Yes, we are awesome. We cross roads without looking both ways, we honk incessantly even when we are stuck in traffic jams, we believe in crores of Gods and suddenly acquire a foreign accent after a trip abroad but we are, without doubt, the warmest, most enterprising people around.
Here are some characteristic traits that define the‘India’ in all Indians.
Sports? You mean Cricket?
We all, at one point in our lives, have said ‘Sachin is God’. We’re pretty sure when someone says sports, you can’t help but think cricket.
The Yes Nod And The No Nod Are N-oddly The Same
We almost saw you gasp. Please calm down, you know it’s true.
The way we nod our heads to say yes and no – is the same. We’d all make excellent spies. Also, since most of us hate refusing a request, this gesture is our passive aggressive way of placating those making said request.
Everything Takes Two Minutes
We function according to Indian Standard Time! Anything between an estimation of 2 minutes to 2 hours would mean that you should ideally come back after two weeks.
All The Cuisines ‘Indianize’ Themselves
MASALA. EVERYTHING NEEDS MASALA. WE LOVE MASALA.
MASAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALAAAAA. *TEARS OF JOY*
Par Aap Kitne Mein Dooge?
Bhai, we love a bargain. Deal with it. The MRP on products is for amateurs and foreigners. Sahi, sahi lagaoge toh baat karenge, bro.
Move Over Blair, Karma Is The Ultimate B****
We believe in karma, especially when things don’t work out for us. If anything goes wrong, blame it on karma!
Jugaad Is How We Roll. Jugaad and Fortuners. \m/
If we had a penny for every time we heard, “Kuch jugaad ho jaega”, we wouldn’t be writing this list. Next time you are in trouble, find the nearest Indian!
Bring Them Whistles And Tears
No matter where we come from, whistling during an item number and crying during an emotional scene is a must!
Khaane Mein Kya Hai
We are a social people essentially because of free food. There is no other explanation for why we would get dressed up and socialize with people we haven’t seen since before we were potty trained.
Shaadi Kab Kar Rahe Ho?
We all have a love hate relationship with weddings, while we have no particular interest in getting hitched, we cannot stop ourselves for asking people variations of “Shaadi Kab Hai”.
We also love abusing like sailors, dancing with reckless abandon and thrusting our pelvis!
