Hi, i agree with you that the ornaments have reasons. Our great great great grannies forgot / ignored to pass the message to the younger generation. Even our elderly people dont know the actual reason. 1. Metti - nerves connected to uterus. "Ever wondered how our great grannies and grannies gave birth t 9-10 children even and we feel difficult to give birth more than 2 kids". Even nowadays, it is not difficult to give birth. We want to provide everything the child needs. Working mother need to go through stress and it prevents them to give birth to more than two. In Malaysia, even Malay / chinese grannies gave birth to more than 10 kids. It is the food they take in older days and they were not under much pressure compared to working mothers today. Metti does make the uterus stronger. But apart from metti, there are more important thing, which is FOOD to make onself healthy. 2. Sindoor / bindhi - saves energy released from the middle of forehead. For some readon this energy is important to us. Even men are advised to apply chandanam. Chandanam gives calming effect. Sindoor makes a person stronger (hot tempered). Women need to be strong to bring up the family. By nature women are considered soft. Nowadays, women are more hot tempered than men. Applying sindoor will make them worst. 3. Thali - the gold in thread in between breast increases sexual pleasure to satisfy the husband. Of course a man dont need a thali. The chilled feeling of the gold in thread increases the need to be with the husband. 4. Ring - nerves from the heart in connected to the ring finger. Gives constant heart beat. Know yourself before applying them. Decide if you really need it these days. If you are soft person, apply sindoor. If you think you need thali, wear it. AIf you feel you dont need it, just put things aside and go ahead. Food is most important. You can control your desires with food, control your energy with food, control your heart beat with exercise, have healthy uterus with healthy food.
