After so much time in India, it seems I am turning Indian. It's the small things I catch myself doing or someone points out to me. But I'm not the only one. The longer they stay in India, the more I see many expat friends changing. Immersing yourself in a strong, unchangeable culture like India means that you'll inevitably change some habits to fit in.
In some publications you'll see India portrayed as perfect, clean, and full of incredibly nice locals there to help you travel. Others like mainstream news say it's a no-go zone and imply you'll basically be raped upon exiting the airport. Neither of these drastic views is the truth!
