Hi bbmike...thanks for the comment. The truth is that Indians do not smell any worse than anyone else in any other culture.We’ve all come across people who smell bad...it has to do with their hygiene habits, their living conditions though the foods they eat is one of the reason...Not all Indians smell bad. :)
