At first, a formal note to say that this blog is not about Sweden vs India.

When people of different cultures work for the same company they do not know each other, they are uncertain about the other parts intention and the meaning of the words that are spoken. They might not understand the behaviour of the other and could even be offended by it. Knowing the culture of people we are working with plays a crucial part in strong cooperation and collaboration among people with different values and views of life.
