Who is an Indian?

I got an sms from SBI card, mentioning some new offer. It read “25 % cash back on all Indian Flights till Sept”.

As I am a frequent flier thanks to the low cost airlines, I thought of thanking myself for choosing an SBI card over Citibank and went ahead to the site to book my tickets.

After selecting the Friday evening Indigo flight and just before making the payment, I was wondering why there is no mention of this cashback offer. I thought of reading the sms again.. That is when it stuck me.. “.. all INDIAN flights…” what was wrong with “Indian Airlines”… why should they change it to INDIAN, is Jet Airways Pakistani!

With the 25% off, an Indian ticket was cheaper than the Indigo but when I thought about my previous experience with flying Indian, I decided it is better to be an Indigo-an rather than an Indian…
