Tripunithura’s Thiruvathira, an exercise for women – Onam 2009 special
I always speak about IT age, yes the IT era where boys and girls sit 8-12 hours in front of a computer.Girls and boys are always busy thinking about figure and beauty, dieting mm… "we do not have time for exercises. : )
Always in front of a computer wont help you physically at the end of the day. People can see youths getting prone to diseases and mental tension.
I witnessed Thiruvathira in Cochin, a dance played by women since years. It was held at NSS Auditorium in Tripunithura, the land of royal kings and queens. Girls gathered before a lit lamp and started dancing awesome, matching the beats of the music.
Thiruvathira is celebrated on the asterism Thiruvathira in Dhanu, the fifth month of Malayalese calendar (Kolla Varsham). Thiruvathira was new to me and this is the first time I am watching this dance LIVE.
I think Onam has introduced a great exercise for women named Thiruvathira. “No exercise for men?”. But why to go for a one time exercise that happens once in a year, I think we can work in our home helping each other, walking once in a week rather that giving excuses, " I have no time for a gym so I am getting fat. I need to do dieting".
If girl and boys understand this, then they will soon lose their weight and gain a good posture. I think modern girls are interested in looking like skeletons, I think so; If not then why to eat less and suffer.
My sister was always ready for a dieting but never for exercise. Her friends have advised her to use a sauna belt to maintain figure. They say no need for an exercise, tie the belt and you have a well toned body. mm… again a Asian sky shop ad! :)
My grandmother is 70+ years and she is still active, has all black hairs, good eyesight, and yes of course good fitness. She works daily in her house; get up at 6 Am and sleeps by 9PM. everything in a disciplined manner.
It would appear that I am trying to harass men and women or comment on them. I am not at all interested in these activities. I am trying to let them see a better view and that dieting is not the right choice but exercise, to reduce fat and gain good fitness and posture.
There might be women and men who do all these but how many? Are you one among them? If then tell the youths to stop dieting and concentrate on exercise.
