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.
