An Indian can adopt any culture they want to, but no one can adopt the quirky desi-ness of an Indian. Being Indian is more than parampara and anushasan; we'd prefer Bollywood to Hollywood and Sunny Leone to Pamela Anderson. Let's find out the desi-ness quotient in you!

1. After an Indian meal, you ask, "mukhvaas kidhar hai yaar?"

A large Indian meal has to end with mukhvaas!

2. Barista and Starbucks are all good, lekin barsaat ki mausam main toh cutting chai hi chahiye.

It just brings back memories, and that kadak aadrak chai is just perfect for the weather.

3. 'Sale' and 'Free' are your favourite words!

Say the words 'Free', 'Discount' or 'Sale and see the glow on an Indian face. These words are the Indian aphrodisiac.

4. Watching India play cricket on the TV set with Indian jerseys and a bowl of snacks (and sometimes even the flag painted on your face).

It’s high time that India officially announces cricket as their national sport. We all know how big the IPL is for the Indians. 

5. Anything is possible because you are the King/Queen of Jugaad!

Quick solutions and thinking is in our DNA, we want instant results by doing the minimum. We are always looking out for some jugaad to turn from rags to riches.

6. Abuses in your mother tongue are the best stress buster.

No we don't mean what we say! If we are tired, we just wanna abuse the f*ck out of everything - everyone is a ch*t*y*a or g**nd*!

7. Have something sweet before starting something new.

It could be your birthday, a new job, an exam or anything new or challenging, you will see a bowl of sweet dahi before you leave the house. A desi knows that it's the ultimate #aashirwad!

8. Consider it bad luck if a cat crosses your way.

You are totally desi if a black cat (or sometimes just a cat) crosses your path and you will be willing to wait for an eternity before someone else passes that way and cuts the line. #Likeseriouslygrowup

9. Closing your eyes and touching forehead, lips, chin, chest every time you pass by a temple.

It is an involuntary movement that we do when we walk past our temples. We cannot move ahead without offering our respect #desiculture.

10. No matter how much you despise the country's condition, you still love living in India.

You can go anywhere in the world, but India is your home! The chaos, disorder and diversity, we are just too used to it, infact we need that little bit of insanity!

I'm completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
