Extract

Reading this article, I came to conclusion, that every country has specific traditions and behaviour, that ordinary people might not know and maybe they can`t find information nowhere how to act in particular country and situation.
When we need to act in the way we are not used to, we fell uncomfortable and I think, that in this case the planned deal can fall through even faster than if we would act like usual. To our business partner we might seem not assured. Of course we need to respect other cultures, but don`t need to forget about our customs and habits.
Talking about India, I think it is madness to use only right hand when eating, if you are lefthander. It would be very funny, when you try to learn in few minutes eat using right hand. If hostess is so active and she likes to pick up food chunks from the floor, you definitely can eat using right hand and not to worry about dropping something down.
I consider, that we need to show respect for differences in culture so far, if it does not harm ourselves and our culture and traditions.
Nowadays people don`t pay so much attention on the way you eat or act at the dinner table. Only some gestures can be understood different in other countries. For example, when you show two fingers in the air, meaning letter “V”- in America in means “Victory”, but in some Asian countries in means something really impolite. So better don’t flow above your hands, when visiting other continent.
