Culture Shock



  • In the Indian sub continent, public display of affection is a strict ‘no – no’.
  • Topics such as alcohol, emancipation of women, abortion, religion, political issues and man-woman relationships are a big no no and best left out of conversation, particularly in the Arab countries.
  • Do not point with your finger in China, Taiwan or Japan or sit with your leg crossed and foot pointing forward in Thailand; never ask any personal questions - or probe into personal lives- in Japan; it’s considered bad manners to do so.
