India being a diverse country has abundant variety of people and extraordinary cultures. Such a history and then of course, our habit of judging people often brings firm notions about them, stereotyping them to a particular community.
Just like not every Punjabi household is great at making parathas and not every South Indian loves filter coffee. 😀
The fertility of Indian minds often rests in stereotyping and prejudging people. One big contributor to this are Bollywood movies and TV Serials, who unforgiving feed in the ideas to us, and
Here are 10 examples that we thought could share the idea with you:
Fact Check: There are Bengalis, who are strict vegetarians, not even visited Kolkatta once and also celebrate other festivals with more zest than Durga Pujo.
Nope, not all of them are lazing around all day, dancing with a beer bottle wearing floral t shirts and bermudas. Brace for impact; some Goans are vegetarians!
Not all Gujaratis are expert bargainers or express emotions using arara. They do however make lip smacking food!
Accept it! We all have that Jain friend who has experimental cravings and who are much more open-minded and liberal than many of us.
It may come as a shock..brace yourselves..often thought of as Mallu, Madrasis..do NOT always like idli vada rasam dosa. Nor do they walk loaded with gold 24*7!
Guess what? Vada pav? No! Nor do they dance their way to places doing laavni. Tell me one more stereotype and “ata majhi satakli”

Not all of them like MOMOS, nor all of them own a chinese joint somewhere and also, NOT all are dog-eaters. “Bhagwan ke liye“, stop treating them as foreigners!
If I hear one more person calling me “Deekra”, I’ll throw the damn carrom board at them”Carrom ramwanu, juice pivanu … mazza ni life” C’mon!!
Some Rajput do believe in simple and quiet weddings, did’nt know that??? You also didn’t know that not all Rajputs are royalty.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but not all Sardars are fond of dancing or alcohol for that matter! They are however passionate towards food, but then who isn’t !?!
