Why Indian Students are attacked abroad.....

I usually dont encourage mail forwards, but I found it amusing how this one has come out, because I have read the original Lee Iacocca version.

It was the first day of a school in USA and a new Indian student named
Chandrasekhar Subramanian entered the fourth grade.
The teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American History. Who said
'Give me Liberty, or give me Death'?"
She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrasekhar, who had his hand
up:? ' Patrick Henry, 1775' he said.
'Very good! Who said 'Government of the People, by the People, for the
People, shall not perish from the Earth?''
Again, no response except from Chandrasekhar. 'Abraham Lincoln, 1863' said
The teacher snapped at the class, 'Class, you should be ashamed.
Chandrasekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about our history than
you do.'
She heard a loud whisper: 'F ___ the Indians,'
'Who said that?' she demanded. Chandrasekhar put his hand up. 'General
Custer, 1862.'
At that point, a student in the back said, 'I'm gonna puke.'
The teacher glares around and asks 'All right! Now, who said that?' Again,
Chandrasekhar says, 'George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.'
Now with almost mob hysteria someone said 'You little shit. If you say
anything else, I'll kill you.' Chandrasekhar frantically yells at the top of
his voice, ' Michael Jackson to the child witnesses testifying against him,
The teacher fainted. And as the class gathered around the teacher on the
floor, someone said, 'Oh shit, we're screwed!' And Chandrasekhar said
quietly, 'Lehmann Brothers, November 4th, 2008'.

In the original version, it is a Japanese student who answers all the questions. The someone whispers F___ the Japanese. Teacher demands to know who said that. The answer..Lee Iacocca
* Lee Iacocca autobiography easily available in stores near you. Definitely worth a read.

It was one of the most unpredictable jokes, most jokes are predictable (except for the ones I make )

I'm not getting this joke with regards to the subject line. Indian students are attacked abroad because young chandrashekhar has great general knowledge? is this what the premise is?

I think the joke is implying that American kids beat up smart kids, and that Indians are smarter (well, in this case, more knowledgeable).

After reading the post, I concluded like this:
"Why Indian Students are attacked abroad.....", because their GK is good.
