Most of the people in India believe astrology. We start few important activities on auspicious time. Opening a business, house warming ceremony, marriages and many other family functions are few examples that we do on auspicious time. There will not be any issue if we consider astrology and take advice from a pundit for those activities.
Astrology Software vs. foolishness
Due to advance in science and technology, astrology is now available online. There are software programs available online to check for astrology.
With the increase in availability of astrology software, foolishness among people is also increasing.
Auspicious time vs. Surgery to patient
This story is a real incident of a business person who requested the doctor to postpone the surgery for a couple of hours as it is not an auspicious time to start operation. Shocked by his request, doctors were speechless for a moment. As the patient was in a serious condition delaying every minute will decrease the probability of saving the patient. The doctor explained the patient’s health condition to the relative(business person). Finally, relatives and well-wishers involved the discussion and convinced him. Meanwhile, he was arguing that he has consulted a pundit and also cross verified on the internet that it is not the time to start operation. He may believe astrology, but his idea of implementing astrology when the patient was in critical condition is foolishness.
Fortunately, the operation was a success. Else, that person’s foolish belief would have won against the science and technology.
I see few young parents want their kid to born on auspicious time. For this, they are requesting doctors to do cesarean before the delivery date. Most of them are well educated. It is foolishness of the parents to believe in such superstitions. Read More
Finally, the revolution in science & technology has also led to increase in SUPERSTITIONS, leading to foolish beliefs and practices.
