Our home, our domain. The one safe retreat for us when we are hurt, upset or threatened. Nothing can happen to us there.So imagine someone coming and telling that your haven can cause miseries, especially if you keep certain wrong things in the wrong direction? Yet that's what people are being told today, making them change everything they have so far been used to.
Because with the economical and cultural globalisation, the Chinese Feng Shui has entered also Indian homes. Suddenly everything that was previously done was pooh-poohed. Everything, right from the pictures in your house to your sleeping positions were changed. You had to have lights on every beam and in every hook, brass turtles on your floors and your favourite idol of Goddess Lakshmi got replaced by toads! The ancestral houses were no longer 'good' for the inhabitants. The direction of everyone's entry into the house was changed. People started investing in fortune and laughing buddhas.
