It turns out 'ot' is a specific type of tobacco that has been mixed with the ash of certain types of trees. Disgusting. I thought it might be something other than tobacco but it isn't... it was (not sure if it still is) illegal in Turkey (this is hearsay).
It's common here in NYC . I can't stand the smell or the stain that is left by people who chew paan.even some huffaz chew it while sitting down with a cup in their hand to spit in and teach hifz to kids at the same time.this stuff is no different from Yemeni qaat , the other chew. Hey , might as well include that to.
I remember shopping in the bazaars of Karachi many years ago and seeing buckets and cans in the corners of the steps of the mall filled with paan. It looked like blood. Stains from paan were all over the streets and corners. I was walking in a narrow street and a brother from Karachi warned me to be careful because the people spit paan from their windows without looking to see who's at the bottom. Just as he was telling me this, a big spat of paan missed me by a few feet that came from a second story building.i didn't see any one but learned my lesson to stay away from narrow streets.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
