India is a country where people of different castes, religions and communities live. And they all have their own different traditions. Among these traditions are some of the traditions of India which are unique as well as surprising.
1. Children’s Temple .. A unique tradition is associated with the Shatan Devi Temple (Children’s Temple) located in Ratanpur, Chhattisgarh. Here people pray for the health of their children. People here offer jaggery and tendu sticks to the goddess instead of flowers, offerings and coconuts in the temples. No one knows how this tradition started in this temple, but it is believed that anyone who carries jaggery and tendu wood here will get his wish fulfilled.
2. Lake wedding .. To please Lord Mahadev, Bhima marries Bhimai, in the form of corn or a wooden stick. Bhima marriage followed by Taraiya marriage. Taria marriage is called lake marriage. It is believed that unmarried people should not drink water from the lake before marriage, so they get married in the lake and new mango plants are also married in Ama wedding, so that it bears fruit.
Lakshmi marriage is performed on Thursday, the last day of worship, which ends on Friday morning. Half of the Lakshmi marriage system takes place on the farm. The rice plant left here during harvest is considered to be Mother Lakshmi and is married to Lord Hari and after the marriage is brought home with a procession to the beat of drums.
3. Finding sex. Khukhra village in Jharkhand has a unique tradition of knowing the sex of a child growing in a mother’s womb, which has been going on for the last 400 years. From the shape of the moon on the mountain we know whether the child born in the mother’s womb is a son or a daughter! There is a mountain in the village on which the shape of the moon is formed, which is called Chand Pahar. Pregnant women in the village throw stones at the shape of the moon from a distance. If the stone dropped by the pregnant woman is placed inside the moon it will be a boy and if it is outside it will be a girl. The villagers here have unshakable faith in this tradition.
4. Kinner’s death. Eunuch’s life is a struggle from birth, but even after death they are not released. The eunuch dies at any time, but his funeral is held at night. On the death of someone in the womb, the impotent is badly beaten and abused. Then all seven days remain hungry.
5. The tradition of making tattoos .. It is said that 100 years ago the upper castes in the village refused to allow this community to enter the temple. From then on, he started making tattoos or tattoos of Ram on his whole body including face to protest. People born in this society need to get tattoos or tattoos on certain parts of the body. People who get tattoos or tattoos are forbidden to drink alcohol and it is also necessary to say Ram’s name every day.
Ram-Ram is written on the walls of the houses of most of the Ramnami people and it is also customary to wear clothes inscribed with Ram-Ram. These people call each other by the name of Ram-Ram. Ram-Ram is identified with the way Ram-Ram is tattooed.
Ramnami written Ram-Ram on any part of the body. Shiromani to the one who wrote Rama’s name on his forehead. And he who writes the name of Rama on the whole forehead is called Sarvang Ramanami and he who writes the name of Rama on the whole body is called Nakhshikh Ramanami.
6. The tradition of cursing. Some North Indian communities have a unique tradition of celebrating Bhai Dooj. In this the sisters worship the god Yama and during the worship he curses his brothers to death. Then after cursing, she also atones for him by picking his tongue with a thorn. The belief behind it is that Yama Dwitiya (Bhai Dooj) is not afraid of death by cursing and cursing his brothers.
These are the traditions of India – these traditions show that conservative traditions are still going on in Indian society in the 21st century. Maybe these traditions are carried forward by the people of this society because of their faith, but in reality these traditions have no meaning.
