Hookah smoking is an integral part of Haryana culture. As long as I know I have been hearing that men in Haryana just smoke hookah all day long and women do all the work. It seemed strange to me as a kid but visiting villages in Haryana seems to confirm this. you will see women working in fields, driving, doing all sorts of things and men, well as I heard, just smoking hookah. No offense meant to my modern Haryanvi friends who I know are one of the most hardworking people I know. :)
