Homo Gastronomicus Indianus

India!! A cradle of civilization. The spiritual bastion of the world. A land whose gods are as numerous as people. Where evolution, biological, social and spiritual lost its way and willy-nilly mutated into grotesque shapes, sizes, tastes, lifestyles, faiths and food habits. Where vegetarians outnumber non-vegetarians. Where uber-vegetarians shun everything grown under the earth. The astounding gastronomic diversity of the country has beguiled its ardent followers and fervent critics alike. Culinary art in India reached its epitome in the evolution of a new anthropoid species – Homo Gastronomicus Indianus (HGI). Marked by insatiable hunger, a canine equivalent olfactory system and an ultra-efficient digestive tract, this species though scarcely distinguishable from Homo sapiens sapiens in appearance, is immediately identifiable by the copious salivating tendencies displayed when confronted with any kind of food or even the merest mention of it. The research and analysis wing of HGI flagship organization, ——-, recently circulated a secret report mapping “Must Try” cuisines across all sates of India. Yours truly, by a daring act of culinary coup d’etat acquired a copy of the map, attached here for the benefit of the drooling public. Go ahead; explore it all till your bellies implore you to stop….Cuisines Across India

    May I ask where you acquired this beautiful graphic? I’ve had a request to print it and am looking for copyright info. Thanks!

      Dear Chris,

      I am so sorry, I have absolutely no clue as to where it came from. It was part of an email circulation as far as I can remember.
