One Sentence Summary: The article studies food symbolism in Brahman-Chhetri culture.

Description: The article studies food symbolism in Brahman-Chhetri culture. This study attempts to reveal a consistency in the symbolic uses of food in various realms of Brahman-Chhetri life. Actually food in Brahman-Chhetri culture is a code through which principles are established and expressed. The notions of fed, unfed, and fed upon serve as a kind of progressive cultural metaphor through which man's physical, social, and spiritual relationships are articulated. It includes 1 leaf of plate and a table with summary of "how Brahman-Chhetri food symbols are interpreted to reveal a broader cultural ideology". (Rajeev Ranjan Singh 2007-01-16)
