They say the grass is always greener on the other side, but well, is it? When foreigners come to India in search of peace (which we have in abundance) they take obscure trails to places that they haven’t seen, since India is undeniably that one place in the world that entails almost everything.
And few things, well the ones that are mentioned below stun them to the point where they completely absolutely lose their mind.
1. No sidewalks
It baffles the pedestrian out of them. Aila, where should I walk?
2. The head wobble
Is that a “Yes” or “No” or…..ummm..”Don’t know”.
3. World class delicacies next to a slum
A posh colony or a famous restaurant next to slum.
4. Lodging prices are too good to be true
Sasta, sundar aur tikau. India’s the best!
5. That it’s God’s own country
This is solely because of the presence of deities on almost every corner.
6. Absolutely no public toilets in public for public
Most of you will agree with this one. Where’s the loo!
7. Ubiquitous trash chutes
Roads, beside houses, corner of the street, pavements, rivers etc.
8. Painted trucks
Haha, what a beauty. People in U.S. wish of they had this.
9. Indian style Chinese food is beyond brilliance
Because Indian version of Chinese food is winning the world.
10. Dung cakes on wall
11. The virginity taboo
Of course and it is not just for women but men too.
12. Heavy American accent
Which Americans aren’t aware of. . .
13. Cows, buffaloes, dogs and even elephants on the streets
We like to live amicably. What say?
14. Family bonds
The idea of a happy joint family baffles them.
15. Low hygiene standards
Hey, we’re improving. Hygiene is a personal habit, don’t paint my country wrong.
16. Roads between potholes
17. The success of arranged marriages
They just can’t make peace with the idea that we’ve been equally successful with arranged marriages.
18. Pinky loves Mahesh, written on walls everywhere
This needs to change. Immediately.
When everything is said and done, there is this one quote that sums up all.
Incredible India, you are a muse.
