Well, not the hottest, but you can surely have your COLDEST dining experience, in Leh. The food is hot, but the restaurant is below freezing! For best chances of experiencing this superlative, try any of the cheap Tibetan restaurants, upstairs on the Main Bazaar. The Kashmiri restaurants may disappoint, as they might have sunny windows or even a heater.

This is obscene, and I don't mean the good kind of obscene. There is a lot of malnutrition in India...

When I was young, serving food at weddings involved slapping down more and more food on your banana leaf whether you protested or not. They only stopped when your plate was piled up with food you could not eat. Thankfully weddings (at least in my part of India) are served by caterers now and they don't waste food. Ostentation involving quantity of food (rather than quality) is always sad...it shows a certain insecurity, "I know food is precious in India so I will show I can afford to waste it". Applies to restaurants for the nouveau-riche as well.

Yeah, I wish people would just let others be. Not just weddings, even in homes. The motto should be "Offer, don't compel."

In Maharashtra I would turn my thali upside down and they would place food on it and then the laddus began flying!
But, seriously do any of you holier than thous actually believe that taking joy and celebration out of a wedding would solve India's or any other country's hunger problem? If so you must believe the story in the Bible that Jesus fed the multitudes with a couple of loaves and a fish (can't attest to the accuracy since its been a year or so since I was in Sunday Bible school). For such killjoy folk I always ask them to provide proof of their divinity, say walk on water to Singapore or Hawaii their choice..

That would cut an individual's food wastage, however would not there be overall wastage?

Yes , that will be there. However the food that gets wasted on a plate of a guest is complete waste. On the other hand unconsumed food remaining in containers are eaten later, often taken away by the catering guys or some such.
