Indian people generally don't say no. Emm... Sorry, can I make you a question? Hai This means that they have understood you, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they agree. Okay. Do you speak English? Hai Emm... so... Do you know where is the restaurant called Akash? They do this gesture when they don’t understand you. Pardon? Wakarimasen means 'I don't understand you.' Em... Don't you understand me, do you? When an Indian shakes or wiggles his head with a rather loose movement from one side to the other of the neck they may want to say YES, NO or an intermediate response. It means ‘I understand’, ‘I hear you’ or ‘I agree’. When it’s accompanied by a weird noise (something like ‘hum’) usually means YES. It can be quite confusing. Hey Aashish! Hello... wait, wait, wait, wait! It's obvious you have just arrived to India. Don't feel offended, but here it is not well-viewed the displays... the public displays of affection between different sexes. Oh... And what about people of the same sex? It's common to see people of the same sex holding hands or arm in arm, because it's a friendship demonstration. Oh... I didn't know that. Emm... Sorry, but... now you are insulting the man who is sitting in front of us. Oh... What? Yes... you are stretching your feet towards him. Feet are considered to be an impure part of our body. So please, can you keep your feet on the ground? Oh... Yes... Of course. Well, well, well... Are you planning to visit Canada? Yes? Okay, so you should pay attention to our next expert in Canadian issues. Hi everybody, I'm Martha Stewart, an expert in Canadian culture, And I'm going to give you some tips for your stay in this awesome country. As you know, when you visit another country is essential to be aware of the Law. In Canada, there are some strange laws which, however, you should know before visiting it. Let's go over the most shocking ones: Stop! You would not like to frighten her. A National Law states that if you happen to kill her, you'll go to prison. Hey, hey, hey! I'm sorry, but here in Alberta it's illegal to paint a wooden log. However, if you go to prison: when you were released, you would be given a handgun with bullets and a horse, so you can ride out of the country. What are you doing? I'm sorry, but here in British Columbia, it's illegal to kill a Sasquatch. But undoubtedly, Ontario is my favourite providence. Above all, I would like to emphasize the laws which I have named 'the Sunday's prohibitions.' Let's make a ranking. Number three! Hey! What are you doing? Don't you know that it's Sunday? Here, in the township of Wawa, it's illegal to show public affection on Sundays. Number two! No, I can't believe it! Are you eating an ice-cream in Bank Street on Sunday? Yes... That's illegal in each street of the township of Ottawa, even if it's summer. And finally, numer one! I can't believe it! What are you doing? I'm just dragging my dead horse... Well, but do you know where you are? Yes, I'm in Toronto. Correct! And this is Yonge Street and it's Sunday! And what's the problem? Oh, I think you don't know that it's illegal to drag a dead horse down Yonge Street on Sundays. I'm really sorry, but you will have to wait until Monday. I hope these astonishing Laws would not have discouraged you from visiting Canada. This Northern country offers a wide range of possibilities to have fun. And remember Justin Bieber is ours! ♪ Hey you! I want to ask you if you know why they are so trusting. Remember, they leave their bikes in the street and nothing happens. Please tell me why! ♫ ♪ Yes, you know that you are right They are like that, they are like that. They don't care if they get robbed. They are like that, they are like that. They don't care if something wrong may happen to their bicycles. Yes, you know that you are right. They are like that, they are like that. They don't care if they get robbed. They are like that, they are like that. Yes, they are... LIKE THAT! Close your eyes and imagine you are out in Leipzig and you want to move through the town. Don't forget that a German could shout like a madman if you pour out the cycleway. So remember, cycles own the streets, always they have the priority. So remember, cycles own the streets, always they have the priority. You're right! At Germany they just trust and leave them all out there. They leave all their bikes with no chains, no padlocks or any gadgets. If you want to overtake other bikes, say 'Fahrrad' very loud many times. Ring the bell just if you want people go to hell. Make them go and have the way for you on your own. They're narrow minded, always on time, solitary, sttuborn, quite, always grouped on party time. They face the problems and speak so low, and on Sundays there's nobody, there's no, there's no... BODY! Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious! If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious, Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz!
