UP Man Gets Judged For Eating Rajma Chawal With His Hands At A Café, Desis Weigh In

There are two kinds of people in India – one who like using their hands while eating and the other who are so proficient with using cutlery that they can even eat a burger with a fork and knife. And they always judge others for their way of eating food especially when you’re eating in a public place.

But shouldn’t this be a personal choice? And why look down upon anyone for using a method that makes them comfortable while eating? To each his own, right?

But this didn’t happen with a guy named Vivek hailing from Uttar Pradesh. When the Reddit user went to a restaurant, he ordered rajma-chawal and started eating it with his bare hands, a common practice still in India. However, when a lady walked past him, she gave him a disgusted look. Her reaction popped a question into his mind. ‘How are you supposed to eat food in a restaurant in India?’
