TIME HEALS EVERYTHING....this is something most of us might have heard and NO I am not getting "Philosophical"...After about 6 months stay in Baton Rouge...there are few things that's obviously changed in me and my life....and I am going to talk about that...
The first time I tasted "Lays" chips and sipped "Sprite" here, I knew it was not the same as how it tastes back in India. Now I am so used to the current taste of these items, that I can no more recollect how it would taste back in India.
I was under the "superstitious" belief that I would fall sick if I don't eat "Chaats" especially "Pani puri" on a weekly basis and I used to long for it. My mouth waters even now if I think of them!!! But now I crave for Mexican Food, cheesy stuffs in other words basically more of the American food !! Though there can be no comparison between the two. Each have their own place in my taste buds ;-)
Apart from food my weekday and weekend routines have also changed and I am so accustomed to them that I hardly recollect what I used to do back in India [ Off course I remember the important ones but the trivial ones have escaped my mind!!]. Friend's with whom I chat or talk on regular basis find a gradual change in me which I myself don't recognize.
All I can say it "It's all about TIME" and I am not the one to be blamed!! :-D
P.S : On a personal note , I have heard and seen people getting "Americanized" after a few days stay here. And off course I have seen people not liking that change. But now I wonder do we have the right to even blame them ?
