British Desi

The Official LJ Community for British Asians
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
Welcome to british_desi, the only community catered for us, the 'modern' British Asian - though if you're not from the UK you're still very much welcome to join. Keep to the standard community rules and I'm sure we'll all get on just fine.

Warning: Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and I respect that, but don't take the piss. Personal attacks, etc etc will not be tolerated and I'll just ban your ass.

PS I hope everyone who uses this community is mature enough to not need a set of rules laid out in writing for them. But saying that, keep posts relevent to british_desi [whatever that means] and use an lj-cut for those oh so large images.
