London vs Delhi
As a Delhi guys, these are the biggest cultural shocks I faced when I moved to London.
- In London, foxes are every where. Every morning as soon as I step out of the house I see randomly roaming in the street like cat.
- The entire city completely shuts down after 4 pm on Sunday where as in my city we have late night restaurants even on weekends
- When I say to my colleagues I don’t eat Chicken on particular days of the week I have to spend good 10min explaining them why!!
- “PANTS “ means underwear and “Trousers “ means pants. Unfortunately in a very embarrassing way I was taught this by my colleagues!
- Everyone in the street will ask you “are you alright? “ which simply means hello. When ever I was asked this by some strangers I thought I looked sad or there is something wrong with me
- People eating pizza with Fork and knife. Actually I have never seen anyone eating anything in bare-hands. Even when i go to Indian restaurants I have seen some British eating Dosa with Fork
- The fact that the water you are taking shower in is drinkable is by far my biggest cultural shock
- Using shoes inside a house was totally strange to me. I was raised in India where the culture is to put your shoes off before entering a house. When my host family told me to keep wearing shoes inside their house, I was a bit confused
- No ceiling fans,they just don’t use ceiling fans. They use pedestal fan or air conditioner in summers.
- If guy says I love you, he is not proposing to me in most of the cases!!
