I'm a Goan woman, working in Mumbai as the founder of a studio called Totem Creative. I try to make the world happier, safer and more meaningful. I believe education, knowledge and awareness, art, writing and creating Social Impact are my means to achieve that end.

Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days.

A customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Sarson Ka Tel?" (Mustard OIL)
The clerk says "You a Sikh?"
The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.
If I had asked for Italian Olive Oil, would you ask me if I was Italian?
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?
Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?
The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't."
The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Sarson Ka Tel, why did you say I
am Sikh?"
The clerk replied, "Because you're in a Liquor Store."
