Are you kidding? My son would break his legs trying to open a door for his young ladyfriend. He's 18, but he's no slacker.

His momma taught him better.

Not quite, it all depends on where you go, each region has it's own culture, traditions, art, language, etc etc but this kind of a problem with communication only occurs when you go to the rural areas, most cities have crowds that speak English, and Hindi for the most part, so the communication is not a problem there, although it sounds really inconvenient for someone that has never been there, the locals are used to it and they accept that they all speak different languages, and are quite co operative with each other for that reason, it's like a part of life.

That's why i don't like when people stereotype all the men from there, you would find people ranging from extremely orthodox to very liberal, and there's hardly anything common between someone from the interior villages to say someone who's brought up in an uptown suburb in the city. But then stereotyping other's we don't have much idea about is perhaps a common fallacy of mankind, and I confess, I am guilty of the same at times.

That's why I assumed everybody spoke Hindi...
