Quoting Utrecht

Wow, so the english among others are to blame for the negative aspects.....I did know that....but now that I do, things have been cleared up really

Shang... may have a point, utrecht. I dont think we can discount the damage colonialisation(excuse spelling) has done to countries. The aftermath of it continues for centuries.

masala chai on every corner, great indian food,

What is the food like, in Delhi Wouter?
It was fantastic, in Mumbai, but I have heard, it is different, in every region. I heard, that India is as diverse as Europe.

its very good!! never try vindaloo, though....that's too damn spicey. i still feel it when i think about it. in the morning i ate puri baji which is very good and u don't need to eat until dinner. puri baji is a sort of mix of potatoes (and it seems a lot of fat) and spices and sauce. u eat it with oily chapatis. very good but very fat. also lassi is great, its a kind of curd drink with good taste (also with salt and other spices). and ofcourse the chai!!! on every streetcorner. never had better tea then in india;).

Quoting debarata

please end this quarrel of pluses and minuses .. every country has them . Its more important to know what are we doing to eradicate them.

Hello Debarata

I think it is a discussion, rather than a quarrel. It is interesting to know about all aspects of countries.

Quoting Ron25

Wouter,

As a new Contributor i have been advised that i should'nt swear, or use inflammatory or derogatory words here.But, as a Travel Guru along with Utrecht you have done that exactly what should be done and gone scot free.

Shrinagesh gave a picture of the GDP figures wherein India was the Richest nation of the world till 1800.Truth always hurts and Gurus have started swearing.Presume Netherlands is a perfect country with no flaws.Probably Tigers roam around there and the nation is free of diseases of any kind.Netherlands invaded India in 19th century looking for a pie of her wealth but now Tatas have taken over your Corus factories.

Pl try to understand that being Poor is no crime but to look down on the poor of the world who bear the brunt of many contemporary challenges shows poverty of understanding.

Those who moderate this Forum must ensure that no nation be abused with adjectives and epithets and irrelevant sentences!
Let us discuss factually and express our opinions on soft malice less words. And Racism must'nt find a place here and Gurus must set an example.

Ron

I dont think Wouter and Utrecht were being rascist. They were just teasing Shring..., because he was being a bit over the top, with his patriotism.

Quoting Ron25

Earlier Woe had taken on Mel and what followed
was deleted.

Ron, I dont know what u are talking about.
Wouter and I have always got along, with each other.
There was something deleted, in a thread, but that was not because Wouter said anything bad, to me.

And then there is corruption, a big gap between rich and poor and poaching tigers.....great;)
But I guess India has a lot to offer anyhow, I should go there soon

Does anybody know, it that caste system is still going?
Or is it a thing of the past?

Mel

I am no expert Mel, but I believe the caste system is still very much a part of Indian society.

Thanks Sam.
I think I will read about it, if I can find something about it, on the internet. I would like to know exactly how it effects society in India.
Or maybe some Indians reading would explain it, to me.

hi mel. i have to watch out what i say (for the oversensitive souls out here). but the caste system in India is still present. not as much as in the past but its still there. especially in rural areas its common. also the dalits (or untouchables) are still excisting. they still have less rights and do the filthy work (mostly clean toilets and pick up garbage). in very strict societies a dalit shadow may not even come over the food of a brahman (highest caste). if that happens the food is not "clean" anymore and should be throwed away.

Wouter
Would u know a site on the internet, that gives information, about the caste system?
