Now... is India a safe country to be? I am not sure about it as there are many attacks on religious grounds there, especially in the state of Gujarat, Orissa and Uttar Pradesh. Take a look here and here...
On the positive side, what is very inviting is the cost of living. You don't need more than 15 USD a day to happily live thru the day.
Besides, it's important to be aware that most people in this country follow the Hindu and Buddhist religions. In fact, the country is the birthplace of these religions. Having this in mind, you have to be careful about certain things... First of all, cows are holy to Hindus. They believe that there are some 330 million Hindu gods and goddesses in a cow.
What shocks me personally is that women in India can marry at a very young age. Parents choose the right person for their girl much earlier. It must be a person from the highest caste.

The most popular Indian dish is probably curry. In fact, it is popular around the world. You have to use spices in a curry:
- lentils (soczewica)
- ginger (imbir)
- coriander (kolendra)
- Naan bread (płaski chleb drożdżowy z białej mąki)
- spicy potatoes
