When I was recently in Germany, I noticed a difference between Indians and Germans which puts Germans at a clear disadvantage…
At a small bus stand with only some 6 destinations, I asked a bus driver about the bus I wanted. His reply “I know about the timing and destination of my bus. Don’t know about the others.”
This reply I got twice from different drivers.
It never happened in India even at bus stands teeming with 100s of busses. Indians are generally interested, open-minded and helpful. They want to know what’s going on around them.
