It is not wrong but unhealthy because Money and Pages are really VERY DIRTY smirched with the blood stained hands of butchers and those who deal in the meat/fish market etc. etc. (so a non-vegetarian involuntarily licks the blood of birds, animals and fishes etc. - and no more remains a vegetarian.....) plus they are handled by millions of people (high caste and low caste) with dirty hands (which is bound to cause various diseases...)....

Even in the so-called "gentleman's game" the cricketers applying spit to make the shine (or whatever) are licking one another's spit (vegetarians and non-vegetarians and all the dirt that the ball collects from dirty hands and from the dirty ground...)..... It is a very unhealthy method practiced by the educated and wealthy lot who make so much fuss about hygiene, health, being purely vegetarian etc. etc....

Quite so; that is why bank cashiers use only sponge pads to wet their fingers before counting. Notes pass many hands which get dirty, also many germs might be found on their surface.

Yes it is wrong because bhartiya shastron ke anusaar Books ke sath aaisa karna Vidhya ka apman hai,
money ke sath aaisa karna Lakshmi ka apman hai.
