Hey Raam – Wonderful post! And I know the feeling as it is definitely strange at first to suddenly be stared at so often by so many people. But the good thing about it, is that it makes you think and try to understand what is happening and clearly, you reached the right conclusion.

It is similar when people try to charge you more money for things in India. At first, I took it as an offense until I realized that due to the poverty, everyone is just trying to get as much money as they possibly can in order to survive, and they would gladly charge a local more money as well. They are not discriminating, they are surviving.
