In many countries you should not cross your fork and knife when you are finished.

So the short version is "Don't bother going to India"?  It's the 21st century guys, time to go with more cutlery use and less "which hand is unclean" absurdity.  That or use toilet paper and wash your damn hands.

Gallant uses the silverware provided.

Goofus, who is from India, eats with the hand he DOESN'T use to wipe his ass, even though he may have applauded something earlier in the day.

Apparently you're supposed to cut all your food up first, put the knife down, move your fork to the wrong hand and then eat the food now that it is cold. (ie Never eat while your knife is in your hand.) I read that somwhere. It was written in crayon so I don't give it much credit.

Maybe everyone should appreciate that they're farking eating and not starving and stop being such whiney, sensitive pansies. Dont eat too fast, make sure you belch, slurp loudly, and don't waste food. But while you're not wasting food, make sure you waste food to make your host think you're full even if you're not. Blow me.

However you've decided to heat your food, you're doing it wrong.

I disregard all customs (even ones around here, apparently) and do things the way I want. Is that OK with everyone?

From what I've seen, it's OK to just ball up the napkin and place it on the plate.  Not sure where the cutlery goes.  I guess if you're expecting desert, you'd just place the appropriate item back where it was.  Unless it's one of those places where you'd expect them to bring another one with the desert.
