So which one is true, or are they the two faces of the same person.
Whilst he was hardworking and I believe his intentions are good, some of the personal habits I observed left a lot to be desired.The constant spitting (apparently due to chewing tobacco), public urination (and by this I mean pulling it out anywhere there is space and going), nose picking and staring at me (usually whilst also fiddling with their nether regions) are a few of the distasteful activities I observed.Whilst she was lovely and friendly, her presence changed our plans and the dynamic of our meeting.I have never encountered this before when meeting Western men or women for that matter. It all seemed strange, and quite honestly a little disappointing.One commentator in the article argues that the separation of males and females contributes to sexual violence, as women are viewed only as sexual objects.
I am not sure about this as in western societies, where there is no such delineation, women are also viewed as sexual objects and sexual violence still occurs.In my opinion, if they had to go out and attract a woman entirely on their own (and assuming she had unfettered free will and choice in the matter), they would be less likely to indulge in these behaviours. In years past I have come to India for work, and in my current stay in Delhi I am living with family and am privy to another side of India.Whilst the professional men that I have met don’t have the more distasteful personal habits, I do still find them very difficult to understand.Also it is unclear to me if the separation of men and women (for example in the trains) is a reaction to the violence or the cause.Feeling a little uneasy, I continue on with my internet research and find this blog on Reasons to Marry an Indian Man.After chatting to a few men online, it seemed that most were far more interested in my citizenship than who I was, which is an immediate fail.
