There are seven hundred and eighty different languages in India. And, I couldn't begin to determine the origin of Mindy Kaling's last name. Fun fact about comedienne Mindy Kaling is that she uses her middle name (Mindy) instead of her first name Vera and that the reason for the change in her last name was that people were unable to pronounce it.
Your probably saying to yourself. Where do I know this Mindy Kaling from? Who is this beautiful goddess who is assaulting my eyeballs. She was one of the many stars of The Office. Not the British one, but the American one.
I never really got into this show. I've never been a huge fan of Ricky Gervais or his style of comedy. Although, he certainly has his moments. Steve Carell also doesn't do it for me. I feel like I'm attacking a national treasure. The short point I'm attempting to make is that I didn't watch The Office. However, my fave Mindy Kaling was in it and I think that's really exciting.
The true jewel in Mindy Kaling's crown is her hit sitcom The Mindy Project. What originally spurred me to write about Mindy was Fox's cancellation of The Mindy Project. I found out about this during exam week at my school. I was expected to study, while knowing my favorite show was canceled. Although, to be fair I was never home to actually watch it when it was on.
I've actually written a Friday Favorites on this TV show. I'm obsessed with it. Not just because Mindy is me, but because it's straight up solid humor. I just enjoy it as quality entertainment. It's a sitcom with some substance. I am about that life.
Now, The Mindy Project was canceled. However, Hulu has picked it up for a fourth season. This shows to me that Mindy Kaling is a shrewd business woman that she was on top of this cancellation and that she found a way to continue her show. It reminds me of when Cougar Town was cancelled and picked up by TBS. What else could explain it's continued presence on TV besides good a solid business head of the one people behind it?
Everyone loves some Vera Mindy Chokalingam in their life. Am I right?
