hai ladies,
how r u all?

After reading the thread on tamil culture in debate sec, I had a thought about following our tamil tradition outside india. bcoz I see lot of people living outside india say either U.S, canada or euope cudnt follow their way of dressing same as india. may be thats true, for ladies
they can't wear saree daily in this cold climate. but other than that............
say,
some ques to women living in U.S, Europe,canada and other countries other than india

1) do u keep bindhi (pottu) at ur house and when u go out.
2) do u wear our traditional dress like chudi and sarees atleast on festive days.
3) do u light up diya daily in the morning
and etc, etc..

may be for girls who are born and brought here are diff. and they don't even know about this.

but how about ladies come here either for work, studies or after marriage?

I dont mean the discussion in debating way, jus pour out ur ideas and experience thats all i want.

lasik regarding these question I can answer on behalf of my wife I think she is asusual busy (nanthan vetti payan)

she always keeps bindhi :)

Yes she wears only traditional cloths on fest days and for temples :)

Yes she lights up daily :)

I think ethulam namma udamboda pinni pinanchathu so maathurathu romba kastam and I also do not see why we have to change. ofcourse we can not wear saree all the time in this temp and its also teoo difiicult; otherthan that if it can be followed here too why we should not follow. :) may be ladies can pour in more thoughts on this

nothing that you should feel bad about micky. The other day when we were chatting, I thought you have completely transitioned to culture over here (not the American one but the Desi-American one). Thats why I was little surprised. Especially the Gayathri Mantram and Kantha Shashti Kavasam.

Good question...

Lotsa stuf has to be changed when you leave your home country.

Yes I try to keep bindhis all the time. But on some occasions like in meeting the client, I try to keep small black one, so that it doesnt look odd with my business wear....

Traditional dress yes, temples, occasions and festivals potupen, summerla mostly outing porache i wear it.

diyas yes try to do it every other day... evening seekarum vantha seiven...

As sakthi said.. its in our blood, may be 1 hour ennala poojai seiya mudiyaama irukalaam.. but we try to do whatever we can... so follow pana mudiyaama irukaathu.. slight changes ooda still u could do it..

sakthiye pathi sollitaru....to add up to tht..i will keep bindi bt its not like indian one....i tried to put some designs with eye liner as bindi thts it....and on going to temples or festival i will have kumkum... i will wear salwar or saree for a festival or temple..but to work some times i use mis and match like a wear a jeans and i have a salwar top like that....pooja....mostly whenever i have time i do...bt most of all everything is in our mind and in our heart...it is not a rule tht we have to follow or why shdnt be follwed it all depends on the indiv

MSB thats 100% true. i agree. :b:

I usually keep bindhi but not a big one jus a small one which suits to my dress. initially my collegues(white people) used to ask me about this and i used to explain them the importance of bindhi.
but the sad thing is some of my indian collegues, they used to tease me initially for this.
but i gave a big lecture. then they accepted and stopped teasing me. i felt really bad. i didnt force them to keep bindhi but atlest they shudnt tease.
actually, I feel something missing in my face if i dont have bindhi.

shy thats good. :b: :b: I too do the same. but diyas i light up both morning and evening and meditate for sometime. i dont know any pooja or mantras but sitting before god gives me peaceful mind for that day.

01-31-2006, 02:19 AM
yeah true, :yes:
as sakthi said, its all depends on individual. some may like to do pooja or some may do bhajans.

there are different ways to approach god, for me, i feel meditation is the best way.

I differ a bit, mostly I've seen these traditions being followed in family setup like staying with parents or married people. Its not just with girls, its with guys too. As bachelors or bachelorettes I haven't found many that way. I dont mean to say its wrong or we'd have to strictly follow the traditions, but it simply does'nt happen that way (atleast ones I've seen).

Very true. Indians are our worst enemies. I sometimes wear vibhuthi or naamam to work (and I used to wear it almost everyday at uni), and while the non-desi fellas were understandably curious, a few Indian people - initially, at least - had the audacity to come up to me and ask me why I'm trying to "force" my beliefs on the outside world. I sure showed them, but that's not the point. Indians often seem embarrassed at their kind. It's pretty sad to see that foreigners seem to be more accepting than our own people!

