Why Blind Faith and superstition are so much Prevalent in India?

Blind Faith, Superstition, India, Prevalent,

From my childhood, I have noticed one thing in people that blind faith and superstition are very common in most parts of India. The blind faith in people is so strong that they don't want to accept the truth even it is brought in front of their eyes. After spending so many years of my life, I still find many people highly dipped in blind faith and superstition. Blind faith can be of many types and it can be on fake Babas, orthodox beliefs or black magic. 

I hope that nobody must have forgotten the women hair cutting episode reported from many parts of India. This news recreated a lot of panic among the common people and soon, the number of such news from different parts of India increased. Due to superstition, people started blaming all this on a witch, and the crowd even killed an old woman because they thought she is a witch. 

The recent episode of Baba Ram Rahim is another example of the blind faith of people on fraud Babas. This fake guru was sentenced to 20 years rigorous punishment, however, his blind followers restored to violence and caused damaged to public and private property in protest to the judgment. To stop the agitating people, police opened fire and more than 30 people got killed and around 1000 got injured. 



On the other hand, this fake Baba was making lots of money by fooling his innocent followers who once had blind faith in him. As more investigations are coming into light, we are learning many new tricks used by him to increase his wealth. This Baba followed no law, and authorities found many irregularities in his ashram. He was running some illegal factories and he has his own currency. 

When such Babas don't follow the right path in life, then how they can tell their followers to move on the right path and do good things in life. But strangely, still there are many people who don't want to accept this truth and they believe that their Guru is innocent. 

I believe that there is some issue is our conditioning and from childhood, we are forced to move on the path which is surrounded by blind faith and superstition. Even today, education has failed to reach many people in India and moreover, there are no such topics added in schools education which can tell students about the dangers of blind faith and superstition. 

The main blame of all this must be put on our leaders and politicians who use such Babas and fake Gurus for their benefit. 

Unless we are able to eradicate the poison of Blind faith and superstition from our system, we can't hope to create a good society.

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is the opposite of the general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than a bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan who has marri…

When you see your content being infringed by other sites and social media platforms?

Today, copyright violation has become a big issue and sometimes, we wake up to see our content which we made after hard efforts is being stolen by some other site or social page by removing your copyright info from it. These online thieves are so daring that they don't fear anything while manipulating your hard work. Because of such online thieves, you sometimes land up sending hundreds of copyright infringement notices. 

Thankfully, all the leading platforms like blogger, Google, Facebook, and Pinterest, do take action by removing these contents. However, I feel that we need a more productive system which can make it difficult for such people to steal our genuine content. The Internet can't be restricted by the borders and it comes under different rules in the different countries. Therefore, many people try to get the advantage of international borders to steal the content. 

I am not only worried about the international thieves but also about the people of my own country who ev…
