    Do Hindu Married Women need to wear Thali only made of Turmeric Saradu ?

    (மஞ்சள் கயிறு)

    With changing times and varying needs of Hindu working women, especially in the metropolis, who are no longer stay-home wives, the concept of wearing a mangalsutra has changed visibly; Rarely does a Hindu working woman don a mangalsutra over her office Dress;

    Most working Hindu women do prefer Gold Chain instead of Turmeric Thread, because Turmeric Thread gets worn out from time to time; ( also the color of the Thread does not match with their Dress!!) I see nowadays only old orthodox married Hindu women Hindus still wearing Thali using Mangalya Saradu, (Turmeric Thread)

    I think the thali itself is a symbol of male chauvinism. Why is a thali necessary at all? All tribal customs and practices can be done away with.

    Please note that I have not criticized the mantra.

    OP is not about doing away with Thali,Majority of Hindus would not accept.

    OP is about changing Mangalaya Saradu with Gold Chain or any other Chain, whether this practice is acceptable?

    From what I have heard from elders, it is not advisable to change the saradu with gold or any other. Hence the practice is not acceptable.

    Of course, when the saradu can be done away with, what could possibly prevent the modern woman from doing away with the chain also, at some point in their thinking. :-)

    Acceptable to whole Hindu Married women Community

    Let the doubt raiser ask his wife to remove Thali, and see whether she accepts his proposal
