The 14 contestants from different places, who have come together to participate in ETV's Indian, started their journey with great energy. On day two of their stay with the Indian team, they have realised that it will not be a bed of roses for them.
Their patience was tested when the host Akul Balaji delayed the lunch for them on the second day. The contestants were seen talking about their hunger. When the anchor stopped before a hotel, the lost smiles on their faces returned.
But when they sat for the lunch, they were shocked to see that they were offered the Ladakh food. The contestants, who are used to South and North Indian foods, were not happy to eat momos, but they were helpless.
Well, Tsunami Kitty dared to reject the food and decided to stay hunger than eating the Ladakh food. However, in the end, he was served rice but he was not given dal. It forced him to use the side dishes, which were given with the momos, to eat the rice.
Post lunch, Akul Balaji introduced them to a village named Phey. He took them to a house where they will stay for the next few days. The contestants were shown the entire house and explained the dos by the anchor.
They were in huge shock when they were told to use the traditional Ladakhi style compost toilets. It upset many, but they could not complain.
The next day, the real test of their survival skills began with new tasks. After waking up in the morning, contestants went numb since water was freezing. Only a few had bath in the morning.
Later, they were assigned new tasks for boys and girls. While men were assigned the field work, girls were ordered to milk the cows. Spoorthi and a few others had a never-before experience after the initial uneasiness over doing it.
To make them happy, the show organisers provided wheat to prepare the South Indian food on their own. Before the end of the second episode, a fight broke out between Tsunami Kitty and a few others. The show editor had a tough time in beeping the vulgar words mouthed by the two parties.
