What are some things that happen only in India?
Karthick Shanmugam, Proprietor (2018-present)
I have a shop in my home town and no products here are with price tag. Cost of the product I say is depending on my mood. I have a separate prize tag for men and women which is something differs up to 2x.
Man: Whats the cost?
Man: Will u give it for ₹80??
Me :(packs the product)
BOTH SATISFIED. DEAL FINISHED
Women: Whats the cost?
Women: (calculation in mind and comes up with an unexpected cost)
Women: Will u give it for ₹150??
Me: Make it as ₹160.
Women : No way .give it for ₹150.
Me : Make it as ₹155.
Women: Not a single penny more than ₹150.
Me :(with a failure expression in face and un controllable Lough inside)(packs the product)
Me: Its only for u at these cheap cost madam. Don't say anyone you bought these for this cost.
“By saying so the she believes that they bought for very cheap prize. And the helping tendency with in het starts to work”
Women: Ok I will say as ₹200.
BOTH SATISFIED. DEAL NOT FINISHED.
She will come back with another women and ask for ₹160.
AND THE CHAIN CONTINUES.
FINALLY TO MY POINT
INDIA IS THE ONLY COUNTRY TO HAVE DIFFERENT PRIZE LIST FOR WOMEN.
HAPPY SHOPPING SSISTERS.

Sadly, Most of the answers here are showing the negative aspects of India (No offence), But there are also some positive aspects that very few of the below answers are indicating -
Anyways here are some of the very positive things that only happened or happening in India…
1.India launched the cheapest mars mission called Mangalyaan in its first attempt. and India’s the only country in this world to do this, No country has ever done this miracle in its first attempt.
2.India has the best remote sensing capabilities in the world.
3. India is the largest Mango production country in the world, and mango is also the national fruit of India.
4. India is world's largest democracy with over 814.5 million voters.
5.During Mughal Empire, India was the world's largest economic power, accounting for 24.4% of world GDP. which is largest of its time and also one of the largest GDP rate till date. Have a look at current nominal and real GDP rate.
6. India is the only Asian country where people speak more than 700 languages.
7. India is one of the most craziest country, in terms of breaking world records
World’s largest T-shirt is made from 200,000 recycled plastic bottles
8.India has the widest range of festivals than other country in the world.
9. Chenab Bridge is the highest under construction railway bridge in the world, located in the Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir in India. 
Let me make one thing very clear, Here I’m not saying that no other country can do this or achieve this but my point behind writing this answer is that, we can’t underestimate the positive aspect of our country if we do so, then India will always be a “slum” country for this world. So be serious about what kind of content/image you’re building up for your own country. and please don’t show the positive things in negative ways, If you want to admire Sunil Chhetri then do it in the positive way, take it easy and don’t take admiration as a burden. If you want to do it, do it in the right way.

These are some of the everyday life situations which happen only in India (well most of them)
1)In order to get the best out of a bargain with a shopkeeper, people usually say "bhaiya hamesha idhar se he lete hai" (we always buy from here) whether they buy or not.
2) When you go for a haircut, the hairstylist isn't satisfied by just cutting your hair. He/she will keep pestering you with "Sir facial kara do, Sir oil massage kara do" untill you give a justifiable explanation on why you are not interested.
3) When you step out of your house, and see your curious neighbourhood Aunty around, it is your moral responsibility to tell her the purpose of your tour along with the location. If she is not satisfied, you might have to tell her about the people whom you'll be meeting.
4) If you are attending any social gathering you need to be prepared to answer the following questions asked by random people:-
4a) If you are single you'll be asked when will you get married.
4aa) Have you found out any appropriate match?
4b) If you are married, when will you have kid(s)?
4c) If you have written any exam, what was your score.
4cc) what was the score of Sharmajis son/daughter.
4d) what is the best cusine that is kept.
Despite you answering the above, they will still try out each and every dish to see if you were telling the truth.
4e) You will also come across random people bumping into you and asking you whether you recogonise them or not. You will eventually have to give up and recogonize them as they wont leave you unless you do.
5) People at a PAN shops ( beetlenut shops) have multiple solutions to any possible problem to mankind. Their expertise varies from nuclear technology to cure for cancer.
7) While using a public toilet when you need utmost privacy, there are people who stand by next to you and would want you to discuss the political situation in the country. Yes such people do exist.

Back in college, I was talking to a girl and in the background there popped up some news on the TV regarding reservations.
I asked her what was her word on these reservations thing. She said ‘Reservations should not be existing, there should be equal opportunity for everyone blah blah blah’
I said ‘But they are saying they have been oppressed by higher castes since decades’. She said ‘We are living in the 21st century. This that etc’
Several months later, I asked her whether it is fair to give 33% reservation for women in parliament?
She said ‘Yes, they should be given. Because women are oppressed by men for centuries, they are not treated equally..etc’
Now ladies and gentlemen here is my point. Let us analyse, according to her ideology
Lower caste people say they need reservations, they have been oppressed. That’s wrong.
Women say they have been oppressed by men since centuries hence need reservations. That’s right.
Two self-contradicting statements. Isn’t it?
Now I asked her how do you justify both of them? She thought for a while and said ‘Bhargav Dude, first of all, this caste system should be abolished. Then everyone will be normal’.
Let me tell you this is the same girl who said she will marry someone in her caste and settle. I asked why only your caste? She says that’s how it happens in her family.
Wah, she wants to abolish the caste system but she doesn’t want to marry out of her caste.
Seems like an asteroid falls from space and abolishes the caste system at a go.
