Bangles

“I always loved my bangles. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have bangle on” Padma Lakshmi

This is a repost of my earlier article.

Although Bangles are worn for a style all over the world, the ornament holds special significance in Hinduism.

It is almost similar to the ‘Wedding Ring” in the WesternCulture.

For Hindu, Women Bangles are of Sentimental value, a symbol of good luck.

A Hindu Woman is deemed incomplete without this, so much so even the poorest of the poor wear some form of Bangles.

Thus Bangle Industry is making a kill with Designer Wear etc.

If bangle breaks it is considered a bad omen.

Hindu Festival is incomplete without women wearing the bangles.

The only time married women remove the bangle is either at labour or

when she is widowed.
