How do you feel about eating with your hands?
For westerners, it’s a cultural taboo to “play with your food”. However, here in India it’s culturally feasible to do so.
My initiation into eating with my hands occurred when I met a pilgrimage family in Gokarna. They kindly invited me to eat with them in a food shack by the beach offering free food for worshippers. Foreigners aren’t allowed in any of the temples in Gokarna so I was hesitant to enter. Nevertheless, the family encouraged me on.
