Revealed: Hindu Traditions Are Actually Science Driven..

There isn’t a need of any sort of blind belief to qualify for heaven; because there is science behind every single thing. Well, yes. Even Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma functions on the principles of Science i.e principles that can be identified, intuited and experienced.

Here are 7 examples that justify the practices of Hindutva being inspired by Science:

1. Folding Hands for ‘Namaskar’

When we fold hands in Namaskar, it ensures union of the tips of all the fingers; which are the pressure points of eyes, ears, and mind. Joining both hands results in the activation of pressure points all at once which ultimately helps us to remember that person for a long time

2. Adorning Hands With Mehndi

Apart from enhancing the beauty of hands, Mehndi has multiple medicinal properties. Since, occasions like Weddings are nerve-racking, and often, result in headaches and fevers, Mehndi keeps the body and mind cool.


3. Science behind Fasting

The concept of Fasting came into existence from Ayurveda. It sees the basic cause of diseases as the accumulation of toxic materials in the human body. And fasting helps in release of toxic substances from the digestive organs as it lowers the acid content in the body thereby helping people to retain their sanity.


4. Application of Sindoor Or Vermillion

Yes. Even Sindoor has a reason besides notifying about a woman’s married status. Sindoor is prepared by mixing turmeric-lime and the metal mercury. Owing to its basic properties, mercury, apart from controlling blood pressure also activates sexual drive. Interesting!


5. Worshiping Peepal Tree

Although Peepal tree is more or less useless except for its shadow, it needed a strong reason to possess such glorified status. And our ancestors found one. Peepal is one of the few trees (or maybe the only one) that produces oxygen even at night. No wonder why they related it to God.


6. Wearing Silver Toe Ring

As I said, there’s science behind everything. The significance of wearing Silver Toe ring on the second toe is that, a nerve from the second toe connects the uterus and passes to heart. It is said that wearing Silver ring on this finger strengthens the uterus and ensures menstrual cycles are regularized.

7. The Logic behind Charan Sparsh

When you touch someone’s feet, their hearts emit positive energy. Your fingers and palms become the ‘receptor’ of energy and the feet of other person become the ‘giver’ of energy. It enables the increase in cosmic energy, resulting through a quick connect between two minds and hearts.

It Happens Only in India! Funny Facts About India!

India is an extraordinary country and it houses extraordinary people with extraordinary characteristics. India is India. No other place like it. And likewise there are certain things that make me say “It Happens only in India”.

1. We are simply infatuated with the dialogue “Char log kya kahenge” but have never been able to figure out who those char log actually are!


2. Do not talk about families with us. We just treat everyone like family. We are so engrossed into the whole family thing that even Bollywood could not stay away from it.


3. Road traffic here doesn’t merely mean cars. Definitely keeping the value of the words, traffic in India is not only about vehicles; it constitutes cattle, dogs, cats and what not!


4. We celebrate every festival Diwali, Holi, Eid, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Shivratri and many more. You name it, we celebrate it!


5.  We can vote at 18, marry at 21 but can consume alcohol only at 25! They think marrying needs less sense than alcohol.


6. We are so much leen into bhakti that we believe in Babas more than Doctors. Samosa khaya karo, kripa barsegi. Whaaaat??


7. And of course the magnificent train journeys where you’ll find the passengers not only inside the coaches but also above them!


A place where cricket is a religion and Sachin Tendulkar is God. There’s no place like India! Incredible India!
