Why is My Accent Funny to You?

India is a vast land of diversity. Instead of portraying the colours, sparkle, splendour and vivacity of India, the accent of the Indians are made fun of in the media.

Hey guys, my name is Pritika and I was born and brought up in India. Yes, I have an Indian accent but it is not the stereotypical and comedic one you hear in the western media. Often, the plethora of cultures present in India goes on unnoticed. Their accent is also made fun of quite often.
