Today, Xiaozaojun wants to chat with everyone. . .
what's the topic? Chat about the neighbors who are currently awkward with us. . .
Yes, it is India. . .
For reasons of work, Xiaozaojun has been engaged in communication-related projects in India for a few years, working and living for almost three years.
▼Small jujube visa and immigration stamp
During this period, Xiaozaojun was basically a person, a backpack, a box, and went north and south. . .
It travels dozens of cities across India and is dealing with local people every day. . .
India is the country with the longest stay in the past. Because of this unique experience of the Scorpio, after returning home, I will always be asked by relatives and friends about various problems in India.
Indeed, India is a country full of mystery for us.

It is our neighboring country, Tang Xuanzang went to the scriptures, and Zheng He went to the Western Ocean. However, after all, there are natural barriers like the Himalayas that make the two countries like the world.
Because China and India have too many similar places (Asian neighbors, one of the four ancient civilizations, have experienced colonial or semi-colonial times, are large populations, are developing countries, are in a period of rapid development) So people always like to put the two countries together for comparison.
Let's take a look at this country first. . .
India, the full name is the Republic of India. Located in the South Asian subcontinent, the northern shore of the Indian Ocean, with a land area of 2.98 million square kilometers. The capital is New Delhi. The currency used is the rupee.
India is the second most populous country in the world, second only to China. According to current trends, the population of India will surpass China (perhaps earlier) in 2024.

In fact, Xiaozaojun wanted to write this article about India long time ago, but I want to make such a big country through an article to make it clear, and I am a bit discouraged, I don't know where to write it. . .
Therefore, after thinking about it, I decided to write in the way of question and answer.
In this article, Xiaozaojun will answer the questions that everyone cares about most.
I believe that with these answers, everyone can solve the mystery of India and truly understand the country.
What do Indians believe in teaching?
Let's start with religion.
In Xiao Juejun's view, everything about Indians, including work and life, is closely related to religion. Religion is the foundation of this country. Without understanding the religion of India, you cannot fully understand it and its people.
▼ All the Indian introductions that do not mention Indian religion are hooligans.
Our country is not a religious country, and most people are not religious (although there are churches, temples, etc., but religious beliefs are not mainstream). Because of this, it is difficult to imagine what a purely religious country is like, and it is difficult to understand why religious beliefs are so religious.
In India, almost everyone believes in religion, mostly Hinduism (about 80%), then Islam (about 14%), and then other sects such as Sikhism and Christianity. (from 2011 data)
▼Religion ratio in India
(Data from the network, 2011)
Hinduism evolved from the development of Brahmanism. When Jujube was in India, it was very interesting to have a boring look at the story of Hinduism. I have also collected a god in the past, specializing in the various characters in the Indian religion, very interesting and vivid, but unfortunately can not be found now. If you are interested, you can search for "Hindu mythology" by Baidu.
▼The three main gods of Hinduism (the god of creation, Brahma, the god of maintenance, Vishnu, the god of destruction, Shiva)
In general, Hinduism has two major characteristics:
- Worship power. Whoever has strength, who believes and worships.
- Emphasize inequality in sentient beings. There is a hierarchy between people.
Hinduism may be the only religion in the world that emphasizes inequality in sentient beings. Others such as Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam emphasize the life of the people. Only Hinduism divides believers into different levels.
Here we must mention the unique "caste system" of Hinduism.
What is the "caste system"?
The "caste system", also known as the "legacy system", is the moral foundation of Indian society and exists only among Hindus.
The “caste system” is a relatively unique social and cultural phenomenon in India. It divides people in Indian society into four levels and a “people outside the ranks”.
The first level, Brahman, is mainly a monk aristocrat, monopolizing religious privileges.
The second level, Kshatri, is a military aristocrat and an administrative aristocrat. In ancient times, it monopolized political privileges.
The third level, the shack, is the free civilized class of the Aryans, mainly engaged in business and farming, and hunting. The caste system developed to the later stage, and a large number of poor and bankrupt shackles were the first toma.
The fourth level, Sudra, the vast majority of the conquered indigenous people, belong to non-Aryan. In the beginning, it existed as the prisoners and slaves of the first three levels.
