Learning to eat with the right hand

Over the past weeks I have been learning from many kind people about how to eat with the right hand. Why? Because in Chennai, where I will be from January to March 2020, many people eat with the right hand. In the learning process, I picked up a few useful tricks:
  • Try with the tip of your fingers to form, what you eat, into a little ball.
  • Use your thumb to push the food from the tip of your hand into your mouth.
  • Keep the palm of your hand untouched by food.
  • Use your thumb to clean your hand.
  • Avoid licking your fingers.
  • Avoid using your left hand to eat. Why? Because the left hand is used primarily when you go to the toilet. Use your left hand to drink.
