Beliefs and Superstitions

Beliefs about Death

Old persons having prolonged illness  are expected to get worse or die on the new moon day. The new moon day is called 'heavy day', since it takes a heavy toll of death. According to general belief, persons suffering from Paralytic attacks die exactly after three days, three months or three years after the first attack. Dream of a temple, car in motion or burglary, foretells the death of some  near relation. During certain periods  of the day known as Kulikai kalam in auspicious ceremonies like funeral or burial are not performed.
