    I agree with you that Racism is everywhere but that is the beauty of discrimination. If you are hated by one than loved by another. I had been to South India, there is discrimination on the basis of region yet few meet with utter happiness.

      Hi Rahul, that’s one way of looking at things, but I don’t really agree with it like I mentioned in the article. I know it’s a long stretch but why should someone be loved just by one group of people? People are people and if it wasn’t for politics or religion, people wouldn’t even feel close to what is called “their own kind”.
      Cheers 🙂

    Loved your write up. I admire you for living in India it’s something I plan to do and there are not many people who can say they would. I can relate to everything you said! Keep travelling and inspiring others it’s a passion that most seek but don’t follow.

    Oh man. You are simply great. From what I gauge, you have an attitude to look towards positive side of things… And everything you said, sadly, even we Indians aren’t experiencing. All the present generation (especially upper middle class kids) have a tendency to despise anything Indian… Just few experiences myself which are inexplicable…
    Loved reading your article
    Why were you in India though??

      Hi Aman, thank you for your comment.
      Well, yes: it’s true, I do have an attitude of looking towards the positive side of things.
      You are right, unfortunately, I have met a lot of Indians that despise anything related to India but there are also some great young people that love and are proud of their country. And they have absolutely every right to do so.
      I initially went to India on a student internship but I found a job and stayed much longer than planned.

    Oh my, I should write a post with the same topic. But my experience in India wasn’t positive at all, I wasn’t able to adapt and embrace the chaos. I see the beauty of India now, after years.

      Thank you for the comment, Anita. Many people actually share your experience and sure there are many things I don’t like about India either. But there are even more things that I love 🙂

    India’s organised chaos is a thing to behold. Shame about the racism though, I guess it will always be present unfortunately. Would love to visit one day, thanks for the insight

    I liked your post and I understand the need to come in with an open mind when you land in India. It is a very different country and harbors 1.2 billion people. The diversity is endless, even in the most basic thought processes. Everyone in India applies their minds to everything which is why nothing gets done here. 🙂 I feel India is a wild animal still waiting to get reined in. And it is important to understand its background before traveling to India or to any place for that matter.

      Thank you for your comment, Soumya- I really appreciate it. I agree with you about diversity being endless and why things don’t get done but these are some of the things that make India what it is and that’s why I love it 🙂

    Great lessons in travel. India is one of the countries in our scope should we have the chance to travel abroad. The history and culture there is rich and diverse.

    I guess your tips are also applicable in any countriee in Asia. Asia is very different than the West, and many needs total adjustments.

    Such a beautiful perspective of looking at a country like India – a country where chaos is very much a part of life as is the existence of peace and harmony. I loved reading each and every point of yours and it goes to show not only your love for the country and its people but also how you, yourself have changed ever since you landed up here. Travel transforms us in ways we can never imagine. The coffee jugaad machine made me smile. All the best for your journey!

    Written very well. It reflects how well you understood the people and embraced the indian culture which is really difficult for someone from the west. Glad that you chose to see things differently and infact picked up good things to write about. Wish you all the best in your journey of exploring new places and keep sharing your wisdom👍