But to each his own.

sri_gan
01-31-2006, 04:25 PM
Coolian,

True what you are saying, usually I'm of nature if i decided to do I will do and least bother about what others say and especially fellow indians who has no clue of why we do such sort.

If some one comes to me and asks me why am I trying to force others, I think he is going to have a bad day with me and he will never forget that instance forever.

But I had some instances a when I have kugumam in my nethi (forehead thane) some of foreigners will look at it and asked me more than once is it blood *with a serious look*? usually the kugumam from Madurai temple is closer to the color of blood, I realized that later and stopped wearing that since then, but never neglected to do so when I go to temples or in weekends.

Daily pattai potturuven :D.

So finally it depends on the individual.

priyam, keeping bindhi is not a tamil culture or tradition or something like that.
every religion has its own tradition. sorry for bringing this topic in common(shud change the topic) .
bcoz christians or muslims dont keep bindhi. they've diff beliefs.
but here i'm talking about hinduism. most of the hindus are brought up this way like what i asked in ques.
now, I dont mean to say like u've to keep bindhi and light diyas and other stuffs but
the point is say, I am brought up in a family where these things are more important and i've followed these from my childhood. so ques is here in US, being diff culture, for these white people, our tradition looks to be odd. so what some of our people do is in order to mingle with these white ppl well or to show off like they r also westernised, they ignore our main tradition what they were following for years.
thats where the problem comes. why do u want to change urself for ppl who dont know the importance of these things and why cant u follow these as u did in ur native place.
This is what i wanted to ask. I didnt say like u r a true indian or tamil ponnu only if u keep bindhi or light diyas.

Hi people, I find this discussion very interesting.
“Following the Indian tradition outside India.”

Well first of all I'm a Malaysian Indian but brought up in Papua New Guinea and Australia. Being in these two countries, we have always been brought up by praying (to whomever we believe), celebrating the festivals, wearing our traditional costumes and yes we wear pottus ( bhindis). There are many Indians in Papua New Guinea who wear the traditional salwar kamiz but not many of the sari's. That I totally understand as the climate is just too hot. Same for Australia.

However this was about 10 years or so ago. Now being in Australia, we hardly wear salwar kamiz....let alone a sari. Simple reason, the climate. But we still find the time....for example, on my graduation day, amma wore a sari and I had a kurti...same for my sister. Or even when going out for dinners, we wear a salwar kamiz with bhindi.
Being in a different country and not being exactly exposed to what every Indian is in their home country, this is the only way of showing we still are valuing our culture and traditions. I’m not saying that by wearing our costumes, we are traditional and follow all customs. People who don’t wear their tradition costumes can also be following the tradition. But one should not be embarrassed. We still pray at home, still listen to Indian music (my dad’s radio singing “Palani appa” song, now that’s hmmmmm), Indian movies....trying to get to know Indian families here.

All in all….we are trying our best but…why are Indians from Malaysia/India/Singapore/or others who come overseas to study, change in a sec. They act, with full on accents and their dressing styles. The pretend to not know their culture. An example…..not knowing your mother tongue. Seriously if an Indian is born and brought up in Malaysia, they should know how to speak Tamil at the least, however they claim to have no idea about Tamil. This sickens me. If I can speak Tamil after just spending 4 years of my life in Malaysia, then why can’t a person who has spent 20 years unable to speak their own mother tongue
Any views on this?

Could someone explain me this...

Just a doubt,nithi you mean to say that ppl in india ( everyone ) knew very well their mother tongue?????There are lot many ppl who can speak their mother tongue,but dont know to write/read or know much of mahabaratham....still arent they sticking to culture?
When in india itself you find lot,how can you expect an ABCD/NRI'kids to know everything in detail?

Hi Micky, Im not exactly sure if i understand your doubt, but here goes my best understanding of it.

Any indian should be able to speak their mother tongue. You don't have to read or write or even know the mahabaratham. I see alot of my friends who are brought up overseas being able to speak the mother tongue...yet when i meet fellow Malaysias as an example, they pretend to not know. Having experience this, im just letting you know. Im not expecting anyone who is born and brought up in a country (malaysia, India, etc... where the language is emphasized to know how to read or write, but at least speak the language. A good example : South Africans. I have met a few and most of them speak their mother tongue.

Hope that clears your doubt.
