You too! The same person kept calling me I asked them politely three times to stop by the fourth time I had enough(lol) my temper got the best of me,(I exploded) I won't say what I told this person but I spent a good two minutes chewing on them until I'm sure this person wanted to crawl into a hole. The good part is I never received another call.

When i pick up the phone now and hear a Indian accent i will scream "SCAM" at them and they hang up immediately. Half the time its the same biatch, i recognize her voice from the first second.

The restrooms in such cases also go down the drain, as for some reason most of them have troubles directing urine into the proper hole.
I also noticed that most of them do not wash their hands after restrooms, yet like to shake hands - beware.

I value honesty in people the most - and this is where Indian culture has serious issues, they seem to feel that it's OK lying if it benefits them, absolutely openly, and see no shame in it. Disgusting.
There was a 20/20 report on Indian pharma companies in India manufacturing fake medicines a few years back. They caught many of the owners lie straight faced when they were confronted by the investigative reporters....

The food is good.
As for the people, my experience has been positive so far.

As someone of mixed african heritage I would say that indians are the most racist, sexist, colorists, casteists, intolerant, insecure people in the world. Just my opinion, take it as you will

racism against african students

How India can stem the rising scourge of racism against Africans



racism against north easterners/ mongoloids

India's northeast speaks out against racism - Al Jazeera English



discrimination against dalits and muslim minorities

I think India has a serious problem with hygiene, so much so that I cancelled a planned vacation in India, having heard horror stories of tourists having caught dysentery. As long as the Indians won't clean up their act, it won't be a country for me to visit, what's the point of visiting Taj Mahal while having the turista ?

I have never been to India but previously lived in an apartment complex that was probably about 30 - 40% by the time we got out. One on one, most of my neighbors were fine, if not insular and standoffish. Their kids were great students, but uninvolved socially and without awareness of community. Beyond that, they had zero respect for properly disposing of garbage. Any place within 20 feet of the dumpster was good enough or right by their front doors. Also, while I love to eat curry, smelling it 24/7 could wear me down at times. Indian owned hotels are notoriously spartan and to be avoided unless you are on the tightest of budgets. Old dated rooms, thread bear towels and moth eaten blinds are the norm. They definitely gravitate to primarily Indian neighborhoods with certain sections of Jersey City being more like New Delhi. They are highly reproductive people, that is for sure. One in a stroller and one in the oven is the norm.

On balance they are peaceful, productive people who don't seem to overtax the social service system so it could be worse. But please, if you are Indian, tell your Indian friends and neighbors that garbage goes into the garbage.

LOL, well I can't argue with you there!
Overall your posts are a little long but give a great perspective on Western attitudes towards India. Keep fighting the good fight.
