Although we Indians are cool about most things, there are certain topics and actions that can annoy the hell out of us. These ‘triggers’ are often used to tease a fellow Indian that can lead to long arguments and heated debates.
But, we can atleast laugh at ourselves. So here are 12 surefire ways to piss off an Indian.
1. Praise Pakistan during an India/Pak cricket match
What did you just say? It’s over between us.
2. Stepping on a book/paper
You’ll surely fail in your exams. Tsk, tsk…now pick it up and say sorry.
