I am a very proud Indian.
I am from Sikkim And I am often mistaken

to be a Chinese, Japanese or korean
So, what is it like to be mistaken for being a different ethnicity than I actually am?
“It is mixed. Sometimes it feels great.
Because some people are like;
‘Woah! You look like a korean actress, are you sure you aren't korean?'
you look like a doll, a Japanese doll!’.
And I swear, It feels good to hear them.
On the contrary, to be honest, it gets annoying. Like really, really annoying. Not to the ones approaching me for the first time, because obviously I'm aware that I don't look like a typical ‘Indian’, but the ones constantly nagging me with questions and assumptions and comments like;
Are you really Indian?
You look like Chinese
I can go on.
So, what do I do about them?
To the first time asker's, I explain.
That I look less Indian and more Chinese or whatever..as I have mongoloid features. And I cannot do anything about them. You know.. genetics.

    @Summer I mean ethnically, not nationally. The wiki also says mongoloids in Sikkim are related with ti be ts or Burmese

    I think you look 100% Indian. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't understand the most basic fact about India - its diversity. Many foreigners and even a few Indians fall in this category unfortunately.
