4. Leo Labo what are you talking about?

I suppose this means that you did NOT know that the Jewish Community of India is amongst the most ancient in the world. Some of its members arrived in India during the time of the Kingdom of Judah and others are members of the 10 lost tribes of Israel.
In India's historical records they are listed as one of the first foreign religions. India is a religiously tolerant country and so Jews in India have always enjoyed a safe and secure status.
Really and truly India's Jewry for a HUGE part of it's history has absolutely nothing to do with Chabad...in fact their existance predates Chabad by several thousand years.
There you go Leo Labo...now you can carry on researching and learn more about the rich tradition of Indian Jewry.

Post 1945 to the early 60s Bombay was home to a rich and diverse mix of Jews..from Bene Israelis, Cochini Jews, Baghdadi Jews and Ashkenazi refugees from Europe

The Indian National Anthem written and composed by Rabindranath Tagore is surely one of the finest pieces of poetry and music ever produced
Jan Gana Mana
Goes as follows
Oh! the ruler of the minds of people, Victory be to You,
Dispenser of the destiny of India!
Punjab, Sindhu, Gujarat, Maharashtra,
Dravid (South India), Orissa, and Bengal,
The Vindhya, the Himalayas, the Yamuna, the Ganges,
And the oceans with foaming waves all around.
Wake up listening to Your auspicious name,
Ask for Your auspicious blessings,
And sing to Your glorious victory.
Oh! You who impart well being to the people,
Victory be to You, dispenser of the destiny of India!
Victory, victory, victory to You!

Spoken Hindi is actually a relatively easy language to get to grips with..how did Netanyahu fair? Not sure about a word? Just intersperce with a sprinkling of english words with your Hindi vernacular and you will get by!
