Indian-a strikes

As if Kaavya Vishwanathan's inspired taking off on Megan McAfferty's works wasn't enough, another Indian in the US has caught the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Vikram Buddhi, an Indian student of the Purdue University has been arrested for posting internet messages urging Iraqis to kill the US President. He will face trial on June 26.

Buddhi wrote in an online message board that he wanted to kill George Bush, Laura Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld. He also wrote calling on his readers to bomb the United States, kill all Republicans, and rape and mutilate white women.

The question that's bothering me now is: What was he thinking?
