It’s been a year now. A year, since I came to India, with a plan to stay here 9 months only. It’s been a year now, and I’m still here. And planning to stay even longer.

During this year my life has changed a lot. I’ve lived and travelled both north and south India, I even crossed himalayas on bike, which I’ve learned how to drive here only. I’m wobbling my head up and right and left and down, whenever I answer a question. I have a nice tan, that gets marketers trying to sell me whitening cream. I find food in Italian restaurants not spicy enough and I’m planning on growing a nice moustache.

I’m desi now.

For the past year I had a blog in Polish. MyIndiaExperience – about being stunned and surprised, about constant attempt to understand and define, what is (wrong with?) this subcontinent. That was also an attempt to explain – to my family and friends in Poland, what the hell am I doing here in India.

But not anymore.

Things I have to say about India and my life here now changed. And the audience changed. This is not interesting anymore for my mates back at home, while growing number of my Indian and Expat friends asks me repeatedly “What are those weird hieroglyphs?”

So there it comes. Same Same But Different. Just another blog on India. This time in (broken) English and from a slightly different point of view.

    Dzien Dobry,

    I am also a non native english writer (french) on my blog, and there surely is some inspiration to get from yours πŸ™‚

    I started an 18 months trip around the world a couple of months ago, which aims mainly at promoting European entrepreneurship. I have therefore met and interviewed several European people since I left, and would like to do the same thing now in India.

    As you have been living there for quite a while, I was hoping you could help me in finding some people that I could interview in India, as I will arrive in this country in a few days.

    Please contact me by email at benoit.demonspey(at)

    Many thanks in advance for your help

    Kind regards,
