all things indian

So the Indian Supreme Court passed a judgement today which basically states that freedom of sexual orientation is now a fundamental right in the country. And any discrimination on basis of sexual orientation will now be taken as unconstitutional and against the law.

This from a country where homosexuality was illegal till date. Like, today I am literally shook™ but so, so proud of India.

Romance in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam cinema

i talked about wanting to make out with my girlfriend in the bus with my sister, and how I’d take my gf to the back seat where it’s apparently “forbidden” to sit and lowkey make out with her and I dreamt about how lovely it would be to have a gf i can wear all the motorbike accessories for and look cool and shit and take her on long rides and kiss while leaning on the bike :(((((

Instead of making assumptions about people... how about messaging them before spreading things on your wall. North America has 235 Indigenous Languages 100 of which are dying out, and many schools in the Pacific NorthWest and Plains Region of the United States have colonialized languages in schools, and arent teaching us the 10 languages native to Montana and the Dakotas. I realize youtube has plenty of resources and so does skype. However, it would be great for us to write a curriculum

*this person continued messaging with the following: “Also the teepee cloth question was legitimate. My partner is Chikasaw and Choctaw, and my family is Iroquois. Asking for the benefit of supporting native businesses is what many folks do. But youll just lose interest if you come at your followers in a sense that they are just "white” people searching to appropriate. I understand that we deal with assimilation and intersectionality on a daily basis. But to just treat your follower base with oh you did this because makes a resource group look bad"

first of all, as a Plains Indian, just wanna let you know there are more than 10 languages indigenous to Montana and the Dakotas (at least 3 dialects of Salish, Kutenai, Blackfeet, Cree, Lakota/Dakota/Nakota, Gros Ventre, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Crow, Anishinaabe, Arikara, Mandan, Hidatsa)…looks like your google search was a little lacking. 

second, you cannot just write a language curriculum for an indigenous language, not without consultation with elders and fluent speakers, cultural upbringing, etc. and you definitely can’t create a universal curriculum that is going to work for any/all age group, school, location, or indigenous language. these things have to be grounded in specific communities and traditional knowledges in order to be successful. even for people who are from that tribe and grew up in the community and are culturally strong, it takes years to do that kind of thing for just one dialect. if you are interested in creating a curriculum, i suggest selecting a specific language, moving to that community, and working with the people who have already started that work (elders, linguists, teachers, prayer keepers, etc). 

third, Haudenosaunee people don’t live in tipis. their traditional style of housing is a longhouse. Chickasaw and Choctaw people don’t traditionally use tipis either. IF you really are Iroquois (you know that’s a confederation, not a specific tribe, right?), and IF your partner is really Chickasaw and Choctaw, i suggest you seek out elders or community members that can teach you more about your cultures and traditional ways. i never called you white, i expressed frustration with your ignorant and insensitive questions that clearly show a lack of respect for what we do and for the diversity among indigenous cultures.

fourth, this is a FASHION blog. this is not an All Things Indian blog. we are not here for ANY of the stuff you asked for. don’t ask an ignorant and entitled question and then get mad when someone gets irritated and doesn’t wanna answer. 

Kathakali (Malayalam: കഥകളി) is a highly stylized classical Indian dance-drama noted for the attractive make-up of characters, elaborate costumes, detailed gestures and well-defined body movements presented in tune with the anchor playback music and complementary percussion. It originated in the country’s present day state of Kerala during the 17th century and has developed over the years with improved looks, refined gestures and added themes besides more ornate singing and precise drumming.

Hey!! I'm currently interested in an Indian girl (who I think is interested in me too!) and I'm wondering if there are certain things that Indian women look for in a guy? Also, is there any hostility for Indian parents when their daughter dates a non-Indian man (in my case, white)? Thank you!

im so glad you came to me obviously i am a master at knowing all things indian women and i know everything about pleasing indian parents and since ur a white this will help tremendously because i am ur only reliable source so listen up 

  1. indian parents looooove when you are super dominate towards them like right in the moment you step into the house (DONT REMOVE YOUR SHOES THO THIS IS CRUCIAL KEEP THEM ON) make sure you tell them straight up that you are the Boss!!! don’t show any courtesy or respect thats like a sign of weakness and shit 
  2. us indian women are all from the same background and religion and all the unimportant stuff so what I’m trying to say is like kama sutra is like super important AND appropriate to discuss with ur lovers parents INFACT its rude not to explicitly list the details of you and your partners sex life so make ur you tell mom and pops all the juicy deets  
  3. at the end of the beautiful arrangement tell them with ur white power that you own their daughter because we love dowry and history so thats great and that you want to move in with them as a family <-OBVIOUSLY you will be the new head of the clan if you follow these steps right

wow omg this advice is gold and you will do amazing at impressing your indian woman’s parents don’t worry u are white! colonizing all things indian naturally runs in ur veins Go Get Em Tiger!!!