Because of this characteristic of Hinduism, India can feel the extremely strong hierarchical concept of Indians.
When jujube was working on a project in India, he had a lot of dealings with local Indian employees and Indian customer employees. A very obvious phenomenon is that the young people in India are very humble and polite, even very embarrassed. When they work together, the clothes are dressed in a straight, standing straight, a "sir": "Yes, sir", "Thank you, sir", "Sorry, sir", makes Xiaozaojun feel very uncomfortable and even a little scared.
And if it is an old employee, a small leader, the attitude is completely different, very embarrassing, and arrogant. If it is a middle-level leader, or a high-level leader, it is basically the kind of prestige, the shelves are bigger than one, and the one is more than one.
At the beginning, Xiaozaojun thought that the young man in India was humble because he first came to see it. The old staff was so embarrassed because of their individual character.
Later, I discovered that it is not an individual character, but an overall phenomenon.
This is the expression of the concept of hierarchy.
The humble new staff, who have been working for a long time, and the technology is getting stronger and stronger, has changed, and began to give orders to the updated employees.
▼Indian boy on the subway to work (picture from the network)
Our company's colleagues from China are characterized by modesty and politeness, and hope to be close to local employees. However, Xiaozaojun will remind them every time - don't deliberately pull the local staff. Because if you eliminate the level gap in their subconscious, it is difficult for them to seriously cooperate with you to do things. If you don't cooperate with it, if he thinks that your technique is not as good as him, he will even crowd you out and bypass you. He will not put you in the eye and let you lose your status.
For such an example, Xiaozaojun has seen it many times.
It is also common for employees who have grown up to constantly raise prices, raise conditions, and engage in small teams.
India is a superpopulation country with a very low level of education (more than half of the population is illiterate). However, the social contradictions in India are not as fierce as imagined, and there is no serious social unrest. The main reason for this is religion.
▼ poor but happy teenager
The teachings of Hinduism are deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. Believers believe that they belong to the low caste, and they should live like this. They can only practice hard and accept it.
Although the “caste system” has been abolished since India’s independence, the caste discrimination caused by the caste system for thousands of years can be abolished. The “caste system” is still mainstream in many parts of India (especially in rural areas), and caste discrimination is still quite serious.
Who is India’s “untouchables”?
As we mentioned earlier, in the "caste system", in addition to the four castes, there is also a "people outside the ranks." This group of people is the "untouchable" (English name is untouchable, untouchable), also known as "Dalite". They have the lowest social status and are the most discriminated against.
A quarter of India’s population is “untouchables” with 300-400 million people. . .
In the view of Xiaozaojun, “the untouchables” is the most tragic existence on this planet, and it has suffered discrimination and insult. They are only allowed to do the most despicable occupations (cleaning the toilet, etc.), no shoes are allowed on the street, they must stand on any occasion, and they are not allowed to enter religious places.
The key point is that this "untouchable" status is still inherited. . . If either parent is a "untouchable", then their descendants are "untouchables." . .
▼ poor children
To be honest, Xiaozaojun has "three fears" in India: one is afraid of mosquitoes, the other is afraid of wild dogs, and the third is afraid of "the people". . .
Xiaozaojun is not discriminating against them, but they are really terrible. . . terrible. . . afraid. . .
On the streets of India, it is often seen that “the untouchables” are wandering around (women and children are mostly). He (she) is hungry and skinny, his eyes full of despair and fierceness. Once foreigners are found, they will flock to beg. If you are sitting in a car, they will be surrounded by the fear of hitting your window glass, asking you to give alms (very crazy), if you are sitting in TUTU (three-wheeled motorcycles everywhere in India), it is even more terrible. They will touch you and touch you without any scruples.
Once you encounter such a situation, please remember to leave: and do not give money.
It’s not that Xiaozaojun has no compassion. It is because, once you give the money, they will become even more crazy, become more aggressive, and even call more companions to beg you. . .
If you don't give money, he will leave on his own after a while. . .
Xiaozaojun was almost trapped once, but fortunately a local person could not stand it and shouted loudly to help me get out of trouble. . . That scene is still unforgettable. . .
