Taboo is a prohibited activity that is not allowed, which is resistant to social approval, and behavioral norms do not allow. Full limitations or prohibitions tell or do something. It affects the social and cultural aspects of life. Manipur society is rich in taboos, so people are extremely civilized since it has since been. The preservation of culture and traditions as well.
All social and religious activities of society are based not only on supernatural beliefs and universal principles. He always follows the Code of Conduct for Ethics. They also deal with certain social limitations that presuppose some sort of socio-religious holiness. There is no control over the human soul and actions. Therefore, socio-religious restrictions should be given religiously. We are forced to believe that the supernatural power above us always looks at us, and those who break rules will be punished by supernatural beings. This system works in society as "Taboo".
Manipur has two types of taboos: cultural taboo (can not) and linguistic taboo (not to say). Meetei seeks out the most favorable form of society where the slight mistakes are removed to the extent possible by introducing or replacing words that, in their composition, contain a slanglike pronunciation. Taboo is not a curse but a blessing to the Meetei society. Without such restrictions and bans, society can be cannibalism, barbaric and insecure place. Social order, peace and harmony are directly or indirectly linked to social taboos among people. They also share the basics of morality, ethics and character building, which are indispensable for human civilization.
The Meets of their ancestors told what to do and what not to do. Gradually they become taboo. There are also cases where taboos come from fear. For example, marriage between the same Yek (clan) is not allowed and it is taboo. Because of the fear of a dominant or mighty king, a marriage alliance may be a threat to power. There were cases in which the Mee'ei kings created taboos for their own benefits. During the reign of Maharaj Chura Chand Singh, no woman could afford to take the back knot of her hair. They were not allowed to enjoy the shadow of the umbrella.
Meeteis views women as menstruating as innocent. During this period, women are considered intact. The physical intimacy or relationship of a male-female is strictly prohibited. On the fifth day of the season, women should have a clean bath by washing the head and then having a normal life. Women should also be banned for certain meals, especially those that are bitter and tasty. The social relationship with parents is a cultural taboo during childbirth. Society remains in twelve-day isolation, the entire clan observes Yum Mangba, which is regarded as an unpleasant day under which members of the family are unwilling to accept the gods of the gods (worship) and the Sagei (clan) except the sixth day after birth .
During the pregnancy of a husband's wife, he will not hunt or allow any violent act. You should not share with your wife in the advanced state of pregnancy. They believe that you do not see Hindu gods or goddesses like Jagathnath master or Kali goddess during pregnancy, because if they awaken, they deliver a deformed child. You must leave all types of twin or vegetables. If you eat these foods, they will believe that he will be a baby.
The same plate that belongs to any food between husband and wife is also a cultural taboo. If Phanek's wife or woman who is in contact with or using her except her mother is also a taboo. If so, it is considered a ravaged husband and an unlucky face to society. It's a bad wish for society.
People should not consume food, depending on their clan. An Angom clan must leave the Mairen Angou (white pumpkin) nutrition, the Mangang clan must be free from Ngaril (eel). If you take these, you may cause allergies, immune systems, or loss of teeth.
The Yuhar haba (earthquake) is a sign of the repentance of God for the indignation of mankind. During the earth's shake, men or women, old or young, say the word "chak-by" (Rice-fish), which means that everything except food (rice and fish) may die, indicating the basic necessity of man like food.
Potsem Jadoo is one of the black arts in Manipur. This is primarily based on common beliefs. A person who is willing to offend an enemy will bring out an effigy from the wax, adding some additional ingredients and mentioning mantras (males). Someone can accept another system. The enemy is under the magic of black art and can be easily guided. This is done through goblins, ghosts, or ghosts. Sometimes this system is accepted today (local doctors) for the treatment or cure of physical or mental illnesses. The Hingchabi changba (in which evil spirits are in possession) is also recovered in the process of lai khurumba (pujah), and has been trying to absorb evil spirits today.
Meetei can not abandon the old thing that anyone can even name as a superstition. Even today, during the Nong Kouba (rain invasion), it may cause heavy rain. The Nong Kouba Ceremony calls rain and comes in the rain for droughts or droughts. People sang a certain hymn in the rhythm.
In ancient times, if someone makes an oath in the name of Godhead, he can not leave it. Such unfulfilled swearing is regarded as washak namung (swearing). Meeteis is very afraid of the swearing-out effects.
After returning from a long journey, man has to fire and throw rice in front of him. It is forbidden to release the cut nail freely. Keep under the ground so that the nails can not be caught by the birds. Meetei believed that the bird owl had such an angle to Yumraj (Lord of Death) and that man could die.
People can show their sorrow by touching their brow with their hands after touching the other person he accidentally touched. Take the shoes off before going to another person's house. During out-of-home meals, certain meals have to be offered for a holiday that applies to the demigods around us.
Meeteis cut bamboo only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Likewise, hair and nail cutting are also not allowed on the three days of the week and on the day a person was born
"No Chatle" is missed on the mission or at work. Instead, "No Chatlukhige" is used. No Chatle means that heavenly dwelling (death) remains. At a time when a man is leaving his home for a journey, the pronunciation of "Houdong" (cat) is forbidden and badly spoken. Instead of using Yumleima (the family lady). Words such as Kei (tiger), taboo night. Wrongly, if people used it, they feared a tiger coming out of the jungle. That is why they use the term "Ibudhou" (grandfather) for tiger during the night.
Thus, the horizon of human language extends the effect of the taboo day by day. To search for words or phrases that indicate tabulated words, many new words can be found. The unpleasant slang words are replaced by new and beautiful words. Consequently, today they offer new words or phrases to the rich literary well-being of society.
