    So I ended up getting one more invite from Oneplus team to purchase the 64GB Sandstone variant of OPO. Since I have already purchased one, I am going to share this invite with one lucky Forum member. The invite is gonna expire in <24 hrs (So the winner will have to claim it ASAP!!). I'll keep this thread open only for couple of hours Starting @ 17:30 GMT.

    Coz I won this invite as part of OPO's Bangalore fan gathering event, and also coz Oneplus is gearing up to launch this device in India shortly, all I want you to do is to post the most interesting thing that you've heard about 'India'. One random entry(among the relevant entries) will win the invite [The userID of the winner will be updated below].

    So hurry up!! :)

    Status: Closed

    So Many wonderful responses, I wish I had so many invites to give away. :( Thanks to everyone who participated!

    Winner: @stephenmagee

    [true story] My dad couldn't eat any spicy food in the past..
    One time, he had a work trip to go to India. Since he couldn't stand the spicy food in India, he chose to eat at McDonald's. To his surprise, even the burgers at McDonald's was spicy... He didn't wanna waste any food, so he took an hour sitting at an airport and finished his spicy burger..
    Since then, he said he could stand spicy food! (but not really hahaha)

    Many Indians find toilet paper repellent and consider it cleaner to splash water with the left hand in the appropriate direction. Consequently, the left hand is considered unclean and is never used for eating.f

    i m an indian so i can state 500 things still i will have 500 more(yes, a wink to a guys who will remember the song "i m gonna be" by the proclaimers)
    but the said thing is beneath all the glitz ,happiness and the diversity of people here, there is the underlying problem of poverty,destitution and corruption
    street food is awesome though
