A Project Management funda became perfectly clear to me in the biriyani queue 'let desis deal with desis'. The restaurant sent a white guy in the truck to sell the biriyani. With so many people around and 5 hands holding out cash, poor guy was sweating under pressure.. and he was using iphone to calculate the change due. I need not mention all the people were pissed off due to his slow pace.. poor guy lasted only one Friday.

It was a bad idea to put a white guy between a desi and his biryani. They would tear him apart.

We dont have desi food trucks where I work, but I experienced this at a Robotics event in St. Louis last year. The guy in the truck was handing a plate of samosa to my son and someone just intercepted it. Desis among ourselves have no shame and absolutely no manners.

Hahaha.. Gujarat is most chicken eating state.

Another observation.. Those who swear by organic food, keep saying I never buy meats from Walmart, only Whole foods for my chicken.. Which restaurant cooks organic chicken or mutton or goat?
