Moving to India

"What", I stuttered.
"Yes Neeraj we are going to live in India", declared my Mom.
"But", I said.
"No buts", commanded my Mom. "Go back upstairs and pack your suitcase with necessary things, be thankful that we are getting your Wii", said my Mom. My whole world turned instantly upside down. Me living in India was the worst thing that would ever happen to me. Hot and humid nights with constant nuisance of mosquitoes, uhhhhh! The most horrifying part is that if a student makes a mistake, teacher has the authority to slap them.
I then sulked upstairs and packed every single object in my room. Five hours later a voice announced, "Thanks for choosing Emirates, we will depart in the next ten minutes." At least I can watch a lot of movies because Emirates is famous for the number of movies a passenger can see. This is probably the last time I am ever going to watch an English animated movie.
After a couple of hours we landed in India, one of the most active places I have ever seen. My aunt and my cousin came to receive us at the airport. My aunt said "Hi Neeraj welcome to India".
"So Neeraj, you are going to have a fun time in India, US is so boring right?" asked my cousin. We helped our parents load the luggage and set off to our aunt's place. As we drove there I saw smelly old drainage sewers and it smelled horrible. I saw lot of street dogs and they looked fascinating because they have been able to adapt to the rough conditions in India. The dogs in US are rather delicate and sensitive. US born citizens have almost no chance of adapting to the conditions in India. "Mom it's going to take another half hour and I really need to go to bathroom ", squealed my cousin with an urgent tone in his voice.
" Uhhhhh , fine Gautham you can go", moaned my aunt. The car screeched to a stop and my cousin got out. Where the heck is he going, there is no bathroom here, we are in the middle of a highway I thought. He isn't going to the bathroom in the grass is he, but he did the same exact thing I thought. What type of society is this anyway? This is very wrong and people of India should try to stop this habit. My cousin got in the car and we set off for my aunt's house.
I went into my aunt's house for a cool and a refreshing drink of water, but when I got there, there was no power in the house. " Hey auntie, why is there no power in the house?" I asked.
"Oh Neeraj we don't have any power in the house for three hours in the evening " , replied my aunt. She further on explained by saying , " That the electricity department does not have enough energy to send power to all its clients so they cut the power for three hours ". That's crazy, I mean seriously, in US power going out once in a year is really rare , but they don't have power in India for three hours a day. I decided to take a nap and after sleeping for few hours my eyes just registered something. On the ceiling there was a gray, slimy pawed reptile staring at me. I then...
