Five Questions I am tired of Answering ever since I moved out of Assam

Below are the five questions I am tired of answering ever since I moved out of Assam :  


  •      “What’s with the fake British Accent?” or “Do people not speak Hindi in Assam?” OR “No matter what language you speak, it feels like you’re speaking Bengali” OR (The BAAP of all) “You have a Bangladeshi accent”


And these comments just leave me with nothing but a jaw drop. :-/
For God’s sake,it’s not a fake accent and it’s definitely neither British nor Bangladeshi. If anything it should be, it would be Assamese or better – my own accent. And if I know Bengali, that’s an add-on; that doesn’t make me a Bengali person.
And yes, in Assam most of the people do know and speak Hindi. Hmph!


  •         Do you eat dogs?


 And my dear, why did you leave snakes and cats and rats and anything that crawls or climbs? Well, the answer is a NO. I don’t eat dogs nor do most of the people I know (well, some may just do and it's their choice). But yes, I have started eating crabs AFTER COMING TO MUMBAI. But then that would be normal, right? Anything is normal if the people you know do it, ain’t it?



  •     Why is Dispur the capital of Assam and not Guwahati? Dispur is not even a city.

Okay, even I don’t have an answer to that. And to be honest, the same thing bothers me. Let’s see if I can talk it out with Tarun Gogoi and let my friends know about it. :-P



  •     Curd, rice and sugar? OMG.

Yeah, right. The people I met in Hyderabad cook curd rice which is actually a salty dish. Well, even when I had a taste of it I couldn’t accept it at all. But I didn’t cringe or whine about it unlike people who see me having curd and rice with sugar do.



  •     Why are your eyes not tiny enough?

But dahling, why don’t you come to Assam first and check out the size of everyone’s eyes there?

  2. It's still better than people calling you Odissi...and the accent comment bothers me too,specially when people from the eastern side speak normal Hindi/English & then get a comment like,"OMG are u really not a North Indian?"

  3. And here is one more if you want to answer ... Why do people ask you these questions? And why do you answer? And why people are so bothered? Are they planning to relocate to Aasam and are gathering information?

    Take it easy dear ... frustration on such issues leads to defects in code ... :) ... And that's the last thing we need I guess :)
