Have you ever tried to imagine about our country with an eye of a foreigner? Have you ever admired how India looks like to the rest of the world? Many countries still think that All Indians are very poor but it is not true at all.
Check Out These Weird Misconception Foreigners keep In Their Mind About India and Indians
1. They Think All Indians Are Brown
A country which is badly obsessed with fair skin, it’s offensive to hear this from foreigners about them. Hope, they could see how people with nearly all kinds of complexion happily wallow here.
2. That we speak a language called ‘Indian’
Well, Let me clear here first that ‘Indian’ is not a language and India has 22 official languages and around 1652 mother tongues!
3. Only One kind of marriage we’ve “Arranged marriage”
It’s true to some extent that brazenly romancing and dating could never be a dining table topic for us and some of us may have to go through a ton of melodrama to cajole our parents. But India does have its share of love marriages, with everybody’s blessings of course.
4. That all Indians smell like curry!
Like seriously? Perhaps they don’t know that many of us don’t even have our breakfast till we take a bath.
5. That Indians don’t know English
Like Priyanka said, about 10% of India’s population i.e., around 125 million people speak English. And the number accounts for the whole population of many countries.
6. That we’ve snake charmers roaming around
While it surely is a certified profession, we don’t have snake charmers all over the pavements of India. Maybe, they need to stop taking those Indiana Jones movies and cartoon illustrations too seriously.
7. That spoons and forks are alien to us
Just because we love to grace our maa ke hath ka khana with our own hands, doesn’t mean we lack spoons in our cutlery set. If you ever hear that coming from your Videshi friend, ask them to eat panipuri with a fork and a knife.
8. That we dance around trees or on the streets in real life
Thanks to our Bollywood movies, they think that we actually start dancing on the streets all of a sudden while the passers-by follow us matching our steps. Wish we could tell them that not everything shown in films has something to do with the reality!
