btw..Zero invented in India..so it is a desi word...

it is also wrong(illetrate) to say "O"

I hate if someone say 'oh' instead of zero

Re: Top 21 things an Indian does after returning to India from "US".

As a contrast to the above posts, here's one.
When desis return to India, they mostly crib / b1tch about the Roads / Traffic / Buffaloes or donkeys on the road.
Here is a herd of runaway buffalo wandered across a suburb of the eastern US city of Baltimore, before being corralled into a tennis court.
................
More than a dozen police cars and one helicopter took part in the chase in the Pikesville area. Officers used lounge chairs beside the tennis court as shields and formed a human chain to manoeuvre the buffalo - or bison as they are also called in the US.

(oye gaay bhais ko to sirf "hai hai, tharrr tharrr" karke bhagaate hai India mein, aur yahaan helicopter aur cars USA hai bhaiyyaa)

..................
"Somehow they figured it out. I've got to give a lot of credit to the creativity of our officers," police spokesman Shawn Vinson told the Associated Press news agency.
Galti inki nahi hai, training kabhi liyaa nahi naa aise sichuasion ka.
