Be it our ability to make the most of every situation, our keen sense of 'jugaad' or simply our daily habits, there are so many peculiar things that unite Indians. Somehow, there are some quirky traits or things that are common to practically every Indian household. One such common denominator is the refrigerator in every Indian home. Typically, there are some foods and drinks which are always found in the fridge by default. So, when a Twitter user took to the micro-blogging platform to share what's in the refrigerator door at his home, it struck a chord across the internet. Take a look:
Do refrigerator doors in all Indian houses have a half lemon & half tomato lying in the space adjacent to the egg tray?
