You know you are an Indian ...

You know you are an Indian at heart, if you:

- Have western food at work using fork and knife, but deep inside long to savour rice-curd, dosa-sambar or roti-daal with your fingers

- Prefer lassi or payasam to pudding

- Touch your elders’ feet as a habit that you do without thinking

- Groan when power goes down unexpectedly, but do nothing about it, and leave it to Fate and the Government

- Groan if your train is 9 hours late, but realise that nothing can be done about it

- Leave your shoes outside when you step into a house

- Crossed your teens admiring the ways of the West, only to find in your middle age that there is nothing as sweet as Home.

Interesting thoughts. Many will not agree to all of them. But yes, some of the things that you have mentioned do describe what being an Indian means.

Of course, this doesn't mean that if you are an Indian you *have to* adhere to these :)
Just my thoughts!
