Re: Questions for the Indians

Couple of things to ask:
I am wondering about your mythology, what kind of beasts and creatures are prominent in the stories told based in your country?

On a completely different idea; Who are the most famous people you have?(the ones anyone in your country would recognize) Like America has Oprah and Bill Gates and all those other people. Are they rich or sports players or actors or politicians?

Re: Questions for the Indians

Well ,our mythology has the sacred cow,bull,eagle,serpent and many other creatures......but i don't know exactly if they r used to describe our country.......they talk abt the gods.
The most famous people (glad u asked an interesting question) areAmitabh Bachchan,Shahrukh Khan,aishwarya Rai(Actors),Sachin Tendulkar,M.S.Dhoni(cricketers),Sania Mirza(Tennis),Narayan Murthy,Azim Premji(IT),Manmohan Singh,A.P.J.Abdul Kalam(Politicians).

Thanks. And thanks for answering.
I recognize Aishwarya Rai but not the other two actors.
Is that the most popular sport there then? Or is it tied with others.

Are you all into video games like we are in America or aren't they that big a deal? If you are do you get the same ones we do or different ones.

Re: Questions for the Indians

Hi
Shahrukh Khan is an equivalent of Brad Pitt here while Amitabh Bachchan is like Tom Hanks............i m sure u would have understood how they stand here........they have an exxxxxxxxxtttrrrreeeeeeeeeeemmmmmmeeeely huge fan following and are pretty good actors.
Cricket is without doubt the most popular sport here,though tennis is also picking up....it is mainly the Sania Mirza effect u know,but it is for the good
There is a market for video games but not as much as in America.I don't know abt the Video games here cause i am a total zero when it comes to video games.......sorry.
Do ask more questions,i enjoyed answering your questions.
bye

Re: Questions for the Indians

hi ! i am indian too. Nice to know you want to spread awareness about India.
It will help remove the prejudice some people have against us. The other day i was in a mugglenet chatroom and when i told i am from India (i know i shouldnt have) someone told me to go away! How rude is that?!
I used to live in Lucknow till 2 years back and when my father was transferred we moved to NOIDA.(yes Nithari is right across the road ,if you know what i mean)

But you certainly get a lot more items with one dollar than you get with one Rupee.

Re: Questions for the Indians

Oh! I can think of a few questions, but for now I just want to ask this.

I was in Brussels a few weeks back and I was looking through the window shop of this place were you could eat Easter sweets and I recognised one that I've seen in Bollywood movies. In Veera-Zaara SRK takes a bite out of something orange looking and it's all whirled up. What's that called and can anyone tell me what it's made off?

Thanks

That's all right lilyrose. It might be something regional too, but I don't know.

I've seen that bit lots of times, becauseI like to watch the clip of Main Yahaan Hoon. But I try to pay attention when I watch a new movie.

Re: Questions for the Indians

India is a developing country, but spiritually it is advanced.

Though I seriously don't know why the government is hell bent on destroying Shri Ram Setu (Adam's Bridge). For petty votes? This is a 1.75 million year old monument of Lord Ram that they are desecrating.
