Indian Quirks

Below is a collection of Indian quirks; things only us Indians do (As far as I know). Some are funny, some intriguing, some pure evil.

  1. Calling food with meat “non-veg“. This is strange because we don’t call poor people “non-rich” or dry stuff “non-wet”.
  2. Calling USB drives as “Pen Drives”. Come on, it doesn’t even look like a Pen.
  3. Using terms “lakh” and “crore” officially to refer to 100,000 or 10,000,000.
  4. Men spitting in the urinal while peeing.
  5. Disrespecting all animals, except one.
  6. Asking for “extra gravy” and “extra pieces” when getting food packed from restaurant. Later complaining that the quantity has gone down since last time.
  7. People calling cousins “brothers” & “sisters”.
  8. Having “Pure veg” restaurants.
  9. Calling unrelated people “uncles” & “aunties”.
  10. Hating on China & the Chinese while being surrounded by & using cheap Chinese products.
  11. Stock trading at work.
  12. Not considering Onions and Garlic as vegetarian food.
  13. Having the cheapest Telecom service in the world and still complaining/cribbing about bills.
  14. Preferring to ask random strangers for directions than using GPS on the phone.
  15. Children staying with their parents and/or siblings even after growing up and getting married.
  16. Harassing Indians in the service industry, like waiters, flight attendants etc.
  17. Demanding to swap seats in trains and airplanes.
  18. The swear word to insult sisters (Behenchod) is more popular than the swear words to insult mothers (Machod, Madarchod). Maybe because Patriarchal Indian men are more protective of their sisters.
  19. Considering sex a taboo while being the birthplace of Kama Sutra & having the second largest population in the world.
  20. Worshipping movie stars.
