I'm an RNI, not an NRI
You know, people who moved out to stay in Australia, US, UK etc are termed as NRI = Non Resident Indians. I mean these people are usually viewed by the people here as like "higher class" as, first of all, the earn more, and are like exposed to the world etc.
Even then ladies families look for grooms to marry their daughters to, NRIs are like preferred.
And when these NRIs come back to this place to visit their families etc, they are like a locally made product that's undergone some transformation, well, especially if you have a picture of yourself standing in front of the Statue of Liberty for example.
It was often even heard that dowry prices are increased 2-3 times when they see that the groom is taking a picture of some exotic location or beside a good car, like a Mercedes.
Well, that's the way it works here.
So the other day just to make a bo liao joke out of it, I was telling someone, ok, I'm not a NRI. Instead I am a RNI = Resident Non Indian.
HUH? Not very funny right ? Never mind, go and sleep liao, 3am here.
