Well…there’s a lot to unpack. One thing I can tell you for sure is that Indian parents push you extremely hard to do well in school. Of course this is for more traditional parents, (like mine) but more open minded parents can be more empathetic (my friend has parents like this.). If you include any festivals, make sure you do your research or you can PM me. Also, most Indian parents will heavily discourage dating before college (to focus on school, ofc) and will often suggest an arranged marriage. Some girls wear bindis (or botus, as I’ve called them for majority of my life.) everyday, but some don’t (like me.). And Indians often discourage dating someone who isn’t Indian (dumb, I know.) and don’t like revealing clothes (like crop tops.). However, if your MC is open minded (or her parents) feel free to use those scandalous clothes.
Sorry if this was kind of a mess, I just listed things off the top of my head. Feel free to DM me for any more info you may need!
