You should visit some African Countries for comparison. India is having
it so good.
An ambassador makes the most of what is available to him/her.

You are very upset but don't let your emotions colour your response.
When someone questions my authenticity, I am compelled to prove myself
beyond doubt. You should understand ... I've been humiliated at
airports for being Nigerian. Why? Nigerians are popular for fraud. So
should I blow steam when security decides to perform an extensive check
on me just because I'm different? That won't get me anywhere. If you
are not doing it for "name" or "fame" then laugh it off and prove
yourself. Impress your mentor. You are NOT licking his boots ... you
are showing who you are: An asset!.
I am not emotional, just wanted to mention the attitude. Without
knowing the person and what he is upto, making such kind of statement
is ridiculous and childish.
I dont want to prove to anybody with these kind of attitude, just
ignoring them. I feel like I have applied US visa from a terrorist
Anyway 6 months is a long wait. Its like waiting for the next
... that is not an easy test.
