How do Poles think/ relate to India... culturally and economically?

Poles love Tandoori Krakowska and also Kapusta Paneer...Economically speaking, they are quite cheap, like Indians.

CHeap?!?!?!? Did you see how much food costs... and how many ingredients it takes to make Indian food in a traditional manner?!
But I meant Polish-Indian bilateral trade and so-forth..

I am a 'plastic Pole' so, of course, my opinion does not count with the home grown geniuses on this forum...In any case, most of them would have no clue as to your question.

In fact, the Indian Mittal family is the owner of three very large steel mills in Poland, including this one in Nowy Huta:

The Mittals are partners with the Rothschild family...So, you already have economic interchange going on at a big level.

ss

BTW, the Mittals are heavily invested in Northern Europe, owning steel plants, shares in utilities and such...I think their investment is good as they have introduced modern techniques in plants were the production capability surely needed updating.

As far as other trade, import-export, I would imagine this would be on a much smaller scale...What does India export in the way of commodities nowadays?

A group of Indian guys live in an apartment block near my house. They work for Comarch, an international software house and systems integrator based in Kraków. They are well behaved, cultural people and good workers, as I heard.

I have nothing against Indians except their spoken English is hard to understand.

I think the image is positive. I think they are less racist and more friendly than other exotic races. They are also better at science than some other exotic race assosiated with Poland.

They have good music ...

I have some friends from India, and they are keen on education, plus they try and integrate well. I have heard in West Europe, UK, they do not integrate as well. But in Poland they do somehow ... I dunno how?

However, the Indians here, the students mostly, are mostly on a process to becoming Polonized :), with their children being half Polish and their spouses being Pole.

They usually start businesses, food, or other service related industries.

I would include Bangladesh people in the same group and you are previously (historically) same people, right?

I have only befriended the good folks, if any of them are being a pain here, I am not aware but then it is not my business (government will handle).

Beggars, not same people. Islamic terrorists. Better read some history and geography.

Most don't care to see any difference when this far away from that area. It's the same way where all Slavs/Eastern Europeans are called Polish in England.

Lodz,even the "Indians" historically are not the same peoples,the only historic link most of the subcontinent shares is a history of being "united" under various invaders from the Muhgals to the Portugese to the British Raj......its a fascinating part of the world though lodz so you will enjoy researching this stuff yourself :)

I have heard in West Europe, UK, they do not integrate as well.

Yes,and I have heard that the Moon is made from Chedder Cheese............
Indians dont integrate in the UK,lmao :) cant wait to tell that one in the office :)

Funny thing is though,I can tell you exactly how it will pan out in Poland,coz its happened here in the UK;
At first a few young get up and go types will arrive,mostly single men with good prospects. These will be seen less as some "threat" and more as a curiosity,some locals will find the "exotic" nature attractive and many will marry local girls. Same here in the late 19th early 20th century. Over time though Ranjit Singhski's second cousin from Mumbai will be offered a job in the family buisness,he will arrive in Torun say with his wife and kids,the kids will be engaged to their cousins back in india,when old enough those indian cousins will come to Poland to marry their Polish/Indian cousins..............etc etc

Now, Im neutral on that scenario,but,the bigots can make a case out of it undoubtedly.

Indians are indeed very diverse, but it is not true that the sub-continent has only been united under various foriegn invaders. The Mauryan Empire was most certainly indigenous.

Polski moc is always going on about how Indians and Poles are genetically linked through the R1a gene that is shared between the people.

Or did I misunderstand what he meant?

You understood it and it is true, it does seem to be real phsyical evidence for the truth of Marija Gimbutas's Kurgan hypothesis.

Ah, I was having a dig at Polskimoc, he has this idea of the "Super-race" being Polish and he knows that Indians, among many others, share the R1a gene but he "conveniently" leaves this out of "his" theory and just focuses on how Poles are the "master-race" of Europe, showing the same small section of the R1a map that they use on the stormfront forum (a hate forum), I only know this from when I do some background checks on what people type here sometimes.

But it is something Indians and Poles share, so I thought it two for one, a dig at an eejit and on topic :)

Interesting,will give them a google. i was recently fascinated to discover there were Indian Hindu merchants in Ancient Rome...makes ya think :)

and the Polish Lithuanian common wealth....................lithuanian is the closest living language to Sanskrit ............bizzarly enough....

re all the R101 genome helibactor nonsense......we are all linked by something far simpler,being the same friggin species on the same tiny rock in the same vast universe :)

I was told the same thing in Lithuania and I still don't believe it.
Any links?

Lithuanian still retains many of the original features of the nominal morphology found in the common ancestors of the Indo-European languages like Sanskrit and Latin, and has therefore been the focus of much study in the area of Indo-European linguistics. Studies in the field of comparative linguistics have shown it to be the most conservative living Indo-European language.[2][3]

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithuanian_language#History

Hmmm... no exactly what Lithuanians say but...

the stormfront forum (a hate forum),

I copied, pasted, and googled something PolskiMoc said on this forum and it showed stormfront and I read a bit of the Neo-Nazi crowd there insulting Polski-Moc for his "Poles are the master-race" theory which didn't seem to be going over well as all his fellow posters were dead set on recognizing Germanics for this imaginary distinction. If the Kurgan hypothesis is true it was merely due to an accident of history that somewhere, perhaps in the Pontic Steppes, someone figured out how to get horses to pull wheeled vehicles and this gave these people a military advantage which they used to spread out. From then on it has been in good measure equestrion innovations, such as the Avar's stirrup, that have enabled wave after wave of similar peoples to do the same thing in subsequent ages, but none of these peoples has inherently been a master race because there is just one human race.

Have you read Jared Diamond's books Guns, Germs and Steel?
Interesting book, i think you'd like it.

Jared Diamond

I am in complete agreement with his writings on the subject of the Kurgan hypothesis.

So you'll be familiar with the writings of Kortlandt - and most intriguingly, Krell. Do you favour the diffusionist theory? I find it compelling.

Poles-Indians; inter-continental relations



I intend to travel to poland and was just looking at a few comments made by our european friends, regarding physical appearences of Indians (male/female) on this forum.Fortunately I am not surprised because humans are generally xenophobic.. us and them. Some comments were as if, from the nazi era who believed in evolutionary biology of super and sub humans.( reference to IQ etc).

No wonder the state of Greece is being bailed out repeatedly by brussels with all the superhuman IQ of its intelligent people.
As they say Beauty lies in the eye of the be holder.
I believe some guys are happy pumping muscles than brain.
good luck!

You're certainly welcome to participate by joining in with already existing discussions, only that rambling remarks might be interpreted by some members as trolling:-)

Hope you understand.
