It is correct to comment or mock the old practices when we get modern ones
Why are old equipment and ways of working ridiculed today? Should we not understand that in some ways the old products and methods continue to be beneficial? That is the focus of this discussion.
I have seen many people talk mockingly about the old systems which actually they too followed earlier before switching to a modern one.
For example, people criticizing others when they see them grinding masala or Idli flour in stone grinders instaed of using mixie or grinders. But they do not know the masala is better when grinding in a stone grinder rather than in an electric mixie or grinder.
Once my brother started to take his diabetic pills by breaking one tablet into two pieces with a knife. By seeing this a guest who came on that day told with a ridiculous laugh, 'A tablet cutter has come for this, why don't you use it? I am using one which my son bought for me from the US.'
Similarly, many people ridicule sitting on the ground, eating with hands etc. We should never forget our old practices though we possess modern ones now.