If you must give it, remember to run it as soon as you turn it around. The sooner the better. . .

Is Hinduism Buddhism?
Many people think that Hinduism is Buddhism, or Hinduism comes from Buddhism. In fact, this is not right.
(The following text comes from the network)
Around 1500 BC, the Aryans invaded India. India had the earliest documentary "Vedas" (Veda, Sanskrit originally meant "knowledge"). It is not only the oldest and most sacred source of law in India, but also 吠The missionary classic of Taoism. Around the 7th century BC, the Vedicism characterized by the worship of nature gradually evolved into Brahmanism. It is a polytheism, and advocates the three major programs of "Vedas, Apocalypse, Brahman, Supreme". The basic teaching is "Vatican I am one". And "karma reincarnation." After the birth of Brahmanism, it soon became the state religion and became the pillar of state rule. Around the 6th century BC, the class contradictions under slavery became more and more acute. The lower castes became increasingly powerful in wars and economic activities, and they were very dissatisfied with the supremacy of Brahman. Buddhism came into being. Buddhism opposes the privileged status of higher castes, but inherits the causal reincarnation and believes that it is necessary to practice to avoid the suffering of reincarnation. Even the spouse who is cast aside can achieve the "nirvana" that is not immortal through practice. Accepted by the lower classes. The peacock dynasty’s Ayurvedic Buddhism was the state religion. After the 6th century AD, Buddhism gradually declined in India, and the reformed Brahmanism, that is, Hinduism.
All in all, although Buddhism originated in India, the Indians themselves have basically never believed in it (currently only 1% of the believers are gathered in the northern Nepalese border).
There are many deep-seated reasons for the decline of Buddhism, such as the invasion of Islam, the economic support of Buddhist monks, etc., and colleagues who are interested can search Baidu and have a lot of information.
Are Indians wearing headscarves?
Many people see Indians on TV wearing headscarves, thinking that Indians are headscarves. Actually it is not right.
The headscarves are all Sikhs in the Indians and believe in Sikhism.
▼ handsome Sikh man
In India, the crowd is also geographically divided. The more Indians go south, the darker the skin. Going north? People must not only be white but also richer.
India has 27 states, 6 federal territories and 1 national capital jurisdiction. Its "state" is equivalent to the province of China. Each state has its own elected government, and the chief minister of each state is the highest executive of the state (equivalent to the governor). The federal territories and the national capital jurisdiction are managed by the government appointed by the coalition government.
Each state has a shorthand of two letters, such as MH (Mahrastra, also known as Marbon), WB (West Bengal), MP (Medical).
The Sikhs are mainly distributed in Punjab in northwestern India. The Sikhs are relatively fierce among the Indians. They belong to the fighting nation, they are brave and warlike, and they are very intelligent and have a mind.
The distinctive features of Sikhs are turbans, long hair, beards, iron bracelets, short swords, and shorts. In addition, the Sikhs are banned from alcohol.
Everyone in the American movies often sees Indians, and they often hear the word "Punjab". Yes, most people are Sikhs. People from more affluent areas of northern India have immigrated to the United States.
Is the sectarian conflict in India really serious?
Yes. India is a religious museum with many different religious beliefs. Since there are different beliefs, there will be contradictions in beliefs, and each other is considered to be "infidels."
The most acute contradiction in India is the contradiction between Hinduism and Islam.
It is precisely because of the historical grievances of the two, there are too many irreconcilable contradictions, plus some external factors, which directly led to the "Indian-Pakistan division" when Gandhi led the Indian independence movement in 1947. Muslims in India jumped out of independent statehood and became "East Pakistan" and "Western Pakistan." "East Pakistan" became the present Bangladesh after the 1971 War of Independence.
▼ Mahatma Gandhi
Although there are "Indo-Pakistani divisions" and the two sects draw a line, the Muslim population in India is too big to be relocated. Therefore, there are still a large number of Muslims in India.
Muslims are also a group of intelligent, hardworking and determined people. Although there are few people, they have survived steadily.
