Black?

If black is meant to ward away evil spirits, then why can't we wear black to auspicious events to ward away evil spirits on that occasion?

Coz black absorbs more heat than any other colour and and absorbed light is turned into heat.so u wud sweat badly and then u wud also smell bad and so it wud b inconvenient for ppl around u :P

does that explain?

KP said...

of course u can...who said u cant...In wedding i have seen ppl wearing black suits.......

@ Divya, is truly that the only reason? So then as KP said, why do men wear black suits?

@ KP, very good point. Let's rephrase. Why are women not allowed to wear black sarees at their own wedding while men are allowed to wear black suits?

BTW, both your comments made me chuckle!

@ Lost Weasley, I am probably of your generation so I do not really know. Maybe we should ask our moms.
