Sophisticated Behavior

The more I see of what we see of sophisticated behavior, the more convinced I am that it is all about telling the world how much time you have to spend on the trivialities of life. We, Indians, have been utterly remiss in adding our own elements to the world-view of sophisticated behavior and it is about time we started to redress this imbalance.

  3. Interesting. I enjoyed the Masala dosa with fork part. The dexterity with which people sweep the sambar and rice from a banana leaf is worth watching. Unfortunately these days we use the spoon more and more as either the wash basin is far off or we are on the laptop while eating. :(

  4. The rasam with rice off a plaintain leaf is the ultimate in sophistication (or the lack of it) :D We are indeed lagging behind in the department of sophistication.
