Indian ironies (1)

India,contradictions,ironiesI often say that I find it very difficult to speak about India because whatever I can say about India is true, and the opposite as well. In other words, if I say something, anybody can also give me examples of the contrary; and we could both be right! To illustrate, here are some ‘Indian ironies’ available on the Net (I didn’t write them); I would have loved to find the same about the French but I didn’t…

  • We live in a country where seeing a cop makes us nervous rather than feeling safe.
  • We are obsessed with screenguards on our smartphones even though most come with scratchproof Gorilla Glass but don't bother wearing a helmet while riding our bikes.
  • It is shallow to ask for dowry but prospective bridegrooms should make six or seven figured salaries and possess green card.
  • We live in a world, where artificial lemon flavour is used for WELCOME DRINK and real lemon is used in FINGER BOWL.
