You just got back to your desk after lunch when a friend drops by to say hello. After a few minutes of catching up, you decide to continue the conversation over a cup of tea at the little place just around the corner. A waft of freshly prepared samosas reaches you and you decide to nibble on one as you sip on piping hot masala tea.
This is nothing new. In a culture where eating is synonymous to socializing, avoiding food becomes not only difficult but next to impossible. Whether it’s hanging out with friends, or sitting with colleagues, food is a constant company. So much so that we’re filled to the brim and then we stuff ourselves some more.
