Here is another great clip from the BBC's Goodness Gracious Me episode Typical Asian Parents. What Indian child can't relate to this on some level? This episode reminds me of a week I spent in the 7th grade trying to convince my parents to let me play the bassoon. My parents were convinced this would lead to me being one of those sleepy haired guys wearing Scottish outfits playing for weddings in Punjab. Ultimately they relented, which is a good thing, since I would say a good chunk of my work ethic and ability to focus came from my early music instructors.
