Without having a second thought, it wouldn’t be wrong to claim that our world is virtually filled with stereotypical people who do not leave a single opportunity to ask racist kind of questions to the people belonging to India. Yes, we are here highlighting the irritating questions that Indians come across in their daily lives and just hate answering them.

We understand that people of every culture have to deal with the vexatious clichés. But Indian stereotype is something that doesn’t settle for anything. For example, one of the most irritating questions that Indians are asked is, “How come you speak English so easily?” I mean why Indians cannot speak English, it is just like another language to be spoken in India. Right?

However, we all have been there and experienced those annoying questions. Well, as long as people of India will be asked such silly questions, we will keep getting a funny list of weird questions that we Indian are sick of answering.

1. So, do you speak Indian too?

weird questions that indians are sick of answering

Yes, quite easily just the way you speak American. We could speak a couple of things in not only Hindu but in Muslim and Christian too. Got it? India has over 1,000 languages spoken in its different states and cities. Hindi is our national language so almost everyone can get a bit of it but yes, we do not speak Indian. So, next time instead of asking ‘Do you speak Hindu or Indian’, go on with ‘Which language do you speak’ and spare yourself that dirty look.

2. Will you have an arranged marriage?

Oh! Yes, I can as long as the person is not someone as ignorant as you. Erghhh, this question actually pisses off every Indian. Why cannot we have arranged marriages? Well, our arranged marriages are better, no actually, far better than your blind dates. It's basically an original Cupid’s blessing. Alright?
