I have always wondered: when Indians migrate to the US, do they also migrate to using toilet paper? I remember my brothers used to always stock up on plastic mugs whenever they returned to the promised land. Now that one is permanently here and the other is permanently there, I no longer have first-hand information. However I notice that bum-washing technology has grown by leaps and bounds in India. A lot of people have installed a sort of spray - which looks like the thing my grandmother used to use to water her roses. And I have found hotels in Maharashtra that have a nozzle built into the toilet seat - look ma: no hands!
