Why do Indian-Americans hate India and Indian culture?

Now, hold your horses, folks! The statement "Indian-Americans hate India and Indian culture" is a bit of a stretch, don't you think? From my experience, it's more about the struggles of balancing two cultures - the vibrancy of their Indian heritage with the American Dream they're living. Sure, there can be frustrations about certain social norms and bureaucracy back home, but hate is a strong word! Let's remember, Indian-Americans have the best of both worlds - Bollywood dance moves and baseball, curry and burgers! So, let's not jump to conclusions, shall we?
