For example when buying a house, one may consult the astrologer to know when and how to by the house. And even though one knows these calculations are completely irrational, people believe in them. At home people dress differently than in the office and also the way people speak, eat and greet changes at work. The moment the mobile phone from work is on again, people change identity.
Rationality at work versus personal religious domain
Another contradiction that workers have to deal with, according to Ilavarasan, is the gap between the rationality of the work environment and the personal religious domain at home. At work one finds a problem and solves it, where at home one may go to the temple and pray.
