Indians are great people. I love Indians. They are very happy and very fun, and very
welcoming people even though Indians are poor, many Indians are poor, they're still very
nice, and when you go to Indian, India, the Indians welcome you there, and they're very
happy that you're in their country, and you feel this happiness and it makes you happy,
and it's a great place.

India is full of surprises. When you are in India you see many things that are very shocking
and very strange to your culture. For example, the cow is a very holy animal there. It's part
of the religion so you don't eat meat in India, and the cows are allowed to go free and go
wherever they want, so maybe when you are driving down the street there will be a cow standing
in the middle of the road and you have to drive around him, so this is very, very strange
sight. You'll never see a cow in New York city, but you will see a cow in the middle of
New Delhi city and it's very surprising at first, and maybe another strange site are the
holy men, the Indian Sadus or Indian holy men. They give up everything. They give up their family,
they give up all their belongings. They give up their car, their money, and they just wonder
around the country, from religious site to religious site, and they beg for their food and they
beg for money to take the bus, and they all wear orange, orange robes and many of them have
big long beards and long hair, and they are very distinctive looking, and their very wonderful
people, very kind and very nice, and they're very, their inner strength for their religion
and for life is very strong and you learn a lot from these people, and you learn a lot from India
