    For :
    Yes i am for it. I dont think so there is any modern India when it comes to superstitious beliefs and belief in god.It is almost the same only the people mask their feelings and do not say as openly as they did in the earlier period.

    For :
    When it comes to astrology however there is no change at all people believe the same. In one famous TV Debate show NEEYA NAANA(TAMIL VIJAY TV,SUNDAY-9-10.30 PM) some famous astrologers were called and were asked to predict peoples ability their like dislike etc. most(almost 90%) of their predictions turned out to be wrong.

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

    For :
    I agree with the statement . In spite of the fact India has made tremendous progress in the field of science and technology we still are under the influence of superstitions and astrology. In many parts of the country various rituals like 'animal killing' are conducted to appease god . many people believe in astrology . Switch to any news channel and one would find various astrolgers predicting future ans advising people which stone to wear to change their fortune

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

    For :
    I would say modern India still believes in superstitions and astrology because you can see the overwhelming amount of importance it is given in the newspaper. No other article or column is given such space as the astrology section

    superstiton and astrology are not on sam side of a coin
    still many superstitious beliefs exist which are hampering the development of india..caste system beliefs and distrimnation on one caste creed etc are not good for society

    but one would say that the number of people believeing in it is slowly on the decrease. A majority of the people are becoming more spiritual and less superstitious.

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

    For :
    I think the major reason for the superstitious belief is wrong way of taking a religious practice. And some of the religious practices may be relevant at the old times but it will be irrelevant today but people are under the deception that they are the rule and they should follow it. This is one common source of Superstitious belief in India.

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

    For :
    I doubt if the number of people believing in superstition and astrology is on the decrease. Superstition , to to some extent might have lost ground but not astrology. With the no of tv shows on astrology on the rise , it would bring more no of people under its influence. these days , one would find every second guy wearing some or other stone just appease god and for better results in his endeavor

    Yes another evidence is many Cell phone providers are providing Astrology details. It is also making good buisness for them.

    Against :
    Though one can see that during the eclipse everyone goes a little crazy and one hears all sorts of things in the newspaper(i would say it is similar to the Friday the 13th scare of the west) education has changed quite a bit. no longer do people worry about curses or wonder if they should do a najjar nikal ne ka pooja so that their house is safe
