True Facts about Indian returning from overseas
When NRIs return to India after a long stay overseas they speak and behave as if they are living in Western countries !! We are sure majority of those who ever got in touch with NRI friends/relatives may have experienced one or more of the following fun facts !

  1. They try to use credit card in road-side Hotel.

  2. They drink and carry mineral water and always speak of health. (proving to be very health conscious).

  3. They sprays deodorant such so that they don’t need to take a bath.

  5. If you come across an NRI, notice the way he/she speaks. A sudden change of words will leave you off guard and blinking! Words like – yep for yes, nope for no, yogurt for curds, cab for taxi, cookies for biscuit, and much more.

  6. Their made-up accent is something which is uncontrollably funny. NRIs who return to India have the made-up accents at least for a week or more, just to inform the others that theave studied or worked in the United States or any other foreign country.

  7. The change of sports is one of the most annoying things only an NRI does in India. The love for hockey and cricket cannot match up for their love of NBA and soccer.
