The Chinese Indians

The Chinese first immigrated to India about 250 years ago. They set up businesses like dry cleaning, restaurants, hair cutting salons and flourished. However, they continue to be referred to as Chinese! How long does it take for an immigrant community to be counted as the face of the nation. That's the question India was asking when there were racist remarks made about the Indian-American Nina Duvaluri when she won the Miss USA pageant. My article on racism in India that India is still impervious to!
