Every country has its own strange traditions and beliefs. While for most people who do not know about these particular cultures, it may seem a little off the beaten path, but having said that, these traditions have their own legacies and reasons.

LIVE GODDESS!

Nepal is known to worship Live Goddesses. The Nepalese believe in reincarnation and that the Mother Goddess dwells within one of them. So with the help of astrologists and monks, they search for the child within different communities. Once found, she is worshipped!



MARRYING A TREE!

Practiced in India by a lot of traditional communities is the practice of Tree Marriage. Indians largely believe in astrology and superstitions. The tree marriage practice also stems from the same so as to avoid discrepancies in the actual marriage. It is strange, but it is also very true!

APARTMENT OR TRAIN STATION?

Asian countries usually come up with a lot of quirky ideas especially when it comes to infrastructure. Take for instance this monorail path in China. It literally passes through the 6th floor of a building and if anything, is a weird, scary concept that is largely accepted by the locals!



PLANTAIN INSTEAD OF PLATES!

This for once is not strange but super economical and eco-friendly, if we can say so! People living in Asia along coastal towns usually practice two kinds of food traditions - Rice and Fish curries, and eating on Plantain leaves. Traditionally speaking, this could have started because it was just abundantly available. Today ofcourse most important ceremonies would feature the same type of meal!

FINE FOR NOT VOTING!

Now this is something we truly support. Most people end up assuming that fixing a nations problem is the responsibility of a select few people where that is not at all true. Every citizen who has the right to vote, must! Australia has managed to make a rule out of this, if you don't vote here, you could be fined!



A FAMILY BIKE!

There is nothing like lack of space when it comes to Asian families, right? In India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, this type of situation happens all the time where the entire family manages to fit into one bike. Who needs a car, right?

MOTHERS LOVE!

Okay this is totally hilarious. Everyone mother has her own way of reprimanding and loving her kids right? Well turns out one thing is common across cultures of the world. Slipper Throwing - has been reported by people from Spain to India and so many other places. Must be a universal language, eh?

WRESTLING CHAMPIONS!

Bolivian women love to wrestle. Now don't get it wrong, but these women wear their National dresses to fight in the rings and earn money through it. In fact fist fights and wrestling are a popular sport amongst the women here!

EGYPT TRAFFIC!

Most people get super annoyed when people don't follow traffic rules right? Well that's not the case with Egyptians. With a total lack of traffic sense, lets just say you don't want to be stuck in Cairo on a workday!

AGE IS JUST A NUMBER?

Age is calculated quite simply all around the world we thought. Until we learnt about this factor from South Korea. When a child is born in South Korea, its age is counted based on the lunar calender, where every first day of the calender, your age increases by 1. Your birth day is pretty much inconsequential here. As easy way to calculate it is as follows:

YOUR KOREAN AGE:= Real Age + 1 (If your birthday has passed)
YOUR KOREAN AGE:= Real Age + 2 (If your birthday has not yet passed)

What is your Korean Age?
