Overheard on car radio, an ad/teaser for something called the Clearasil All Clear Indian Laughter Challenge. The RJ goes:
“Do you know why China, in spite of being such a big country, doesn’t play cricket? Simple! Kyonki Cheen log jo hain na, woh sab dikhne mein ek jaise hain. Toh agar ek out ho jaaye, woh dressing room jaa kar apna mooh saaf kar ke waapis aa sakta hai aur kissi ko pata nahin chalega.”
(“Because Chinese people all look the same. So even if one guy gets out, he can go to the dressing room, wipe his face and come back as the new batsman, and no one will know.”)
HAR HAR, watta great joke yaar!! And yet another addition to my long list of things to recall when friends relate anguished stories about racism against Indians abroad.
On that note, also read this piece by Ruchir Joshi.
