"Like the Water Mr in the section of a grocery store, customers will be sprayed with a fine antibacterial Mr, twenty seconds the same amount of time. We should be washing our hands. Unfortunately, there have been a few hiccups in this well meeting plan while testing the new system at a CBS. Some customers complained of the miss ruining their clothes, hair or makeup and left him dripping with. One customer was quoted as saying. This is ridiculous. Everyone is soaking wet and flammable. One static shock and this whole place will go up flames I came in for allergy medicine, not indoor slip and slide, but it did make my shopping trip faster though I was able to pick up some items as I slid through the aisles, a customer that threatened to sue because her desire suit was ruined as she barreled down. The makeup style was informed that she couldn't sue. Do the damage injury waiver that was on the last ten inches of her CVS receipts. CVS spraying down their customers with disinfectant before they're allowed to come in making them somewhat slippery. Your next story of a safety solution comes from Peter Gross. The Dunkin donuts in Clinton Connecticut has been opened for drive thru service ever since the pandemic struck in March, but when the state move to phase three of its reopening this week, the store was finally allowed to have customers come inside. We were really excited to see some of our regulars face to face again, said store manager Lisa Kobe. Her franchises smaller than most Dunkin's though in Kabul was worried about covert exposure in such a tight space, so she asked for a little leeway from corporate and came up with a really intriguing idea. The six foot doughnuts, which was introduced on Monday is the perfect combination of edible food item, and once in a century pandemic safety protocol. How does the six foot? Don't work well if? If you've ever been inside of an inner tube than you know what it's like not to just order, but also wear a donut upon entering the store you were given your choice of glazed chocolate, vanilla or pink icing with sprinkles customers simply slipped the six foot donut over their head until they're comfortably encased in the six foot in diameter, forty five thousand calorie twenty five pound. Fitted with suspenders to help keep it at waist level. You can either start eating your way out of the doughnut in the store or take it home with you and enjoy the equivalent of seven hundred and fifty donuts at your leisure so far Cobo is thrilled with how it's working out. People have really been enjoying coming back into the store, strapping on a donut and bouncing. Bouncing up against other customers like they're in bumper cars. The CDC is proclaimed the six foot donut as ninety percent effective at preventing transmission of Corona virus, but one hundred percent effective at giving you a new malady called type two donut. Beatty's six foot donut served at a Dunkin donuts that people put around their waste to make sure they keep safe distance from the other. Other customers. Your last story of protective measure comes from Jesse Klein, a speed with which the pandemic has changed. Every aspect of our lives has been stunning, but at one pub in England. The changes are quite literally shocking in an effort to enforce social distancing among boozy crowd. One tavern owner in Cornwall installed an electric fence inside his bar to keep an abbreviated clients at. At Bay Johnny McFadden owner of the Star in tried several different tactics before going with the fence, but apparently things like ropes, floor stickers, and the fear of covert itself were no match for customers consuming one pint too many, so finally inspired by the electric fences, commonly used to keep sheep together in his rural farming town. He plugged in an apparently the threat of electric. has worked fairly well, says McFadden quote people are like sheep sheep. Keep away, people keep away. Some might be concerned at a bar owner whose installed a live electric fence and his establishment is opening himself up for many lawsuit, but as McFadden sees it quote as long as there's a warning sign on an electric fence and you are warned about it. It's totally legal McFadden, maybe no lawyer, but he's got a doctor's concern for the health of his customers and cheers to that all right gaffey somewhere there is a business that is opening up with. With one of these concessions to safety in the age of Covid is it from dual say CVS that started spraying down customers with disinfectant before they come in the door from grouse Dunkin donuts that selling special six foot donuts that you actually put around your ways to make sure you keep distance, or from Jesse a pub in England that has installed an electric fence to make sure that nobody gets too close. Which of these is the real story? I'm really think story that sounds plausible. Is the bar all right Kathy your choice. Then is Jesse story of the bar with the electric fence while we spoke to the innovator who came up with this new safety precaution. As long as there's a warning sign on an electric fence, it's totally illegal, and as the fear factor it works. He says in that accident. It sounds true. That was Johnny McFadden Landlord of the Star in the bar with the electric congratulations Kathy. You got it right year into point for Jesse. You've won a prize, the voice of your choice in your voice. You did it. I love it. Thank you so much, cathy thanks for playing and stay safe. Thank you.

