A couple of weeks back, little N’s homeroom teacher, Mrs. D, announced the name of a new student who was to join the class the next day. Imagine (Caucasian) Mrs. D’s surprise when her (pretty non-controversial) announcement was, apparently, greeted by loud guffaws and cheers. Exclusively by the desi population in the class. Which in our esteemed school district, I would (conservatively) estimate at 90%.
Name of new student: Aamir Khan.
