  • From the Indians that I've met they seem pretty nice. I like their culture. They also have really good food.
  • in what respect? i have many friends from india who live here in northern ireland and they are fascinating
  • There like everyone else, some are great, some are arses
  • I seem to be an official part of their group at school, which is The Ethnic Kids Group. I've came to the conclusion that it's because of the slight language barrier.
  • In general. I think that they do I.T. better, and that they make the best cricket players.
  • Some are nice and some are not. they are just like eveyone else!
  • Many of my closest friends are from India. The majority of my co-workers are from India. I find them to be much the same as everyone else. I love the colorful clothing, rich culture, and delicious food that they have. I'm fascinated by their religious beliefs and customs. Edit: Now that my divorce is final and there are no possible legal ramifications, I can add that my partner (and now fiance) is Indian.
  • I like India. I want to visit one day. Also, I don't know to many from there but I am very sure that they are no different than we are.
  • One, in particular, is the most awesome man on Earth. I love him with all of my heart, soul, and being. Words will never be able to express how I feel about him.
  • Just people - and I like people.
  • Some very dear friends of mine showed me a wonderful time in Mumbai. Other fine friends were gracious to me in Mysore. Very sincere people and quite generous. I've seen examples of some nasty Indians, too, but that's no surprise. Humanity is similar all across the world. swabby
  • I am a Indian & I'm proud of being an Indian.But I just wanna tell u this I think every people,no matter from where they belong in this world is really good.It's just the situations that make people bad.I don't know from where u belong I just wanna invite u 2 India.So come here and see how we are?
  • Great doctors
  • i have found folks from India patient, well mannered- great people. The converstaions have been insightful, edifying... Other than that I really dont classify peeps based on origin. Skin,eye and hair color mean nothing. You got sumthin to offer that make me grow as an individual- lets talk.
  • I think of them the same as I do any other nationality. They talk with an accent, but other than that, just like people from all other countries, including my own (USA) they are just people like everyone else!
  • Most of them are pretty much like anyone else, The food is great . I adore Saris and other Indian clothing the Jewel like colours are beautiful. A Sari worn correctly is so elegant. They have a gentle culture and belief on the whole although since the name SINGH means Lion a lot of men were warriors or could be. Second generation Indians are usually hard working in schoola nd do very well . The percentage of University entrance is higher per head than thier English counterparts. On the whole a very hard working forward looking race Everyone in the family gets together to help one another until all have the success that the hard work and application deserves. I have been to India and it is an incredible place of much beauty and diversity as well as harshness and poverty
  • I work with a couple ladies from India, and they are the nicest people in the world! There is this guy that tutors at my school he's indian and he can teach me things better than half of my professors. Most people from India I've came in contact with are great intellegent people!
  • I think some of them are strange, as far as their aroma. But I think you've got to get to know some of them, before you judge them. Plus their culture is totally different from ours.
  • One of my boyfriend's house mates at university was Indian, he was a proper top guy. I met his whole family on graduation day and they were all really, REALLY nice people. My next door but one neighbours are Indian, they're nice too. He's a doctor and when I was little if I got ill in the middle of the night he'd get up and come round and see me.
  • Some of my best friends are from India. these people are frugal, very frugal. very tight with their money. People from India are warm and loving.
  • This is what I think of people from India & Pakistan based on my experiences of living in a European country that has a very large Asian community especially in the area that I live in. That a very large majority of Asians are as racist as the white man can be. They see both black and white people as lazy, but are more hostile and openly rude to Black people and frequently see black people as violent thieves/criminals. Before anyone tells me I am ignorant or I don’t know what I am talking about, I have been told “that all white people are lazy“ directly to my face by Asians on many occasions and nor do they actually hide that this is what they think. Although the vast majority of Indians/Pakistani’s would never show their disdain for lazy white people directly to you, they believe it just the same. In addition, a very large number of Indian & Pakistani men really do think western women are easy, sluts, & whores. Despite professing to have high moral standards, such morality and respect apparently does not apply to Western women. So do not be surprised if you encounter a certain level of sexual harassment even if you are conservatively dressed and minding your own business. Over many years, I have repeatedly experienced Indian/Pakistani shop owners attempting to deliberately keep my change after a purchase, that they would shut the draw and expect me to just walk away. Well, I didn’t and I won’t and as far as I am concerned that action indicates a deliberate action to steal from someone. Hence, I no longer frequent these shops and only do as a last resort. I would rather walk a mile and give my money to a national chain store than give it to someone who looks down on me and will attempt to steal from me. As for what NMPC said, you may not like what he wrote and you may think he is racist, but I have seen and have experienced to a lesser degree some of the points he made, as well as several other members who have had similar experiences. If you had asked me this question 10 years ago and I saw what I have written, I would have thought the person to be racist. But from first hand experience, there is a difference between having friends and acquaintances who are of a different culture to your own than to actually live amongst a mass of people from a different culture and forming your opinion based on living in or amongst that culture. I suggest before you accuse us of being racist that you live it, and then come back and we can then have a chat. There are definitely good and decent Indians and I have been privileged to have known two of them, but too many bad experiences with Asians has made me very cautious about getting involved with them in the future.
