Indian Stereotypes in Kazakhstan

What do hou know about the people from India or book or culture or actors/actress? Well, we both know that the cows are sacred, or they have many gods ( 333 Million Gods ), they are always pictured like a poor people who want to have an “american dreams” like in the movies “Who wants to be a millionaire? (Slumdog Millionaire)” or “The Guru”, specially this second movie supports the notion that India is known all over the world as the land of Kama Sutra.

That’s why India attracts a lot of stereotypes, much to the annoyance of its citizens. Yet, India truly is a country of contrasts and contradictions. It’s often said about India that where something is true, the opposite will also be true. I have made a compilation of all the questions I encountered while living in Kazakhstan for 3 years.

2.Do you pray to Cows ?

10. Is my wife 13 years old ?
11.Did I read Kamasutra ?
12.Do I sell Indian Tea ?
13.I look like Raj Koothrappali from Big Bang Theory
14.Slumdog Millionaire is true story ?
15.Are girls kidnapped and raped everywhere ?

16. What is your religion ? Muslim?
