Ever wonder why some people ( definitely not me. cos i think it's rude ) like to call the Indians ~ 'KELING'? So far i only got 2 explanations from 2 non-Indian friends :
Friend 1 :
There were a lot of Indian slaves years ago, and they were chained to the metal chain. So when they move, the banging chain will create the 'kling-klang'( keling ) sound.
Friend 2 :
It's from their culture ! classical Indian dance where dancers wear lots of wrist and ankle bell to create the 'kling-klang' ( keeling ) sound when they dance.
Anybody knows any other or the actual story of the name?
Try not to call them that name, cos it's not nice. Just like how the westerners call us Chinese " ching-chong-ching-chong' . :(
