On a journey to India today I will show you the laws and strange things that even in the imagination of humanity have never been thought of before number 15 banon alcohol advertising this is perhaps one of the longest standing prohibitions on this list ninia advertising alcoholic beverages has been illegal since the

Late 1990s in fact many states across the country such as Gujarat nagaland Manipur and misam have gone a step further and strictly prohibit the consumption of alcohol together but alcohol companies have found alternative solutions to convey their brand to Consumers one such example is surrogate advertising where liquor companies

Promote their brands by advertising various brand extensions like mineral water soda CDs Airlines and even a cricket team it is said that India is a significant market for whiskey in the world and Lial companies cleverly circumvent the ban by finding loopholes in the law to advertise their brands in

Fact among the list today this is the most practical prohibition but it is not effective when Indian men can be considered true alcohol enthusiasts number 14 Ben on dancing in bars I don’t know if they have perception issues or not but bars are clearly created for rry and partying yet

People in India are banned from dancing there initially this ban applied to female dancers in bars if you are a woman and caught dancing in a dance bar in India you could be finded a minimum of $10,000 and could ultimately face 3 years in prison it is believe that these

Bars are seen as establishments with deviant interests therefore to curbit the government passed a law revoking licenses of all dance bars as days go by the measures of Indian authorities become more stringent and Indian police even arrest all girls dancing in bars whether they are dancers or just guests

Out to have fun one truly insane and conflicting aspect of this band is it India considers the profession of prostitution legal so why ban female ancers in bars who are often much more graceful than sex workers number 13 B on parties with foreigners dance lingery and now parties

This list couldn’t get any sadder than this the Kent ataka State government in India recently banned party organizers from inviting foreigners to events unless approved by the government the reason for this is the increasing number of crimes against foreign citizens in India this has become a serious concern

And thus the government decided to prohibit their participation in Social Gatherings without prior permission even if you can invite Reanna Bieber or one direction to your party but you will have to provide details of all the foreign guests to the police beforehand and allow the authorities to film them

The entire time they are at your event it sounds strange and there have been many proposals to lift this ban but the government seems to enjoy killing the joy number 12 ban on Foy grass say French Foy grass is one of the most delicious and expensive dishes in the

World but for the people of India it is abhorrent they have removed this delicacy from their menus and officially become the first country in the world to ban the import of FO gret this ban was declared after an animal rights group from London protested that the methods

Used to produce this delicacy from Goose liver are cruel they also argued that they wanted the ban cuz large restaurants were promoting the use of Foy grass as a peculiar thing throughout the country a preference that could be a crime in reality some countries like Israel Germany the UK and the state of

California have banned the production of foyer grass but India is the first country to cease its import number 11 taboo on menstruation while all developed countries in the world educate children about gender openly from an early age in the second most populous country in the world this issue is often overlooked the menstrual

Experience it for the first time and many girls drop out of school because of but additionally another report by the non-governmental organization Dusty published in 2019 pointed out that 23 million girls drop out of school annually due to the lack of proper menstrual hygiene tools and Facilities including sanitary pads and information

About menstruation Public Health experts and non-governmental organizations working in this field also highlight the lack of basic services such as access to sanitation and clean water as well as societal prejudices harassment and Taboo in addition to the mental and psychological stress a significant challenge in the menstrual hygiene issue

Is that many people lack access to essential products for many menstruation and how to deal with it are still obscured by cultural and social tabos and restrictions leading to adolescent girls being unaware of scientific facts and health hygiene practices sometimes causing health issues this culture of Silence creates a sense of Shame about

Menstruation within families and communities number 10 men holding hands if one day you happen to see two men holding hands you might think they’re a gay couple but if you ever set foot in India this is entirely nor anywhere in India we can witness moments of handholding between

Men asking some men about why they hold hands in public they seem to be puzzled by the question it’s understandable because from birth Indian men have had this Habit in Indian culture holding hands signifies intimate friendship between brothers or friends this closeness is not limited to men women do

The same Indian women walking together might hold hands interlace their fingers simply expressing cat in certain situations like religious ceremonies festivals or significant events holding hands also signifies unity and Community Spirit In general the act of men holding hands in India represents friendly affection rather than romantic love so

Don’t be surprised to see many same gender couples in India it’s the opposite of what you might think I’ll explain this more clearly to you shortly number nine prohibition of beef India is one of the country with the highest population of cows in the world but it’s quite unbelievable that beef is

Entirely banned here in 2015 the government of the state of Maharashtra indan year second largest estate imposed a ban on the sale and possession of beef with penalties ranging up to 10,000 rupees and a maximum of 5 years in prison for those convicted Z pain sparked widespread opposition on social

Media especially from meets enthusiasts and suppliers across the state but despite their efforts they failed to dissuade the government from enacting the law the ban was indeed implemented to aign with religious sentiments across the country it’s important to know that cows are considered sacred animals in India especially within the Hindu

