This talks about the usual suspects. This is a newcomer to India and he finds the peculiarities of living in India to be rather funny and describes them with a typical American patronising tone.

But I think no country is perfect and you have to adapt yourself to the peculiarities of that particular country.

I am sure Amol would be familiar - far more so than me - with the parts of New York City or Harlem that he should avoid going to at night since he would be mugged at gunpoint otherwise.

I am sure there are many cities in America where lawlessless is a problem: Chicago, Atlanta, etc.
