I am an INDIAN. I am in Minority :(

Thoughts for a special occasion - 26 / Jan / 2012 - 63rd republic day

 8% think "I am a Bengali"
 7% think "I am a Telugu-ite"
 7% think "I am a Marati-ian"

But, Where are "I am an Indian"?

80.5% think "I am a Hindu"
13.4% think "I am a Muslim"
  2.3% think "I am a Christian"
  1.9% think "I am a Sikh"
  0.8% think "I am a Buddhist"

But, Where are "I am an Indian"?

16.5 M think "I am a Mumbaitie"
13.8 M think "I am a Kolkotan"

Some think "I am a vegetarian"

Many in India think food itself is a luxury and
eating one full meal is being blessed!
But, where are "I am the Indian"?

"I am a Scheduled class"
"I am a Scheduled Tribe"
"I am a Backward class"
"I am a most backward class"
"I am an Aadivasi"
"I am an other backward class"

But, Where are "I am an Indian"?

I am a politician
I am a bureaucrat
I am a Journalist
I am a doctor
I am a government employee
I am an unemployed
I am a Aam Aadmi
But, Where are "I am an Indian"?

In a country of 1.2b, I find myself to be IN a MINORITY. No one gives a damn about me!..

I am an INDIAN.
