The Aroma from the Indian Cooking and it’s Dilemma
"Your hair smells so good that I could eat it." you turn around, embarrassed, and ask "What do you mean?" He/She replies, "Your hair smells like curry. You always smell like food." How many time have we heard this?
you feel humiliated; especially when you hear someone else say, "I hate that smell.
"I have this beautiful child in my class who is always rejected by other children because she smells. The other children do not like to play with her."
Ethnic foods smell great when they are being cooked or served, but the next day, the aroma on your clothes is not as pleasant. And for young children in schools, the problem is even harder because they can be rejected. Classmates can tell your child out loud,
"You stink. I don’t want to play with you."
And there is little that a teacher can do about it.
For immigrants like us, eating ethnic food is a good way of avoiding homesickness. Personally, I have to get Indian food at least once a day or I feel very sorry for myself. Sandwiches, pasta and pizza are not ‘meals’, they are just snacks. But I wish that, when I was a newcomer, someone had warned me about strong stale curry smell all over my home, car, clothes and hair. If you travel by bus or subway around, you know what I mean. You can tell who ate garlic, fish, or Chinese or Indian food. They may not even know that they have an odor.
Be proud of your cultural heritage. Enjoy your favorite foods. But be aware that other people may not share your preferences. It can be valuable to recognize that your ‘scent’ may work against you as you try to fit into U.S. / Canadian societies. CULTURAL HERITAGE
Food preparation is tedious, time consuming and can bring you on the verge of tears from the smoke and fumes resulted from frying.
If you or your kids are asthmatic, you and them will have problems breathing in the house and end up sick all the time.
Kids go to school and they have problems mixing with the regular crowd because of the odor from their clothes, hair or bags. They have a hard time at school and come home to hate the Indian food and that may lead to your kids isolating themselves from the family and having a hard time fitting in the right crowd.
The cabinets, furniture, walls and your carpet get greasy from the vaporized oil. Leading to more expenses.
