After a baby is born, it is a general practice by the Ancient Indians to pierce the baby’s ears ( for both boys & girls). Technically speaking, It is a part of acupuncture treatment.
Acupuncture and Acupressure are not new to Indians. It is being said that these techniques originally originated in India and later they were conserved and modified by Chinese. Outer part of ears carry a lot of important acupuncture and acupressure points. The point where the ears of a baby are pierced is known for curing asthma. That is why even Ancient Indians both men and women used to wear ear-rings, but now a days most Indians especially Hindus are also not wearing ear-rings. They do not even pierce the ears after first piercing.
The holes in their ears become invisible after as they grow up. Only Indian females wear ear-rings as a tradition.But there are men in some parts of India who still wear ear rings as a tradition even now.
