Funny Indian Superstitions!



India is known as a developing country and the next big superpower. But India has often been heavily criticized internationally for the stupid superstitions in the country. Earlier when there was no spread of education people themselves made up several things relating to natural phenomenons and some of them were not even related to the calamities. Some of them:

1)DONT CROSS SOMEONE ESPECIALLY WHEN ONE IS SLEEPING

Yes, you might have heard this several times. It is actually believed that when someone crosses you while sleeping, you would get a short height. This is absolutely ridiculous because there is no scientific or practical proof for it.

2) IF A MENSTRUATING WOMEN LOOKS AT A BOY, SHE WOULD BECOME PREGNANT

Our society has always been known as a male-dominated society. The above superstitions and many more leads us to think that such things were always done to oppress the females. No one can prove it.

3)IF YOU SNEEZE THEN YOU SHOULD STOP BEFORE YOU DO A THING, ELSE THE WORK WILL BE UNSUCCESSFUL 

Yes, it is the age-old superstition. Now let me tell you that it is useful and scientific but only to an extent. When you sneeze, your heart stops. Hence you should not proceed. But the problem is that why should we not do a thing when the neighbor or our family member sneezes. It is only right to an extent, but as we are humans and that to Indians, we ultimately make a good thing bad.

4) IF A BLACK CAT CROSSES YOUR PATH, THEN YOU SHOULD NOT WALK ON THAT PATH

Yes, another age-old superstition. Continuing on that path is a bad omen. Actually, it was believed that black cats were associated with witches. The poor thing must think about what they had done.

5) GOD EXISTS

Before you lash out on me describing this claim as stupid, please read further. Nero saw Rome in fire and was happy with it. Stalin, Hitler, and Genghis Khan saw millions of people get killed and were happy with it. If God exists why does he be happy with all the bad things that happen in this world? Why did he make this world in the first place? What is the difference between Nero and God if both of them are happy with bad things? I think that people only made this up because they didn't know how the world was formed, the theory of evolution, and many more things.
