Default Re: What does it all mean!? Hookah, Shisha, Maassel, Tobamel, Narghile?

I just remembered something when a woman I work with walked by me as I was grabbing my lunch. I speak with her on occasion about my passion for hookah.

She is about 80 years old and is VERY much from India. When I first got into hookah, I asked her about it with excitement! She knew EXACTLY what I was talking about! Now when you think about that, she is not main stream. She told me about hookah and remembered how she use to set it up for her dad when she was a little girl. She also said people in India called it a hubbly bubbly.

I forgot to mention this conversation I have had with an old-timer from India, proving my point that Americans and India referring to it as a "hookah". Just another name ... I am not saying it is the ONLY name, I am saying it is ONE OF MANY!
