There is a recent crze in my country for Feng-shui.
India, being a land of superstitions has always relied a lot on astrologers, vaastu, panditji ka prediction & so on. In this huge list comes Feng-shui too, the Chinese equivalent of Vaastu Shastra.. the Indian science of home making in the most positive & beneficial way possible.
And therein lies the irony.
Im Chinese. My forefathers migrated to India eons ago. That makes me a 3rd generation Indian Chinese. And being so, I know that the amount of importance that Indians attach to feng-shui is ruefully absent in the Indian Chinese. Point being, they do not believe in Feng-shui. They consider it to be something rather wasteful & make fun of the principles put forward in it, as in , placement of chimes or other objects to deflect the evil eye & to attract positive chi (energy).And there are books being written on this ancient art by various indian authors, & they sell like hot cakes! So far, I haven't come across one book on feng-shui by a chinese author in India. Nor have I come across an Indian Chinese who's built his house accroding to it. Except for my father. He's a little old-fashioned I might add. But that just adds it up.
Ironic isnt it?
