In my travels in India, there were several thing that I noticed about the Indian people and how they differed from us back in the US. And I am not talking about cultural differences, there were plenty of them but that is a story for another day. There were several physical features that I noticed were different, some of them are pretty obvious and a couple may be a little more questionable. But these were just my observations.
The most obvious difference between people from India and the US is the skin color. Their color is far browner but there is an obsession in India where everyone wants really white skin. So they try all these things to get whiter skin whereas people in western countries usually want a nice and dark tan. It’s funny that we always seem to want what we don’t have. Ever wondered why people have such different color skins? It’s because of the different levels of melanin production in our bodies. All races have approximately the same number of melanocytes, or melanin-making cells, but they differ in how actively the cells make melanin. There’s your fun fact for the day.
Aside from the color of skin, Indians generally have a flatter nose and larger eyes then Americans. They can also have wider faces and often straight hair. Indians can sometimes be mistaken for Persians
I am a reasonably tall person standing at 6 foot 2 inches, but I don’t feel tall in the US. But when I traveled in India, I towered above what seemed to be absolutely everyone. Don’t get me wrong, there were some taller people there and I saw several about the same size as me, but as a whole, people seemed to be a lot shorter.
Size Of Breasts
Bit of a strange one and not sure if it was just me, but do the women of India have smaller breasts then those in America? There were very small bust sizes everywhere I looked except for a few that I saw which obviously had some kind of cosmetic surgery to enlarge their breasts. Maybe I was not looking in the right places or maybe I am right. Who knows really?
