Myth 1: Indians Roam Around Naked
I don't even know who got this idea, but it is not true at all. Indians travel fully clothed, and the dresses and saris there, are in fact quite beautiful!
"You know, I'm kind of surprised," the brown haired innocent girl said.
"Why?" asked I.
"Well, aren't Indians supposed to be..naked? This is the first time I've come to your house and I didn't think that you would have clothes on."
"No! No! No! Where did you get an idea like that!"
She shrugged her shoulders and we continued playing.
Myth 2: Indian Parents Care a Lot About Their Children's Grades, and Make Them Study a Lot
No, this isn't true. Because, my parents don't care about my grades so much that they will yell at me if I get bad ones. I do study a lot and get good grades, but that is by my will. However, my parents will help me if I ask, or if I get a bad grade on something.
Myth 3: We Speak Indian
No! No! No! No! There is no such language in this whole entire world called Indian!
Look it up if you don't believe me.
Myth 4: There are Diseases Everywhere
That is not true, at all. In crowded places, it is possible to get sick, naturally, but it's just you who should be taking the liberty to be careful. The doctors are very experienced, anyway.
Myth 5: India is Full of Hinduisms
India welcomes any type of people who belong to any religion.
Myth 6: India Revolves around Curry
Well, we do like are curry, but there are plenty of others delicious foods too, such as samosa, naan, dosa, dahl, etc..
Myth 7: We Have Elephants and Tigers as Pets
Nope! Tigers live in the wild, and so do Elephants. If you visit India, it's pretty unlikely that you'll even see one.
Myth 8: The Whole Cricket Thing
I didn't know much about cricket either, until this family gathering, where this boy did not respect my rights that the Bill of Rights gave me, and forced me to play cricket, though I did not want to. It's actually pretty fun, and it's pretty similar to Baseball. Basically, there are two runners, and one of them bats. They try to run to a certain mark, before the people on the field throw the ball that was batted to the wicket. It is not necessary that they run, but they can if it is possible to before the ball is caught and thrown, There are such things as outs, and these happen when the field catches the ball before it bounces, throwing the ball at the wicket before the runner makes it, etc. There are also things called fours and sixes which basically depends on how far or good the batsman bats.
Myth 9: The Government
We do have a good system of government! In fact, it is very similar to Canada's, being a parliamentary democracy, having a prime minister, and being in the commonwealth of nations.
I hope that you learned something from this, or that I broke a myth that you thought was true!
