QUOTA OF QUOTES

''I've had a great relationship (with Indian-Americans). In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking." – Senator Joe Biden, a potential 2008 presidential candidate. (C-SPAN)

"I'll be sure to stop by his office when I get there. I won't be bringing coffee." — Maryland congressional candidate Raj Peter Bhakta, reacting to Biden's comment. (Washington Times)

"Things like this happen all the time in India. We had known the family a long time and we really wanted to help them." – Massachusetts doctor Vijai Pandey, who is suing his longtime friends Lallan and Kanti Giri for $200,000 for setting up his son with their niece, whom he claims is "ugly." The marriage was called off. (The Tribune, India)

"Even Brad Pitt wants to play gay now. Brokeback ? has really opened doors for LGBT (lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender) cinema." – Director Manan Katohora, who is working on a gay-themed film "When Kiran meets Karen." (India Post)

"Once I am in that post, I won't have time to be much of a writer and a columnist. These are different times and I don't think that I will have the luxury to be able to write. However, when I am done with the job, I might have great stories to tell." – Author Shashi Tharoor, nominated by India for the U.N. Secretary General post. (CNN-IBN)
