Re: Why did the USA leave weapons behind ? for Sheila
Sheila they'll be Muslim, it could be from any number of African countries and the colour was probably coincidental. The traditional way to eat food is with your right hand mixing the food with rice or chapatti, it could have been that the bride was brought up in a very British Indian family where knives and forks were the norm, and didn't feel comfortable using her fingers. Arranged marriages still go on but they are in decline, more and more make their own match and most don't want a partner from the parents home country as they rarely arrive with the skills to make a good living and the young people in this country are in a lot of cases are very well educated with good careers.
The Bangladeshi girl whose wedding we attended is a pharmacist and she married an architect. She flatly refused to marry anyone from Bangladesh. They lad she married is from a British Bangladeshi family like herself. Both good careers and a nice couple.
I was talking to a young Pakistani man and he said that a lot of parents and grandparents have the same customs they had when they left Pakistan. They are timelocked, its not unique, when Britain left India you had people who had been out of the UK for years and the culture shock since they left was hard and they too were time locked.
