Sir; I agree with Miles Kington (15 April): the word ”’ Asian” lumps together people from many diverse backgrounds and denies them their individuality. It is like calling a Frenchman”’ a European” which might be technically correct but is insensitive. I am an Indian and would like to be called just that though, since I come from Kenya, you would call me an Indian from Kenya.
