I should have checked on Google and saved myself the effort, but I went 
to school or had friends with people who emmigrated from most of those 
countries.  That's the nice thing about the Commonwealth-ish countries:  
everyone learns the words to God Save the Queen (catchy tune, actually), 
begins their life in an educational institution where the dress code 
mandates a blue blazer with insignia, and where most everyone around you 
is a really strange foreigner who's ... just like you.  Or, at the very 
least, drinks the same beer.

That said, the original poster no doubt had some issues.  Given the 
current state of the Indian economy, he should be glad the French or 
worse, the Dutch, hadn't colonised his country.
