    Hi
    1. I was shocked to see homeless people and people asking for food and people gathering food from trash though decently dressed.
    2. Roads are friendly for physically challenged and kids.

    Amway guys in Walmart, first they would smile, then you smile...
    They start conversation like, hi how old is your kid, very cute.. so what you do?
    Then I know Thier intension I take a run...
    One Indian man gave me RSS invite..

    Silence always around me is a shock for me. I keep putting some old dramas etc in YouTube so that I hear a noise.

    Seeing and eating food at an Indian restaurant ( not this was 2 decades ago).
    Clean roads and orderly traffic.
    No sight of two wheelers.
