Why Indian men tie a thread around their waists?
1. A thread on the waist
We often see every Hindu male in India ties a black thread or red thread around their waists. This is called Kati Sootram of Molathadu. Even girls are tied with a thread either red or black up to certain age. This is an ancient custom that has been followed from ages and ages. There lies science in every Hindu custom. Even a small act can explain a lot, logically and scientifically. Many of today’s modern world consider that it is a superstition. Western science is always awestruck by the facts of Hindu customs and their simple to follow yet complicated medical systems.
