No..No… I am not talking about the Helmet, that the Indian Lady is wearing while riding the two wheeler and the lessons regarding advantages of wearing helmet etc. etc

If you look a bit closely…you notice that the woman is wearing tightly knit jasmine flowers

why the Indian women,especially those from South India wear the flowers on their hair without fail, everyday?

One Mr. Ramdoss in ‘Yahoo Answers’ got annoyed for this question and replied like this.

‘This is a tradition in India. Just like this there are social and fashion traditions in other parts of the world also. Why don’t you question them? Why does a man wear a tie in front, not at the backside? Stupid question, is it not ? It is stupid to ask a woman in India why she wears flowers. It is stupid to ask a widow in India why she does not wear flowers or wear a red spot on her forehead. This way you can go on questioning every custom all over the world. Why do you question the customs and practices of India alone. When the other parts of the world were cavemen, India had a great civilization working’.

But I felt it would have been proper for him to explain the importance/significance/purpose of Indian women wearing flowers on their hair so that people from other Cultures/Backgrounds can appreciate the explanation given.

Every morning, the women religiously put on the flower strands on their head after a bath. These flower strands definitely make the women look beautiful (For Indians atleast, I don’t know how the westerners feel about wearing flower on the hair).

Flowers are a symbol of love, good luck, happiness and prosperity.

In Indian household , a girl is supposed to wear flowers on her hair because it brings happiness to the family and prosperity to all the members.

Wearing flowers on the hair is the symbol that Goddess Lakshmi ( Goddess of Wealth ) is residing in the house and that wealth will never leave the house.

Jasmine ,Rose and Hibiscus are common ,jasmine being the favorite.

Please enrich me further if such things are seen in the western world and if it is so…what is the idea of wearing the flowers on hair, from westerners point of view ?

Thanks in advance for sharing your views.

Prof.Dr.Google,single most respected and revered personality,without whose advice and support we are non existence, could not give me the exact definition and meaning of the idiom or phrase…(whatever you call it), of “Bald truth”

But I noticed many writers using these two words.I request the English Teaching professors to enlighten us how it originated.

As a student in my school days,I remember it implies ‘frankness’.

Can we also think of an alternate.. ‘Ugly Truth’ ?

Huh ! Why Truth has to be ugly always?

I Request English Pundits to guide and help me.

Now coming to the less serious part….