It's like you know the human version of Len. Dogs can hear whistle set humans can't. That's awesome, so, but you didn't technically know that you had this ability, but did you know there was something different about your growing up? Did you know that you were special? Yes, I did I. Don't know about special, but definitely my family thought I was weird or strange, because even when I was a toddler I really enjoyed very spicy. Spicy foods very spicy for Indian cuisine, and so I would always seek out really spicy pickles in Chile's in my grandmother's kitchen, and they kept moving those jars, higher and higher on the pantry shelves, and then I would just climb them like the Monkey, and basically you know one times there, and the glasses oil the in it slipped from my hand in it now and I'm just hanging there for a really long time, because if I jumped down, I would've jumped onto Glasson, oil and. on save need, but I always had buried keen.

Because he thought it would might make him smell a little better one can help. I, consider myself a decent cook, but I've gotten so bored with my own cooking. I just can't think of anything that interests me to eat anymore I'm like. Can they invent a new animal or something? Just Aga- my own cooking. Believe me the other day I was I. Can Somebody Else Cook please? Your daughter is like I'm going to make a cheerios castle. You are going to love with topped with dried apricots.

"Streaming on Hulu called taste the nation in which she travels to cities around country, tacking about and tasting foods that were brought here by immigrants and that have shaped American food culture. She cooks with her mother in the episode about Indian food. Luxury came to America from India when she was four. She's also the author of cookbooks and a memoir, and as a host and judge on the cooking competition series top chef. She started her career as a model and actress. When we left off, we were talking about how photographer Helmet Newton found the long scar on her arm beautiful. The scar was from a car accident when she was fourteen and still healing from painful, blistering rare skin. Condition called Stevens Janssen's syndrome. So you know I. I had mentioned that you were in a car accident when you were fourteen. What happened in the accident? We were driving on a Sunday and we were on the highway, and we were rear ended, and we fell down an embankment, and we were trapped in the car. We were cut out of the car by something called the jaws of life. You know which are big huge metal cutters, and my parents were airlifted to one hospital, and I was taken by ambulance to another I fractured my hip and I broke my right upper arm or humerus bone I also broke my hand, because at some point, my hand went through the windshield I. Don't know if it was to save us or whatever. My mother broke five ribs and her sternum. And her arm as well, and my stepfather broke his leg in four places in his hip into. Sin So horrible. It was horrible. We were all homebound and in bed for months afterwards. Who took care of you? None of you could take care of each other. We had one to one nursing that was around the clock, and my mother was brought home and had a hospital bed for months after the car accident, and after she had come out of the hospital, it was horrible, and it happened exactly two days after I got out of the hospital with Stevens Johnson Syndrome, and the only reason my mother took me out because she's a religious Hindu woman, and she promised that she would do penance by performing a ceremony at the Hindu temple, which is fifty miles from where we live, and on the way back from the temple. We have this car accident. It was horrible, did that make her lose faith? No, but it made me lose faith. My, Mother's amazing. She all her life up at five, thirty in the morning, and prayed, and lit incense, and read from the Romina and then she cooked some of our dinner, and then got ready for her shift at the hospital, and then came home after a full shift and cooked and all that stuff that women do when we have to. You lost your faith. Yeah I mean I. Is that a cat I'm hearing that. Yes, that's my cat rowdy in the background. I think he's hungry. Okay. So I did lose faith. I mean I, think I always vaguely believed in God, and I went to the temple when my mother took me, but I've always been a very secular person. But actually did a moth story about this about the car accident and losing my faith I I didn't I didn't know what to make of it I couldn't understand a god that would make me so sick and then allow me to get out of the hospital only to go right back in such a traumatic and violent way. It was very very very bad car accident. I mean..

