#2 Grocery Shopping
Grocery shopping in America would be a five, maybe ten minute drive to the nearest grocery store. Then, more time would be spent in trying to decipher which aisle had what, in lugging around a cart full of groceries, standing in line, checking out and driving back.
In India, the groceries come to your doorstep. And if you are good at bargaining you can get away with half or less the market price quoted by the vendors. Yes, Indians are a lazy lot. And some of them are even proud to be lazy.
