    Hi Miss daisy....

    Well India is the largest democracy in the world...with a population of 1.1 billion...that means every sixth person in the world is an Indian.

    Here are some facts about the name of India I had already posted..

    so my question here...when indian people carry a tray and circle it infront of their faces, is this a hindu ritual or an indian custom?

    in all indian movies, I find them eating these little crispy snacks ..they's called golgappa or panipuri and they're filled with water,onion and potatoes..

    here's an article for more information
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panipuri

    my question here, can the panipuri be sweet or it just with onion and potatoes?
    and also, in the movie rab ne bana di jodi, they were dipping it n a liquid, what is it?

    it's only a matter of personal favorites I don't know where you're from, but I think that the arab nation in general is somehow connected with India..history, culture and so on

    Well i believe that after middle east the most beautiful place is India
    I have the same interests about India as you
    I also believe that are some connections between India and arab world,til now i found language being appropriate somehow.
    I know that hindi language is formed 60% from Sanskrit,about i believe that can be written whit arabic letters.I am sure there are plenty of words of commune use and than because:
    1 In India are muslims too so appear in hindi language words like (Mashaallah,Allahmiya...etc)
    2 Hindi dialect have words from urdu,which borrow the words from arabic(i believe farsi was the language which connect the).

    I don't know about the traditions.India is very rich in traditions(Holy festival,Diwali festival,Jodi festival....etc) and about the arabic traditions i believe they are coming from Islam.

    And the most commune thing are the girls ...VERY HOOOOT...in every way

    I think India and the Arab world are common in being conservative too...so that's why the two nations feel related..generally speaking, there isn't overly revealing clothes and stuff..

    one day, just one day, I will go there!!

    hi al habibi, we seriously need to switch places

    marina, don't worry, you're actually benefiting the most..when I go to india I'll take you with me and when al habibi comes to the middle east you can go with him/her

    al-habibi: where do you live in india?