"David Welcome back to. thank you so much. I'm thrilled to be here, so your latest book is about drinking French, and it covers among other things, para teeth. The French have a very different meaning associated with that word. What is para? It's not just the cocktail. Well a para chief. It's the time of day between when you're done working and when you're going to have dinner, it's kind of a transition time you know the word comes from the Latin. You know to open up it sort of mentor. Open up your appetite for dinner, but in France also people eat late the alcohol. These cocktails appear Atif are not supposed to be like a sturdy American cocktail with three ounces of alcohol so. So, just describe what therefore and what they're like well a lot of the Pera tapes that we that we associate with France such as do bony lillay variously were health tonics had quinine in them, which one distiller told me goes it. That was the CBD of the Eighteen Ninety S. it was quite everybody wanted quinine. They used to have much higher alcohol content, and then they lowered the alcohol down, so they were more drinkable. Ice Cubes in them and so forth. And I think some of that might have been modeled after pestis. When that became popular, everyone was sort of leisurely drinking list drank adding to this class over the course of several hours. You talk about cafes a lot and you say I often referred to cafes. Is The living rooms of Paris? Everyone's welcome to gather there whether you're spent the night sweeping. The streets are working the streets. How does that play into this whole story about drinking and apparent teves well people? It's hard to underestimate the importance of a French cafe to a French person. I was I was in Italy a few years ago and I was like where all the cafes and there are cafes, but it not like Paris where there's like five on every block, just wanted every corner, French equal, or so into being convivial with their friends, meeting their friends, and they use cafes, not just somewhere to get a drink, but it's really somewhere to spend time. It's sort of like your home away from home. Well. We spoken about this before. But the you talk a lot about the French are really good at doing nothing in particular, but really enjoying the moment, and that plays into your whole book drinking from Yes. Yes. I I'm somebody that always has to be doing something and I really had to dial down my you know my own expectations of of my ability to just you know, turn off in. Just sit somewhere and be. Newsy and French verb to be. and. You know it's taken me a couple of years actually I can do it. I can go to a cafe and do nothing, but it's hard. I usually have to bring a book with me or I bring my laptop. But the French are very you go to cafes in. Someone's just sitting there for like three hours. And they're thinking about stuff. which is something that I aspire to? Let's talk about specific drinks you right? I marveled at the barrels of wine, left in the open Mediterranean air to intentionally oxidized became vermouth. I didn't know. vermouth is oxidized wine I. I thought it was wine. Our alcohol flavored with herbs and some other things you know all these things were the same to me. There were a lot of discoveries you know I always felt like. Like I know Vermouth, it's a it's a wine fortified aromatized wine with herbs and spices in it, and then I went. I went down to Marcel Annoy Lee Pratt vermouth is made, and they had thousand barrels outside, and they said yes. That's the flavor of our vermouth. The wine used to come from Spain on boats, and it got oxidized, and we wanNA keep that going. So, learning about what makes all these things different and interesting such as oxidizing wine intentionally for a year in the open air, give it a little saltiness and age. Surly the point, my life where I think a little saltiness in which is. Pretty pretty good I'm all for that, I'm making my living being salty in aged. At this point you and me both. You also mention a drink which you like. Call the long hello. Could you talk about that? Because that really appeal to me, but I love the name that was invented by a bar man called Damian Bolt. WHO has a bar? Really Great Bar in Brooklyn called Grand Army, and he came up with this cocktail, which has calvados in Apple Brandy from Normandy and then elder flower liqueur, and then you top the glass office, Champagne and a little nutmeg. And what's interesting about the French is they often say Oh, you should never defile wine or champagne like. Do not put ice in it do not. All these rules, and then there's all these drinks like the Kiro. The basically that you champagne as a base you know and they you add stuff to it. It's interesting because years ago, I went to a champagne dinner. With the owner of the most prestigious Champagne House and he said to me, you're better off putting an ice cube in a glass of champagne than drinking a warm glass of champagne. So. What's the difference between entertaining and France versus entertaining here in the states? Okay well. Actually read an article once for Ex pats about how to get used to going to a fringe party, because Americans are usually boisterous and lively, and are moving around and meeting people and having fun. Where's the French are more into discussions, so it's a different atmosphere. I, often joke like I've never been to an American dinner party. Where English grammar has come up as a point of discussion and debate and I think every French dinner party I've been to. Someone has brought up something about the French language people. Say Oh, you know you use the past participle of at, and it should be the imperfect. But my partners French and he told me he goes. You need to smile more. Oh. Tell! You don't smile and Paris because they'll know. You're American I was like I'm trying to look more friend. She's like you need to smile more. David Lee evinces outdone the French. David, it's been a real pleasure. Thank you for coming back to monster. Yes, it's always a pleasure to talk to you next time I see you. I think we should have a cocktail or two pair of teeth. Thanks David Bye bye.

