Have any of you ever seen the movie “Blood Diamond?” It’s rather good.

At one point of the movie, Leonardo DiCaprio’s character brings up the letters “TIA” – standing for “This is Africa”—as a catch-all term for all of the things wrong with the continent and how it differs from its more “civilized” neighbors to the north.

I’m going to use “T.I.I” for “This is India” and use it in a more general way. Not just negatively, but also positively for things that I prefer over here in India. With any luck, I’ll be using TII fondly far more often than not.
