24 Things Indians Love : No. 21 – Queues

with one comment

QueueNow, in India, nobody can miss a queue. Each & every Indian, in his life, has atleast once been a part of the queue. Indians just love it. And if you want to see the real Indian UNITY IN DIVERSITY, just see a queue of people. You will see every ‘kind’ of Indian. Each and every person will tell you about his ideas of why the queues are bad, how to break a queue and take a quicker route, and stuffs. Wherever you go, whatever you do in India, there will always be a queue, to be a part of.

Now, this queuing up is not a patent of the poor. If you have to get some work done, which is concerned with government, then god help you. Even government wants you to be a part of a queue. There are queues of pending cases in courts, there are queues of people in shops, there are queues of people in banks, there are queues of people to worship in temples and mosques and even queues of people for using public toilets!!

We can very proudly say that if China has The Great Wall of China, then we have The Great Queues of India

The list of “24 things Indians love” continues –

No. 24 – Eating with hands

No. 23 – Mahatma Gandhi

No. 22 – Bargaining

  1. Dude.. I think Indians hate queues.. they have absolutely no queue etiquette and are ready to break it at the slightest chance.. I swear to god the closest I have ever come to massacring people is at queues – be it the airport, railway station, or even a temple, the place you’d expect people to put their best foot forward..
