Darn it! Why do I always show up late for these things? *looking around bug eyed*
What'd'I miss? What'd'I miss?

Okay, I just HAVE to pitch in.

1. Aah, the mothballs. Because the moths in hamara Hindustan, like the desis themselves are so very persistent and hard working, unlike the moths here in Amreeka who dont even put in an effort. Thus, the extra strong scented mothballs. Dichlorobenzene plus plus.
2. No, silly, we dont use them for regular wear. *gasp* Do you?! If so, stop. I know we desis inspire hygiene every where we go, but seriously there is a right way to do these things and a wrong way. And spritzing moth ball powder on your daily wear is the wrrrrong way.
3. Aaah, the tongue scraper. The secret to my minty fresh breath. *sticking my mouth in everyone's face* See here, smell. No smell. *sticking a random non-desi dude's mouth in everyone's face* Now see here. Smell. Eww. That's my point.
4. And no, just because we'all eat curry doesnt mean we'all smell like curry. I just know that's coming next. See here *sticking my armpits in everyone's face* Smell me. Smell that juicy fruity smell? And I didnt even eat any fruits today. See, no correlation.

Ohoho. Dont be shy, okay. Plis to ask more qweshuns. We clarify everything.

Wincest seems to be really picking on in the fan fiction world. I am more of a Alexivia person.

As for mothballs, do not fret over it so much. Due to the tropical climate in India moth and mildew damage is rampant, so people will use a mothballs to preserve their clothes. It is simply a habit that follows with Indians. We like our clothes to remain clean and fresh so, we add mothballs to clothes we pack away.

No Mothballs are not used for everyday, but Dichlorobenzene is strong and can linger on for a few days. If someone used it to pack luggage their clothes may have the scent linger. Sometimes I have had a stray mothball end up in my winter jacket and I wear it unaware of that mothball stowaway.

You should not be too judgmental of the mothball scent or be upset by it. It just is a matter of preserving clothing while stored. Besides many people find the scent of dichlorobenzene pleasant, In fact you might find some junkies lining up by the Indian students to obtain a supply of dichlorobenzene.

Dichlorobenzene has a scent similar to camphor and in many cultures camphor is considered to be an aromatic.

One man's ceiling is another man's floor. Sometimes scents and odors that are desirable to other people maybe disliked by others. Ever felt like you would gag and die in an elevator because of the strong perfume the lady who just entered is doused in. Some people hate smokers breath, but others enjoy it. There was a time garlic was considered unpleasant in America, even though garlic and onion breath are frowned upon more and more people enjoy the lingering scent of garlic and onion cooking.

Speaking of Onion and Garlic, my mom just sauteed some to make curry. Hmmmm the house is starting to smell of curry. I will be back after lunch.
