Having spent 4 years in Germany I thought of jotting down some of the differences I have seen in Germany and India -
You don't owe an explanation to any one in Germany, but in India - Why are you not married, if Married, then why you don't have kids, if you have kids then when are they getting married etc etc
In India, one does not need an appointment to have dinner with one's parents
Everybody known everybody in India and here in Germany I don't know my neighbours. I am sure they also don't know each other personally :)
Germany is a punctual country and I admire that
No loud speaker chanting about god(s) in Germany. What a piece of mind
Unlike India, not every one wants to be an IT Engineer in Germany
Sports are valued as much as education in Germany
German politicians don't shout at each other in parliament, at least this is what I have seen on Tagesschau
Red means you stop at traffic signal in Germany. Simple, is not it?
There is hardly ever any news about India in Germany and about Germany in India
You can call Cops in Germany if your neighbour did not clean his/her dog's sh**
There is nothing for which you can not get an insurance in Germany
You can call any one Hitler jokingly in India, good luck with such joke in Germany
I have been told Berlin is not Germany and Bangalore is not India though I would like to believe that rest of Germany is like Berlin and rest of India is like Bangalore
These were some of my experiences. Do you also have something (funny) to share about a country you are in vs India?
Don't you feel ecstatic when your automated tests find bug? After all tests finding bugs give us a sense of accomplishment, is not it? And this is followed by usual cycle of defect reporting, retesting and hopefully closure of defect. But at times defects are deferred to next or future releases. Which causes test method to fail for subsequent releases. And if you are dealing with a test suite having 100s of tests then it may become difficult to remember if there was a defect reported for a failing test? How do you deal with such situation. How about adding defect-id to @description tag of TestNG test. Hence it is reported on automated test report and we would know if defect exists for a failing test - How do you track defect-id of a failing test?
