When in India… there is a chance you might find Street side henna designers, usually you would miss them on a busy street as they are little hidden.. If you happen to see them and if you are a female or a male who likes henna then don’t miss out on a amazing experience of getting henna done.
NOTE: India is not as cheap as you think. If you have money we have awesome stuff. You dont want to spend and complain that your not getting good stuff/stay??Doesnt work like that here. We Indians or most of us think that forigners are exotic. Personally I like everyone I mean apart from many I dont i.e. I meet lot people when am travelling and i have some good friens who are of different skin tones. What i hear from “most” of them is how bad India is or how sick and tired of India they are. Or how Indians try to sell them stuff or gawk at them or try to talk or pesture them with pics or how dirty India is or how desparate we are.
Maybe its all true. It is true I suppose. Because they do that to us too. Like gawking if we dont wear appropriate cloths or behave weriedly if we travelling alone or try to sell stuff(thats what sales men do). Lets say if i go to France or Italy with a saree am pretty sure people will gawk at me. Like in a very traditional genral indian attire. When we(Indian’s) are so eager to adapt or to try to blend in western culture why not a person who is from another country try to blend in? You land in India and see how most of us dress or behave and why not try to blend in??
You know not all of our guys are rapists!! We have some amazing guys. I agree most of them just look for a quick fuck but then which guy does not?? They try but dont judge the country with that.
I dont know what one expects when coming to India. But we are not that. We want to be western but cant seem to run away from our culture. There is 100’s of years of culture which is difficult to get away or for that matter stay with too. I personally dont want that to go away. You guys are different why not just enjoy the difference. We have both sides. Developed and very under develpoed side too.
We are colourful bunch, I might not like many stuff and there are some very very moronic stuff that happens here just like everywhere else and maybe more than some countries and less than some countries. If you prepare to judge anyways and decide to hate, why come?? Accept that we are different than you guys and then just enjoy the culture difference and ofcourse be batshit careful. Dont travel alone in the night especialy female population. Mind it I am an Indian woman and I travel alone and I am batshit Careful.
