We live in a country where there are several beliefs. For example: If a cat crosses your way, something worse is about to happen. Or if you swear on a lie, the person you swore on might get hurt. Some people call it ‘Superstition’ however some people choose to believe it. There is yet another belief that some people consider the fact. ‘Pregnant women should not watch falling off a tree.’ There are some superstitious beliefs attached to it too, but some reasons are logical like – precautions for pregnant women.
Precautions for Pregnant Women
In ancient days, the first reason for people to now allow pregnant women to watch a tree falling, Protection. Nobody knows in which direction a tree might fall. No wonder people can run fast and escape the threat. But it is quite difficult for a pregnant lady to run. WHO WOULD WANNA RISK THE LIFE OF A LADY AND HER UNBORN CHILD!? Like the old saying, PRECAUTION IS BETTER THAN THE CURE. I believe that it is a valid point. Besides, watching a tree falling is dangerous and unpredictable.
The Loud Noise Is Spine-Chilling
Have you ever watched the felling of a tree? If not, trust me, it is the most thundering sound you would ever hear. The loud noise might traumatize you. For pregnant women, it is not a sound decision to hear such an alarming noise. It might disturb her consciousness, as well as the health of her child.
Might Manifest Negative Thoughts and Feelings
As you all are aware that INDIANS WORSHIP NATURE. We accept that trees and plants are holy entities and would never cut them without any reason. You guys remember the CHIPKOO MOVEMENT, right? How people hugged and swore that they shall die if anyone touches and cuts the trees. Yes, Indians do have this much affection for MOTHER NATURE.
However, during cremation, trees are cut without any reason. Older people believe that a pregnant woman should not watch the felling of the tree at that time since she might manifest negative thoughts about society. And we want that pregnant women should be given all happiness and optimism.
A HEALTHY LADY, A HEALTHY BABY
Indian culture worships a pregnant lady. She is provided with the utmost peacefulness, happiness and positivity during her pregnancy. Any disrupting thought that might sadden her is kept aside. She is not allowed to see any animal-killing or tree-felling, even in the name of GOD.
Her physical and mental health should be upright and healthy. A happy and healthy mother is considered to conceive a happy and healthy child. Hence, if you see any pregnant lady watching any of the activities mentioned above, take her away from there.
AFTERALL A WOMEN IS NOTHING BUT THE MOST WONDERFUL CREATION OF GOD. TAKE GOOD CARE OF HER.
