Each time she moved and swayed she made her presence felt. Now when I don’t get to hear that sweet metallic tinkle from the dozen bangles in her hand I feel the absence of my grandma. It would irk to hear her shout “Girls don’t have empty hands, you need to wear a bangle”.It sounded like an old school thought and I wondered from where did this come from! Indian traditions and the grandparent’s folk lore truly amaze. Well, it was foolish for us to think of them as illogical while they were the ones scientifically proven.
I was zapped to explore and realise the factual reasons behind these traditions. Like the Mangalsutra which although is a beautiful piece of jewellery but has a heavy soulful connection of binding a couple. Well, science says that the black beads have the repellent properties that can ward off any evil casts on the newlyweds. So logically freed from negative vibes obviously leads to a blissful wedded life. Who would know that wearing a small piece of jewellery could prove so beneficial?
Similarly, my Grandma who although did not educate me the logic but gave me inquisitive reasoning which was a shocking revelation. The friction caused by adorning bangles on the wrist eases the circulation of blood and thus regulates the pressure. Furthermore, enables mental well-being by keeping impatience in control. Isn’t that mind-blowing? No wonder my grandma was always so cool!
Well knowingly or unknowingly be it for traditional, logical or fashionable reasons women and their interest for jewellery is scientifically still a puzzle. Right from birth, she as a girl, she as a poised lady, she as a respectable woman adorns the shining metal of gold in various facets in vivid art forms.
Irrespective of any other accessories, married or not married, women adorn the bangles. Sometimes it’s just a single smart design or paired or the attention seeking dozen. Gold bangles are part of every closet forming a choice of daily wear. Ornamentation although is for special occasions but this doesn’t limit for the bangles.