▼The Great Migration of India and Pakistan during the Period of Separation - The Unfortunate Past
Although the friction between Hinduism and Islam is not large, it still occurs from time to time. Especially in remote areas, between villages and villages, there have been horrendous incidents such as fighting and murder.
There are many illiterate people in remote people, and fanatical religious beliefs can lead to brutality and violence, and the means are extremely cruel. For example, a villager, after catching a pagan, lifted it up and threw it on the wall, throwing it away, and killing people alive. After comparison, it’s not bad to hang and kill and burn. . .
In the 21st century, such a thing will happen, it is. . . Ugh. . .
Is the Indian really doing the "thing" with his left hand?
(Reminder: This paragraph may cause some people's discomfort... If you are not good enough, please skip this paragraph)
The "thing matter" here refers to rubbing PP. . . I want to be conscious of the wall. . .
Almost every person who asks Xiaojujun about the Indian issue is the first one. . .
This is indeed the case. . . Indians do have the habit of rubbing PP directly with their left hand (I mean direct, paperless). . .
In the washrooms of India, it is generally difficult to see toilet paper and only see a small bucket. . .
Well, that's right. . . After the locals went to the toilet, they solved the problem directly with their hands and then washed their hands in small buckets. . .
But not all Indians are like this.
Although Xiaozaojun can't ask one by one. . . (Afraid to be beaten) However, from the side, many toilets have begun to provide toilet paper, especially in public places in big cities (small cities do not say toilet paper, even public toilets are not...), such as hotels, shopping malls, etc. There are also rolls of paper, flat paper and paper for purchase in the supermarket.
Society is changing and civilization is progressing. . .
Note: Just because Indians use their left hand to rub PP, Indians basically do not need left hand when they dine (they are usually hand-picked, if left-handed...)
Do Indians only eat curry?
of course not. . .
Eat every day, even if you eat Shanzhen seafood can not eat. . .
Moreover, curry is also divided into many types.
Curry is a sauce made from a variety of spices. It is used in many countries in Asia Pacific to cook with curry, but it is indeed from India.
There are so many varieties of curry in India, but it tastes a bit heavy. In a closed occasion such as an airplane, you can't escape a curry flavor. . .
Indians eat curry and are mixed with rice.
Xiaozaojun often sees local Indian employees or customers, with lunch boxes, several layers, some put curry, some put rice. Pour the curry on the rice, then stir it with your right hand, mix it, mix it, then grab it with your hands and stuff it into your mouth. . .
Is the cow really a "god" in India?
Both right and wrong. Rather, the cow is not a god, and the cow represents God.
Shiva, one of the main gods of India, his mount is a cow. Cattle are regarded as "sacred beasts" by Hindus and are not allowed to be slaughtered. But not all cows are "sacred beasts", but also sub-species. Generally white is the case, buffalo and yellow cattle are not counted.
In India, you can see that you want to respect a little white cow with a decorative object and a color on the corner. . . People compare cattle B. . .
▼This cow, compare cattle
Eating in India is really a hassle.
Hinduism does not allow beef, and Islam does not allow pork, so we are at most eating chicken. . . Of course, sometimes it is secretly to sneak a bit of beef from the Islamic community to eat, even if it is open. . .
The most eaten by Xiaozaojun in India is fried rice. . .
Chicken fried rice, egg fried rice, shrimp fried rice, vegetarian fried rice ... just take turns to eat, eat for several months. . .
That kind of sour feeling. . . Ugh. . .
In India, many people eat vegetarian food, and the more people with higher castes, the more particular they are.
They are very particular about vegetarianism, not only that meat can't be eaten, eggs can't be eaten, and food made from animal oil can't be eaten. If your biscuits contain animal butter, then you can't eat them. If you cook the meat in a pot, then use this pot to cook vegetarian food, and they can't eat it.
Every time I come across this group of people to come to China for training, the jujube who is responsible for the reception is very big. . .
Is the Indian really shaking his head to represent "yes"?
The Indians’ shaking their heads are also divided into two types.
▼ If it is the kind of shaking left and right, as we mean, it means "no."
▼ If it is the kind of swaying up and down, it means “good”, “row”, “no problem”. . .
