I have a confession. It's me. I started those rumours. But look how happy she is now!

rana pratap says:

Thank you for being honest about India. Really honest review. All these rumor are true but for small town and villages.

Panday Amit Ray says:

Indians believe in "Atithi Devo Bhava" which means a guest is like a god. It's in culture to treat every guest with at most respect. So you will find amazing hospitality in India almost in every part of country.

Panday Amit Ray says:

International media never wants to portray India good specially BBC. They all want to show India poor, with slum & miserable. This is true but it's only one part of story but it's not all that is.
India was the richest country in the world before britishers came & one of the poorest when they left. They looted everything. When every so called "developed" country started to build their nation, Indians were not allowed to do so & Indian resources were used for british fulfilment. And after all these years, BBC and other news media can't take that India has started to do better on their own.

Have you ever tried filter staws in countries with questionable tap water?

Sorry if I missed with before but did you live in Delhi? How bad was the pollution? I’m thinking of moving there for work but have a few options. I have been there for 2 days but it’s not enough to make an informed judgment

Prashant Mathur says:

India Well defined in both Vlogs. Thanks :))

alteredillusions100 says:

Great video! Thank you for clearing up a lot of those misconceptions. However, the one that surprised me the most was the one about defecation in India. BecauseI've seen a few TED talks from Indians about the subject.

The Sad Traveler says:

Love this video, very helpful breaking down myths!

Adesh Shetty says:

I am so so glad that things are changing in India. India is like that 3 GPA kid in class always striving to make it to a perfect 4. It will get their one day, with places perfectly safe for everyone and yet remain the diverse, fun experience it is now. This video made me happy!

Mark Donher says:

I don’t know why you are wasting watching this Psycho bitch, she’s bias and don’t know anything when it comes to traveling! Watch Lost Leblanc channel he’s a true legit traveler rather than this psycho Bitch

Somesh Redkar says:

Thanks once again for this video. Due to the clean India Campaign of Prime minister Narendra Modi India now has toilets for 85% of its people in 2018 from 67% in 2013. He plans to make India open defecation free by October 2019 , the 150 the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Overall, India is now at least 60% cleaner than five years back. Still a long way to go but we are on the way to become reasonably decent country in the world. He has taken this campaign to change the behaviour of people in India to make our country clean.

Avidi Arshid says:

one of the few western people who treat india with some respect and indians as normal people. Thank you for posting this video and enlightening brainwashed foreigners. Thanks to the racist biased western media.

blueeyedflautist says:

Thank you so much for your helpful and fun videos both in India and after! I'm going to Mumbai for a friend's wedding and I have no idea what to expect. I've read or heard all of the things you mentioned in the video and was a bit nervous to be honest, but listening to your real experiences and not just stereotypes has made me feel much better! Can't wait to see where you go next in India! Keep travelling like a psycho! X)
