Mainland Indians (the Hindi belt) have the tendency to mock, criticise,to slur racist comments against NE people.They don't even know the geography of India and where NE is.Bcoz of their mangolite feature they are the targets for attacks and verbal abuse.Coming to south India they call all South Indians Saala Madrasi a derogatory form.In all aspects N E people and south Indians are more educated,well mannered, disciplined.

For 80% of the people in the central region of India words like love, respect, society, etc does not exist beyond their own family and benefits and sometimes not even in their families itself. Their are some good people both literate and illiterate but most of them are just like their street bitches with no shame, no respect, no love. They have a human body but a soul of a monster.