"Don't realize that many. People were brought here through certain West African countries because of their specialized knowledge in rice health relation so. You know they weren't just like random labor. They were brought here because they had body language that the white folks who are buying in signed did not. It is the engine that yields the economy especially in the south, and the northerners are not. Free for not staying because there were insurance companies in New York who you could ensure. You're slave like human. Short your house or you know now your car so I learned off this stuff in the in the research. And I'm really happy to be able to do. The African American episode in that part of the world, because Lucia culture is very well preserved because they had built bridges I've heard the term Gulag itchy. Can you tell me what it refers to or or what it means while it all the African American people who are descendants of enslaved people who came to the Carolinas Georgia Suzuki great are called Gala Jichi it that name. It comes from the African language African tries. Depending on which southern you talk to and forty percents of America's in slave labor. Through the port of Charleston. And so it was the first stop for a lot of African in sage ego, when I got here so because they didn't build bridges to the Sea islands until the fifties back, culture was preserved language, which is actually in amount of nation of different African languages in dialects. That's why we go. There relook at Red Rice. Because when you look at the dish, the southern dishes red rice, you can see that so clearly the descendant of Jolla fries from Fiji area. And so I wanted to look at that because we never think about African American on its own, you know we think about soul food. What does that mean? That's a general? Southern Food and you know most of southern food it can be argued was actually made. African American. It's really exciting to talk about your show during this time. They because it does gives moments of hope you know because I. think that your mission to open up dialogue through talking about food and this broader picture would. Do also, it's a lot of fun like it will make you hungry. It will make you have the munchies about ever sloping anything because. The cinematography is very purposeful. I wanted a lot more in there, and they certainly have experienced in years and years during television's know how to do that. Yeah I hope that it's really entertaining, and then that you come away. I mean a good time, but really learning a lot that starts hunger stations. That people's dinner tables well. Thank you so much other Padma. It's such a good show. It really is I. Love It that you're speaking to this big broad issue, which is the idea of creating community that. That appreciates each other and how we can grow learn, thank you. Thank you..

Has that been a weight in your life and I say this, because made a living off of plain dumb characters. Jason Smart Versa do that. You know it's not. It's not an accident. Thanks I think early on in my career, especially as it relates to top chef. I felt a huge amount of imposter syndrome. I thought someone was GonNa find out that you know. I didn't know what the Hell I was talking about because I'd never worked in a restaurant on the and you know I never went to culinary school, so I did feel insecure about people na. Also because. The thing you know. I was a model for so long and I went to college before I started modeling. Thank God because my mom made me, but you know people didn't really know that, and even if I have a degree so what I think I felt. An extraordinary amount of guilt is the truth because? They were people in my family with graduate degrees for genuinely brilliant. Who made a fraction of what I did for basically Jane around dating sooner lingerie so I had huge chip on my shoulder about that I. don't anymore visiting. My writing has spoken for itself and and I think I have enough humility to. You know honestly admit when I don't know something because I know that. That's the trip to finding out about it rather than pretending so I don't feel that anymore. But I did feel that even not been so six or seven years ago. Well, there's nothing rational about a degree of defensiveness. Go because we get that. We over here. Somebody being like Oh. Yeah, honest, dylan hair, makeup or like. I don't know there's something wrong with her bra or we're just a little infiltrations. Zachary Which? Rich trivializing of my needs yet. So therefore, part of the reaction is like no way I. Want to show you guys. A value that I'm here for a a good reason that I can contribute. I don't mean to speak for you, but. I think that that's that's where my defensiveness came from an it is dissipating as I get older for sure. Partly because I'm exhausted I think. At the minute entertainment you are expected to look one way and you do get objectified annual physical appearance attractiveness. Regardless of what role you're playing is a major factor in how much you are. Like that just interest, I wish it were in there.

