Indian nutritional superstitions

India vs. China, Again: An Indian writes that to become internationally competitive in sports, India should emulate China by picking out weak sports with little competition:

Looking at what events suit us best and focusing resources on that. Wasting tons of money on the 100m dash which no Indian is ever going to win in a million years is dumb.

The other thing to do is improve nutrition. But to do that they would have to overcome more superstition about food than ever existed in the rest of the world combined. There's a funny saying about Indians and Chinese. India and China are neighbours. Yet, the Chinese eat anything that moves and Indians fret about Onions and Garlic.
