Geography and foods

Foods and food habits vary drastically with the geography of the region. Food also forms an important cultural link between generations, or between migrants and their homeland.

In India, consumption of food is regarded as an offering, a Yagna. Thus the stomach is considered to be a homagunda (holy fire) and all the food consumed is an offering to the holy fire.

In Japan, Tea drinking is a fine-art and there is an elobarate ceremonial about it. Not drinking tea in the right way is considered to be an act of barbarianism.
