Transcript

  • 1. Madina Boomwal Anthropology 102 Dr. Wolfe 02/01/09
  • 2.
    • The Aysola family frequently use their kitchen throughout various times of the day. It is the one-stop shop for snacks, beverages, and utensils. However, during family meals, only Padma Aysola remains in the kitchen to serve her family; no other member can get up from the table to serve themselves.
  • 3.
    • I have noticed that all of my South Indian friends drink from cups like these, found in an Aysola kitchen cabinet. Different sizes are for different beverages. Popular beverages in the Aysola household are organic juices and water; seldom will one find soda or any other non-natural drink.
  • 4.
    • Water ready to boil for tea seems to be a reoccurring theme in all Asian kitchens. We cannot do without our chai. Here in the Aysola kitchen, the tea pot is always ready for use.
  • 5.
    • Every morning Padma Aysola and her mother Subadrah pray to Hindu gods in this shrine they have made in the corner of their kitchen. This is my favorite part of the house. Incense is burned for good luck and health. The shrine is seen under pots and pans in the corner of the Aysola kitchen, right of the fridge and left of the stove.
  • 6.
    • Curry also seems to be another reoccurring theme. Indians, as well as Afghans use Masala, or spices in all their dishes. The Aysola family has dozens of spices to make dishes sweet, sour, spicy and everything in between.
  • 7.
    • Here is a masala rack next to a picture of various Hindu gods. All over the Aysola household are pictures of these gods. Kamesh Aysola's to do list and bottle of water are seen here, among prescription medication.
  • 8.
    • Mrs. Aysola cooks her delicious Indian cuisine here in this oven. The shelves are occupied with other kitchen tools, so Mrs. Aysola leaves her pans here out of the way.
  • 9.
    • Mrs. Aysola literally spices up the kitchen with dishes she learned straight out of the cook-book. The cook books mainly include American dishes, however, the family only follows the vegetarian recipes, strictly following their Hindu diet.
  • 10.
    • Who's gonna clean up that mess? Not me, I just came for the food. Even if one asks to help with the dishes or chores in Mrs. Aysolas kitchen, she refuses. After meals, one must wash their hands and relax; only Padma can wash after the family.
