why Indians used neemstick to brush their teeth?
Indians, in general have a mentality that whatever originated in India carry no significance.
When Indians used neemstick to brush their teeth, foreginers ridiculed it and taught us that it is indecent and asked us to start using tooth brush. We did!
Then they laughed at our ancestors for using salt to clean their teeth and we were taught to use tooth paste. We followed!
And we praise this ‘innovation’ of colgate and give zero credits to our ancestors!
