They're also incredibly conservative, so don't be surprised if she calls you 'Anjali' on the phone a couple of times just to let 'em know you're talking to a girl-friend.

Say no more if you have an ex you want to mess with or parents who recently cut you off; we'll take care of it. We'll prank call whoever has been messing with you and pretend to be an Indian take-out restaurant with our legit-sounding accents. Does your wedding involve the groom riding in on an elephant?
