Urbandictionary defines an ABCD as "an 'American Born Confused Desi,' which is a derogatory term used for Indians, Pakistanis, Bengladeshis (South Asians) who have grown up in the United States and who act 'American' (as stupid as that sounds)." But really, it doesn't have to be derogatory. We're fortunate enough to have the best of two worlds.
While there are plenty of desi meetup groups here in the the bay area, there seems to be a void for a legit ABCD group. So, if you're an American (or even Canadian) Born Confused and/or Classy Desi (or can pass for one), and you're interested in getting to know others like you, this group is for you! For the record, you don't necessarily have to be an ABCD to join, it just happens to be the theme of the group, and all are welcome.
Members will be able to suggest events, all of which will have a good turnout because there is a prerequisite that the suggested event has to be awesome. Whether it's meeting up for a party, watching a movie (doesn't necessarily have to be Bollywood) and hanging out for coffee or dinner, catching a comedy show, etc., Bay Area ABCDers will be holding it down and doing it big. Meetups will be announced to all members when an organizer announces them or if at least three members say they will attend a meetup suggested by another member.
