As an American I was quite offended by Miss Rai's curt replies about American's and her parents. Quite a sweeping generalization.
And by the way, we Americans KNOW how Letterman got his job, by a beloved talk show host Johnny Carson who died 2 weeks ago. Not cute. She came off arrogant, obnoxious and DULL..

Ash was right about the dinner. It is true. We stay with our parents. They worked hard for there whole life to give comforts to us. Now how would it look if we have to give appointments to our parents or take appointments to have a simple dinner with them. A person cannot be that busy.

Finally someone found the performance of Ash fine. Normally she is crticised by all and sundry.Those who criticise are those who never can themselves be there in the show. I for one found Ash does perform well in her shows. Personal gestures and mannerisms are there for everyone and deserve to be overlooked and made the main issue. What is spoken and how is the criteris. Good that Ash has projected herslef well in this important TV appearance. After all, she repersents India whether she realises it or not.

Ash on Letterman...
by Pritha on Feb 10, 2005 02:44 AM

. Ash was really sharp yesterday.. she would make any Indian proud.. she actually sounded intelligent and witty..
Letterman sounded pretty dumb..
as he had really not done his research well.. in terms of mentioning that she was Ms. world and that she is a judge at the Cannes Film Festival... and the way she handled her modelling question was superb..

I am really impressed.. I have never been a great fan of hers till I saw Raincoat.. but last nite.. ok.. she is someone to reckon with from here
on out for sure...

aish on letterman
by jas on Feb 10, 2005 02:40 AM

saw it last night and i thought she handled herself fairly well, considering that letterman's got a very umm..."unique" sense of humor :) she didn't look as stunning as she did on 60 minutes...but she spoke and carried herself well. i wish she had dressed somewhat better (i mean, i know she's goin the western route and all...but she's a gorgeous INDIAN girl...and being and looking amazingly indian should be her unique asset in hollywood). also...they could've picked a better clip to show from the movie...i'm sure there were other far more interesting dialogues in the film that the one they chose. overall...good for aish. whether u like the girl or not, i think we should support her in her singlehanded attempt at challenging people's views on indians :)

Aish on Letterman

Yes Aish did well. However I was disappointed that
she did not use the occasion to mention a few Hollywood movies she has signed. And she should have answered Letterman's question about how young she was when she started her career. Everyone knows that many well known Hollywood stars and singers came into the
business at a very young age and the question from Letterman was a serious one and a legitimate one.

I waited up to watch Aishwariya on Letterman and hoped she would be more real. She was very disappointing. She should have been prepared for the oft repeated question on why she still lives with her parents instead she acted snooty and said we don't need appointments to see them. She may be beautiful but she definitely fails miserably as reprentative of India.She was literally babbling. That is why her interview was very short. She did not once talk nicely to Letterman or thank him for having her. She was either nervous or too full of herself

i just dont get it

So what if she appeared on some Litter-man show???
Why do you guys have to jumping around with joy when a white recogonizes us or even for that matter talks to an indian? I just dont get it...

All ur doing by publishing such crappy stuff is hinting in a subtle way that indians are inferior to whites...

Mr editor....grow up... im sure ur an educated person...time to put some sensible stuff on ur papers.

With all due respect

With all due respect to Aish's achievements, I felt she could've handled the face-off better. What is it with her and all the giggling? What do her PR people teach her before she gives an interview? Why does she intimidate her hosts so much whether on Letterman or on 60 minutes?

There's absolutely no need for her to go offensive. Stupid questions are asked not because the host doesn't know the answers but to gauge the response of the guest and also for the benefit of millions of different IQ levels.

It's natural to get nervous on live shows but Aish's defense mechanism seems to be (1) get away with meaningless giggling (2) intimidate hosts.

Letterman appearance was much better than 60 Minutes. Hopefully by another 10 appearances, Aish will be perfect.
