These Things From Foreign Are Completely Owned By Indians.

Indians accept the things entirely which our heart likes. But we do not accept it as it is rather we modify it in our coolest Indian way. Like we had not copied English, we have created it in our own way which is called "Hinglish" in general. Similarly, there are so many non-Indian things that we have made of our own. 

Believe me, you will be stunned after knowing that your favourite delicious samosa is not an Indian snack.
