Know hookah history.

July 31, 2009 Leave a comment

Hookah was originated in north western provinces of India along the border of Pakistan in Rajasthan and Gujarat nearly a millennia back. These hookahs were usually made from a coconut shell base and tube with a head attached. These simple and ancient hookahs were primarily designed to smoke opium, and hashish.

The hookah made its way through the Persian Kingdom, which also included Pakistan, Afghanistan, much of Middle Asia and Arab parts of Northern Africa and acquired tombeik on its way through Persia.

500 years ago, when the hookah made its way into Turkey it undergo a surge of popularity among the upper class and intellectuals and led to change in the design. They grew in size and complexity and became similar to designs that we are more familiar with today. Brass and glass were added to the design and less wood was used, beautiful paintings were added for beauty and elegance.

The popularity grew into hookah coffee shops in Turk society two to three centuries ago. A hookah bar waiter was treated similar to a chef because of the preparation for hookah smoking. The packing and moisture was a skill, and it was considered rude to touch the coals. Hookah smoking migrated south into the Arab world from Turkey to Lebanon and Syria.

It was then spread to Egypt and Morocco where it is known as sheesha. It is also know as the hubble bubble in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Today, hookah bars are social places where many people get together to discuss politics and local events. In Delhi there are many places serving hookah and these hookah joints are quite popular among the youngsters. Flavors like Mint, Chocolate, apple etc are available. The hookah is no more considered a social taboo.
