Did I mention Aishwarya Rai?
Well alright, I'll throw in the Taj Mahal, Gandhi family, Sikhs and Aishwarya Rai for good measure
There's obviously more, like the Mongol conquest of India, Alexander the Great turning back, Dutch colonies and trading with India etc, but hardly any Dutchman will know that, most can't be bothered to learn our own history let alone yours.
"Why should we learn about history, we're living today."
One of the dumber girls in my class once asked that during a history class. The only time I ever doubted Darwin ...
Why is it that every time I tell people i used to live in Aruba they give me a look as if they want to kill me?
Why are the Dutch ovens called Dutch ovens?
Heh. So you blame Germans for inventing such an evil practise and Americans for naming it wrong?
Hmm... ok. Smells bit fishy still
"Ministers agree to get tough on dual nationality, also for the Dutch"
[SIZE=1]Friday 02 March 2012[/SIZE]
http://www.dutchnews.nl/news/archive...et_tough_o.phpMinisters on Friday decided to press ahead with legislation aimed at reducing the number of people with dual nationality, despite widespread opposition.
The legislation will require everyone who becomes Dutch to give up their original nationality if legally possible. Dutch nationals who take a second nationality will also automatically lose their Dutch passports.
New Dutch nationals will also have a family income of at least the minimum wage and show that they have at least two years work experience or have some sort of professional qualification.
(nothing will change for those already in possession of dual nationality btw)
