I’ve been in India a little over a year. It’s still a challenge but here are some of the things that make it bearable:

  1.  My husband
  2. My new friends
  3. Gurgaon Connections
  4. Mangos
  5. Five star hotels
  6. Udaipur
  7. Sari watching (once you’ve got one of your own you cannot keep your eyes off other people’s)
  8. Seasonable vegetables
  9. The wildlife
  10. Uniquely beautiful people

The 10 Worst Things about India – One Year in

In Musings and Amusings on June 21, 2011 at 2:54 pm

I’ve been in India a little over a year. It’s still a challenge and I’ve listed here some of the reasons why. When I’m ‘India bashing’ my husband tells me words to the effect of, “it’s easy to be negative .. blah.. blah .. it’s better to focus on positive things .. blah .. blah”. My reply to that is too rude to type. However in the interests of balance see my next post.

Here is my list of the 10 worst things about India:

  1. The filth
  2. The summer (the heat)
  3. The wine
  4. The corruption
  5. The noise
  6. The traffic
  7. The driving
  8. The meat
  9. Lack of civic pride
  10. Lack of customer service
