Even in local hardware shop. Once I started looking for 3mm plywood. The first question they asked "Ye kisme lagega? (where will you use it?)" By mistake I told "aeromodelling" first they could not understand (which is perfectly ok everybody can not know everything). Then to hide their ignorance they keept mum and showed me the door.

Since then I changed tactics and for push rods, nuts and bolts and plywood .... even foam.... I just say "Beti ke school me craft me lagega? (Its for my daughter for her school's craft class)" and make a very sad face.

It worked...they show me whatever they have and I sometimes find the one that suits most.  Giggle Giggle
"New" things or the thought of "new" things makes them very nervous.

So true. I have had the same experience. Sad reality is that India is not conducive for DIY people where any material / infrastructure is needed. Only thing that can be done here without hassles is to develop software as this doesn't need anything but a PC. Very difficult to do anything in the hardware space. The blame lies with both the government policies and the mindset of people. Unfortunately not easy to change either Sad
