23 Crazy Stories About India! – The Not Always Right World Tour!

, | Right | August 15, 2020

Dear readers,

It’s time to continue the Not Always Right world tour! Last time, we visited The Philippines, and before that Brazil! Today, to coincide with Indian independence day, we’re visiting India! (Duh!)

India is a HUGE country, with cultures and sights as diverse as one can expect with a population of 1.3 billion people. The music, the sights, the cuisine, and the film industry (Bollywood, baby!) are well-known and celebrated all over the world, and we challenge anyone to not find one example from that list they don’t like.

We’ve gone through our archives to find 23 stories about India, set in India, or about people who really need to know where India is on a map. We hope our continued world tour helps fight ignorance, celebrate cultures, and give you a great time while you pour some Darjeeling and settle in for a fun read!
