First of all, even though India is one country, with so much diversity, it is more like amalgamation of multiple smaller countries. There are no standard rules (except the laws), and what is advisable at one place could be competely avaoidable at another.

首先,尽管印度是一个国家,有着如此多的多样性,但它更像是多个小国的融合。没有标准规则(法律除外),在一个地方可取的东西在另一个地方可以完全避免。

Here are a few things I would recommend:

以下是我的几点建议:

Privacy levels are very different. Look at the population density, and you will quickly realize that personal space is much smaller. Don't get offended if someone seems to be interfering with your personal matters. They might not see realize that it is an invasion of your privacy.

隐私级别非常不同。看看人口密度,你会很快意识到个人空间要小得多。如果有人在干涉你的私事,不要生气。他们可能没有意识到这是对你隐私的侵犯。

India is a Foodie's paradise, with its wide culinary variety. Having said that, unless you are used to spicy food, avoid coastal food. Mainland food is not as spicy as coastal food, still is very spicy for someone from Western Europe.
印度是一个美食天堂,它的烹饪种类繁多。说了这些,除非你习惯辛辣食物,否则要避免吃沿海食物。大陆菜不如沿海菜辣,对西欧人来说还是很辣的。

Steer clear of all religious places unless accompanied by local residents. You are much likely to be fleeced or face unwarranted criticism. Offense may be as small as having eaten any non-veg food on the day of visiting a temple.

除非有当地居民陪同,否则避开所有宗教场所。你很可能会被欺骗或面临无端的批评。冒犯可能和在参观寺庙的那天吃了任何非素食食物一样小。

Hire a cab or enroll a driver instead of driving yourself. Haphazard traffic and flouting the traffic rules is more of a norm than exception. Accordingly, punctuality is a luxury that not everyone can afford to observe.

雇一辆出租车或登记一个司机,而不是自己开车。交通比较混乱,不要指望大家都遵守秩序。因此,守时是一种奢侈品,不是每个人都能遵守。

If you are a tourist, you ought to visit the north east, and south west to understand the richness and diversity of Indian culture. If you are traveling on business, you will still be treated like a tourist by many.

如果你是一个旅游者,你应该游览东北部和西南部,了解印度文化的丰富性和多样性。如果你出差,很多人还是会把你当成旅游者。

There are no snake charmers or elephants roaming on the streets. If you happen to come across one though, please share the pics. 🙂

街上没有耍蛇人或大象。如果你碰巧遇到一个,请分享照片

People are usually helpful, except some places, where people are usually rude and arrogant. It is advisable to avoid generalizing or having any pre-conceived notion. Approach people with respect, and you would probably get more help than you could have anticipated.

人们通常乐于助人,除了一些地方,那里的人通常粗鲁傲慢。建议避免泛化或有任何预先设想的概念。尊重别人,你可能会得到比你预期的更多的帮助。

Smalltalk and gossiping is a part of life, and people are usually uninhibited in such matters. You are part of the group if you are around a group; you are part of the group even if you are travelling in the same public transport vehicle and are withing the earshot. You can laugh at a stranger's joke, and even offer unabashed opinions. People are not likely to take offence. That way, it is one of the most OPEN cultures.

闲聊是生活的一部分,人们通常在这类事情上是无拘无束的。你在一个人群小圈子里,你就是这个小圈子的一部分,即使你们乘坐同一辆公共汽车,即使没有被人听到,你也是这个小圈子的一员。你可以嘲笑陌生人的笑话,甚至可以提出毫无羞耻的意见。人们也不会感觉被冒犯。这样,它是最开放的文化之一。

Street food is something you must try. It may not look hygienic, but most likely it would not harm a person with normal (non-fragile) constitution. However, have a taste first to check the spiciness.

街头小吃是你一定要尝尝的。它看起来可能不卫生,但很可能不会伤害一个正常(非脆弱)体质的人。不过,先尝尝看是否有辣味。

Urban pollution level is very high, and you are less likely to see a clear sky, even at night. Rural areas, on the other hand, boast really fresh air and clean sky, except during rains. Do visit some village, and try to make sense of how people live contentedly on such meager family income.

城市污染水平很高,即使在晚上,你也不太可能看到晴朗的天空。另一方面,农村地区除了下雨,还有新鲜空气和干净的天空。一定要去一些村庄,试着弄清楚人们如何以这样微薄的家庭收入满足生活。

You will also see many examples of innovative mindset (commonly referred to as Jugaad), click some pics, and you may very well conduct a session on innovation back home. 🙂 Also, why I didn't stop at 10? Coz 11 is an auspicious number for Hindus. 😉

你也会看到许多创新思维的例子(通常称为Jugaad),点击一些图片,你很可能会在家里举办一个关于创新的会议还有,我为什么不在10点停下来?因为11是印度教的吉祥数字

 


India has the highest no. of vegetarians and many restaurants serve only vegetarian food.

印度的素食者人数最多,许多餐馆只提供素食。

No single state is similar to the other. The food, culture and climate are different

没有一个国家与另一个国家相似。食物、文化和气候各不相同

There is no language called "indian". So, depending on where you are planning to stay, you might have to get familiar with a couple of languages. Although Hindi is the national language, many do not speak or understand it. In the cities, people speak and understand English but in rural areas, the local/state language is spoken.

没有所谓的“印度语”。所以,根据你打算住在哪里,你可能需要熟悉几种语言。虽然印地语是印度的国语,但许多人不说也不懂。在城市里,人们会说和理解英语,但在农村地区,人们讲的是当地/州的语言。

People eat with their hands and it doesnt mean they are dirty. In fact, we make it a point to keep our hands clean since we eat with our hands.

人们用手吃饭并不意味着他们脏。事实上,因为我们用手吃饭,所以我们要保持手的清洁。

Toilet paper will not be available in every place since we use water instead.

卫生纸不会在每个地方都有,因为我们用水代替。

People are friendly which is a nice thing (but be careful as some might misuse and cheat if they know its a foreigner)
You can find animals walking on the road just like you and I do (cows, buffaloes, horses, dogs etc) and dont be scared. They wont harm you unless you do something wrong.

人们都很友好,这是一件好事(但要小心,因为有些人可能误用和欺骗,如果他们知道这是一个外国人)你可以找到像你我一样在路上行走的动物(牛、水牛、马、狗等),不要害怕。除非你做错事,否则他们不会伤害你。
