Have you ever wondered why we Keralites eat food by hand? But there are some secrets behind it.
There are many benefits to eating by hand in this way, both physically and mentally. According to the Vedas, human hands and feet are considered to be the five demons.
The thumb is considered to be the fire of the five demons. Haven’t you seen little babies put their hands and mouths in? Do you know what it is? Little babies can’t chew food. The little finger also indicates water.
Therefore, the Vedas say that when we eat with the fingers representing these five Panchabhutas, our body gets all the abilities of the Panchabhutas. Don’t forget that you are getting it. It is never against our culture or reform.
