A sack full of rice will be spoilt when touched by women in periods!
this to give rest to the women in those days. Uneducated ppl dnt understand if you give reasons saying lady undergoes lot of pain so you need to give her rest.....if you say this way ppl vl def follow.
==> Everybody knows and understands pain, educated or not! And if we consider your logic to be valid, it would have been a better (and long lasting) solution to educate the masses, instead of telling lies to them.
Coconut tree, Ashoka Tree, Banyan Tree etc are considered sacred
People used to cut tress for various reasons. Trees above mentioned are very useful to human life.
If there is a sacred feeling then they wont those trees. This is also to reach to uneducated ppl.
==> Same logic as above applies here.... why not educate people instead of telling lies shrouded in religious nonsense?
You can't have non-veg on certain days
Non veg gives you lot of calories and this is jst to maintain health again for uneducated.
===> Any reference material regarding this?
Its a bad sign if u see a dead body when you head out for some work
This is because previously there used to live in joint family where deaths used to occur frequently
and ppl in those days love each other so after seeing the body their mood def gets switched and cannot give his/her 100% to the work he is gng to do.
Do not sleep with your head towards north or west.
South: earth magnetic poles are from south to north and there is iron in blood.
West: your legs vl be on east towards sun. Its a sign of respect for sun.
===> Can you show us some evidence for the validity of the first sentence?
And showing your legs to sun is a sign of respect?
Widow shld nt wear colored sarees or kumkum etc
widows dont have sex life atleast in those times, if a widow focuses on her beauty then she might get diverted which ends up either by having an affair or getting leched.
===>And widowers just waited for the rituals of their dead wife to be over and started hunting for a new bride.... why were widowers not forced to live a life of a sanyasi?
I am talking abt the days these are started when you have uneducated ppl more in number.
It depends on the sense of us how to proceed with these.
===> Educating those people would have been a simpler approach than telling lies....
