It’s an Indian thing

This is one thing you will surely experience at Indian parties

Read on…

Visualize this.. 🙂
You are being served snacks at a birthday party by the hosts, a piece of cake followed by a sandwich, a chocolate brownie, spring rolls, chicken 65 & then a cold drink. You are now excited looking at your plate savoring all that’s in front of you..and then after some time comes a second round of serving and then starts what ‘happens only in India’ – what I call the ‘the un-decided phase’

The host comes around serving a second round of cake, chocolate brownies, spring rolls etc..

Host: Have another brownie 

Guest: errr…no it’s fine, it’s okay

Host: have one more

Guest: (I’m thinking) I’m really full  (touching the stomach) 

Host: You won’t get fat by eating one more piece, come on now

Guest: No seriously, its okay… (actually he/she wants it but then what will people think…I eat so much)

Host: (forcibly puts a piece of cake on your plate)

Guest: Thank You followed by a smile

[Do not ever try this in any other country, you may not end up with anything to eat. You always say YES to food abroad]

Its not that Indians don’t love to eat, we do…trust me! we really really do. It’s just that we are always worried what other people will think…and that’s why the hesitation. Ever seen Indians eat abroad? especially when they go on planned tours where the breakfast and dinner is inclusive of the package…we eat like we’ve never seen food. No food is ever enough, some even wrap food in tissues and small tiffins so they can enjoy for later. We’ve all done that some time or the other, its an Indian thing..its like instinct.

What r ya lookin’ at? 

Our thinking is simple…we’ve spent so much money to come on the tour…might as well make best use of the tour cost by feeding ourselves full 😉 and the best part is that nobody is there to judge us. [I guess I just let out our BIG secret]
I hope I have not upsetted my fellow brown people, it is just who we are and we should be damn proud of ourselves. We do certain things that people of other nationalities will never understand, most of them are still trying to figure out the Indian head movement.
