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:
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.
Do you speak American or Czechoslovakian or Canadian? Indian is not a language.
Because we don’t have access to anything but curries.
Some of us like to fall in love and surprise ourselves.
Yes, we also eat some when we want to feel fair and lovely on the inside.
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*
NBD… Just like how it is travelling on Polar bears.
Um, yes, with a population larger than a few countries put together, we all know each other because it’s absolutely possible.
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.
Do you relate with any of these? How often has this happened to you? We want to know. Drop us a comment below. :D
