Question and answer

Common questions asked  when you go abroad and their appropriate replies which you can give


Does India have cars?

A.     No.  We ride elephants to work.  The government is trying to
       encourage ride-sharing schemes.

Q.  Does India have TV?
A.     No.  We only have cable.

Q.  Are all Indians vegetarian?
A.     Yes.  Even tigers are vegetarian in India.

Q.  How come you speak English so well?
A.     You see when the British were ruling India,they employed Indians as servants.  It took too long for the Indians to learn English.So the British isolated an "English-language" gene and infused
their servants' babies with it and since then all babies born are born speaking English.

Q.  Are you a Hindi?
A.     Yes.  I am spoken everyday in Northern India.

Q.  Do you speak Hindu?
A.     Yes,  I also speak Jewish, Islam and Christianity.

Q.  Is it true that everyone there is very corrupt?
A.     Yes, in fact, I had to bribe my parents so that they would
       let me go to school.

Q.  India is very hot, isn't it?
A.     It is so hot there that all the water boils spontaneously.
       That is why tea is such a popular drink in India.


Q.  I saw on TV that people there walk on burning coals. Why do they do that?
A.     We don't have shoes.  So we burn the botton of our feet to make it hard so that we can walk.

Bizzare cases

Vienna, Austria: A 73-year-old woman was taken to court by her son on stalking charges after phoning him as many as 49 times a day for two-and-a-half years. “I just wanted to talk to him,” the woman stated, but apparently the feeling wasn’t mutual. She was fined almost $500 for her actions.

Case 2

Edwardsville, Illinois: Charles Douglas, 58, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after approaching parents in a park and asking if he could tickle their children. A judge dismissed the charge, ruling Douglas’ actions legal. Creepy, but legal.

Case 3


Patna, India: Balgovind Prasad, a 75-year-old doctor, was sentenced to three months in jail for taking a 51-cent bribe 24 years earlier. Prasad had taken the money from a sweeper in exchange for issuing a fake medical certificate.
