In an unexpected turn of events, a fluent Hindi-speaking US citizen took to social media to express his dissatisfaction with the high prices of samosas in the US compared to their affordable fares in India.
This remarkable display of language prowess, combined with sheer poignancy, emphasizes the cultural and gastronomic incompatibilities immigrants experience as they travel across the varied landscape of their chosen country.
Drew Hicks, an American, can be seen fiercely articulating his concerns in fluent Hindi in a video that has since gone viral. While samosas are a popular and inexpensive snack in India, they often cost around Rs. 20, its American cousin can cost up to Rs. 500.
Samosas have a special meaning in Indian food and culture. They are a famous street food item that is appreciated by people from all walks of life. Samosas are not just a snack in India, but also a symbol of affordability and accessibility.
