Whenever I am abroad and go to an Indian restaurant, we of course eat with our hands, full Indian style. However, I am always very conscious that other native patrons are giving me a look as if we are uncivilized. As an Indian eating in an Indian restaurant you shouldn't give a f*** about other people, what's with the low self esteem here? Alot of foods are eaten by hand, Americans eat their 'Latin' foods such as nachos, tacos, enchiladas etc. all by hand, how it's supposed to be.