  • I really like the Indians. I'm a software developer, and of course there are lots of Indian software developers here and overseas that I've had the privilege to work with. I've found them almost always to be warm, friendly, generous, and intelligent. They have an easygoing spirit and a sense of humor that I'd like to see more widely in the world. India is at the very top of my "countries I'd like to visit one day", in part because of my Buddhist orientation, and in part because of my experience with these wonderful immigrants in the U.S.
  • That they are human beings just like anyone else, and thus I should base any judgments/opinions on the individual, not on Indians in general.
  • I can only speak from my own experiences while travelling through India for a month. It was one of the most friendly countries I've seen. People would just talk to me anywhere. Their way of speaking English seemed so quaint! Very polite, like they were still in the 1920's LOL On the other hand, and again, this is my true experience, I've never encountered so many con artists in my life either. It seemed like every second person was lying to me in order to get money. It became very tiring and like a lot of travellers there, I became jaded by it. I got the strong impression that many there felt that I should feel responsible for their plight, and that they were unfairly stereotyping me as a rich westerner. I loved India and would go back there in a second, and on the whole, I think Indian people are a very pleasant and handsome race.
  • I have worked with several people from India and Pakistan and think they are very nice and interesting people. I would like to visit the region some day also. I think the architecture is amazing as well as the customs.
  • They are wonderful people. I have a co-worker that i have know for 5 years.I just love there language and she is a wonderful friend.They have beautiful customs.
  • Nice people on the whole - and make great food!
  • I'm an Indian. And we are a basically very cultured and peace loving people. We have a rich culture to boast of. Though we are a land of diversity of many sorts, we are united when need arises. We have high family values. We are religious minded and most of all we value our guests. We are hospitable and sincere. But as times have changed, there are a lot of influences being smothered on our younger generations, the west is a big attraction to our kids and strains of varied cultures have seeped into our midst. But that does not change the basic Indian beings. No doubt there are a lot of unwanted elements amongst us that tarnish the Indian image, but that happens in very country and every race on earth. But we are humans too.
  • They seem nice enough. I have known a couple of doctors that were Indian. Very intelligent individuals - and nice looking, too.
  • ByzantineAngel - I am throwing the gauntlet to you. I will believe your sentiments and opinions hold good iff you visit both Pakistan and India (again) and let us all know if you feel, see, perceive any difference. If there is NO difference being in both places, if you see no difference in the society, social culture, norms, practices then I will agree to whatever you've said. However, if your experiences arent the same, then I suggest you rephrase your answer to indicate specific nationality and not lament everyone in the same measuring scale. If you chose to not do the above, then you loose all your credibility behind this answer. How does this sound?
  • Which one?
  • Well, I guess I have to say that I think of them as coming from India-at least until they tell me there name. This is a stupid questian-you aint getting points for it ya know...
  • I like people from India. Very warm. Nice sense of humor. Spiritual almost mystical at times. Good minds for logic and abstraction. Not obsessed with materialism. Very trustworthy and not inherently violent. These are my impressions of people from India.
  • They are nice looking people and they cook the BEST cultural dishes. I JUST came from my indian co-worker's house for some dolmases, tabbouleh, hummus(it's kinda dry, but good with the flat bread), and beef/vegtable stuffed pitas.(I hope I spelled the foods right)
  • I guess they're like everyone else except that they tend to be very conservative.
  • I think they're Indians - not bad cricket team, and like any other ethnic group or culture: some good some bad, some beautiful, some ugly, some poor, some rich, some really smart and some just smart asses....just folk
  • They tend to be much more polite and accepting than most of the people in Britain, trouble is I see awful lot of these kind of people being taken advantage of mainly by British in the working environment.
  • Living in Connecticut, most of the Indian people I have met have been medical professionals. It seems so lucky to know someone who grew up on the other side of the world but who speaks English. Like people from everywhere, some have been kind, deep and intelligent. Others have been difficult to get along with.
  • Be proud of what you do in life, rather than a preset background which you did not create.
  • They always seem to call me when I sitting down to eat...why is that?
  • Hard working people, decent and honest people.
  • I live in the UK, we have many, many Indian Folk here, they are respectful people infact more respectful in our area than people from other cultures, they pay there taxes work very hard and dress modestly. At least they say "hello"
  • I have a lot of friends from who are middle eastern. They are extremely bright people(great doctors). I have a lot of respect for Indian people and the Indian culture in general.