Community followers of jism worship cows and those following Hinduism regard the cow as a sacred being they do not consume beef the beauty of a young girl’s eyes is even likened to the eyes of a female cow from ancient times the people in this region have considered a

Cow as their ancestor indis consider the cow as a sacred animal but not the Buffalo while many countries view beef as a primary food source in India it is the opposite and no one dares to eat it consuming beef is considered sacrilegious only waste products such as

Cow urine and dung are used for medicinal purposes from treating skin diseases to cancer other factors contributing to the sanctity of cows include references in the vadas where killing cows is prohibited when Muslims and Mongols invaded the symbol of protecting cows was used to emphasize Unity between indigenous religions

Number eight ban on mannequins wearing bikinis believe it or not this is indeed a ban currently being enforced in India the government has voted to prohibit the display of manquin wearing by kindness in shop windows in a move they believe will reduce cases of sexual harassment and recent incidents of attacks based on

Lustful motives across the country officials argue that mannequins wearing revealing laundry and seductive stockings are shameful for girls and have polluted the minds of men throughout the city going against societal morals this B was passed in lie of the indent representation of women prohibition act 1986 which relates to

Portraying the figure of a woman or any of her body parts in an indecent corrupt or injurious manner to public morality this B immediately faced strong opposition from most of the Indian population ironically these mannequins are not as provocative as the sensual sculptures and carvings in famous temples like kajiro where scenes of

Group sexual activities are displayed female customers had varying opinions some welcomed the ban believing it would reduce sexual attacks on women others opposed the ban considering it foolish and backward if you visit India you may need to enter a store to know it sells lundry because there won’t be any signs

Many ancient and sacred temples anyone visiting these places wants to explore them but to enter dressing modestly is an absolute requirement in fact in some places women are required to wear Muslim clothing to pass through the gate additionally everyone regardless of gender must remove their shoes when

Entering the inner sanctum it’s not an official government ban but it’s an Unwritten rule in Indian Society follow it to ensure your safety especially if you’re a woman number six Red Dot on the forehead with many of us may have wondered why in movies or any images of Indian people we

Always see a red dot on the forehead of women is it for beautification or does it hold some ritualistic significance in reality this red dot has significant meaning for women in this country Indians believe that placing a DOT between the eyebrows signifies joy and good luck therefore they call these dots

Bindy meaning small dot or drop of water in Hindi Indian women apply a red dot or gemstone here to become wiser more enlightened and to ward off demons some also believe that the Red Dot of the Bindy is like the third eye of Indian women the red color of the Bindy

Symbolizes honor love and prosperity in the southern part of India married women traditionally wear the Bindy to show that they are settled in married life the size of the dot between the two eyes also signifies the status of Indian women in India only married women are

To learn them if you plan to visit a single wrong gesture might cost you dearly let’s start with a left hand when the cultural beliefs of the Indian people the left hand is considered unclean and often used for activities like removing shoes or cleaning feet therefore a strict Prohibition in India

Is to never use the left hand when giving or receiving something something from a local this is deemed impolite and uncivilized if invited to someone’s home in India it’s crucial to remember to remove your shoes outside the door before entering always keep your feet clean and avoid using them to step on

Any objects inside the house if you accidentally violate this rule touch the object with your hand and then bring your hand close to your eyes to signify an apology another social etiquette you should know when in India is to avoid pointing at people or anything with your fingers pointing is considered rude and

Polite and will immediately draw attention if you violate this Norm number four prohibition of LGBT if you belong to the LGBT kid commumity be prepared for the possibility of being attacked or having food thrown at you when you set foot in this country even entering here might be impossible as the

Witnessed across the country after the ban was reintroduced number three eating with hands I’ll show you a video clip of an Indian meal that may seem unhygienic as they use their hands to mix everything and scoop it into their mouths don’t they know how to use chopsticks spoons

Or other utensils why do you eat in such a messy way in reality the practice of eating with hands in India is related to a Yer a historical system of medicine originating in Ancient India according to iova eating with hands is beneficial for health because your body will

Perceive the temperature of the food when you use your hands to scoop the food you can feel whether it’s too hot too cold or at the right temperature to put into your mouth the brain also sends signals to the stomach to prepare for digestion the nerve endings at the

Fingertips help convey information to the brain that you are about to eat the brain then sends signals to the stomach to release digestive fluids and enzymes aiding in effective digestion according to a AA eating with hands not only fills the stomach but also nurtures the spirit of everyone when you touch the food

Directly with your hands you create a physical and spiritual connection with a dish additionally Indian folklore believes that the five fingers represent the five elements forming the universe space air fire water and Earth Indians believe that if these five elements are combined when you eat it will make the

Publicly is illegal to be honest any form of public display of affection is considered a crime section 294 of the Indian penal codes strictly prohibits and imposes penalties for obscenity in public places while crimes against women such as rape and domestic violence still require stricter laws expressing love
