Hi Krishna and welcome to TOTV. I had no intention of responding to this subject until I saw that you had, unfortunately, read comments at the bottom of the online newspaper article. Please do not let that make up your mind about TV, they are the dark underbelly of society that always rears its ugly head because they never have to show their faces or sign their names to their disgusting comments. These people are always there in every town in the world, not just here in the USA.

Like others, I have an Indian physician, mine is a brilliant hand Surgeon. A very educated and knowledgeable man who can converse on any subject. I am biased because my husband and I spent several years living in the UK where there is no bias shown towards Indians and there is an Indian Restaurant on every corner.

Krishna, be assured that if you chose to live here you will find your niche and enjoy a wonderful retirement.

Thank you Madelaine, I appreciate what you said. I’m a physician too. And I lived in the Uk for 3 years while I did my FRCS. Of course I’m an Anglophile and I love my Scotch and I love to play golf and tennis! I hunt, fish and I’m an avid biker. I used to be a member of an English club in Madison and we used to meet for dinner once a month and toast the queen with a glass of port after a wonderful steak dinner.

I’m looking forward to going down to the Villages and making new friends. I’m interested in golf, bicycling, tennis, women and scotch, but not particularly in that order!

Krishna

No. Not at all. You will find loud mouthed bigots mainly online but they are few and far between among the real people here in the Villages. We have been here since June of 2005 and I can only recall maybe under ten outright racist comments made by people in real life settings.

I don't see any problem here, real or imagined. Most people old enough to live here look for similarities, not differences. There are always a few pills everywhere and assuredly there are many envious people who do not live here who post on public blogs, trying always to hurt what they do not have.

We have been blessed in our life to know many people from different cultures. I hope the OP likes all of us. I think that as a group we Villagers are exceptionally nice.
