So, I've seen quite the amount of posts asking about different parts of the culture of India. Whether it comes to the dress code, language, food, customs, etc., people want to know more about it. As some of you know I'm planning a trip to India, so I did my fair bit of research on all of this, which is why I'm writing this post. This is just a little helpful information I came upon my Internet research, and I've decided to share it with you, because I've noticed that people were interested in the topic. Obviously, anyone can join in with their own advice, questions, etc., this is a forum after all. You'll have to excuse my writing style, I'm no writer or a journalist. India doesn't have a unified culture. The most common advice I found on this topic. India is a mixture of languages, customs, food, festivals, holidays, etc. If you will be travelling the entire country, it's highly likely that every day will be a whole new experience. This is one of the "selling points" if you ask me - multiple experiences for the price of one! In the lines of the previous point, there's a huge difference between the older and younger generations. It's nothing unusual to have a conservative parent and his modern children in the same room. The contrast between huge cities and small, poor villages is gigantic. And those high and low classes live almost next to each other. This is why India seems so cheap to foreigners. Because of this unique social structure you can spend a huge budget or a small one, depending on your preferences. Indian people are less individual than us (foreigners). Parents play a huge part of their children's lives and most businesses are tailored for families. Basically, family is the building block of the society of India. People on the streets are very open and willing to talk to strangers. There's no "NO" in India. This one baffled me the most, and I ended up loving it. You have to try and avoid the answer "no", unless it's a really, really harsh negation. So instead of saying "No, thank you, I don't want a burger.", you say "I just ate, thank you". There's no rush in India. Everything has its relaxed pace, and that's the best way to experience the country. Obviously, all of this is what I READ, not experienced. So I'd like someone to confirm or deny these, and add their own as well.
