6. Always be Respectful
Never take photos at funeral ghats, it’s not a tourist attraction, it’s someone’s funeral! If you are on the river in Varanasi, your boatman will probably remind you, but it’s easy to get carried away at the moment and want that perfect shot of something so culturally different. Just try to always remember that, though it may seem like you’re encouraged to believe it at times, India is not a theme park. It’s a country full of real people, even if they’re often doing really theme-parky weird things like walking around naked covered only in body paint.
