Are you actually telling me that I should eat uttapam's  without cheese even 
if I like to eat it with cheese, just because the local Onion uttapam seller 
is losing out on my business.  Looks like you're getting it backwards.  The 
seller is there to meet my needs, and not the other way around(My purpose in 
life is not to provide business to the local Onion uttapam seller, despite 
the fact that he sells something that I have no desire to eat.).  I don't 
quite see why everyone else in the society needs to have a say in what I 
eat.(as long as I'm paying for what I eat)
