Are South Indian Dads in U.S. Developing a New Hobby – Shooting Young Children?

(inspired by what_if and an expanded version of our response)

What’s wrong with Indian Dadas oops Dads?

Horrific reports have come out recently that a growing number of Indian dads are going about raping their young daughters in India.

But what is less known is that there are disturbing incidents of Indian dads in the U.S. shooting young children.

The first shooting incident happened in October 2008 in the Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch. Karthik Rajaram shot and killed his three young sons (ages: 19, 12 and 7), wife and mother-in-law before finally turning the gun on himself.

Two days back, there came gruesome reports of another Indian dad in the U.S. playing Rambo on children. This time it was in the Silicon Valley town of Santa Clara. The Indian dad killed three children (ages: 11, 4 and 11-months).

Media reports suggest that in both incidents, the shooter was a South Indian. Must be something in the Cauvery water the South Indians drink (and fight over ad infinitum).

We don’t know about you. The next time we see a South Indian dad in the U.S., we’re going to try and stay as far as possible from these dadas oops dads.

Mera Bharat Mahan. God Bless America.

    aiyo aiyo.. you went through with the title.. me thought you was joking..

    Karthik Rajaram was an IITian.. we should probably stay away from IITians too. Aditya, shoo..

    one more! maybe you are right.. Responds:

    Scary. Kadavule kapathu (God, please help).

    At this rate, we’ll have to stay away from all desis. Must stop attending functions of the Indian association.

    keeps a check on the population count. You know, nature has its ways. Responds:

    Lo, here comes Malthus’ Great-grandson.

    To war and pestilence, we can now add other population checks like Indians Dads in the U.S. shooting their young.

    [Trash Talk] And your bog is SI ..South India..[Trash Talk]…oru roomla nee putitu veliyile varatha…anna.. payithiyakara punnaku [Trash Talk] madarasi [Trash Talk] mavane.. Responds:

    Annachi, you are mistaken.

    Our blog SI does not stand for South India or even Sports Illustrated 😉 but, the finest blog on All Things Indian and More.

    Go easy on the trash talk.

    Get rid of the trash.

    Write in English. This is not a Tamil blog. Use of the occasional Tamil phrase/word is fine provided you include the English translation.

    I do remember SI sarcastically commenting on my question ‘what do you think about the indian techies killing and suicide’… and SI told ‘we dont have a pattern here like farmers in india committing suicide’… funny to recollect that.. truly a pattern emerging here…

    I think they kill one in a family in a spur of emotion (angry in this case, or may be loss of job etc).. then realize that rest of your life in a place like ‘al catrez’ (along the american criminals tunnelling you AH for rest of your life) then decide to kill self… and thinks of the kids being orphans.. so killing them too and then commits suicide..

    Regarding the south indian part… yes interesting thing to argue.. What I have felt is, many of the south indians are too sensitive and emotional compared to the northies. Responds:

    Good memory, Joe.

    Its really sad.

    If we image that one or few of the kids killed, could probably have turned out to be a Atul Gawande, Padmasree Warrior, Narendra Tallapragada or Shivani Sud in the future, we can feel what a great loss it is to the Indian society in US.

    BTW, from your logic of “induction” shouldn’t your Headlines also scream “Indians shine in USA”, “Are Indians developing a new hobby – sending spacecrafts to Moon” etc, …
    Come on, give us a break from dad headlines….
    we too need to enjoy the Thengai, Mangai, Pattani Sundal. Responds:

    Who says we only have Indian Dads Raping Daughters or Indian Dads Shooting Children headlines?

    Look at all the nice headlines below. Don’t they warm the cockles of your heart?

    Is there a gun control law in the U.S.? there seem to be too many ‘shootings’ in recent years, in universities and all…..BTW, my laptop is Acer too…cheapest I could find …lol Responds:

    1. You write: Is there a gun control law in the U.S.?

    God, no. There are only laws against Gun Control. No kidding.

    The Republicans and their buddies, the NRA (National Rifle Association) bring up all kinds of roadblocks (including the constitution) to prevent any kind of sensible gun control laws from being passed.

    In Michigan, a six-year-old boy accidentally shot his classmate a few years back. Before that, there was the Columbine massacre in 1999.

    2. You write: there seem to be too many ‘shootings’ in recent years, in universities and all…..

    It’s gonna get worse. Much worse because of the pauperization of the country. Parts of the U.S. are turning into Africa or backward regions of India. For instance, Detroit (for example) and parts of New Orleans are complete disasters.

    3. Acer machines are good. We have two. Cheap too. 🙂

    4. We’re planning to buy a gun. But on second thoughts, we think South Indians in the U.S. will have a hard time buying a gun. Maybe, we’ll change our name to Debendu Bhattacharya. 😉

    You should tell us bro….you seem to be one of the frustrated south indians (or an ex-south indian) living in the states…..why so much anger!?

    Your posts seem to reflect hate,anger and frustration…take a chill pill.

    Then again, spewing your hatred on a blog (with the occasional light hearted post) could be quite threapeutic and may well be the reason why you havent shot those around you yet (or have you?!?!)…the next time you see an South Indian dad in the U.S., please help the poor guy by starting a blog for him as well. Hopefully with a tagline as misleading as yours!

    Btw..wonderful to see so many partially “[deleted] and [trash talk]” comments….kudos on taking your moderation (Read “censorship”) to the next juvenile level. Responds:

    1. You write: wonderful to see so many partially “[deleted] and [trash talk]” comments….kudos on taking your moderation (Read “censorship”) to the next juvenile level

    Would you like us to redirect all the hateful/racist phrases (against us, other commenters, movie stars….), death-threats, dirty insults to parents et al to your e-mail address.

    Maybe, you can wank off on all the slime and filth in those comments. Is that really how you come?

    2. You write: why you havent shot those around you yet (or have you?!?!)…

    Are you offering yourself as a target? 🙂 No, thanks.

    3. You write above: the next time you see an South Indian dad in the U.S., please help the poor guy by starting a blog for him as well.

    Funny. 🙂
