We Indians take great pride in our country. Be it instantly standing up whenever and wherever we hear the national anthem playing, to never missing an opportunity to deck ourselves up in team India T-shirts, or face paint depicting our flag, we take great joy in celebrating evrything about our country. But what we don’t realize is that for all our pride and honour, we Indians constantly do things which belittle us and our country both!

 

These are the top 5 things we Indians do, that we need to STOP doing right now!

Unnecessarily choosing a paper receipt at the ATM

We all are guilty of this! Whenever we withdraw cash from an ATM machine, we choose the option for a printed receipt without even thinking of the fact that we’ll be throwing them away simply after a glance! The option to opt for the info to be simply displayed on the screen is there for a reason!

Using ‘High Beam’ headlights at night

If you’ve ever seen a car coming towards you with its blinding headlights on, you know what I’m talking about! How difficult is it to simply use the low beam lights, which are pointed downwards?

Scribbling  on public structures

Yes, we Indians are artistic by nature, but that’s what a notebook is for! Scribbling “Layla luvs Majnu” on public walls and buildings might impress your sweetheart(really??), but it just shows a lack of consideration and concern. Imagine if someone carved that on your car with a screwdriver?!

Littering anywhere and everywhere

We complain about our roads being dirty and filled with potholes, but the very next moment, we toss away the empty packet of chips we were having, or casually spit out a mouth full of Paan, at the nearest wall we find! There are actual dustbins placed by roads for this very purpose, people!

Feeling offended about every damn thing

Though a fairly recent trend, we Indians have started getting offended at each and everything we see happening around us! Whether Ranveer-Deepika’s PDA feels offensive to you, or Coldplay’s Hymn for The Weekend, these people don’t owe you a thing, and they certainly don’t need your approval! It’s great to have an opinion, but not that great to shove it down someone else’s throat!
