    If growing Pubic Hair was an Olympic sport India would come first in every event! why don’t India have an Olympic football team? Because every time they get a corner they open a corner shop!  Patel’s and all the tony singhs will defiantly get their fair share of possession there, only if they could do the same in Kashmir!

In Asia or West … It’s only India vs China ….. China might be ahead ….But where are you pakistani’s Today ????  Your women are putting up stalls in New Delhi and Mumbai to sell Paki suits and garments …. We welcome them ….but you should be ashamed of it !!!!!!   Your people are being treated for various diseases and heart ailments in my country only because you pakistani’s waste a lot of time thinking about kashmir rather than studying !!!!!! Go to sleep
