Do you send your kids to private tuition after school or do you teach them yourselves? What are the pros and cons of sending kids to private tuition after school? Is it an unnecessary burden for the kids or is it seen as much needed assistance for the kids in terms of education?

A follow up to the discussion we started way back in the little india days. I found this one article dated Jan 2008 about the now famous International Irish University which i was following closely. It was quite an elaborate operation with graduation ceremonies etc.

Now the website is empty.

What is being Indian all about?

Post by frags on Tue Jan 06, 2009 5:30 pm

I thought of starting 2009 with an interesting topic. I have been reading so much about being Indian in mainstream press and the internetz...

Such as this article:
http://mt.m2day.org/2008/content/view/16654/84/

That particular article questioned the so called unequal distribution of Indian representatives in Parlaiment.

This lead me to the question on how we define someone as being Indian. I know others may beg to differ but if seen from a nationalistic perspective, we obviously aren't Indians. We are not citizens of India to call ourselves Indian.

I know thats not what we Malaysians mean when we call ourselves Indian. I realise that it has a more cultural connotation rather than a nationalistic one.

If culture are things that we consume(and not just in a literal sense) like food, movies, books, news, hobbies. And we reflect this with our sensibilities and philoshophies then quite clearly we are not Indian as we are multi cultural in identity.

If culture is language, well language proficiency is not across the board. People pick up whatever language that is common in their surrounding and Malaysia is a country with very diverse range of communities. My point is that Tamil may not always be the first choice of language for all 'Indians'.

If culture is religion or how some people may argue that the Hindu religion is closely tied to being Indian, that would disqualify Christians and Muslims who consider themselves to be Indian. Surely that can't be right.

Frankly if seen from any of these perspective, I woudln't consider myself as Indian at all. I don't really follow the Hindu religion closely. I don't consider myself to be culturally Indian as I feel more global rather than unsuitably compartmentalised as Indian.

Which gets back to the arguement about being Indian. I think being Indian is a fallacy because there is no such thing as a dominant culture that overides everything. All culture these days(well most) is a mix of everything else.

Of course if you think RACE is the dominant factor that defines whether a person is Indian or not, then I think you are seriously misguided because race is just a mindset of a culture that is trying hard to justify its old ways of doing things.

Think about it...What makes you FEEL Indian? What do you think identifies you as being Indian?

PS : My point was not to argue on which is the BETTER culture but about encouraging discourse about What makes YOU Indian.

I personally appreciate culture and am fascinated by them(all cultures). From what I have seen, there is no such thing as a more superior culture.

first off, race is race... religion is religion
caste is caste... and culture is culture

One is not the same as another. I believe that your struggle above is about your IDENTITY as an Indian. Also...

I think being Indian is a fallacy because there is no such thing as a dominant culture that overides everything.

Your thoughts here reveal that you have incorrectly grasped the idea of what being an Indian is all about.

Any Indians out there wanna help out? Laughing

1) Thats why we are malaysian indians
2) Hinduism is closely tied to Indian, but does not mean non-Hindu's are non-Indian. This part sound more like a confusion over history and classification definition.


The first thing that tells me im somewhat linked into indian origin ....hmmm.... definately my parents. clown
