You should come to India when you 

  • are not scared of cockroaches, spiders, lizards and mosquitoe
  • are always running late for at least 15 minutes (Indians do too)
  • do not have a problem with different hygienic standards
  • do not mind getting stuck in traffic for like forever
  • are able to arrange with dusty, smoggy and wasted environments
  • want to get to know a country whose bureaucracy is even worse than Germany’s

Does not sound tempting? Well, then continue reading. I am pretty sure that I will change your mind! J

I spent my semester abroad at SCMS Cochin School of Business, Cochin, India. Although I knew that I would most probably experience a “world” which is not even comparable to what we are used to, I had no idea HOW entirely different it was going to be. Cultural clashes were the order of the day and I struggled really hard in between. However, retrospectively all those challenges are what makes a stay abroad attractive, worth it and eventually memorable. You not only learn a lot about the foreign country, but also about yourself. And without a second thought I would do it all over again!
