Do Toilets... have improved still it can be a major problem in a big country like India. Though after coming of sulabh sauchalaya and several other initiatives have improved the condition of toilets in India.

What is the best time to come to India.

India can be called as a country of all seasons, the landscape of the country is so huge from Jammu to kanyakumari and the climate is favorable for all the time. The important thing for this answer is which part of India one is visiting. Before visiting that part one must check the weather condition if it is favorable to one, must check if any thing political is happening like elections or any rally is organized during that time.

However in terms of month late October can be the best time to visit India, as it rainy season has just over. However Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and several other places in north can be chilly in December and January and those inviting hotel pools are unheated. 

April and May can be very hot and humid, with daytime highs of more than 100F/40C regularly recorded on the northern plains, though these are good months to visit the Himalayan foothills and the hill stations of Shimla and Darjeeling. High summer is pleasant in Kashmir and Laddakh.

Festival seasons can also be good time to visit like dipawali, Id, Christmas etc, during this time the market is colorful and full of people around. You can buy clothes, have nice food and other things easily as most of the shops are open during this time.

What is the basic dos and don’ts here in India or what are the major rules to be known in India

  1. Temples and religion

Religion is considered as serious business in India; one coming to the India can often misunderstand the belief and happenings around and can be confused with what is happening around, so it is important to understand the religion first before coming to India.

Though the people are not too orthodox or stricken to the old culture of survival.


  1. When entering a temple or mosque, shoes and slippers are not allowed, so better leave them at the place other people have kept their shoes. Some temples – Jain ones in particular – do not allow you to enter wearing or carrying leather articles, and forbid entry to menstruating women. In the southern state of Kerala, most Hindu temples are closed to non-Hindus, but those that aren’t require men to remove their shirts before entering (women must wear long dresses or skirts).


  1. In a mosque, non-Muslims would not normally be allowed in at prayer time and women are sometimes not let in at all. In a Hindu temple, you are not often allowed into the inner sanctum; and at a Buddhist stupa or monument, you should always walk round clockwise.



  1. Dress
  2. Indian people are conservative about dress. Women are expected to dress modestly, with legs and shoulders covered. Trousers are acceptable, but shorts and short skirts are offensive to many. Men should always wear a shirt in public, and avoid skimpy shorts away from beach areas. These rules are particularly important in temples and mosques. Cover your head with a cap or cloth when entering a dargah (Sufi shrine) or Sikh gurudwara; women in particular are also required to cover their limbs. Men are similarly expected to dress appropriately with their legs and head covered. Caps are usually available on loan, often free, for visitors, and sometimes cloth is available to cover up your arms and legs.
  3. Never mind sky-clad Jains or naga sadhus, nudity is not acceptable in India. Topless bathing is not uncommon in Goa although in theory prohibited.
  4. Other possible Rules: though not compulasry but can be avoided
  5. Kissing and embracing are regarded in India as part of sex: do not do them in public. In more conservative areas (ie outside Westernized parts of big cities or tourist enclaves), it is not even a good idea for couples to hold hands, though Indian men can sometimes be seen holding hands as a sign of “brotherliness”. Be aware of your feet. When entering a private home, you should normally remove your shoes (follow your host’s example); when sitting, avoid pointing the soles of your feet at anyone. Accidental contact with one’s foot is always followed by an apology.


  1. Indian English is not so good, but Indian can manage this days.



  1. Meeting people


  1. People meet here with outsiders in a good jester, Indians considers people from outside as god, atithi devo bhao. So most of them will respect you in respect of your case and creed. However one should be cautious here in India while meeting to a stanger.You may find it odd or even intrusive that complete strangers should want to know that sort of thing.


  1. Things that Indian people are likely to find strange about you travelling alone, leaving your family to come to India, so don’t be cautious if some ask you questions like why you are travelling alone, are you married, how many childrens you have, your income etc.