Of US and then we get ridiculed for carrying about that stuff I don't care. Beautiful I mean I do 'cause I'm vain but like. I look a certain way on top chef for varies, think economic reason. To, keep the show fresh to keep it exciting to keep a glamorous is. We're going to fancy restaurants and everyone else except for and I are in either chef codes or ties, so we want to make it enticing visually television as visual media, but I conceal the eye rolling sometimes and now I just don't care. I love that Padma when you resume filming tastes the nation. How do you feel about bringing along an actress to? Know. These things. Right along with. I want to ride along with w awesome. What was your favorite episode to shoot? Or what surprised you the most? The German zone supplies me the most. That was kind of a fine episode that didn't have like a modern the heaviness in some of the other episodes we do, but I really learned allow by learned that there were two very popular successful German language newspapers in the twenties in Milwaukee I learned that you can put your child in the Milwaukee Public School and have them go learn all of their subjects in German like not as second as immersion program, and then with both of the world wars. Nobody wanted to identify his German so they. Painted overall there. German signs all that stuff. I learned that the Ph of the water in Milwaukee is very similar. June the lake immune add. Wide Beer. Culture proliferated so interesting. The most important episodes remain was the African American episode. We shop community. South Carolina. Sixty Saint Helena and that was a very gratifying episode doing because. While Autism African Americans are considered immigrant stay are the product in descendants of forced migration, and we never looked at their cuisine, independent of their attachment to white colonialists, and so I wanted to look it back in place, African American food in its own ancestry, because it's a big part of our culture. We're benefiting from it now. Like most people.

"You started out as a model and you moved into the culinary world. Those are very different worlds. Did you ever get nervous about moving from one to the other I think imposter syndrome is something that we talk about a lot and clearly I mean you've done this so well. It's like now you're synonymous with. Food and food media and restaurants, but back then when you were thinking about making this transition, what were some of the first steps? How did you begin to think about it? Well. You know it was kind of a fluke. I'll be the first one to admit that I got that first contract because I think it was just like a marketing ploy like everyone wants to know. What a model I don't think anyone thought that it would actually be a good cookbook or do Alan because it. WanNa prize in Versailles, people started noticing and at first it. It was hard. Because you know, the response would often get even by journalists by the way, and even after I had won, the award was like we'll do. Models really eat. Yes, we really eat. We're just freaks of natures. Also, there was no other instance in the media where there were models talking about food, except like how to drop five pounds in a day or something. So.

"But most people, most human beings on this earth have much more visceral emotional relationship to the food that feeds them consistently in I wanted to look at that because the identity of the food is reliant on the identity of the people eating it. And that was interesting to me and so when I hear you know Rosa in the Peruvian episode. Talk about the tamales that she gets to her students, or you know I talk with Nawaz. Varian who I cook with for her family and I had a lot to talk to her about because. I was already familiar with her cookbook I had actually judged it for you know food contests, but also because she had children who were bi racial like me, and so I, wanted to see how she navigated that and how her kids were very similar in age to Krishna. Felt about their food, and so scenes like that, it was the quiet moments you know when NAS picks up the book and reads the poem in Farsi that her mother wrote about Iran in Nineteen, eighty two. That is so. Applicable to what's going on today? I got goosebumps and I felt like it was a huge privilege to go into these people's homes and see with their lives rely, and and really you know, have them share very deep intimate feelings about their own identity about their own place in American society about how they were dealing with the world through work just through living. That to me was a gift. Because you scratch the surface and everyone has an interesting story. You just have to be patient and willing to let it come out of them the way they want to say it. Now. It's time for our segment. Bad Asian confessions is where we sort of talk about a time where we're some situation or happenstance made us feel like a bad Asian, and we usually lead by giving our own. Betty's and confessions and today. Mine is like I feel I kind of a bad Asian because I'm like so into Japanese culture that I feel like.

