Curses, voodoo dolls, talismans, hexes, I wrote this in my book Cry Of the Oppressed women, Chapter Nancy.
I show you a common curse practiced in South East Asia and the Philipines. You see a small bottle with a coloured liquid hanging on a fruit tree. Kids are told not to go near the tree because it is cursed and if you go near or pick the fruits, you will be cursed too.
In actual fact, there is no curse, it just a way that the tree owner frightened anyone who steals his fruit. Over time, some people believe in them.
