===Talk===
You can talk about anything and everything including Gandhi, food, music, education, roads, religion in summers. They are generally more open to discussions in summer over the winters. The best way is to ask questions and once they are comfortable, they will tell you more. Use of "do not eat", "drink", "stand up" may sound rude to North Americans and Europeans, but they are not intended to be impolite. Infact if you know their local language, you will be surprised to see how polite they are. Abusing someone Use of swear words is considered as generally very rude and unfriendly. This is remarkably different than the northern part of Hindi-speaking India where swearing is, in general, acceptable. Most educated people do not mingle with locals for this reason. People will be open to suggest, if they know the stuff better than anyone else. Dussehra is the best and most photographed festivals of this city and it totally changes the pattern for atleast a week. Diwali is also very well celebrated here. Holi is generally dirty with bad colors which might cause severe irritation to eyes and skin and can be avoided with use of fruit-colors. You can ask your guest to check this before they shop for colors for Holi.
For a new educated traveller, it is good to talk about local colleges and the education standards or the local cuisine(which ranges infinitely).
The city is cool and very absorbent to different religions. The best high school education is provided by Christian schools, yet they are very expensive and completely lack the local cultural flavor.
