Indian-American Child Having Difficulty Finding Bicycle License Plate With His Name On It
HAYWARD, CA— Dinesh Parekh, 9, continues to struggle to find a bicycle license plate with his name on it, the Indian-American child reported Monday. "This is the third store I've checked today," said a dejected Parekh, exiting a Toys "R" Us near his Hayward home. "Derrick, Diane, Dillon and Dylan, Dirk... no Dinesh." Parekh, who has pedaled his brand-new Schwinn to more than a dozen stores during his three-week search, said he plans to ask his mother to drive him to the KB Toys in San Leandro next weekend.

I feel for you Dinesh.

I was always curious, i guess it is obvious, but why can't there be multicultural name license plates for kids bikes. For every Dinesh, there is probably an Abdul, Sergei, and Shanequa that want one for their bike.
