A White Girl in India

This is sad to hear.

Many people see India through a lens of exoticism. The picture tigers, temples, and tumeric. While they aren’t wrong, the reality of India is much different from how movies, like Eat, Pray, Love, portray it.

The experience of India differs widely from person to person, so I’m just going to speak for myself and my experiences.

The first thing I noticed when I arrived in India was the cat-calling. It was incessant. The first place we visited, Qutab Minar, a man screamed at me in a language I didn’t understand. I’m not sure if he was upset with my clothes, or my makeup, or the way I looked at him. I never found out. But I do know he was not the last.
