    Post Online Debate #03 - Modern India still believes in superstitions and astrology.

    For :
    It is definitely true.
    I wonder how highly educated people do go for checking what's there in store for them in future.
    Why just can't they continue with their work and efforts.The fact that they do regularly have a watch on their future is the evidence of the fact that Modern India does still,in this 21st century believes in superstitions and astrology.
    We are aware of the fact that when any important event or ocassion(like an exam/competition)is there on a particular day,people do carry something(like a ganesha's photo or any chain/locket) which they believe might give them positive results.
    All these things aptly prove that ' Modern India still believes in superstitions and astrology.'

    Post Online Debate #03 - Modern India still believes in superstitions and astrology.

    For :
    How many of us know that which dress,pen or watch is lucky and would prefer to wear when we need luck.

    Let it be the love for the letter 'K' of Rakesh Roshan and of Ekta Kapoor or the change in the spelling of the names of celebrities, we find modern India to be superstitious.

    There are industrialists and politicians who prefer a particular numerical order in everything.eg.Car Number plate,Number of cars,a particular date.

    I mean the day we are born starting from all the amulets and holy threads, to "kundlis" and "manglik dos' during marriage and finally to all the ceremonies after death,we are surrounded by superstitions.It is a never ending cycle.

    For :
    "Modern" India does believe in superstitions and astrology.But if you compare the numbers they have certainely come down from what they used to be.Part of it can be attributed to education and the other part is because it is so "uncool" to be superstitious.And if you believe in them be rest assured you would be the discussion topic in all your peers get-togethers.

    yes that's very much true .. switch on your T.V at 9.30 in the morning n u will see each n every news channel broadcasting their predictions which clearly shows that not only rural class people even urban class people are very much interested in predictions of their fate as these channels are mainly broadcasted in urban areas .

    I am not completely against but have a partial stance on this topic. I would rather say modern India is not superstitious but rather much more focussed towards spirituality & being spiritual is what India's uniqueness when compared to other countries. When talking about astrology it is just a fun exercise which most of the people in India do. When there is no loss in knowing something then what is harm in seeing it.

    no it is not the actual case, many people are there who actually see their prediction n then do accordingly, it is not vice-versa which seems to u. It is not always fun for sure.,lots of ways are directed by those astrologers to solve the things if there is any evil omen and actually people does that wasting their money , time n many more. This does reflect their seriousness towards predictions.

    For :
    I do also believe the same coz yet we r going on moon and advancing in technologies rapidally we still follow that our name should have only certain alphabates though it may be grammetically wrong. We hav certain rubbies in our selected or all fingures as told by the astrologer.
    Yes, some of the superstitions are not followed 2day bt few of them are.

    Post Online Debate #03 - Modern India still believes in superstitions and astrology.

    Supersitition and astrology is evading the minds of the people with time.As, literacy is growing in the country. So, the people who used to believe in superstition and astrology are more appeased to the fact that supersition and astrology was the tool used by illiterate's and unaware people of the past to either change the course of their near future or immediate benefit.But nothing of that sort happening making them realise these tools to be hypothetical in nature with no weight in their existence.

    But i am in doubt to say this bcos some of tv channel are dedicated to astrological shows and news paper also reserving space for rashi-bhavisha from very long ago.
