To avoid burning onself

I was recently asked if Indians still eat in banana leaves and with their hands. About banana leaves I am not sure, but I think they pretty much do in villages, at least in South India. As far as eating with their hands they certainly do and it won't change so soon. And I don't see why it should change anyway! It is super funny to toy with your food before gulping it, and it's a good way not to burn your tongue. And it is a good way to also avoid dish washing, water and washing liquid wasting!

There are other ways to avoid burning oneself... For instance when coffee is too hot, they pour it in the saucer. And they drink from the saucer! And why not?? ;)

Just to make you dream...

 It does make you dream doesn't it?  

(PS: rêve means dream in French)

Construction on the streets of Mumbai.

 

For some reason, Indians love to give French names to their buildings, may look fancy, even with spelling mistakes (like The Souvenier, Palais Royale etc.)

White versus Black

india,salt,pepperBeware: in India, to satisfy the taste buds deformed by spices, pepper and salt are reversed! I who hate pepper got f... so many times...

And I still do given that sometimes there are pranksters who decide to play like the European and invert again!
