Paan, for Indians, is more than just an assortment of betel leaf, areca nut, lime and catechu and other spices. It is a symbol of purity and prosperity. It is used in many rituals, especially those related to marriage. Guest treatment is incomplete without it. Researchers say paan is the favorite pastime of 15-20 million Indians.