  • Yes. god does love all people - even those who blow up innocent people. He weeps for them and their victims and disapproves so much of their actions that He was willing to suffer death Himself to affect change. His love is absolute and unconditionaly. It cannot be subject to the behaviors, attitudes, or beliefs of people. He loves because He is love. Evil and hatred cannot diminish His love. It simply IS.
  • I'm a bit curious to know why was this question asked? You selectively choose India, you surely must have a reason? And no, I'm not from India. I don't mean anything offensive or rude, just curious. I might have a better understanding on how to answer this question.
  • nothing different really
  • Well they're human, and I like all humans.
  • I've traveled to India 3 times on business trips. The hotel staff (5* of course) there are superb. Very service oriented people. They cater to meet all your needs. Every detail is not forgotten. The milk for your tea is warmed too. They are soooo polite. Then you step out of your sheltered luxury hotel compound, and you see tents and hundreds of poverished children, like on National Geographic photos, mothers holding a baby knocking on your taxicab window begging for money. I heard from a co-worker that these babies are "loaners"--they make more money if holding a baby. I haven't seen this yet, but I also heard that some deliberately amputate an arm or a leg so they can make more money while begging. It is really a sad situation. I asked an Indian man why there are so many Indian doctors. He said medical schools over there are very inexpensive, practically free. Many folks train over there, then set up practice in the U.S. where they can make more $. Can anyone train at a med school in India? Or do you have to have dual citizenship or something?
  • its developing in all aspects...they have rich culture and traditions but lately heard that new generations are not following it, not too sure. Also heard they are getting attracted to Western culture and style, and thru IT sector booming, India is gettin' more and more open minded. only thing I believe it needs to develop is the political system and take serious measures to beautify each areas by keeping it clean and maintaing it.
  • Feather or dot?
  • I personally know someone from India. I find their customs and culture to be rich in traditions and their whole outlook on life to be fascinating.
  • It is the original tradition of India having this folks movies and music too till this time
  • The overwhelmingly majority are gentle decent people that mind their own business, achievers and generally well educated. Although a Hindu majority nation, their majority political party leader is Catholic, prime minister is Sikh, past President was Muslim and the head of their military program was also Muslim. India's richest man also was a Muslim, Azim Premji. Talk of diversity and acceptance! But I guess that is what Hinduism teaches these people. Even in America, these are some of the most non-controversial people. For a country with incredible opportunity, islam is coming in as a big problem. The madrassas spawn hate of India in India and muslims have not generally taken advantage of the opportunities. The other is the Gujaratis(they own most of those motels) and marwaris - you can bet these are the most unscrupulous people you can meet from India. The younger generations amongst Gujaratis are slowing getting out of their ways and getting career focused. On the whole a gentle race.
  • One of my doctors and one of my daughter's doctors are Indian, and I love them both. One of my grandmother's neighbor's and his mother were Indian, and we loved them too. I don't have any other experience with people from India.
  • Caste system... need I say much more?
  • I have a really good friend from India and she is wonderful. I can't speak for all of them, but she's a true friend!
  • I've known many Indians and they have been very nice people. One of my very best friends is Indian and we used to do everything together, her family and my family would go camping for days and just have a good time:-)
  • As good or as bad as any other human being from other Countries. Human nature is the same by birth, but circumstances change their behaviour.
  • I think that they're from India. What else am I supposed to think? They're human just like everyone else.
  • thnx guys for the positive points on INDIA !! I am proud to be an INDIAN !!
  • My wife said she had bad experience with them. I never had any issues with them in the past until very recently. I used to work in a building that had about 99% Indians but never had any issues whatsoever. Recently, I ran into some people that changed my mind. They can't speak and understand English well. And they got real mad and have all their brothers turn against you. I am Asian and when I came to this Country I spent a great deal of time learning and practicing English especially my accent. Even took a class in College to teach how to pronounce properly. Why can't they understand that people are having a hard time listening to them with their accents? Just slow down a bit and take the time to pronounce the words. Also their communication and listening skill are poor. What about people who are hard of hearing like myself? We want to hear them but we can't hear them well. Whoever is reading this, keep that in mind! You know what people say with someone is having too much ego but not enough brain power. I notice Indians in India are harder to understand. Remember Dell used to have an Operations in India, and later on they pulled it back because people who called in for computer supports were very unhappy. What are your experiences?
  • V. good people :)
  • I'm an Indian. And we are a basically very cultured and peace loving people. We have a rich culture to boast of. Though we are a land of diversity of many sorts, we are united when need arises.

  • We Rock :)
  • They need to stay in India and now run here.
  • They are cultured people not like uncultured people.