In fact, it is quite easy to distinguish. . . Their cervical spondylosis rate should not be high. . .
In addition to shaking his head, India has some behavioral precautions. For example, the head of a child must not touch. . .
If you are a man, Indian men will often take the initiative to take your hand. People are intimate and do not mean that they are GAY. . . Oh, it’s good to get used to it. . .
Is there really a lot of Indian beauty?
Deceptive! Deceptive! Deceptive!
There are so many Indian beauty that everyone has seen in Indian movies. Xiaozaojun has been in India for so many years and has never seen it. . . The average female value is far lower than my big day. . .
▼I have never seen such a
The streets and alleys can usually be seen, the skin is basically black, and the life brand is very obvious, and it has suffered from vicissitudes.
▼ Female salesperson who is doing business
▼There is still such a good one.
▼ Most of it is like this (picture from the network)
Indian body shape is very exaggerated. The young guy and the girl are very thin, a little bigger, and they start to get fat.
▼Indian women like to wear sari
Therefore, you often see the Indian uncle riding a motorcycle on the street (there are a lot of Indian motorcycles), sitting behind an Indian aunt, Indian aunt wearing a sari with a waist and several layers of "swim ring" on the waist. . . .
Is the status of Indian women really low?
Yes, very, very, very low. . .
In India, being a woman is quite painful. The local patriarchal is very serious. For most Indians, the daughter is going to marry and is cumbersome.
Indians are especially afraid of having a daughter, because if they have a daughter, and the daughter will marry in the future, Laozhang needs to give half of the property as a dowry. . . Because, according to their logic, when a daughter marries, she must rely on the other side to support her. . .
Xiao Zaojun, a driver friend in India, was very saddened and had three daughters in the family. As a result, the daughter of the eldest daughter gave half of the family, married the second daughter to half of the family, married the three daughters and gave half of the family, miserable, and helpless. . .
▼This driver friend with 3 daughters is very good
▼Indian wealthy married daughter, often gives a pretty rich dowry
Because of this, the status of women in India is very low, most Indian families do not like daughters, and the proportion of girls who are educated is far lower than that of boys.
In addition, it is necessary to say something about the Indian marriage system.
All along, Indian society is basically a parent-designated marriage, and young men and women are not allowed to fall in love.
Once, I asked a local employee colleague if you were free to fall in love. He thought about it calmly and then told me, "Maybe I will be killed or interrupted..."
If it is a free love across the caste class, it will really be killed. India has had a vicious incident in which parents killed their children and burned their bodies. . .
Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, Romeo and Juliet, how free love is hard-won. . .
Why are Indians called "A San"?
According to Xiaozaojun, this title comes from before liberation.
There are many concessions in Shanghai in old China. There are many policemen from India in the British Concession. They are the Indians (Sikhs) who whistled in the movies, wrapped in headscarves and armed with batons. Their shoulders are often The epaulettes with three bars, so the Shanghai people called them "A San." . . Spread to this day. . .
Xiaozaojun does not know if it is right, let's be a piece of it. . .
▼The Indian police of the concession (picture from the network)
Why are Indian movies so hot these years?
This question is difficult to answer. .
Indian movies are not fires in recent years, but they have always been very hot. . . Do not believe you go back and ask your parents. . .
Indian movies have a Bollywood, everyone knows. People are also more thoroughly commercialized in film industrialization. . . There are special places to shoot movies. . . And many movies are taken directly abroad. . .
To be honest, there are many scenes in Indian movies that I have barely seen in India. . . Estimated to be film sheds or overseas shots. . .
However, Indian films have leaped many excellent works over the years. Xiaozaojun believes that the main reason is that India's growing awareness of civilization is challenging existing social malpractices.
With the development of the economy, more and more people have received education and their cultural level has improved. They have found that they have been trapped in many social problems all the time. They began to expose such problems and whipped them to try to change the status quo.
For example, the "three silly Bollywood" is a question of education against India, as well as a male-female problem of family values, and the supremacy of authority. . .
"Wrestling, Dad" is also a problem for men and women. . .
"Little Lori's Uncle Monkey" is ostensibly a political issue between nations and is actually a religious issue. . .
