Why we are not giving respect to our traditions but foreigners do?We are hearing daily through televisio/radio, reading in newspapers that objections for wearing traditional dress in temples and public places. Lawyers are intending to wear color dress, students refuse to wear uniforms etc.,
When we go to the the temple cities like Madurai, Rameswaram, Guruvayur, Trichirapalli, srirangam etc., we can see many foreign tourists wearing dhotis and saris. Even they are wearing tilaks and flowers but we people hesitate to do so, Why?
They are eating in our hotels with their hands instead of spoons and forks but we need spoon even for dosa and chapati/parota.
Recently, Mr.Mathew Heiden, Australia Cricketer, visited Madurai Meenakshi Temple with Dhothi only. But many of us, Indians, found arguing at the entrance of the temples on the dress issue.
When we correct ourselves and honour our tradition?
