    17 Simple Pleasures That Will Make Any Indian's Day

    Stepping out of your house, and getting a rickshaw driver that is willing to take you wherever you want to go.

    1. When you're walking down the street on a hot day, and there's no line at the kulfi walla.

    2. Travelling during peak hours, and not getting caught in any traffic.

    3. When you attend any family function and don't get cross examined about your relationship status, career, or life decisions.

    4. Also when at said functions, you put in as little effort as possible, and still make some mad moolah just by touching elders' feet.

    5. When you step out of your house, and you find a whole line of rickshaws WILLING to take you wherever you want to go.

    6. That first rain right after a brutal summer.

    7. Finding a window seat on an otherwise crowded train.

    8. Or better still, getting an entire compartment to yourself.

    9. Filling your stomach on the best street food for under 20 bucks.

    10. Finding out there's a massive clearance sale, ACTUALLY making it through the lines, and finding nice stuff left.

    11. Going out for a chai, and your chaiwala makes all of the day's frustrations go away by getting it just right.

    12. The smoke and chai combination after a long day at work.


    Having it on your balcony is an added bonus.

    13. When you're travelling during festival season and there's no traffic or noise anyway.

    This is very rare. But it could happen?

    14. Singing a Honey Singh song, and getting the rap part just right.

    15. A meetha paan after a heavy dinner.

    16. When you have an entire day of uninterrupted internet connection.


    This one pretty much trumps all the others combined.

    17. And the best of all, coming home to this.
