Beliefs and Superstitions

Beliefs about Pregnant Women

It is believed that a pregnant  woman should not be photographed. A  pregnant  woman's requests  for edibles and  consumer  articles  generally acceded to since it is though that refusal  may lead  to ear-diseases for the child in the womb.

Therai ( toad)  falling on a pregnant woman may  be the cause of some diseases  to the off-spring. Between  conception  and delivery, a woman should not do any tailoring work. A woman bitten by a scorpion during pregnancy immunises the future child  to scorpion-bites. A nest being built inside a house by a bird or wasp assures safe delivery.
