It’s weird but true. It’s laughable but gives a clue. On knowing, please don’t laugh, if it’s not worth getting out of the blues.

1. Lota

Yes, the first and most strange thing is the Lota. Read as لوٹا in Urdu and लोटा in Hindi; Lota is the small, water vessel of plastic, brass or copper that you usually see around in most Muslim washrooms and temples, no matter if they are located in the US, Europe or even Antarctica! But I swear, my ancestors didn’t invent this!

Here’s how the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word Lota.

2. Hookah

Next is the hookah! The waterpipe that they often refer to as sheesha/shisha is a single or multi-stemmed gadget for smoking, in which the flavored smoke is cooled and filtered through water.

This instrument comes from the Arab world and India.

3. Kohl

Kohl, the ancient eye cosmetic which is also known as sirma/surma and kaajal. It is used to darken the eyelids and as mascara for the eyelashes by women. Anciently made by grinding lead sulfide, today the trend is to make it without poisonous ingredients.

So the next time you see Avril Lavigne with smoky eyes and heaps of kohl falling down, first credit it back to the East, then look to opt for a face-palm! :)
