  • Just because people speak English, do not assume customs are all the same—they are not.
  • Business moves at a slower pace in India. Impatience will get you nowhere.
  • No matter how important you are, follow the rules. If you forget your Visa, you are headed home.
  • Delhi is the best place to set up shop, because there is more business done there and better infrastructure.
  • Nonetheless, you still are going to end up traveling around the country a lot to keep competitive.

  • Prepare for last-minute schedule changes, especially if you do not adhere to the late-start timing.
  • American English and Indian English carry different connotations with their phrases.