"I drop a god", it is aimed at religious issues. . .
▼Three silly Bollywood
▼Little Loli's Monkey Uncle
▼Family familiar Indian male actor, Amir Khan
It is precisely because more and more people realize that India's development must solve these problems, so these films will trigger a boom in Indian society. . .
In our country, many common problems in Indian films also exist, so they can resonate and are welcomed.
Compared to India, at least they are able to publicly disclose and reveal social issues through movies. . . and. . . You know
Do Indians really like to dance?
Xiaozaojun feels that instead of saying that Indians like to dance, it is better to say that the Chinese are too dislike to dance. . .
We are deeply influenced by feudal thoughts and there is still more rejection of dancing. In fact, in addition to our country, everyone looks at neighboring countries, and even the world, most people and people of all countries like to dance.
Dancing is a form of emotional expression and a cultural expression.
Indians really like dancing very much, and they start to break when they have nothing to do. . .
▼The song and dance in the film and television drama
Not only in movies, but also traditional festivals in India. When there are festivals or celebrations, people start to dance. No matter the elderly or children, or men and women, they all jump. Maybe not everyone jumps so beautiful, but it does not hinder them. Express your own pleasure. . .
▼ street dancers (picture from the network)
When Xiaozaojun was working on the project, once, the project achieved milestones and a small party was held. The local staff danced at the party. At the beginning, Xiaozaojun was still awkward and embarrassed. Later he was squatted and went up. . . Where to jump, just swinging with the rhythm. . . However, what is the relationship? Ha ha!
In addition, there are many religions in India, so there are many festivals. In the three days, the festival is held at the festival, and then the festival begins to sing and dance. . . Their optimism is really enviable. . .
▼Festival carnival (picture from the network)
Is there really Indian oil?
Yes, as follows:
Is the software industry in India really strong?
Because of its long-term British colonization, India has a deep colonial cultural imprint. Such as architecture, railways, etc. The same is true at the spiritual and cultural level, which is greatly influenced by the British.
Language is no exception. Britain is the official language in India. . . You are in the streets, all in English, including the store's signboards and signposts. . .
▼Indian roadside sign
As long as it is an educated person, it will be English, and unlike us who are dumb English, people really learn as a language. . .
All in all, in India, as long as you can speak English, the general problem is not too big.
Because Indians have good English, they have an advantage in international cooperation. The software industry has indeed grown rapidly and is very large. Bangalore, India, is known as Silicon Valley in India, where many high-tech corporate headquarters are located.
India's software industry is developed, mainly in software outsourcing. That is to say, companies in Western societies such as the United States like to outsource software development to Indian companies. Because on the one hand they are good at English, easy to communicate, and on the one hand they are many people, the price is low, the cost is low, there is another aspect, because of the time zone. . .
The United States and India are just the opposite of the time zone. Therefore, after the Americans finish the day, they are handed over to the Indians in the Eastern Hemisphere. After the Indians finish, they are handed over to the Americans (the Americans are just dawning...)
In terms of time efficiency, this approach is very advantageous. . .
In addition, there are more customer service centers in India. . . Therefore, the international customer service hotline of the big company is generally English with an Indian accent. . .
We are mainly linguistically disadvantaged. . .
Is there really so many local tyrants in India?
Yes, India really has a lot of local tyrants. . .
The gap between the rich and the poor in the Indian social class is very large. As mentioned earlier, India has a large number of people who live below the poverty line. However, they also have many rich people. India's private economy is very developed, and many private consortia or families have strong capabilities.
For example, the Tata Group of India (the TATA wooden door in our country does not have a half-money relationship), the Tata family behind it has a history of nearly 150 years, and it has more than 100 companies, including 30 listed companies, currently The total market value of listed companies is 840 billion yuan (RMB), accounting for 7.8% of the total market value of the Bombay Stock Exchange.
▼ Most of the trucks on the roads in India are TATA
(India trucks are like this, dressed up in a colorful way ^_^ )
There are also customers of Xiaozaojun, Reliance (also known as Reliance Group) in the telecommunications industry, the Ambani family behind it, energy, commerce, communications and finance in India. Even agriculture and other fields have a strong voice. Its boss is India's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, who last year claimed to provide free 4G network to India.
