I dont think there is one perfect way to describe who is an Indian. There is this poem They say shes from another country by Imtiaz Dharker that talks about how if you belong to one country it is expected you have a standardized identity, which almost never happens. Every part of the country is full of different people not just in terms of physical appearance but also in the sense of customs, food, religious practices, and languages. For all communities in the country, it is a game of us versus them, them being the rest of the country since it always made to seem that everyone else but you feel a certain way. Wherever one moves to in the country, from a part of the country, the disparities in the way of living are stark. Yet, we try to connect and make that part of the country our home by finding something that reminds or feels like a part of our personal identity whether that would be a certain way of cooking, or a certain custom, a song or even a movie. Unlike most countries of the world, I dont think it is feelings of belonging to the country Mother as it is called in India, or the shared culture that makes us connect with each other. Rather I think it is the simple things that we relate to like Sharmaji Ka Beta, a Bollywood references, or the annoyance at chai being called chai tea, the way similar festivals are celebrated, the antics of Indian parents, that help truly resonate our experience as Indians. It is truly difficult even under broad categories to put in words what an Indian means, or who can be called an Indian. I genuinely believe the only thing that our Indian identities have in common are our differences.
