New Delhi: People in almost all countries have certain obsessions. These obsessions reflect the popular culture of the people of that nation. As masses follow these obsessive trends, businessmen quietly make a killing out of these.

Here are 10 things that Indians are crazy about :  


1. Skin lightening creams

 

In India, skin lightening cream is a craze among both men and women who have brown-coloured skin. Almost every Indian mother expects her sons and daughters to have fair coloured skin. Matrimonials are packed with texts like "gori" prospective brides.

Though Hindu gods Lord Rama, Krishna and Shiva have brown coloured skin, Indians in general have a fetish for light coloured skin. Thanks to the skin lightening cream industry's innovations, even a maid or a poor woman owns a pouch packet of these in order to look fair.  

 2. Cricket


 

No words to describe this sport fervour in India. Especially when it's an India vs Pakistan match. It's like a do or die situation for Indians. Roads become deserted, people stay indoors or watch on huge screens, the twists and turns in the game called cricket. And cricketers? They are as great as gods for their fans.
