1. Noun; A citizen of India living abroad
2. Noun; A hopeful, naive, wide-eyed medical or engineering student or professional from India that became a U.S. citizen or is in the process of becoming a citizen by way of abusing their student or work (H1B) visa privledges.
Tend to think they are superior intellectual beings (and project this onto random passers-by) while secretly harboring deep feelings of inferiority because they only live in their heads and are one-dimensional. Are used to competing intellectually in India because it's overcrowded and carry this mentality with them when to U.S. educational institutions or the workplace.
Funnel themselves into medical or engineering professions. Indians that migrate to the U.S. from India tend to be at the top of their class in India so this is all americans see. Typically work at large corporations so they can get H1B Visa sponsorship while "the man" sticks it to them financially by low-balling their salary and/or benefits. This is a win-win situation because "the man" has the Indian employee by the balls and can underpay him as a result and the H1B Indian wins because he landed a job in a high-tech industry. Hence, he can now call home and brag and this drastically increases his chances of securing and marrying an Indian woman who will be shipped to him because he has now "made it" but he doesn't realize that he was being (and is still being) manipulated and abused by "the man".
Man, at work I saw this Indian walking down the hall with his head bent forward slightly so that he could absorb and process more information from the environment with his intellectually superior brain.
