Sandip ROy of Pacific News Service is going ga ga over Indians in The Matrix. In A True ‘Revolution’: Indian Americans Enter the Matrix he writes:
bq. Move over, Neo. We’ve seen the signs for years: Indian American authors on bookshelves, Hindu gods on tote bags, snippets of sitar on the radio. But with the appearance of a South Asian in the Hollywood blockbuster “The Matrix Revolutions,” a new era has begun. This is not your parent’s sitar generation. That was just fizzless karma cola in comparison. This time we Indians take center stage, instead of just handing our sitars over to the Beatles to twang.
Roy goes on and on about Jhumpa Lahiri, Monsoon Wedding, Bend It Like Beckham and blah blah blah! Yeah he has all the relevant information but it barely makes me spill my morning coffee!
