Indian girls are LOUD!

Er…no offense to any of the ladies but I’m sorry, this is something that gets me annoyed every single time I get on the bus for groceries on my way home from work.

I guess its fair game to state that we as Indians are known for our ‘social’ nature; we chat with perfect strangers on trains and busses, play games and sing songs during fun college trips, even play games that involve singing songs and the like; but I think its only right that living in a foreign land means showing a bit of respect for the local culture.

In this case; the fact that the only things Germans are fond of on public transport are reading or staring out at the window with the earphones plugged in.

Anyway, every time I take the bus – the 72 towards Russelsheim – I almost feel like I’m back in India the moment I step in.
This bus is half full of girls (alright, women!) chatting away non-stop in Hindi, usually with a Bollywood song playing in the background from someone’s I-wanna-flaunt-it mobile phone. More often than not, there’s one member of the party stuck in the middle of the bus, but not that this stops these girls (women, okay!) from shouting out to them halfway across the bus, as if the rest of us were stone deaf or something.

And I’m no expert, but I'm guessing people think they can be loud just because apparently no one else understand a word of Hindi.
Well I’ve got news for them:
People know exactly what they mean because, though I didn’t wanna say it this way, the Hindi (or Tamil) we speak, is so far out from the original and has so many English words that anyone can get a fairly good idea of what’s going on.

I mean come on, when you point to someone and say,
Dhek, uski eye color blue hai”,
…it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure what you’re talking about!

The height of this fiasco is reached when the bus gets to the stop of their hotel and some of them realize they’re already there only when the first half of the party is already outside, and then jumps back in to shout out to the rest to get off. Seriously, I’ve seen circus clowns less hilarious than this!

I think that just because we’re a social lot doesn’t give us the right to abuse upon those of others – and create a thoroughly negative impact on our culture in the process.

I’d also like to think of this as social service, so in case you know someone who’s loud, I please suggest that you print this out, and leave it on their desk or someplace they’d see it.

Particularly  if they happen to work in the Avionics Training Center in Kelsterbach and take the RMV 72 to Mercure Wings Hotel, Raunheim at 5:42PM everyday.

I’d really appreciate if they could read this.J

hahahaha ... true bro ... but i think u mite have done injustice to our sweet heart of neighbors... coz i know for a fact that both the Indian and the paki chicks (girls , women ..watever man ...) are equally loud ....
one of my friends gf was a paki and another was an indian ... and trust me ... both of them had no idea when to lower their voices as well as when to talk Hindi... bloody hell .. half the scots in Glasgow knew Hindi but these dumb idiots dint know that ...

ps : i m sure , noor , if u check out (not literally =P ) these chicks ... u will find that they are of the German or European born Indians or Paki chicks ... not the ones which are from our place !

no offence to the ladies who read this ... but i was just narrating from my own personal experience with not just 2 girls ... but rather a whole bunch of them !

Over acting girls !

Yeah, loads of ppl here speak Hindi as well.
And lol at the "check them out" :D

Glad you got the point :)
Hope the ones on my bus do...
And you're welcome; wonder if you'll return the favor?

I guess in some way, it IS overacting. Somehow, these girls think its 'cool' to have a song play on the loudspeaker from a phone.
