I’m not a knife-and-fork Indian.
But that’s because…I’m not Indian :-)
(And I tend to not use a knife…).
But what’s wrong with someone who eats with a knife-and-fork?
How can you preach unity for Trinidad & Tobago while calling some Indians traitors to their race for running in any party they choose (now, I might consider some people traitors to their country for supporting a dictatorship…but that’s different). That’s not unity. That’s preaching race politics. Yes, we know everybody pushes race but at least don’t be so obvious.
How can you call for unity at the same time as you are insulting the people you want to woo? Serious case of right hand not knowing what the left hand doing (or the right brain cell not knowing what the left brain cell doing…yes! you only have TWO brain cells).
Back to the knife-and-fork…if you are preaching unity, doesn’t it seem contradictory to separate based on how you eat? Why can’t the people who eat with hands and the people who eat with a knife-and-fork unite to save the country. Are only the people who eat with hands deserving of being saved?
On a side note, don’t expect me to eat with my hands if you don’t provide decent facilities to wash my hands before and after I eat. But then, you probably don’t wash the dishes too well so I’m doomed anywayz…(doomed to die of starvation).
