Wanted female/male, kannadigas/tamilians -any Indian to be best pals (even 'just' pals will do) with a lonely Indian couple in Maryland (or even Virginia/DC- we do not mind driving the extra mile to meet you!)
-We don't care if you have kids/single/couples like us/have in-laws/pets with you (see how flexible we are).
-We don't care if you are vegan/non-vegetarian/herbivore like us/don't cook
-We are not bothered if you live in a studio apartment/mansion, drive a corolla/ford/mustang or take the metro.
All we need are some fun loving Indians who we can invite for dinner (and in turn be invited!), watch movies, play Pictionary, be our company on our numerous Shenandoah trips, ramble on about Indian politics/ India-pak relations (J's request), Bollywood movies, desi restaurants that make the best masala-dosai, basically just talk!
Because we are tired of spending weekends by ourselves, screaming ourselves hoarse that Slumdog Millionaire was crap and no one contradicting our views, having to listen to other friends (especially the one in Texas) going on about how they were invited to numerous Diwali parties and we in turn telling them 'oh! how lucky, we were just...by ourselves', telling my prof after every weekend/ break "No! we did not have any guests over!" and because we cannot pluck up courage to go upto a fellow Indian in the desi store and say "Want to be friends?"
We cannot promise to do your laundry, but we can help you in doing your taxes !! (is that enticing or what?)
Someone? Anyone? ........ please?
(We feel like the kids in 'Mary Poppins' who wrote a similar ad for a nanny! - We hope we get a 'Maryamma Popingaru')
