Hi everyone. I want to share a story with you about taboo in our Malay community.Before
that,didi you know what is taboo?Well then,based on wikipedia, A taboo
is a vehement prohibition of an action based on the belief that such behavior
is either too sacred or too accursed for ordinary
individuals to undertake, under threat of supernatural punishment.In a
short term,taboo is prohibited,disallow
or forbidden.So,now you
have understand,right.Ok let’s proceed with my story.
If you still remember,too many
taboos that has been presented to us, especially when we were children. As a
child, I always wondered whether the prohibition is true or plot. Before
puberty at that time, I certainly will not be able to know the truth. But the
more I mature, I almost find the answer. But I am not sure whether the answer
is true or merely hypothetical.
Among the common taboo I have
heard are as follows:
“Do not point finger towards the
rainbow, the consequences of your finger will be crippled”. O Allah! I have
heard horror. If I noticed about the existence of the rainbow, I will soon hide
the finger into the pocket. But I think that the prohibition was made because
our ancestors worried because rainbow appears indicating drizzle. So if we
drabble rain, we’ll fever. Correct?It seems true,right?
There are also my grandmother
who say, “do not sit on the pillow, that’s infected boils around the anus”. It sounds
very strange. Since I was very stubborn, I have dared to experiment. Without
feeling guilty, I was sitting on a pillow several times to accept the alleged
curse. Cis! No boil grow at all! Farenova been duped again. But then I realize
now, use pillows to lay the head, not the anus. If we sit on the pillow, pillow
will result smelling anus. Correct?Hahaha,it is a very funny taboos.
There are also old people say,
“do not open an umbrella in the house, or the snake will enter the house”. About this
taboo is still confused and I am stuck to find the answer. Ah .. I do not know
what the rationale behind it. But I think there may be a sharp corner on the
umbrella in case of negligence which may puncture the eye. Don’t you agree?It
sounds logic in my mind.
Ok.There is also forbidden
taboo that it sounds very prank. It sounds like this, “girls who are not
married cannot sing in the kitchen, as feared would be delayed marriage”.
Perghhhhh … Very terrible and obsessive thought all girls,right? As a
precaution, many girls afraid to sing in the kitchen. They decided to sing in
the toilet, they bark with emotions and think of themselves is like Siti
Nurhaliza. I took a long time to find the answer. But on this day there may be
truth to the assumption that I have derived.From my opinion, when girls singing
in the kitchen, there is a possibility they will be splashed saliva into the
dish or food in the pot. It only just the puzzle. If you have a more accurate
answer, please share with me.But still,I
myself likes to sing while cooking in the kitchen.Hahaha.
Actually too much taboos and customs
that do not make sense can be found in the traditions of our society,but behind
the trickery in the forbidden taboo, there are many lessons we can learn from
it .Our ancestor’s education methods may differ, they do not like to tell
accurately about the consequences. They prefer intimidating so we do not make
mistakes. Effects and consequences will be explored slowly, in line with
increasing age. In conclusion, taboo and tradition in our society seems to
resemble the teachings of error, but actually implied a very valuable lesson.Ok
guys,I hope you will entertained with my entry.See you soon.Thank you for reading.
GUYS,SEE YOU SOON!!!~
