8. Puffery Nature for the Show Offs
We tend to develop this nature as we grow… A far far relative house visit. A normal conversation sitting in the living room will do. But no! They want to show us the whole house. Their Smart TV of 2 lakhs and their interior of the home which obviously cost them some millions! Not to forget their toiletries!
Mind: Stop it! I don’t want to see… I don’t want to know the cost of everything!
Actual words: Impressive! You have decorated the house so graciously…
9. Going to the religious places
I don’t want to. I am an atheist! Doesn’t matter… If it’s a family thing you gotta do it! Going to at least one religious place on a trip is mandatory!
Actual words: 😐
10. Expectation of return gifts
Invited for a party? They definitely might be giving something in return!
Mind: Oh! That person is very rich… must have arranged some great return gifts!
Actual words: Your party was great even with no return gifts! We usually do not like people giving return gifts, What’s the point? Right?
These are some awkward Indian Obligations or customs that one cannot deny !
