Hindi speakers as a general rule do NOT learn a South Indian language even if they live and earn their livelihood in South India. Their justification is they could always find someone who speaks Hindi to get by. On the other hand it is an anathema for a South Indian NOT to know Hindi if they live and earn their livelihood in North India. If they say that they could get by since they could always find someone who speaks English it doesn't wash despite the fact that both Hindi and English are constitutionally the official languages of India.

A classic example of the double standard of Hindi speakers is this forum's Hindi-thumping Rashmun who boasts that he lived several years in Bangalore without ever bothering to learn Kannada since he could always find someone who spoke Hindi to get by. The same individual wastes everybody's time posting reams and reams of copy/paste jobs as to why it is so important for Tamilians to learn Hindi regardless of whether they seek jobs in North India or not.

Yeah, we hindians don't just keep double standards, but are pretty shameless about it too.

Small example. Just told my sorta non-hindian xh to call and tell the hosts that we will be upto 1 and half hour late. He goes, 'Why I can get ready in 30 minutes'. I said that I have atleast 1 hour to get ready as I am going to be coloring my hair now.

He goes, sarcastically, 'oh wow. you always blame me for getting late every time, and look at you now. What if I crib about it now, ha?'

Not one to be shamed, I simply shrugged and said, 'ok, crib about it then'.

Edit: why is this thread in foods section.
