Dear Sri Kunjuppu,
This tribal culture is continued in eastern countries out of fear. In this case, the fear of position compels the individuals to show their obedience.
No I don't Kunjuppu mama even if I wanted to . They will think I was "loosu" if i did any sort of kuninju vanakkams here! But it works for JJ so good for her
I would prefer to stick to the context of J and her ministers, if you don’t mind.
To the best of my knowledge, the tamil acknowledged form of greeting and respect is ‘vanakkam’. I do not recal’ a full fledged namaskaram performed towards a chief minister, in the times of rajaji, kamaraj, annadurai or even MK. Maybe those took place, and no one photographed it.
When I first saw the pix of grown men, older than she, prostate themselves fully, maybe some of them did angapradakshanam, and no one took a photo!!
The news report is that these kuninju vanakkams, were permitted by J in lieu of namaskarams, which is one reason, that I think, the angle of the dip, tilting closer and closer to the ground, as the minister’s centre of gravity would permit, without tilting altogether to transform to a namaskaram. That is my take on it.
Once again, I think, these signs of ‘respect’ are endowments to J the person & CM maybe, but definitely not the CM. otherwise, MK would have made sure, that he got such a show of ‘respect’ too,
I am surprised at this repeated humiliation of the males, (don’t see the female ministers doing these vanakkams in such abject a pose), makes me wonder, if J harbours a deep dislike of the male gender?
Absolute namaskarams, I would say have their uses. Recently an iyengar friend of mine’s boy 25, was wooing a marathi girl, nyc.within two weeks after meeting her, he decided to marry her, and went straight to the father’s house, for the first time, and even before shaking hands, did a full namaskaram, at the man’s feet. The prospective fil was so pleased, that he granted ‘permission’ for the young lad to marry the lass, which was celebrated very soon afterwards. Now, that is what I would call, a strategic use of namaskaram, to decide a situation in one’s favour.
Not middle aged men, donning viboothi and pottu, displaying servitude in front of a rather obdurate looking middle aged spinster, who appear to enjoy wielding the stick of power and control.
Ps. I wonder how these men’s wives feel at the sight of their hubbies making fools of themselves!!
exactly amala. anything to please the boss! do you know why these are called brown nosers in english language usage?
Why 'Amen' when there is 'Dhasaasthu'.
