Misconceptions about the East Indians

December 14, 2009

Hi everyone. This is my first post on my new blog named: Bottle Masala (the icon of all East Indians – LOL). I am an East Indian and I intend this blog to be about the East Indians and all things associates with the East Indian (EI)community.
Whilst searching thru the net, I noticed many misconceptions about the EIs. Many people believe the EIs to be from the Eastern part of India – not surprizing, as the name “East Indians” can be quite misleading. Some use the term East Indians to refer to people from India, as opposed to the West Indies. Others believe EIs to be anyone from Maharashtra … the list of misconceptions goes on & on.
I hope to sort our some of the confusion with this blog as well as to revive various traditions, customs, foods, etc. of the EI community.
