THEY FOOD WITH THEIR BARE HANDS!!!!!!!!!!!!


Firstly, it has been proven1 that the tactile stimulus from the hands actually enhances the experience of eating. According to Ayurveda, digestion starts with the fingertips. As someone who has lived that lifestyle for several years I can personally attest to the fact that food tastes better when eaten with the hands.

Secondly, it's more hygienic than using forks/knives/spoons. Think about it, it's obvious.

Thirdly, it's more practical for whoever serves the food.

Lol not all Indians eat with their hands.

It all depends...

In certain areas British/Western culture had a bigger impact.

In certain parts of India, even back in the days (50+ years back) people ate with spoons and dressed up in dress shirts and coats for any event. Always had tea when guests come over and have tea in the afternoon.

I think in Northern India people do not eat with their hands, but in Southern Indian they do.

I remember I made a joke about a younger cousin who like eating with her hands "Stop eating like a South Indian!"

In what the layman calls Hindu culture everyone eats with the hands.

"In certain parts of India, even back in the days (50+ years back) people ate with spoons and dressed up in dress shirts and coats for any event. Always had tea when guests come over and have tea in the afternoon."

Good thing that's over. The British tried to impregnate the culture with their 'superiority' claims. One of the most underrated terrorist attacks in the history of the world. They should be ashamed.

Luckily Gandhi ended that.



The caste system is holding india back. Until this outdated system is thrown out a lot of people will miss out on great opportunities to make their lives better.

The so called nice india people that you see in other countries are generally from higher classes. Some a very stuck up by the way they talk (i.e they think they better then everyone), however the genuine ones are very nice people..

They bobble their heads when they are proud of something they say.

They play decent cricket lol. Except this tour of Australia in 2011/12.

But in general i'd say 80% of India is seen as very poor and exploited by a few people. From what we are lead to believe it is developing rapid as more jobs are being outsourced to india (call centers, IT jobs, even factories)

snakenobi- are you a rich Indian (you have a computer/internet, after all xD)? How do you feel about all the poor in your country?

compared to most indians...........................yeah

ut really nobody is really rich in india

 

india's is a very corrupt nation and Moneychanges rule india.

These guys are fake rich people without any vision.

 

For example Ambani,this guy made a $1 billion house but surroudings of his house is very poor and even slums.

 

India has alot of problems like multiculturism,socialism,etc.

 

 

I feel digusted not about the poor but about our leaders who are such shitholes.I am a very technicle person and understand where the problems.

 

lower or upper class,all of indians are poor.i do not treat lower class people as different and all of their problems are also my problems.so i am very angry at the problems

My honest and ill-informed opinion: dense, poor with a few very rich areas. Education is strong, and IT sector is growing quickly.


its not education but propaganda that is fed to children in india.

@snakenobi
seriously man...how old are you?and how much have you traveled in your own country.and how much do you know about india's financial growth,its gdp,its economical status and rest?
you sound so ignorant.don't make an impression of your country infront of others when you yourself dont have an idea.
about my perception..
i am an indian.from a middle class family.working in IT.Actually for apple.and i have traveled almost all country.
india is a diverse country in every sense.you will find an example of every possible society and ideology here.
you will find the latest technology as well as most backward possible system in some public organizations.
and that i think is present because of such a huge population.when you have such a huge population its not possible to tackle corruption in each corner,provide eduction to each and every one and distribute wealth equally.
things are improving.but on their own rate.and i can in next 20 years,india will be one of top 7-8 most powerful nations.even at present indian is second most powerful country in asia.and among top 10-15 in world right now.
india has really powerful and influential people.and they are spreading their influence with every passing day.
dreamworks movie studio is now owned by an indian company.indian premier league(like an epl for cricket) has clubs which were sold for same money as the worth of manchester united.
india has some backward areas.but also really famous tourist destinations like goa.north east india is as beautiful as any place in the world.so is kerala.
its just that in presence of some many diverse societies,religions,languages..sometimes difference arises.but its no different then any other developed country.atleast we dont abuse people because of their skin color in public or in matches as it happens in almost all europe



and everyone seem to forget the fact that india gained independence in 1947.everything before that was taken away by british.and we started developing since then only.its been 65 years to independence..isnt it?
india is much better then any developed country as compared to how they were after 65 years of their independence.
does anyone have an idea how u.s.a was after after 65 years of their independence.with so much rasicm,poverty,corruption.
india is much better then that



My perception of modern India is that it's huge, dense, chaotic and poor. India has an interesting history and religion. The people are very nice so something seems to be very good about Indian culture although I haven't quite got a grip on the indian worldview (on one hand indian people seem polite, respectful and well behaved but on the other hand they seem deterministic and not feeling responsibility for their society and kinsmen). My impression of indian immigrants in the Western world is very very good.

Honestly, I'd rather live in 1840s USA than India today
