On the occasion of Mahashivratri, Taimur Ali Khan, one of the cutest star kids and the elder son of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan was spotted sporting a traditional look. Paparazzi managed to take a picture of the four-year-old who was seen in a traditional third eye drawn on his forehead.
With three horizontal white lines and a vertical black eye drawn on his forehead, his hair was tied so that the traditional tattoo was visible. The picture was shared by ETimes on their Instagram handle. The picture showed Taimur in a navy blue printed t-shirt and a lighter blue coloured shorts with blue shoes and white socks.
According to Hindu mythology Shiva is often referred to as Tryambaka Deva which translates to the "three-eyed Lord". The sun is believed to be his right eye, the moon his left eye while fire is his third eye. Shiva’s other two eyes indicate his activity in the physical world but his third eye looks beyond the obvious. On March 11, 2021 Hindu devotees around the world are celebrating the pious occasion of Mahashivratri. As the name suggests, it is a day dedicated to Lord Shiva, the God of Destruction, and one who is the third in the Hindu Holy trinity of Lord Brahma, the God of Creation, and Lord Vishnu, the God of Preservation.
Shivaratri marks the convergence of Shiva and Shakti, which is the convergence of masculine and feminine energies which balances the world. Unlike other Indian festivals, which are about fervour and festivities, Maha Shivratri is a more solemn affair, marked with retrospection and meditation.
Taimur Ali Khan recently became an elder brother after Kareena and Saif welcomed their second child. However, unlike Taimur, the star couple has decided to keep their second son’s privacy protected.
