We are living in the 21st century and while there is so much that India has achieved, there exist a host of things that leave us stuck in the past. One of the regressive practices includes the belief in superstitions which is based on blind acceptance of supernatural elements or incidents. Hence, actors Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh and Vidya Balan shared their views on superstitions on a radio show – ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN’ on 92.7 BIG FM.
When asked superstitions, DE DE PYAAR DE star Ajay Devgn said, “It is very dangerous. I try to keep myself away from all this as much as I can. Even if it comes in my mind in the slightest manner, I try to break the pattern. Instead of this, one should replace the thought with that if they will do good to people, good will happen to them. This is a very positive feeling, one which will further enhance their quality of life.”
HOUSEFULL 4 star Riteish Deshmukh, who firmly believes in the power of God, said, “There could be different beliefs held by different people, but I personally believe in being grateful for what I have and how my day is spent. It depends on how you perceive things in your life. That’s more important. You take those superstitions as blessings in your life and go–ahead with it.”
Actress Vidya Balan said, “To question its very existence is much more difficult rather than randomly believing in any superstition which doesn’t have any logic in the society. We, as humans with a weak mind, have the tendency to believe it in more, especially in the situation of crisis, which shouldn’t be the case at all. You need to have self-confidence, which is the first and foremost requirement to conquer any challenges in your life. While I believe in traditions, there certainly is a difference between traditions and superstitions. This situation is worse in smaller parts of India where a lack of awareness further leads to misinformation amongst the people.”
Therefore team Glamsham urges all to not to believe in any sort of superstitions which may change your lifecycle.