Fernando Valley there have been a lot of interesting conversations about Indian American identity with respect to the shows presentation of it and I'm just wondering A. Have you been watching? And what are your thoughts oh? Yeah, I. Mean obviously don't follow me on instagram frame because they. Did a post about it. We watched it after top chef finished last, Thursday and top chef finishes airing at eleven pm, so we started as a family to watch it at eleven PM, and we watch the whole season. We binged all ten half an hour episodes at once. We didn't go to bed that night. Until like three thirty four in the morning, it's great because first of all regardless of whose culture it's about. The writing is superior, and it captures you know the different concerns and insecurities of parents and teenage children, and it also captures the push and pull of. An immigrant family living in a Western country, so you know there's so much in that show to identify with whether you're south Indian or not, but you know as somebody who is Indian and has grown up in this country I am used to seeing Indians represented in subject caricaturist way characteristic way out enough you know like. In the simpsons. And you know to be fair. There are many Indians in this country that fit that stereotype that affluent bodies, but that is the only stereotype that is not even the reality of what most Indians are like an India is a very special country, because it's like Europe under one government, so you can travel for just an hour by car and people will be speaking a different language, not a different dialect, necessarily a different language, a language that is as different. From the other language, our way as German is to French with different route, languages and everything else and people will be praying to a different God and dressing a different way, an eating different foods, so it is hard to represent the. Variety of the Indian Day. Ask for it to begin with you know. Whenever I saw Indians on TV. They were always called tale. A main were always north Indian and you know all the eight was tenderly chicken. And you know many Indians in India are purely vegetarian so to see. I almost had tears in my eyes through my laughter, because to see a Indian family to hear a mother called her child Ghana, which is what I call Krishna. My biracial daughter was a huge moment for me. I would have killed for show like that. It would've made my adolescence a lot more bearable..

A divorce just didn't happen in Indian culture in growing up and going back to India I still don't know I know one person in India. WHO's divorced? You know, and so I knew that we were leaving to have a better life, you know. My mother left when I was two and I lived with my grandparents, and I didn't see my dad so I had no recollection of my real father I didn't even know what his face looks like. Because they had ripped up all the pictures so from two to four. I didn't see either of my parents so I literally was so excited to come to America, because America to me, meant being reunited with my mom. That's obviously a story that you. Write about beautifully. You know experiences that you write about beautifully and reflect upon in your memoir. Some much of what you also write about is. The role that food had to play in your connection with your family in even getting you through hard moments like you describe o'clock Chutney in the opening of your memoir that really got you through. That was a recipe from your grandmother. and I wonder how you feel that that your relationships were shaped or enabled through food, and what that has meant to you along the way if your journey. I think food was a conduit to. Keeping close ties with my family, you know once I came to America and my mom and I settled here. Occupied this third space that many Asian American kids do which is you know? I wasn't Indian enough and I didn't adhere to. In India for children. You know so I wasn't Indian enough there and certainly when I was in America, I wasn't American enough for my American peers were my teachers, or whatever and I occupied this. There's base that was basically made up of a little bit of this a little bit of that image culture, and and so food for me was a pure way that was also noncontroversial to have connection with my family like even during this quarantine. You know we have a family. What's up of all? My cousins and everything and I have been reaching out to my aunt to ask her some fact checking questions about recipes for my childhood. I really love my aunt Bunn she. She didn't like her very much growing up, but she's the only reason I can balance a checkbook you know because she was like a second mother to me when I was sent back to India and she helped me. Tutored me because Indian, schooling is so much harder than American schooling, and there were certain years that I was sent back to study at an Indian school and I found it incredibly difficult and I just felt always like the class dunce in those years I was like behind by like a great and a half. And so you know also Indian. Forms of learning are very different than American. School systems forms of learning so. I should say so, you know. I needed my aunt so badly and she performed for ROIC. Feet that now. In quarantine with home, schooling, appreciating like on Mother's Day I wrote her. This taxing like you've always been like a second mom to me and I can never repay you so. But the way that we'd today. Communicate is really through food and the exchange of recipes and stuff like that.

