I have a great belief in Tamil Nadu Culture and Traditions. Ancient people in Tamil Nadu gave some useful tips to lead healthy life in the name of culture. If we see depth of Tamil Nadu culture, all are good health tips to everyone. There are plenty of reasons behind each and every traditions in tamil nadu. I would list out some of basic culture and traditions in tamil nadu.
There is a culture of putting Kolam infront of houses in Tamil Nadu, In early days, people put kolam in "Rice Flour", which is one kind of "Thanam" for insects. Every Friday people will put Turmeric lines at bottom of home entrance door, which protects our home from insects. (Insects will not come inside). Getting up early in morning and putting kolam is also good excercise to body.
Barathanatiam is orginated from Tamil Nadu, which shows our culture to all. This classical Dance has plenty of scientfic effects in this layam, posture and all.
Tamil Nadu's traditional food is Idly, Rice,sambar and Rasam. Idly has no high colustrol and Sambar made by dall, has high protien, and Rice has high carbohydrate and Rasam for dygistion. So In food culture also tamil nadu is the best. They follow good healthy life.
Be proud to be an Tamizhan.
