Apart from this, it enhances the personality when people wear jewellery in ears, it has also some beliefs. According to Hindu mythology, girls and some boys can pierce their ears before they are five years old.
I faint memories when ears piercing of my sister was carried out. A small function was organised at our home. I was about 10 years old at that time. Some relatives and close friends were invited to this ceremony. My sister was weeping loudly because it really hurt when her ears were pierced. However, it was a memorable day for our family. I was also excited for this event.
