    I think the question is whether the modern India believes in Astrology or not in this context it is yes.I think we cannot question about how correct astrological prediction is or some other related things.

    I think the poojas before a person goes to a newly bought house is quite common even in Urban India.

    Against :
    Nowadays when technology and science is reveiling the relation of superstitious belief to the reality then i think we must belive that every
    superstious thought is a practical implementation of reality and hence theres nothing called superstition.but there lies a scientific reason behind everything.

    Can u justify killing human beings based upon superstitious belief or killing animals. There are lots of such Superstitious beliefs commonly prevalent in India.

    I don't see any logical or scientific reason behind people stopping in the middle of the road when a cat crosses by . Some beleifs may have a scientific angle to it , but not so many nonsensical beliefs like the ones I have cited above.

    For :
    Modern India's belief in supersition has not decreased. In fact modern technologies are being used in this field also. To start any venture or company or any new work,proper advices are taken from numerologist & astrologist. After debacle of KKR in IPL 2,they have decided to the change the colour of jersey on the advice of Jurmanis so that their fate can change in this edition.There are many instances when people change their name so that it can bring good luck & fame to them.

    Everything is well till we are happy to go with it but problem comes when there is a fear in mind when some of our superstitious or astrological beliefs go against us.People have to understand that "Every Problem has a Solution" so the relevance of all these things with science can be understood and appropriate solutions can be found to sort out the problems.

    For :
    Well it is natural for any person to have a belief in something larger than oneself. However the trouble arises when one blindly starts behaving in terms of this belief. It is sad but education is not serving to inculcate self belief in our times. Hence our country still believes in superstitions and astrology.

    I am sorry ghochu 123 but this happens because people dont believe themselves and run after find the different ways to make things done in an easier or by making less efforts.see we can make things happen in our favour by working till we succeed but normally people get tired after two or three attempts and then thing that something is wrong with my fate so it is not happening but they never thing that there may be something wrong with there
    stratergy or the way there are working to get the appropriate result.

    yes you are right Mr.sbharathindia there are some superstitions in india that has no base that could be only changed by educating people around and furthermore now india is developing we are understanding things.As india's is a vast economy it may take some time to change the mindset of people but it is sure to happen in future as you see that slowly form 20% educated to 40% then to 50% to now 61% and one day it will be 95%.

    thanks for updating.but then tell me how people blindly believe things rather than applying little of there conciousness so that they never get a chance to disappoint themself.so i think people have to think on practical ground.

    There are many instances when people who have changed their named have achieved success. These precedents boldened them to do this kind of with.
    With regard to KKR ,they are a very good site capable of beating any other side in the IPL, yet they were relegated to the last.

    just by changing names if that happens then every one who is wondering for work,everyone who is unhappy with something or the other will change the name and have a great succesful life.there may be people who have changed names many times but nothing happened.
