Its enough to watch JAY LENO"S tonight show,to see how dumb ordinary americans are...they dont know the first thing about anything.they have almost nil general knowledge,and hardly know anything much about other countries or cultures.their lives revolve around their daily life,that's all.in contrast,Indians,not only know many languages,in addition to english,they are also more intelligent,and to say the least,indians are very brilliant in every field.they are talented,hard-working,and have so many good ideas,while americans dont even know anything that lies beyond their shores.

An Indian would be able to do calculus in 9th standard perhaps whereas an American only sees a first Calculus book in college. But an average American high schooler would be able to repair a bike, or a car or build a PC. And would be able to maintain a savings account.

If an Indian father tells an Indian kid "your disowned" its more or less game over. Many disowned youths here end up in asylums or commit suicide. But not for an American kid. An American takes getting kicked out as newfound freedom & a chance to live life as a pioneer.

Many claim that US folk have no GK (GEneral Knowledge) and I am honestly not sure as to how much of that we ourselves have....If u say "tell me about Mauritania" an American will ask "is that fruit or vegetable" but if u ak an Indian the same Q....he'll tell u "MAuritania is ...more
