Everyone loves stories, we have all grown up hearing stories. As much as we love hearing stories, we love sharing ours with others too. This craving to tell people your own story, well this is what a road trip gives you. A story! Of your Own!

Diwali – A Festival Celebrating happiness across the world

With all the lights and colours, Diwali brings happiness and love. It is the perfect occasion to enjoy at the most with your family members. It is the festival of hope, love and lights that we learn from our mythological stories. To many people’s surprise Diwali is not just limited to Indians. It is a festival that people celebrate across the world. Some countries which celebrate Diwali with great pomp and shore are:

MALAYSIA:

malaysia diwali

Almost 8% of the Malaysian population follows the Hindu religion, thus the festival is celebrated with the Hindu rituals in the entire country. The Malaysians also celebrate Diwali with Diyas and visit temples and offer prayers. They also celebrate the homecoming of the Lord Ram in the same way as Indians do. The Malaysians do not burst firecrackers during Diwali, but the lights of the Diyas and the decorations compensate well for the fireworks.

GUYANA:

guyana diwali

This country in South America has been celebrating Diwali since 1853. The people here follow the Hindu calendar and also observe a holiday during Diwali. They celebrate Diwali by decorating their homes, lighting diyas and distributing sweets just like we do, but the people in Guyana also celebrate Diwali by lighting and decorating their vehicles and taking out a rally which is a delight to watch for everybody.

NEPAL:

nepal diwali

Diwali in Nepal is also known as Tihar. It is celebrated over the span of five days which starts from worshipping the Holy Cow and ends with rituals of sisters praying for their brother’s long life.  It is celebrated with great pomp and shore and is a festival which is awaited throughout the year.

INDONESIA:

indonesia diwali

The name Indonesia comes from the greek words Indos which means Indian and Nesos which means Island, so literally Indonesia means Indian Island. Indonesia is quite similar to India in celebrating the spirit of Diwali. The rituals and rights that are performed in Indonesia are almost the same as India. The celebrations of Diwali in Bali are especially very famous.

MAURITIUS:

mauritius diwali

Mauritius has 80% of its population following the Hindu religion. People in Mauritius celebrate with beautiful lamps and homemade sweets. They not only celebrate the victory of Lord Ram over Ravan, but they also celebrate the victory of Lord Krishna over Narakasura. The festival brings oneness in the people when people following other religions also join the celebrations.

BRITAIN:

london diwali

There are numerous Indians living in Britain. Of course to get rid of the feeling of being home sick, the Indians in Britain celebrate their festivals with great enthusiasm. The celebrations start with visiting the temple of Goddess Lakshmi and blowing the conch. Making sweets at home and greeting neighbours is a similar ritual that they also follow.

Diwali is not only a celebration of lights and sweets;  but it is also a celebration of the oneness in diversity. It is a celebration which brings happiness to people across the world. It is the festival of hope that the good will prevail and the dark shall go away.

Team Flamingo wishes a Happy Diwali to all of you 🙂

Why do Chinese people eat Everything !?

They say – ” Chinese eat everything with four legs except tables and chairs, everything that flies except helicopters or planes and everything that swims except submarines !! “

Funny.. Isn’t it? This blog is not a question on the eating habits of Chinese people but an answer to the question popped out of curiosity for the existence of such a unique cuisine culture.

The definition of the word ‘edible’ is a little different for the Chinese people as compared to the rest of the world. Chinese people have the most absurd and bizarre food habits according to rest of the world. The cultural diversity of China is exemplified in the Chinese cuisine. With such a large and diverse population, China has various cuisines, so not all Chinese people eat bizarre things or everything.  The reason why Chinese people eat everything has roots in the history and the culture of the country.

Optimized-food2

One of the main reason as to why the Chinese people eat everything is the large population. Due to the large population, supplying enough agrarian recourse to the entire population had been a hurdle. China has been a victim of brutal famines in the last century and thus, it is said that the Chinese people have adapted to eat any creature that is moving or anything that kept them alive.

Optimized-food

Some Chinese people eat the brains of some animals with a belief that “the body part of the animal that you eat helps grow or enhance that same part of the human body”. These beliefs come from ancient mythology and are still followed by certain groups of people in China.

Apart from this, Chinese people also believe in the medical benefit that they gain from eating various types of meats.

It has also been observed that in ancient China, rich people used to eat certain animals as symbol of luxury. For example; Shark fins. People in China still eat shark fins because these habits have been deep imbibed in them from their ancestors. Till date, Shark fin soups and other delicacies made of shark fins are cooked in ceremonies and celebrations of some kind.

Optimized-food1

Although, Chinese people do not have many religious constraints, they believe in the Buddhist ideology. Thus they believe in not wasting anything and make work with anything that is available. They believe in wasting as minimum as they can and make sure that all the parts of are eaten to not waste anything. This ideology adds to their habit of eating everything.  Apart from this, many Buddhist followers in China are pure vegetarians. Many Buddhist monasteries also serve pure vegetarian food in China.

Optimized-food3

Apart from all these above mentioned reasons, the reasons for Chinese people eating everything goes back to the time when the Chinese people were poor and dependent on agriculture. The cultivation of rice was very vivid in China and so any protein that could be accompanied with rice was eaten. Also, the industrial revolution came late in China. Due to poverty and problems of large population, the Chinese people believed in ‘eat what you get’ and so did not demand for anything that could be extravagant in those times.

It can be seen that the Chinese have different eating and culinary habits which is unlike the habits of the rest of the world. It is extremely important for us to understand that these differences are mainly due to the different culture that China possesses and cultural diversity is bound to happen. We might not want to question the morality of the Chinese people by questioning their food habits and instead accept their culture at its best.
