    North Indian

    There is no race called Indian. Nor was there any country called India in the past, other than just a subcontinent of several nations and countries, united by force by Ashoka and later the Mughals and carried over by the British. Tamil nations and Punjabi nations are two different nations, culturally, linguistically and in all aspects If a Punjabi went to Tamil Nadu, he would be naturally treated as a foreigner thanks to his physical features and language and culture. So nothing you can do about it, just accept that Indian is an artificial identity created by the British. The word Indian comes from Indus river, it was expanded to include all those east of Indus, which was wrong. Tamils are a seperate nation unto itself. the identity should be tied to your language and ethnic group. Tamil Malaysians and Punjbi Malaysians and gujarati Malaysians are different races entirely. If they want, they can call themselves South Asian Malaysians, rather than “Indian”. The word Indian should be used only for citizens of republic of india, later of india disintegrates, then each state has its own citizenship. accept the truth and move on, instead of forcing all to accept one identity, there is no such thing.
