The Republic of India
(Republic of India) is a democratic state located in South Asia. In terms of population, India is in second place (after China) among all countries of the world, and in terms of occupied area – on the seventh place. The total area of the state is 3.3 million square meters. km (almost the entire Hindustan peninsula).
Neighbors with India in the northeast Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, China; on the east side – Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh; in the west – Pakistan. Also, India is not offended by water: in the east
the Republic is washed by the Bay of Bengal, in the south by the Indian Ocean, and on the west by the Arabian Sea. In addition, India is rich in mountain elevations, the largest of which are the Himalayas, Eastern and Western Ghat, Vindhya, Patkai (Eastern Highlands), Aravali, Satpura. In addition, the Indian Republic has a lot of national parks and reserves, which speaks of the diversity of the plant and natural world.
The capital of the country is New Delhi, the monetary unit is rupees. 15 languages of the world are recognized as state languages, and English is the second official language of the state.
India is filthy, a lot of poor and no civilization.
Each country has its own characteristics and it is with its individual qualities that a particular country is famous. So in India, the main distinguishing feature is that there is no pompous “show-off”, it is as it is. Yes, there you can meet a lot of beggars and the streets may not seem as clean as many people used to see, but, nevertheless, the magnetism of this country is not in appearance, but in the internal state. To understand this, it is necessary to look “into the soul” of the country, but her soul is bright and carries in itself wisdom and kindness. Not for nothing there are so many temples, and the people honors age-old traditions and fears God, and hence civilization has its own, special. But to understand this, unfortunately, not everyone can.
In India, food does not deteriorate.
It just does not have time to spoil, because it is customary to cook only for a specific meal, and not for a week ahead.
Before you go to India, you need to get vaccinated.
It is not necessary to vaccinate, because India is not one of the countries that must be vaccinated when visiting. But, already being in the country, elementary precautions should still be taken: carefully watch what you eat, do not contact with unfamiliar animals and insects. When visiting mountain peaks pay attention to your health, as the higher in the mountains – the more difficult it is to get used to the surrounding environment.
Monkeys living in India hate the Hindus.
No matter how strange it may sound, it’s true. If they still let the tourists in, then at the sight of the Indian they begin to hiss and grit their teeth. How do they know that next to them the Hindu – remains a mystery (probably, by smell). The reason for this hatred is the fact that the Hindus offend them, and, just so, from nothing to do. It is not uncommon for local children to start throwing stones at animals as fun, accompanied by loud laughter.
Hindus do not like walking in shoes.
Yes, indeed, at every opportunity, the local population strives to throw off sandals. And they are always prepared barefoot, since according to the belief, being in shoes is easy to attract evil spirits.
From Indian food often a stomach aches and you can even poison, in general, complete unsanitary conditions.
Mostly it depends on how you observe the rules of hygiene. If you eat not in cheap eateries, but in a more or less decent establishment, and drink water only from bottles, and often wash your hands, everything will be in order.
In India, very spicy food.
Hindus, of course, like to eat various spices and seasonings. But, as a rule, all this in moderate amounts, or seasonings are served separately from the main dish.
Pepper in India plays the role of antiseptic.
This antibacterial reception for indigenous residents was known back in ancient times. Therefore, without pepper (however, as without other spices), there is more than one dish.
In India they eat with their right hand, because, from the religious point of view, the left one is considered unclean.
There they not only eat with their right hand, but also greet, take / give something with its help. And this is explained not only by religious attitudes. It turns out that it is not customary to use toilet paper, instead of it you use ordinary water. All manipulations are done with the left hand. In addition, the Hindus wash their feet and are trained only with the help of the left hand.
A cow in India is considered a sacred animal.
This is an unreasoned truth. This animal there is equated to the status of “mother” and it is sacred. That is, she has such maternal qualities as kindness, modesty, wisdom and tranquility. In addition, she feeds her people all her life with her milk. Therefore, God forbid someone to yell in India on a cow, or, worse still, slaughter it, then eat it.
In Goa it is very dangerous to swim in the sea, as there are poisonous snakes and rays, from the bite of which you can die.
Controversial statement. It’s dangerous to swim in any sea. Everywhere you can meet sea snakes, poisonous fishes, stingrays. But it is difficult to name them deadly poisonous. Their bite simply can cause an allergic reaction, and it depends on the sensitivity of the person how he can transfer this, to put it mildly, trouble. In addition, the sea is dangerous not only for animals, but also for such phenomena as tides, rocks, currents. Therefore, while observing the well-known safety rules (drunk do not swim, do not touch unfamiliar animals) bathing in the sea will bring only pleasure and a whole storm of joyful sensations.
