Devika's "Vallae Kappu Vila" - Malaysia
7 / 16


Three types of rice, namely yoghurt rice, tamarind rice and sweet ponngal, will be tied in white cloth and presented to Devika. She needs to only choose one of it and open it. Tamarind and yoghurt rice means it's a baby boy, while sweet ponggal means it's a baby girl. This is the ancient practice of knowing the sex of the child those days without any modern pregnancy scanning. Devika got the tamarind rice and true enough it's a baby boy as how it showed in the doctor's scan.
