In Ancient Rome, the left side of the human body was thought of as evil and the right side was good. The Latin word for left is ‘sinister’ which has inspired the English word ‘sinister’ – which suggests something harmful or evil.

  1. Perhaps a connection as to why the left hand was used to clean yourself while right side fed you??

    It’s not only in India that they believe this. I have spoken to many here who vouch that’s the general idea here as well.
