Indians are an academically advanced people who when given the opportunity will often exceed others in any given area of expertise. They are also known for their spicy foods and curries, and inventing the idea of '0' before the Mayans. Hinduism, the main religion, is the one of the oldest surviving religions in the world and the most tolerant of other religions.

By definition it should refer to those who are from or trace their ancestry to India, but is also commonly used in the U.S. and Canada to refer to indigenous/native peoples of North America.

The term is commonly thought to have begun with the misconception by Christopher Columbus that the Caribbean islands were the islands of the Indian Ocean (known to Europeans as the Indies) which he had hoped to reach by sailing west across the Atlantic. Even though Columbus’ mistake was soon recognized, the name stuck and for centuries the native people of the Americans were collectively called Indians.

American Indian is the most common and politically correct modern term for indigenous American peoples, particularly in legal/official language. “Indian” or “Indian American” can connote people from or who trace their heritage to India, however "Indian" is still widely used to refer to natives, particularly in contexts where it is unlikely to be confused with people from India. In general, native people prefer the term American Indian to Native American, though the latter is in common use and the terms are basically interchangeable. “Indian” is a rather collective term that disregards the cultural/geographical diversity of the peoples it refers to, thus the best descriptor is to refer to specific tribes by their tribe name (e.g. “he is Cherokee”).

In Canada, where East Indians outnumber those of aboriginal ancestry, the term First Nation is commonly used.

Definition is for asian indian (am one myself). Stereotypes include but are not limited to-

1. indians smell. obvious where this comes from, we do generally eat spicy food but im pretty sure that we dont smell of it 24/7.

2. indians have a superiority complex. im being totally objective here; yes some of us do. i dont but my parents are forever being annoying by comparing other things unfavourably to indian things. i hate this. objectivity is important. but wth i have to put up with it because theyre mad.

3. we're intelligent. i dont know about the actual genetic value of this stereotype but a lot, and i mean A LOT of emphasis is placed on education within indian teenagers. where i live in england, if i study a lot my british friends would say 'omg you've like studied all day! you need to take a break' if i did the same thing in india, my indian friends would probably say 'omg is that all youve done? how much do you think youre gonna get on the test? are you confident that that much studying is enough?' so yeah it can get pretty heavy.

IMO you cant really stereotype a country with over 1 billion people. theres lots of different people, everyone is unique and yeah just bear that in mind not only for indians, but for ANY racial/social stereotype.
1. 'dude you eat curry all the time, you stink' -ignorant loser

'well at least i have deodorant. unfortunately there is no cure for stupid people yet. though i hear they're doing research on it in india' -indian person

2. 'okay so britain might be developed but obviously india is much better' - MY DAD >.<

'hmm. so although britain has little to no poverty, an excellent welfare state, and effective law enforcement policies, it is still somehow worse than india which is in still in stage 2 development? am i the only one who sees the flaw in this argument?' - me

3. 'you know raj got 98% in maths last week?' -some guy

'wow.. his parents must have given him hell for that' - indian empathiser

'why? thats an awesome score, he only misplaced a decimal point' - some guy

'you clearly know nothing about indian/asian parents' - indian empathiser *shakes head sadly*
