Hahahahaha - that's just hilarious!

Ok, well, I guess I'm probably a bit more sensitive to these issues than you all seem to be. Point to note - I'm British, but naturalized (with a z) as a British citizen.

So if I said that my guess from your posts would be that you are from the US or Canada, you'd find that racist?

There's no requirement to be a Brit (naturalised or otherwise) to post on BE. It really doesn't mean anybody is being racist if they just guess that somebody is from somewhere else (unless they were also derogatory about the nationality in question, in which case it may well be).

The phrasing of the post is particularly Indian or Pakistani sounding to me.

Being from India or Pakistan is a nationality not a race

Nicely demonstrated! I guess I wouldn't. I suppose it was just the negative connotation associated with the original assumption that threw me off. "That's bad English so it's probably Pakistani or Indian".

I don't think anybody said it was bad English - but it is written a certain way which would lead most (correctly, as it turns out) to assume the OP is from India or Pakistan.

No racism at all IMO, and presumably it's relevant to the OP's questions, so now that he's confirmed his nationality those in the know should be able to help.

Stay in India is my advice, lots of Indians are moving back from the UAE at present.
