    Desis in the Media...

    Always highly interesting to watch, especially it's a long drawn-out court case. It's not uncommon here in SA, but the Shabir Shaik trial which has finally come to an end after 8 months, drew a lot of attention, especially since he was the Vice President's financial advisor and had corrupt relations with him, for which he is now being convicted and sentenced. I'm not familiar with juridical proceedings, but it was disconcerting that despite the fact that each allegation concerned the VP Jacob Zuma, the man himself never appeared in court in 8 months. The media is speculating that he will either resign or be fired. Anyhow, this is another twist to politicians in the media, as well as Muslims, which still have a strong political and social standing in South Africa.

    It's a pity that Nelson Mandela's financial advisor Ismail Ayob (also Muslim), is also being taken to court by Mandela for using selling his name.

    Why oh why do people get so greedy for money?

        Last time he was covered by the news, he said that the United States is the biggest threat to world peace...

        Since then, I have not heard nor read about him...

            Indeed tis a lot of fun… here in Canada, we’re enjoying the harebrained Grewal / Kalia / Dosanjh affair… yes… 3 desis are the talk of the town and its becoming a brown person ignominy.

            The Conservative MP Gurmant Grewal had made public recordings which he claims prove the Liberals offered him and his wife prestigious postings in exchange for crossing the floor of the commons and voting with the Liberals in last month's confidence vote which the Liberals won by the slimmest possible margin - 1 vote!

            Now forensic audio analysts say the tapes were doctored!

            On top of all this, stupid Mr. Grewal is also being embroiled in a stupid incident where he asked a passenger at Vancouver Airport to deliver a package to Ottawa. Kanjoos desis! use fedex

                              it's more of a we-phenomenon, nothing wrong with it and contrary to your points above, most ethnic communities, be it Desi, Chinese or Black... all engage in exclusive self-discourse.
