5 Reasons Why America and India Are Basically the Same


Indians… Indians everywhere!
In 1492 there was a guy named Chris Columbus, who liked traveling. One day he reached the shores of North America, but he thought it was India. So, of course, he named them after people he never met in Asia. Now you know why it was okay to ask “dot or feather”, when someone told you they were Indian. BTW, it’s not okay to say that now.

Both were once British colonies
There are people who can take whatever the life throws at them, good or bad, and there are these two – Benjamin Franklin and Bhagat Singh. Neither of them could take sipping the English tea any longer. One said that to become truly free and independent, we’d have to hang together, while the other was hung by the Brits at the age of 23. It’s a dark part of the world history, but their actions lead to both India and America becoming free from the shackles of the British Empire.

Both are obsessed with cows
Indians respect their cows, and consider each of their parts to be holy, while the US just loves seeing those cow parts as steaks, hamburgers and sausages. To each their own, I guess.

Dancing is huge
Needless to say both Indians and Americans LOVE dancing. Otherwise why would there be so many dance shows on TV? “Dancing with the Stars”, “So You Think You Can Dance”, “Jhalak Dikhh la Jaa”, “Dance India Dance”, and the list goes on and on. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a show called “Dancing With Pets”, where people would tango with their cats, dogs and maybe snakes. Hell, I’d watch that!

Unbeatable superheroes
Well, they’re not actually “superheroes”, they’re more like meme gods. You might have heard of this obscure bearded badass named Chuck Norris, and his Indian counterpart – Rajinikanth. Both are mutually absurd hyperbolized characters with equally unimaginable toughness, attitude, and virility. If (or when) these two collide – the Earth will probably collapse in on itself.
