woooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww that's fantastic. Fantastic stuffs. I liked it. Specially the schedule part, got to go part and stuffs. Those were true. I hate those kind of NRI's. I am a NRI but i speak Indian English and talk a lot of good things about India here. I even make presentations on India and prove how good India is. I don't consider myself NRI but an Indian.

And the best country is India.
