SoCS: Knot again!

The first thing that came to my mind when I read the word knot was the quote I had earlier posted, which tells the meaning of the word marry or even the expression ‘tying the knot‘.

You may have heard the word ‘marry’ as a nautical term. It refers to the sailors’ practice of matching two ropes together to give them greater strength as one.

In my language, when they find a person too roguish in nature, they say that (and I translate it to the best of my ability) it is time for that person to have a nose ring attached. Its another way of saying that they should be married off. It does not mean that they should be tied to a pole 🙂 Nose rings in animals are used to control them and I have no idea how marriage is viewed as a way to control one’s character. If a person doesn’t want to be changed, all efforts including a marriage comes to  naught and the only side effect of that kind of marriage would be that you end up putting another person’s life in trouble too.

Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “naught/knot/not.”  Use one, use ‘em all… you know the drill! Have fun!

  1. Interesting. I went to see The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on Tuesday and I noted the fact that at the wedding, the bride wore a nose ring. Your post kind of puts it into perspective.
    Thanks for this, KG!
    P.S. It’s a great movie!!

    1. Thanks Linda 🙂
      In many of our customs nose ring is sort of a requirement. Women generally wear one.
      With respect to the movie, I am yet to see both the parts of the movies yet 😦 Hopefully will do it sooner.
