awesome outfit. :)

I live in what we call "little India"; I`m a minority in the neighborhood with most families being Sikh. There are a few Hindus but they stay clear of the Sikhs more often than not as the 2 tend to fight. The -only- time I have seen someone dressed like that was for a wedding. Yes, the women generally wear saris and they generally are gorgeous (if they`re younger women; the older ones tend to wear more drab colours), but I`ve never seen anyone wear something like that just because. It`s a celebratory thing.

Either way - GORGEOUS sari.

Oh, there is a difference between stereotyping, bigotry, and racism. Stereotyping is funny, the others are not.

"...so...what are they?"

Northern "Indians" actually belong to the Aryan race. The Aryan Race was one of the first races to migrate from China to India.

So if it WAS a call centre, don`t you think that she`d be sort of rigged up for telecommunications?
That means wearing a headset and microphone to you Americans.
