Lol!Or maybe you should study the Vedas at the first place to get the gist of the Vedik society and ideals instead of wasting our and your time in this forum.
Veda said this blah blah blah
Manu said that blah blah blah
Blah blah ..... blah blah .....Lol!
The way the average person felt the Vedic society was through the imposed four fold Hindu caste system, as laid out in the sacred Hindu law book - Manusmrithi. That is how Vedic Hinduism manifested in one's daily life.
Spinsterhood was practiced among the Brahmins who brought Hinduism into Kerala. Polyandry is even mentioned in Mahabaratha of North India, as being practiced by upper castes. Matrilinear practice seems to appear in Kerala only after people became Hindus. In any case, Hinduism and its laws are indifferent to such practices; so there is no point in measuring Hinduism using such parameters.Adding more.
Practice of 'Sambandham' would be considered extremely scandalous and downright illegal in rest of the caste society of the country.
Only eldest son of a Namboodari would marry a Namboodari women and rest of the girls would remain unmarried virgin throughout their lives which is again a scandalous practice for rest of the Hindu society.
Matrelineality, polyandry, forced spinsterhood etc are not feature of upper caste society in rest of India.
Yeah, that is true. And further to that was the indigenous/dravidian system of castes. We have a saying in Hindi - 'Ek karela neem chadha' - bitter gourd thriving on a neem tree, makes it even more bitter. That is why the whole thing became so bad.The way the average person felt the Vedic society was through the imposed four fold Hindu caste system, as laid out in the sacred Hindu law book - Manusmrithi.
