10 Cultural Differences A North Indian Notices When He Visits South India!

Even though India is a secular country and all my Indians are my brothers and sisters still the south Indian and north Indian people can never stop from boasting about themselves. We consider each cousin brother and sister, and that is why we try to show off and try to prove that we are the best. There are in general a lot of differences due to the geographical and climatic conditions, but that is natural and we can not do anything about it. We have different sets of customs and rituals, and we have got them from our ancestors. A north Indian visits the southern part of India and gets to taste a different culture altogether.
