It’s frustrating sometimes being an Indian goth

I'm Indian. Have been in love with the subculture for years, been religiously listening to the music for as long as I can remember. But, in my vicinity, I absolutely don't know anyone with the same music taste T__T I listen to tons of other genres so I have friends with whom I can make conversations about music but, almost no goths, at least not that I know of. It sometimes gets very lonely since there's no presence of any community here. Irony is that the metropolitan cities in India have underground scenes for metal, hip-hop and other genres but, it's difficult to find people who actually listen to goth. Kolkata, the city I'm from, is internationally known for some of the most brutal underground death metal/black metal projects and those scenes here are thriving. But, absolutely nothing for goth. I see people posting about going to goth clubs and all that, and I wish I could experience that once. Some day, maybe!

Plus, dressing up gothic here is such a chore. I want to explore the fashion aspects of the subculture but, the constant fetishization has led me to stop dressing up like that completely. All I get is thirsty remarks from creepy men or get stared at publicly. The humid weather here isn't really conducive either. Are there any fellow Indian goths here?

What was that one song/album that got you into the genre?

For me, I believe it was the album Medusa by Clan of Xymox. That album has some of my favourite tracks; "Agonized by Love", "Back Door", "Masquerade". What was that one song or album that was a gateway for you into the genre?

What are some goth/goth-adjacent bands that have electronic elements but sound human and organic?

I’m looking for bands that have a big natrual drum sound and melodic vocals but incorporate lots of synths or other effects that you would normally hear in more electronic styles. Thanks!

Edit: For reference, I’ve been enjoying a lot of Killing Joke, The Smiths, Drab Majesty, Depeche Mode, etc recently
