Every now and then when I tell people I’m from India, I see their faces and can just tell they have a lot of questions. Some good, some bad! So, I literally wait for them to get done with the questions and assumptions, so I can secretly laugh at their ignorance – in my head, of course. Happens with you too? I’m sure I’m not the only one! All of you must have experienced this at some point in your life :P So, here goes:

1. You’re from India? Then how is your English so good?

Yes, because you are the only one that speaks the language. Just FYI, India is a country with the second largest English speaking population in the world.

 2. DO YOU SPEAK INDIAN?

Do you speak American or Czechoslovakian or Canadian? Indian is not a language.

3. Life must be so tough in a third world country

Totally.

4. SO YOU MUST REALLY LOVE YOUR CURRIES!

Because we don’t have access to anything but curries.

5. So, you’re also going to have an arranged marriage right?

Some of us like to fall in love and surprise ourselves.

6. Eating non-spicy food must be so hard for you.

7. Do you use bleaching/fairness creams too?

Yes, we also eat some when we want to feel fair and lovely on the inside.

8. OMG! YOU MUST BE SO GOOD AT YOGA. I MEAN, INDIANS ARE KNOWN FOR YOGA

Yes, we’re known for Yoga but not all of us practice it (though we totally should because it’s awesome). But… if you want to think I’m mad flexible and can do things most people can’t, please, by all means, go ahead. I’m not going to stop you. ;) *evil grin*

9. HOW’S IT TRAVELLING TO PLACES ON ELEPHANTS?

NBD… Just like how it is travelling on Polar bears.

10. There’s an Indian in my class. Do you know him?

Um, yes, with a population larger than a few countries put together, we all know each other because it’s absolutely possible.

11. You people really must love your song and dance (aka Bollywood)

You will be surprised to know that not all Indians love typical Bollywood films. Everyone’s got their own opinion on this. And no, we don’t break into a dance if something significant happens. Just, no.

12. you guys worship cows? so does that mean all indians are vegetarians?

Do you relate with any of these? How often has this happened to you? We want to know. Drop us a comment below. :D
