Once in a while you come across a piece of writing so lucid, so satirical, and so accurate that it makes you weep.
People: India has one of the largest population but few Indians. In India there are Assamese, Gujarati, Punjabi, Tamil, and others but not many Indians. Most of the Indian live abroad. People in India love to multiply and divide. They exhaust all possible combinations to form smaller and smaller groups, and all of them are far superior to the rest. What binds them gather is their love for movies, music from movies, and mobile. Men revere their goddesses, fear their mother, admire others’ wives, abuse their wives, and spoil their daughters. Women spend their lives preparing for marriage, getting married, and hating their marriage.
Custom: Indians use right hand for food, and left hand for bribe. They donate money to their god, and collect money from their bride. During major religious ceremony, the rich get to starve, and the poor get to eat. Indians burn dead bodies and living wives. In India, if a man holds his own hand, it is greeting; if he holds another man’s hand, it is friendship, if he holds his own wife’s hand, it is indecent. Custom dictates that women hide their face and expose their midriff.
