It is said that if the kitchen is not in the southeast direction, it will surely not bring any harm upon the family. Also, while cooking, the housewife or the cook must face the East direction. It is also believed that the direction of the ‘Stove’ is also important. Now the very important question is who is going to decide the right direction of the ‘gas stove’ or the ‘facing direction of the cook’ while cooking.