▼ India's richest man Mukesh Ambani and its palace mansion
These wealthy families control India's economic lifeline and are in the political and economic fields of India. Open Party, cover the mansion, charter package luxury hotel, and spend a lot of money.
▼ One side is poor and the clothes are not covered, and the other side is arrogant, this is India.
Is it really amazing for Indians to do business?
Indians, especially those in the northern region (the Sikhs just mentioned), and Muslims, are very smart in doing business.
They are not clever, clever business, selling fakes, shoddy and the like. They are very principled and will take advantage of the rules. Their business mind is a bit like the Jewish feeling.
Doing business with Indians, unless it is a state-owned Indian company, can be private. For private companies or private bosses, people are very principled, firmly hold the contract and fight for the benefits through the terms of the contract. The Chinese are thinking about engaging in relationships, bypassing principles and emotional routes, and they feel very uncomfortable about this.
There are many companies in China that are now opening up markets in India, and many Indians are coming to China to do business. Remember, you must not underestimate them, you must not take it lightly.

What is democracy in India?
India is indeed a democracy, or a country that considers itself democratic.
On the roadside in India, the most visible, in addition to religious-related statues, are the posters of political figures and campaign posters. . .
There are also often huge political gatherings. . .
India does attach importance to elections, but voters have also become tools for the use of politicians. For a developing country like India, many people are not eating enough, where is the election? And politics is a game of powerful people. If they have money, they can play, exchange power, and use power for profit. . .
India is different from some countries. India is rich in the people. Although the political system has certain flaws, it emphasizes that private rights are above all else.
The biggest manifestation is that India's public facilities are very bad, because the government has no money, and if the government wants to build a project, the opposition often takes the lead. In addition, land acquisition and the like will definitely violate the interests of some people. If they do not agree, you will certainly not be able to get it. Coupled with the efficiency of the Indians, it is not generally low. . .
Therefore, in India, the most visible is the large and unfinished project. . . From time to time, there are a few people working, you don't know if it is a stoppage. . . Still have not stopped working. . .

What do Indians think about the conflict of 1962?
After all, it was a bloody conflict and brought great self-esteem to India. Therefore, this question should be avoided as much as possible when you are in India.
Once, when Zaojujun chatted with an Indian guy, he mentioned this.
He told Xiao Zaojun that this conflict was a political consequence of a politician because of the complicated political environment at the time. He feels that China and India should maintain a friendly relationship and should not be influenced by politics. It was a bloody conflict that should not have happened.
This guy was educated and the reason he expressed was surprising to me. Although his views do not represent the views of all Indians or most Indians, they at least show the political rationality of Indian educated people.
Is India suitable for self-guided tours?
India does have many famous tourist attractions such as the Taj Mahal and the India Gate. Indian attractions are either related to religion, such as temples, or related to foreign civilizations, such as the greatest Taj Mahal, built by the Mughal dynasty, and the Mughal dynasty as a foreign ruler. Most of India's monuments are not actively built by the original Indian inhabitants. . .
▼小枣君 at the Taj Mahal (please ignore the slag pixel of Nokia mobile phone)
▼小枣君 at the India Gate (unfortunately at the time of renovation)
However, at the time of Xiaozaojun, India was not a place for ordinary people to go on a self-guided tour .
The reasons are as follows:
1 Security situation
The security situation in India is not ideal. It is precisely because of the serious gap between the rich and the poor in India that there are more people living in the bottom of society. Therefore, even if there are religious constraints, it is inevitable that some people will be forced by life and embark on the road of crime.
The bureaucratic system of corruption in India has also affected the police system. The Indian police are indeed very greedy and inaction in our view.
Xiaozaojun was involved in the theft. After being stolen, the police will not take it seriously, nor will they pay attention to it because you are a foreigner (unlike a country). Therefore, if you report the police, you will not report it. Basically, don't expect the police to help you solve the problem.
