Listed below are the top 10 typical stereotypes that every Indian is accustomed to do; for when you grow up in an Indian society you get used to its norms and realms – after all this indifference is what unites us and accentuates the secularism of the country.
1. CONSULTING AN ASTROLOGER FOR EVERYTHING.
Be it moving into a new place, seeking brides, looking for jobs we seek astrologers no matter what.
2) LIVING WITH COMPARISON.
Ranging from marks, complexion, job, cars even brides we grow up and live with comparison, it’s always he has better marks than you, she has better figure than you. Duh 😀
3) HEALING WITH HOME REMEDIES.
People prefer self-treatment with ginger, turmeric, garlic, pepper and everything under the sun, anything but visiting a clinic.
4. ASKING FOR EXTRA COVERS.
Every time you go for shopping mothers ask for spare bags, bags and more bags and fended it off saying it will come into use someday soon. So each one of us; has a stack of poly bags inside another poly bag and so on.
5. CHOOSING BETWEEN ENGINEERING AND MEDICINE.
India is the only country where every student is forced to choose either engineering or medicine. No other options DOT. However feel free to drift to another profession post them.
6. FIGHTING FOR FREEBIES.
We always hang around to ask for extra pani puri, pav or ice gola even though he has served what we actually paid for. This is so customary that most shopkeepers are used to it. Also the never ending fights asking for free dhaniya or mirchi.
7) COPING WITH REGULAR ‘FAIR GIRL WANTED’ ADS.
All classified columns are filled with columns asking for fair girls. Forget about job profile, family or status, it’s all about being fair all the way, yeah I know it’s not fair, irony indeed.
8) APPEARANCE OVER ATTRIBUTE.
Every time the bell rings, most run to answer them while Indian women are forced to run for their dupattas first.
9. AUNTIES HAVE ALTERNATIVE CAREERS.
India is the only country where all aunties have alternate careers of matchmaking. The most elder ones are the ones with most expertise.
10. AND THE MOST IMPORTANT, INDIANS HAVE STARTED READING ONLY POST CHETAN BHAGAT’S ERA.
Most have started reading only after the advent of Chetan Bhagat before that most of them limited themselves to reading only newspapers and magazines. Predominantly he’s the one who has made the younger generation read more , and kudos to him for making the nation read.
