Do you want to drive Indian Immigrant Population back to India?

Ban Potlucks.

Or best create a law that bans food in get togethers. While at it ban Antakshari, any children based talent show, bhangra music and singing in general.

Anon: Guntur la Krishna paramatma thondri na, avarukku NTR jadai illa, adhunaale avar krishnar illa nu solluviya?

Ellarum avana (Nilu) yethi vidareenga and that is never good.

Banning Bhangra should be the primary concern. Whenever someone from the West lands up in India, the first thing that he is made to believe is that Bhangra is our national music. That, to me, is way more puke-worthy than anything else. May be Anthakshari comes to a close second spot.

machi is that you..cant believe it..how come u say no to food man.......ur potlucks suck then....

here's an idea...make it a poker nite instead...so after food you can sit arnd and play poker....
$10 to get chips and winner takes all...
if u are a moral police and whine I don't play for money, hunn hunn hannn....then winner donates all the money to his nominated charity and claims tax benefits...
this way u dont have to put up someone singing or dancing to bangra......

well u can play Poker, Risk, Carcassonne, Taboo, Pictionary is fun too......there r heaps of stuff to keep u busy on friday and saturday nites.....just have to think n explore

How about Ford winstars and the infamous H1 french beard ?

not to mention 5 dollar Walmart Jeans ara pant.

Recently moved from the US to the UK - I am discovering that that Bhangra is our national music and Chicken Tikka Masala is our national dish.
Maybe its time I organized a potluck and antakshari party. :)

Being a victim of it, I am 100% with you on Potluck...but Antakshari...hmmm...let me think...I just organized one and it was one of the best fun filled event.

IMHO, what you are against is not Antakshari, Potluck or Bhangra ;-) but the basic idea of doing same things repeatedly over and over again until it looses it charm. And before anyone realises, it becomes more burden than fun.

You ask: Who's r u?
I say: I am spiderman ;-)...ur ozzie-friend's friend and who thinks he understands ur plight and where you coming from on this topic.

C ya arnd in blogland..