Another time, the car of the jujube Junbao, in a car accident, saw the police coming from afar, the chartered driver quickly smuggled with the other party. I asked the driver why not let the police handle it? The driver told me that the police would only extort money, and things would only get bigger and bigger, and they would lose more. . .

In addition to theft and robbery, the incidence of rape in India has been high. The horrendous rape and gang rape incidents have occurred.
2 Health environment
The health situation in India is really quite poor. . . In a big city, it may be better. In small and medium-sized cities, the health situation is not optimistic. When it comes to the countryside, it is even more terrible. . .
India's public facilities are very backward, and sanitation facilities are far from meeting the requirements. There are rubbish and garbage dumps everywhere, as well as slums and wandering tents that pass through from time to time. The sewage flows and smells bad.
Let’s take public toilets. I have never seen public toilets in the streets of India. People are solving them everywhere.

You often see locals picking up a small bucket on the side of the road. Well, he is either looking for a place to be convenient. . . Either it’s just finished coming back. . .
The lack of sanitation and the low rate of education have led to a high incidence of various diseases in India.
There are malaria in India. Xiaozaojun has had colleagues and has had dengue fever. Xiaozaojun has been in India for so long, and there is no middle move. It can only be said that it is good luck.
In addition, India is also the country with the largest number of HIV infections in the world, surpassing South Africa .
3 Consumer environment
In India, the overall level of consumption is not high.
However, the gap between the rich and the poor is large, and the level of consumption of the upper class, or the ability to consume luxury, is also quite amazing. Therefore, expensive things are also very expensive.
▼ Xiaozaojun The RMB exchange rate for the Lunar New Year was 1:5, and now it is 1:9. . .
As a foreigner, the most common problem is to kill customers. For many people in the lower Indian society, foreigners are deserving to be slaughtered, and there is no embarrassment at all.
If you want to shop, especially if you don't have a local friend, you must try to go to a regular store to avoid extortion. The blackmail methods of many traders are quite unfounded and ruined.
In summary, Xiaozaojun does not recommend friends who do not have travel experience in overseas poor areas to travel to India on their own, especially female compatriots. If you are a team, you must be fully prepared.
What kind of experience is working in India?
Xiaozaojun has been working in India for three years, and now it is a word - tired.
Participating in overseas projects, the hardships are hard to imagine. Long-term business trips, you need to work hard to adapt to eating habits and other living habits. Also adapt to local climatic conditions and human conditions.
If it is a good area for law and order, sometimes it is necessary to go to some places where the law and order is not good or even turbulent (the anti-government armed guerrillas in the northeastern part of India) must play a spirit of 120,000 points.
In addition to the work and living environment, the most troublesome thing is that Indian customers are very difficult to deal with. As Party B, we have to face all kinds of martyrdoms of our customers, sometimes even roaring. The leadership of Indian clients is generally more arrogant, and some of the underlying leaders are more difficult. We are often tortured to death by some unreasonable needs, and we are entangled in performance indicators.
For example, they are not willing to pay more for the base station, but hope that the higher the index, the better, so we force us to optimize, the project is very tired.
Of course, there are also some customers who are reasonable. I can give full understanding and support at work, and often help in life.

As for the things in India, it is not limited to the length of the text. Interested students can pay attention to the personal public number of Xiaozaojun (zhoushengjun2014), which has travel notes of Indian working life (still in serial...)
I finally finished it. . .
After three days of hard work, I wrote more than 10,000 words. . . Xiaozaojun is also drunk. . .
India is such a magical country with all kinds of anecdotes and completely different lifestyles and values.
In recent years, India has achieved tremendous development and progress like China. Although we are not so good as fast, India still maintains rapid growth while we are gradually slowing down.
China and India still have great differences on the border and other political issues, including conflicts that are still fermenting in the near future.
Xiaozaojun personally feels that as the world's largest and second largest country, and both are nuclear states, any whispering speech is stupid. No matter who is stronger, peace will be the main theme. We are far from the developed countries, and there are still many poor people who need to develop too much. Xiaozaojun has many Indian friends. They are very friendly and kind. Seeing each other is not what we all want to see.
I hope that China and India can continue on the road of peace and friendship.
Ok, just write it here.
