Rishi Sunak, the first Indian-origin and Hindu Prime Minister of the UK, was seen wearing the sacred red Hindu ‘Kalawa’ thread during his first speech at 10 Downing Street.
Mouli or Kalawa is a cotton red thread roll, considered to be very sacred and used for all religious purposes of the Hindus. The thread is used as an offering of cloth to the deity. The Mouli thread is an integral part of any puja. By tying it on the hand, you win over the enemy and it acts like your defence.
