India is a land of age-old traditions. While some of them are simply forgotten, others have evolved over the years. One such tradition is the practice of eating food using our hands, which has now been replaced with the usage of shiny cutlery. Even though most of us have turned to spoons and forks, some still prefer to eat with their hands. Actress Neena Gupta is definitely one of them. Her recent Instagram video shows how she loves eating pasta with her hands. In the clip, Neena Gupta is seen relishing white spaghetti with sauteed vegetables with her hands. “Dekho aisa hota hai yeh pasta liya hath se, yeh sauteed vegetables jismai paneer bhi hai aur broccoli bhi hai - sab hath se liya aur isko aisa aisa kar ke khaya (See first you pick some pasta with bare hands, then some sauteed vegetables which include cottage cheese, broccoli among other things. Now we mix it and relish),” she said.
