There’s no place like India — vibrant, flamboyant, and bizarre. Home to spontaneity and jugaad, India houses special people and special characteristics that are alien to outsiders. Indians are a bunch of creative people, navigating their way through life with these weird yet lovable customs and practices.

You have to be an Indian to understand these crazy things that happen in this weirdly beautiful country.

1. The traffic on the road doesn’t limit itself to cars, buses, rickshaws, and bikes. India takes it a step further and caters to the animal audience as well — the cows and the dogs.

2. Two-wheelers take on a different meaning in India with three or more people fitting themselves on a scooty or bike effortlessly.


3. The only way to book your seat in a crowded train or bus is by keeping your luggage on the seat and anyone breaking that agreement faces rage not known to mankind.


4. The easiest way to fix things is with jugaad. Indians have the skill to find the resources or solve complicated issues with the simplest of solutions.


5. The festivals in India are not limited to religion because they’re celebrated by everyone. A common sighting: A Hindu celebrating Eid and a Christian celebrating Diwali.

6. The food in India is not just ridiculously delicious; it is innovative. Every cuisine gets a desi touch — Chinese bhel, dosa pizzas, or Maharaja burgers.


7. The families are larger than the population in some countries. Most Indians have relatives they haven’t heard of and only know of their existence during family functions.


8. The best way to protect appliances and furniture in India is to keep the plastic packaging on to avoid damage. Taking out this protection is equal to committing a sin.


9. The expressions and actions are not just limited to the face. Indians are borderline obsessed with Bollywood and try these acting skills in their daily lives.

10. The country where every day is an adventure, even if you’re on your way to work or out to buy groceries for the house.
