Why is there a proverb, ‘Ap Ruchi Khana, Par Ruchi Pehana’

Why there is a proverb, ‘Ap Ruchi Khana, Par Ruchi Pehnana’, which means that if you eat as you like, you will dress as you like others. It is said that when Lakshmi came out during the churning of the ocean, she gave her daughter to Narayan, who was dressed in pitavasan, instead of looking at her father, the cupbearer Shiva. So we select clothes that match our color and shape according to the season, festival and function.

Man is the only creature who feels ashamed and wears clothes to cover his shame. Starting from the bag, clothing is now so versatile that it can be worn overnight. So we humans take care to look good. That’s why our clothes help us a lot. Who doesn’t like to be complimented by being well dressed and looking good!

In our society there is a rule of dressing for every function. Just like the clothes for the police, the clothes change after becoming a doctor.

In most temples in South India and many elite clubs in the country, you are not allowed to enter if you are not dressed appropriately. If we look at the reason for such existence, it is meant to maintain order and unity.

And we emphasize not only the type of dress but also the color of the dress. On Thursday Manvasa day, Sadhva women also wear white clothes. Don’t we think of our bowties on Thursdays dressed in white sarees, red crimson hair, swirling in the smoke of incense and juna preparing cakes? Also, a new bride wears a red saree. Even the new daughter-in-law is forbidden to wear black for a year after marriage. Saints wear yellow clothes. Because different colors have different effects on our mind.

Therefore, business organizations pay great attention to the dress and behavior of their employees. As the saying goes, ‘Beggars see beggars.’ That’s why the beggars who earn good money, even though they walk around in good clothes, go to beg, wearing rags and smearing mud on their faces. And the company’s salesmen go out to sell his company’s products even though they are hungry, wearing suit boots with a hearty smile on their faces.

TV taught us that the less clothes, the more modern. Mobile came and he added fuel to the fire and said, “You are more popular than you are. It is different for a saint who has no knowledge of the body; But after our child, we have the option to become an overnight star. Jagannath lovers must admit that this kid, who wears ugly clothes and takes a selfie in front of the temple and leaves it in the media, needs a break. Influenced by pub culture, it is imperative that our children know the difference between a pub and an inner heaven.

In schools and colleges, first priority is given to the dress of the child, if you are not properly dressed, you cannot enter the school hall. Are our temples less polite than schools? However, a few days ago, when people criticized an actress for wearing indecent clothes, she replied that there is nothing more vulgar than a saree, and everything on the body is exposed.
