What is the biggest misconception Indians have about western lifestyle?
ndia is always portrayed as a world of mysticism and magic, a place where people from the West come to find peace and meaning in life. Especially after hippies like The Beatles coming to Rishikesh in the 60s, most people abroad think all we do is pray and worship cows. There's so much more to India though, in terms of people, places and surroundings.
Here are a few common misconceptions that most firangs have about India.
1. India smells funny
There's reports all over about people stepping off the plane to India and being hit by the stench. That makes no sense. How can an entire COUNTRY smell bad? As like anywhere else, some areas smell funny, some don't (it's also because people pee outside a lot though). There's a wide range of aromas, and a lot of them lovely!
