Dilbert Dilbert

If you are desi and reading this blog, then you probably have heard the bollywood song Dilbar Dilbart. Well, it turns out, that perhaps the writers of the comic strip Dilbert, may have heard the tune as well. Ok, maybe not, but they have introduced an Indian character in their comic strip, Asok, who hails from the famous Indian Institute of Technology.

You can check out the cartoon here, and read Asok's bio here.

Thanks to SAJA for this entry. There is a constant discussion on the SAJA list about what constitutes Desi's making it into the mainstream in America. Some have said when a Desi actor/actress gets to host SNL, but I don't know, I think a comic strip is a pretty good indicator.
