Eating using fingers

Recently, I was asked why do Indians eat with their fingers. I talked about the reasons which I knew – such as provided in this article (link), however I am not really convinced by these reasons.

Are these the real reasons behind this or we were forced by some Vedic rituals?

Can someone enlighten me on this?



  1. I would say “because the good Lord gave us hands before we invented spoons, knives and forks” 🙂
