    dear varloo,
    it is nice to see you here, and this is a traditional topic so i am not surprised about ur presence here, when i got priya the diamond muthunthalukku giri goes mad over her the minute she wears it, it is not the mukkuthi but the base, u need to have an impertinent nose i call it to have it decorated to dazzle the smile, some have it so perfect and a mookkuthi also helps to hide the not so good looking nose that some have, my mother shanthi a bengali wore on both her nose which looked more like nepalese other wise but with the large nose ring which she inherited from her mother in law and she was dark in color the dazzle added to her entire get up, she never walked anywhere without the appropriate dress and accessories and even now when i imagine her it is never without her nose ring, some people have the grt nose for it..keeping in locker is a waste better to exchange the right one...about ur problem is, he must had pierced a nerve, which happens sometime...sunkan

    dear shanthi,
    i feel so sorry for you ma, you are right my second one chitra does not want to have anything to do with nose ring, never force anyone, it is just that in the olden days i remember my mom telling about how my grand mother came decorated from head to foot, from gold nagar raakkudi with rubies hanging from the mouth of the pancha headed snake, and then all her long hair decorated with golden florets, to her ankle with so many varieties of anklets and her hands were with many different types of bangles that was a must in those days, and vanki for her upper arm, and of course the chains with double chain and odiyanum which is the waist belt etc and of course the great mookkutthi on both sides...but poverty strikes who are too well off when in mothers place and she had to pledge all to educate her children, she herself a very intelligent personality i have seen her discussing politics so well, she never shaved her head as per the ritual because she felt she does not have to shave to save herself from being attractive and has a mind of her own...now this independant personality also had a wonderful besthri and muthunthalukku with bullaakku..sunkan

    dear srini,
    the girl who decides to decorate herself will not mind the pain as long as she can have a nice nose ring...so get it done, it is our tradition but never force any if they dont want...sunkan

    dear AC,
    many here are more professionals the guns work very fast along with the gold earring so it is just a shot like injection and the children have to bear but other wise not the kind of olden days where u use needles and so many other equipments like my mom used the lemon thorn..my god i am amazed at her craziness..sunkan

    hello akka

    mookanaang kayiru pottacha...enru mookuthiyay mama oruvar kindaladippathum undu?

    my father went about searching a groom.. he said he works with a nationalised bank. their demands... the daughter in law wear a diamond nose ring(the earings already taken into account..!)and a fiver as dowry.

    now my demands said absolutely no dowry and they will have nothing to do with my piercing MY nose...so out went the alliance.

    my dh family everyone wears a nose ring one stone diamond. my mil wore two just like my mom. and they kept telling me it will be so nice if i joined them...no forcing...but.......... i decided quite late..four years after my second son was born...and also said if i wear a nose ring it will be in diamond... so a diamond sridevi mookuthi from dh...the piercing was not all that troublesome as i got it done with the `shot' at a jewellery shop in bangalore...so joined the gang
    of mookankayaru pottacha in my family...ahaha

    Re: Ettukkallu Besthri Potta Eduppa Irukkum Mookku..

    Dear Sunkan,
    Very interesting Topic and the title was catchy too...I belong to the Nose pierced and removed gang. When my engagement was fixed , that was on Feb 2006, my mother, maternal &paternal grand mom's and all my relatives insisted that i should have my nose pierced before getting married.Our family is a very orthodox one.So, they all threatned me by saying" mukku kuthikama thali erakudathu".. blah blah..

    So i had no choice, my mom and dad took me to GRT, on one condition that i will select the tinest one.They allowed me to select a tiny "pushparagam" nose ring (didnt get a diamond one, coz. for my in laws family- diamond is not rasi).Went to the acharis place near GRT and got my nose pierced.Alas.... what a sheer pain....I got fever that night, so had to gobble up paracetemol tablet along with my night milk.
    After my engagement was over, my would be hubby called my house and told straight to me that the nose ring did not suit me at all. I conveyed the same to all my family members, took it as an advantage and removed it saying that..."enga athukararukke pudikala, apram naan yaaru kaga mukkuthi potukanum"..
    My mom had no words....heee heee
    For my wedding: i duplicated nose ring with Kallupottu...non knew it :) :)
    Thanks sunkan, you kindled my memories!!
