Hey Rachida, thanks for reading and for your response.

Curious: why were your grandparents immigrants, and I am not? Is it a legal technicality? Or was it the magnitude of their struggles?

How do you know I didn't struggle too? Perhaps our struggles were different.

>>Indians have always gotten byes when others could not

Who are the "others" here? I do agree that we Indians do well in the U.S. and other countries. But, so does anyone else who speaks English to an acceptable degree.

Yes, I made my choices. And I do acknowledge it here. And yes, I am privileged.

I don't think that diminishes my experience. Do you?
