This ‘American Born Confused Desi’ is bewildered always.
‘American Born Confused Desi’ is a term used to refer to South Asian Americans born in the United States, in contrast to those who were born overseas and later settled in the USA. The term “confused” is used to describe the psychological state of many second-generation South Asian Americans who struggle to balance values and traditions taught at home with attitudes and practices that are more conducive to the majority white culture.
