Cultural Differnces between India and Germany:

INDIA
1) In business world, one shakes hands when they meet each other.
2) During informal meeting, you join hands and say NAMASTE as a greeting. It means ” Hello” .
3) You always maintain a private space circle. Come too close and you might lose a business deal.
4) When you go to someone’s house, you must politely comment on the decor of the house and greet the house hostess. It is considered to be polite if you bring with you some Indian sweets for the hostess.
5) Drinks are always offered before dinner in India. Once the dinner is over, there will be only tea or coffee.
6) The hostess is the most important person you have to talk to, if you have been invited for dinner at a business colleague’s house. The comments on the food should be made to the hostess. Make sure to include the host in the talk.
7) The language used in most business offices is English. So please make sure you talk in English. It is considered to be rude if you talk in a foreign language when others around can’t understand it.
8) Try out Hindi words before the meeting. You will gain the favour of Indian colleagues and counterparts. It is taken as a positive step towards a business deal.
9) Be very frank and precise. Also note the reactions of the counterparts. Beating about the bush will make them very suspicous.
10) Dont try to bargain everywhere in India. Leave the bargaining for cloth markets, shops and grocery items.
11) When you arrive in India, please make sure to inform the Indian counterparts about the time and date of your arrival. It helps them to deal with the traffic and come to pick you up.
12) If you go to big market places like Janpath Road or Connaught Place in Delhi or to Linking Road or Bandra in Mumbai, make sure you keep your purse/wallets at a safe place. Pick pockets are always around. BEWARE!
13) When you visit a holy place, you dont have to show your belief in the place; just respect it and it will be accepted with a smile. Make sure you take off your shoes before you enter the temple.
14) After dinner, dont be shocked if you hear people burphing. It is normal and is considered to be a compliment to the food if you make the burphing sound.
15) Dont pick your nose in public and when you sneeze, you say sorry.
16) If the business counterparts are not specific while giving you the answer to a decision, understand that they are not interested. Indians avoid saying NO most of the times.
17) The formal wear for daily office is casual formal shirts. Dont wear Kurtas to work unless it is a Saturday. For ladies, the formal wear is western formals or Salwar Kameez or Sari.
