Have been almost a month in India. Great country and amazing culture. There are many good people out there but also thousands waiting to scam you. The government needs to take serious action as this will affect their tourism.
Part 1: fake train officials
Part 2: 2 days ago in Varanasi at the burning ganges, a man took me up to the temple and said i should give a donation to help. I offered 100 rupees and he got angry and said i was disrespectful and should give 400 rupees donation to the temple. I then laughed and walked off, the man then try to scare me saying that if i dont pay the donation he will call the others working there and ill have big problems. I told him to call the others and ill call the police. He then held my hand from reaching my phone and I aggressively pushed him and he walked off.
If i was a weak person then i would have got scared and paid. Others are not so strong and will fall to these scams. I hope the indian government will wake up as such ignorance is destroying their tourism. I understand many are poor but to cheat and lie is an offence. Please be aware especially in Dehli. Seriously disgusted and great shame. Try to book taxis in dehli only using Uber.
