This Foreigner Speaking in Hindi to Tackle Autowallahs in India is Making the Internet Smile (Video)
Foreigners travelling in India often get duped by the autowallahs and merchants who try to extort money out of them thinking them to be richer than us. The hawkers and other vendors often ask for exorbitant amount of money from them which would leave a common Indian aghast all because they can’t speak in Hindi and often don’t know the subtle art of bargaining. However, what if you encounter a foreigner who not only understands Hindi but also is fluent in the language. A video shot by a foreigner and uploaded to YouTube shows him speaking in Hindi and Haryanvi and giving the autowallahs a pleasant surprise by tackling them in their own language. This foreigner’s video of speaking in Hindi is making the internet smile.
The video shot by a foreigner and uploaded to the YouTube channel India Survival Guide, shows him engaging in a conversation in Hindi with Indians and ‘garnering smiles’ as he goes around mouthing words like “Ram, Ram ji. Nahi chaahiye, ji.” The video is made with the objective that it will help other foreigners bargain better in Delhi because it is unfair that they are charged with exorbitant fees. ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ might be the common adage that we Indians are supposed to adhere to but when we see a foreigner things are often different.

In the video the man shows how rickshawallahs try to dupe foreigners and ask for more than the prescribed price for even a short distance. It is appalling to know that his experiment is actually true and in reality we Indians are no better and do try to scam tourists as and when we get a chance.
