Indian Superstitious that really have scientific reasons behind them.
One may believe that he had a bad day if a cat crosses his path while stepping out of the house for a good work or If one had stepped out while the solar eclipse is underway.
While most superstitious are deemed to be weird and absurd but some of them do have some scientific reasons behind them. Just have a look.
#Use of Lemon and Chillies strung on the thread will ward off evil over you.
It is most common totka among Indian society. In reality, this usage derives its reason that the cotton thread passing through Lemon and Chillies sucks up the acid, Vitamin C and other nutrients that diminishes the acidic nature from the surroundings.
The thread afterward discharges these acidic nutrients into the surroundings through slow vaporization that have vital health paybacks and also acts as natural pesticides.
#People usually throw coins in fountains and rivers assuming that doing so would bring them good luck.
In ancient times the currency was made of copper and by throwing these copper coins into the rivers ensured our forefathers that they are consuming pure water.
Logic Behind This
Science has established that copper has antimicrobial capacities and it kills 99.9 percentage of infectious bacteria. But today we neither use copper coins nor we drink water from rivers as rivers are either polluted or dried.
#We do not step out or eat during an eclipse so as to keep negative energies at bay.
As sun emits Ultraviolet rays all throughout the day, it is just during an eclipse more of UV radiation reach us. While our ancestors had no access to sunglasses so it was established the belief that they ought to avoid looking at the sun or going out in the sun.
With all knowledge and technology in our hand. It is nonsense to not view such a rare and beautiful natural phenomenon.
#Lizard falling on an individual will bring misfortune to him.
Lizards found in our Homes release toxic poisonous substances from their body in order to ward off their enemies.
If a lizard contacts anyone’s body or falls in eatable food items then it would contaminate the food and would cause the disease to whosoever who eat it.
Indian Superstitions with their Scientific reasons behind them,
#Sweeping House after sunset cause misery and poverty.
In olden days when there was no access to electricity, and light from lamps was not enough to spot small gold ornaments while sweeping.
Our ancestors believed that sweeping in dark would sweep away our valuables with dust were high.
#A sweet dose of curd and sugar before going out turns out to be lucky.
Though it had been a ritual since ages, yet has nothing to do with good luck.
Sugar mixed with curd provides cooling effect whereas sugar provides the instant glucose for energy.
#Chewing Tulsi disrespects Goddess Lakshmi.
In olden days people used to believe that swallowing Tulsi leaves or chewing Tulsi or basil would disrespect Goddess Lakshmi and would bring poverty.
Tulsi leaves contain arsenic acid that would degrade our tooth enamel.
