This comment is too shy. It's hiding.
The " carry cash everywhere" point is not entirely true . You can transfer money using UPI to anyone , and most people and businesses now accept UPI payments . Nevertheless, you should carry cash just in case someone doesn't accept UPI.

Well I'm a 27 old male from India and half of the things mentioned here is false. This is what I can say from my experience

1. Yeah books are considered holy, so its true
2. WRONG - if you're not from India - Never ever try anything
3. WRONG - Who doesn't like appreciation? Try telling your mom a nice thank you and look how happy she'll be
4. WRONG - might be the Muslims who believe in these things or some pretty old fashioned Hindus.. but never ever saw this in my entire life
5. WRONG - Pointing? Seriously? Don't point it at a person as that'll definitely be rude. Else you can point out directions for sure
6. WRONG - Eh.. India's a digital country - even small vendors use UPI transactions
7. Yeah this one's true, you can only find English speaking people in big cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad and some South Indian cities
8. WRONG - I have never heard anyone saying Namaste in India - maybe they did it in the 20th century. Just stick to your regular Hey Hi Hello
9. Yeah people get uncomfortable seeing PDAs. But again you can do it in big cities
10. Yeah it's probably for your safety too. Also, wearing indecent clothes is not allowed in most religious places. Again no issues in big cities
