Yesterday, upon his return from a class reunion of 15 years back, Dr. Kumar described for us how arriving dressed in shorts he had waved his long-time class mates from a distance, and how they all wondered what for a foreigner came there. He laughed as they couldn't recognize him.

As you can see, his beautiful daughter is perfectly Tamil skin toned.

The literal translation of the Tamil word used for 'foreigner' is 'white man'. As there are always exceptions to any language's grammatical rules, here's one.

I imagine albinos were the first white men (...and women) to step on the south Asian's sub continent's soil, so they probably deserve some respect for paving the tolerance & familiarity road for us who came later.