"Bodmer. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, I think it's really cool. What you're doing because I would have loved something like this when I was in Asian American teenager. So I'm pleased that you know this generation of young Asian Americans will have that. Maybe they can grow up without some of the baggage that we have. Baggage and should but yes. I wanted to talk a little bit about you. Know your upbringing in your memoir, which is called love loss and what we ate. You talked about growing up in new. York and L. A. and I had no idea you. You grew up in in Los Angeles. Where did you grow up in L. A.? And what were your experiences like? I grew up in La. Puente which is in the San Gabriel, Valley Yeah. Winter Workman, highschool my mother got transferred from Sloan Kettering Hospital in New, York, to city of Hope Hospital in Duarte or are Katie I. Guess, and so that's why we moved and I went to High School in San Gabriel Valley, so yeah. I mean I consider myself such a New Yorker, because of the New York's along. It was my first point of entry into the United States when I immigrated here when I was four in. So you know that's what winds up getting a lot of play in my personal history, but I have very slowly formed deep memories. Of My years in La Pointe. Day, and you know my mother still lives in the house. I grew up in so whenever I come to La I always wind up going there, of course. Did you like growing up in L. A.? Did you like growing up La Puente? Was it a cool place to grow up, I, did not. Bad at my mother for moving to Los Angeles for years I, really? How's it against her? My poor mom, she's a single mom, and she's from south India and so she couldn't take the cold. And you know expensive to live in Manhattan, and so I understand as an adult, and as a parent all the reasons that she, of course you know moved us across the country as a child, it just seemed hugely inconvenient and down because in new. York I was much more independent because everybody walks, and you're in a very densely populated metropolitan area in Los Angeles says you buy as no like there's no center. There's no downtown in especially in La Pointe Day I was in a suburb and you need a car to get. In so, I felt like my independence was with stifled drastically, just moving cities, and then I was also I was in La Pointe Day I wasn't in like Sherman oaks or something. So you know in the eighties. When I was in high school, there were a lot of gangs in la, Puente and other than South Central. La It was a very seriously dangerous place we had. Had, Mexican. Gangs. We had a lot of Tolo and SCHOLLA's. And some of them are friends, but some of them also bullied me, and so I had my little conclave of friends who were mostly Filipino because our school did have a lot of Mexicans a lot of Filipinos lot of African Americans probably the most Mexican, and also Caucasian, but from my freshman year my senior. Senior year, you could really see the population of the schools you much more ethnic, in Brown and so I found it hard. You know because I'm Indian, and my skin is Brown on face value you could think I was Mexican may be, but then once I opened. My Mount was obvious and I don't think they were enough Indians at my school for anybody to form any. Any kind of opinion about me except other you know actually I'm curious. You mentioned that you were not super happy about the move to La for a while, not happy that your mom made that move and of course. That's a huge move from New York. New York is a huge move from India. Where much of your family is? When did you and how did you? come to understand your mom's journey and your mom's reasons for moving both of you so far well I understand that those moves were born of necessity. I understood why she didn't feel totally comfortable in New York, but I'm different than my mother, you know my my mother is is not as curious about being in the world, and just traveling and bumping up against other people, whereas that's all I wanNA do. You, know so I knew very very early on even when I was four that the reason we were leaving India is because it was very taboo for my mom to be a divorce. A divorce just didn't happen in Indian culture in growing up and going back to India I still don't know I know one person in India. WHO's divorced? You know, and so I knew that we were leaving to have a better life, you know. My mother left when I was two and I lived with my grandparents, and I didn't see my dad so I had no recollection of my real father I didn't even know what his face looks like. Because they had ripped up all the pictures so from two to four. I didn't see either of my parents so I literally was so excited to come to America, because America to me, meant being reunited with my mom.
